Review: Kiddopotamus SwaddleMe

2009 July 20
by MieVee @ MummysReviews.com

Baby V outgrew his Bumble Bee swaddles, so I started searching for large swaddles and finally found Kiddopotamus SwaddleMe (large) at The Baby Loft. It is rare that babies still need to be swaddled at 5 months old in order to sleep well. Baby V certainly needs a lot of sense of security when sleeping!—

Update on 31 May 2010:

Vee weaned himself off the swaddle at 6.5 months old.

Pros:

  • Good fit for large babies (supposedly up to 9.98kg). Baby V is 8+kg and the swaddle fits him snugly, with room for growth.
  • Comfortable 100% cotton fabric
  • Smart design that allows swaddling in car seat or stroller (small hole behind the leg pouch for belt strap to go through)
  • Good quality velcro tabs (unlike the ones in Bumble Bee, which harden and flare out after washes)

Cons:

  • Arm flaps are a bit short, so if the swaddle is wrapped too high on the baby, his left arm can easily slip out

Note: The cotton fabric is relatively thick, so baby needs to be dressed lightly (e.g. in a short sleeve bodysuit and diaper) in a cool room.

Get Your Own

Kiddopotamus SwaddleMe is available in most major baby stores. Beware of counterfeits as I’ve seen one in Malaysia, using the same name “SwaddleMe”.

    I bought the ones with colourful designs for my son to be used in the hospital. The material was quite thick so it was perfect for hospital use.. I got them for B$39.90 each. It is certainly much easier to “assemble” compared to the conventional ones (towels/ blankets) :)
