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.
- 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)
- 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.

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