Every time I get to review a product intended for a tiny baby, my heart skips a beat. I love tiny babies. I really do. And though my three are much more than enough for me, I still get wistful when a great baby product comes to my door. Especially when it’s something new by a CMP fave like Ergobaby.

The new Ergobaby Swaddler is a lovely addition to the product line of a company that has been calming babies for years. And just like their celebrated carriers, this swaddler aims to keep babies’ hips and legs in a proper ergonomic position. Think frog legs and you’ll know what I’m talking about. 

It’s a rather complicated-looking contraption, but looks can be deceiving. A quick watch of the video (oh man, the adorable baby in it will be my undoing!) or a read of the instructions and it’s really quite easy to use. 

I love that baby’s arms can stay wrapped during diaper changes, but I question the use of Velcro to hold things together. Someone really needs to invent a new fastener that won’t wake up a sleeping baby in the middle of the night. 

Until they do, though, at least with this lovely swaddler you know they’ll fall back to sleep right away. –Stephanie S.

The Ergobaby Swaddler is available in two sizes so you can swaddle babies right on up to 18 lb.
