Which size should I buy?

WHY THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP 50/50 IS SAFER*?
Usually parents transition their babies out of swaddling by using a conventional wrap, they leave one arm out and then later leave the second arm out. There are potential dangers with using conventional wraps for transitioning as the blankets/bedding can unravel. Unraveling or loosening can pose a tangling, suffocation and choking hazard to the baby.
Providing the parent has used the right sizethe Love To Swaddle UP 50/50 has a snug fit and is ergonomically designed to fit thebaby, and therefore reduces the risk of tangling, choking or suffocation.
HOW IS THE FIT OF THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP 50/50 DIFFERENT TO THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP ORIGINAL(previously called Wrap Me Up)?
The top half of the 50/50 is the same as the ORIGINAL but the bottom half is slightly wider which helps the baby get used to not being so snugly wrapped. This also makes the 50/50 a great option for babies with hip issues or a cast.
The bottom half is reminiscent to a conventional sleeping bag. As you transition the bub by taking one wing off at a time they slowly and smoothly end up in a Summer weight sleeping bag.
HOW DO I USE THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP 50/50?
Transition your baby in three easy steps
1. Use your 50/50 just like the Love To Swaddle UP ORIGINAL (2 wings attached)
2. When your baby is ready to transition remove one wing. One arm is free and one arm is still swaddled.
3. After about three weeks its time to let the other arms loose! Simply remove the wing and now your baby has graduated to a soft summer weight sleeping bag!
