I bought the larger, warmer version of SwaddleMe when my son who at 2months of age outgrew the small cotton versions. As the weather cools, we have used this fleece swaddle more often. It is warm and so only a onesie or light cotton pajama is all we use underneath it. Seems to work well. Since it hasn't gotten that cold yet, we still use a cotton one rather than the fleece, but are likely to use the fleece more often in the winter--providing he still fits it!
These blankets are the most important thing you can have for a newborn. The way they swaddle keeps the baby comfortable and helps them sleep better. These are very soft an cute- great price also.
I've tried many types of swaddle sleep sacks for my baby. Most others don't have long enough Velcro to stay secure, and the baby wiggles out of the sack. The Halo swaddle sleep sack has plenty of Velcro to keep my little Houdini swaddled. The zipper opens at the foot first so diaper checking is easy. I gave 4/5 stars because it's a little tricky to put on a squirming baby at first. I have the hang of it now, but my husband still gets tied up. And also, because the Velcro is strong and long, it grabs onto everything in the wash if I don't make sure it's attached to the sack. I've destroyed a blanket or onesie or two.
