Everyone is recommending the muslin blankets for swaddling. I thought I would share with you this product that I found. It seems really easy...you just zip it up.
I'm a FTM so I have no experience. Anybody else used this product?

I think it ends up depending on how tight of a swaddle your baby needs and his/her size.  My son needed a pretty secure swaddle and he was too small for any of the swaddler-type products, so we had to swaddle him with a blanket to get the snug-swaddle he needed.

I used the woombie with my youngest ds and it was awesome!  my babies never liked to be tightly swaddled, and I could never keep them from escaping out of any of the other swaddlers I used, or even the muslin blankets.  Plus, the stretch to the fabric was really nice in the way that it allowed ds to move his arms and legs a bit, but was tight enough for him not to startle.

 

I'd highly recommend the woombie, but be advised that they run really small.  I used the newborn size for about 6 weeks and my baby outgrew their mega baby size by 5 months.  He was 9 lbs at birth and is 20 lbs and 28 in at 6 months old.

 

Anyway, they're well worth the money imo.
