I've never used a special swaddling blanket for my babies before and I really hate when their swaddle gets all loose. The miracle blanket is supposed to really keep the baby swaddled but the blanket is about $30. If anyone has tried it and thinks it's not all hype, can you let me know. I was thinking of getting one if it's really worthwhile but I don't know anyone IRL who's used it and it seems like a lot to spend on a blanket.

I don't know anything about miracle blankets, but I've heard good things about Cozy Cocoons: http://www.cozycocoon.com/cc.html

I cant get passed the whole strapping the babies arms down with the miracle blanket.

I have purchased several cozy cocoons. I would recommend those.

which one of those on their website is the best to start with?

I could see how helpful this could be for nursing too, to keep their hands out of the way while latching on...or I it could be a hindrance too I suppose...

Would you keep them in this while in a sling too?

I think swaddling and slinging at the same time would be overkill. It might also overheat the baby depending on the kind of wrap you are using.

I forget the style of my cozy cocoon however it is the one that is closed at the bottom. I think the one that is open at the bottom is for a larger baby?

The three I have are tshirt like material. The only thing i wonder about is pulling it down for diaper changes at night.

I have heard all great things about them though and i couldnt stand swaddling with the blankets

I even got the leopard one for halloween

Princessenoire--Thanks for showing me this blanket. I like the design much better than the MB, that one looked like the baby was wrapped up like a mummy. It really would bother me to see my baby wrapped up that tight. The cozy cocoon looks alot more comfy for the baby. These ones are really cute and nice colors too.

ArlyShellandKai--the style open at the bottom is avail in small, med and large. I can see how the one that is all enclosed would be a PIA to take off at night. I like the open style alot but will probably also get one of the enclosed sacks for the day.

I'm personally one who would just use a regular blanket. Why spend the $$ on a special one when a good old baby blankey does the trick?? Also, not all babies like to be swaddled so if you stick to what you have you don't end up with something you don't need.
