Swaddling an older baby

I had one of those "Swaddle ME" Velcro wrap bags for my baby when she was little. It no longer fits and a blanket isn't as convenient so what products do they make to do the same for bigger babies/ toddlers?

  • I know it's me but I always thought swaddeling past about 1 month was creepy. Creepy becuz I am claustrophobis lol and I keep think the baby is saying"for the love of all that is holy where did those wavy things go-they fell off!" or "Holy crap I cannot move they think I am a sausage" I know ,I'm a weirdo.

  • We have a woombie or a kiddopatumus (I think it is called, or something like that) Fits my BIG 5 month old anyway

  • i didn't swaddle my daughter after we came home from the hospital... she would get mad if she was wrapped up, so we just lay a light blanket over her from the waist down at nite...
