    Having said all this, swaddling cloths are easy to make--buy some light-weight fabric (usually cotton) and hem the edges and voila, you have a swaddling blanket. I know some people even use scarves in the summertime because they are sheer and not as hot.
    This is what I've seen here in HK.

    That's why I liked the muslin squares for my 2nd.
    He was born in June, and I found they were perfect for the hot weather.

    This will partially be a matter of opinion, but my favorite is the Miracle Blanket. I've given at least 2 away as gifts and have a few myself. :)

    I second or third or fourth (where are we up to??) the miracle swaddle too. We used it in this temperature too but needed to have the aircon on (which you would anyway in this heat). Keeps them tightly snug and until our bubba was a bit older, he couldn't houdini out of it!

    We bought some rectangular, brushed cotton type swaddling blankets from Eugene that worked very well. They're sold as a box of 3 and the brand is something like "Bubba ..." or "Bubble .." (can't remember exactly). We were given a miracle blanket but we preferred the rectangular ones as we could pull and tuck to adjust the tightness according to our baby's size.

    Not sure how well it would work in hot weather though. But we always had the air con on anyway...

    Good thing is that you can still use these blankets when you're out and about and they were big enough for us to swaddle our baby until we stopped swaddling him at 5 months.

    PurpleFlower,

    Are you thinking of Bubba Blue Muslin Wraps?
