Most baby swaddling wraps are quite light weight, this one is a little heavier as I used two layers of vintage chenille. If you keep your house warm this might be to heavy but if your house is like my house you could use this at night. Neither of the chenilles are really thick but it is very soft on the inside and colorful for you to look at with a piece of hot pink Morgan Jones bedspread on the outside. It will wrap around the back completely as you can see, even though my model is a little on the wide side. The consensus is a baby will sleep longer and better if swaddled.
