I originally wanted to title this post “Baby Straight Jacket to the Rescue” but figured that some people might not share my sense of humor and as a worse case scenario I might have the local police knocking on my door!
My mother told me that a few of my cousins who have recently had children recommended SwaddleMe Baby. We didn’t think much of it. We would swaddle baby boy (BB) in a receiving blanket and be on with it. He really liked it.
However the other night he was just throwing a fit with his arms flailing about and a receiving blanket wasn’t doing it. Apparently the arm flailing scares them. So M went and busted out one of the packages of SwaddleMe’s we had and we put him in one. Literally when it’s done it looks like he’s in a straight jacket.
To date it has been one of the better nights of sleep I’ve got. However last night was a bit challenging. BB was still in his SwaddleMe, but he managed to get his arms out. I think this is because the SwaddleMe stuff we are using is for larger babies and he’s still less than 5 lbs. If we had the premie version I think he’d be fine.
Any how I give these things 5 out of 5 stars! But if money is an issue I’m sure swaddling in a receiving blanket can do just as good.
