In prep for Ladybug, I ordered a Miracle Blanket off of Ebay, so we would be prepared! Krash used to break out of his swaddles with his crazy arms, and I heard the Miracle Blanket was perfect for solving this problem with it's genius arm flaps! Well, I LOVE the Miracle Blanket, but as with all things....it's NOT about ME!
Ladybug is 2 weeks old now, and we swaddled her until a few nights ago. She was sleeping restlessly and seemed to have tummy pains. We guessed it was because she was bound tightly and possibly she was one of the few newborns who preferred to sleep with legs bent and arms out. We were right! We put her in her sleep sack instead of the swaddle and she went from sleeping 2-2 1/2 hours to 3-3 1/2 hours during the night! She also seemed to have much less pain, she slept more peacefully.We got her wonderful sleep sack from TJ Maxx- but you can find them all over the place. I love that this one is lightweight cotton on the outside and a thin Minky (really soft) on the inside. Perfect and snugly but not too heavy and hot.
