the night swaddle

i posted about swaddling awhile back and what i never told you was that we gave in immediately after posting that and started swaddling avery when we put her down for the night. except for the odd time that she might wiggle out of the blanket in the night and i have to get up and re-wrap her, she's sleeping so much better. i feel like she's getting a much better quality sleep.

here's a picture i took of her the other night before i went to bed. we are the "do not do" poster at the hospital where they teach you to put nothing in your baby's bed with them. the pillow helps keep her blanket tucked so she doesn't wiggle out in the night though it kind of takes away from the cute bedding (that you're ALSO not supposed to have in the bed with an infant...)

Glad to hear that the swaddling is working! We had wedges on either side of Jacob so that he couldn't roll into his tummy and scream until we flipped him. A moms gotta do what a moms gotta do.
