My kids always slept better as babies when they were swaddled. Jason loved it and he was swaddled until he outgrew all the blankets, I think around 6 months old. Jakey hated it. Although he slept better he just did not like being all wrapped up and always managed to wriggle his way out. I would wrap him in a receiving blanket then in a Swaddle Me blanket, with a safety pin to keep it closed, and at 2 months old he would still wriggle his way out. I finally gave it up around 4 months old with him. I always wanted to try one of those special swaddle blankets that people swore by.
My friend Amanda is having a giveaway for an adorable baby swaddling blanket and gift certificate from Ju Ju Beane Boutique. I'd love to get this very cute swaddle blanket.
