A couple of months ago, Amy was kind enough to lend me her Miracle Blanket. Breanna slept best swaddled, but no receiving blanket in the world seemed to hold her in. The Miracle Blanket is very cool and resembles a baby staight jacket. I would leave her left arm free so she could suck on her hand, but the rest of her body was snugly confined. This seemed to help her sleep rather well, especially at night.
Alas, soon I’m going to have to pop it back in the mail to return to her because Breanna is slowly outgrowing it. I hope she’ll be able to sleep without it, but I guess she’ll learn since she’s already pulling a Houdini in her sleep lately. I almost always find that one leg is free by the time I’m heading off to bed, such as this shot I risked taking a few nights ago.
It’s not unusual to see her other arm free as well, and once she wakes up for a feeding, she usually has both arms and both legs waving about with only her tummy still covered up. For someone who is greatly comforted by swaddling, she sure makes it difficult to keep her that way!
