Swaddle experiment results

The nurses plan is to stop swaddling her at the end of month 3 or 4 because she will be too strong, however Carolyn is wiggling out of her swaddle on occasion now.  Could be because of all of her strength training exercises lately  🙂 We  tried swaddling her in the blanket and then wrapping her velcro swaddle sack wrap around her arms on top of the swaddle. This gives extra strength to the sides where she is wiggling to get her hands free. It worked great last night. She felt more secure and did not move or realized resistance was futile? She slept better and was not as sleepy at her first am feeding as usual because she got more uninterrupted sleep at night and so did we.  (She slept until 3:10 – her longest yet – Dad).
