One of the best inventions we have discovered since the birth of our sweet Liam is the swaddle me. We have swaddled Liam tight every night before bed since he was a newborn :-) He has loved the swaddle and slept so well with it!
He has been such a wonderful sleeper! He has slept through the night since he was just under two months old! He has taken 2-3 two hour naps in the daytime as well. But, all those naps were swaddled tight to keep his hands away from his face. We
nicknamed him "Burrito" because that is what we think he looks like in his swaddle.
But, as they always say...all good things must come to an end. As of the last week, the swaddle has gone from a calming experience, to one that seems to anger him. He wanted those arms free and would fight until he got them out. Needless to say, this was not a day we had looked forward to reaching.
So, as of Tuesday night, Liam has kissed his swaddles goodbye. The first night (Tuesday) he actually did great! He went to bed around 9:00 that night and woke up about every 3-4 hours. But, all we did was replace the paci in his mouth and he would drift off again.
Last night, he slept the whole night (9:00-7:20) swaddle free and without mommy having to get up with him! So far, this transition has been so much easier than we thought. Let's hope he keeps up the good work!!
My favorite part of kissing the swaddle goodbye is he gets to enjoy these cute jammies at night!!!
