I meant to post it here sooner, but better late than never. This is also a shameless plug for Aden & Anais muslin swaddling wraps(which I DON'T sell) that we love SO MUCH. I honestly think that every parent needs to give them a try, and I'm not exaggerating. After all, we have 3 kids and by now we are all about necessities. Oh, and they are also sold at Target now for and even better price with some exclusive designs. I didn't try those personally, but hope they are the same amazing quality!
We stopped swaddling Anya at around 10 months, but due to recent requests I took some photos and turned them into quick instructions on the swaddle that we did for A since she was about 3 months old.
I initially planned to do it with a teddy bear, but it was too small (newborn size) and I decided to risk it with A. Surprisingly, she didn't mind at all, stayed still the whole time, either remembering or wondering what was going on and how it was going to end :)
Check out this Swaddle gallery for instructions on how we did Anya's all-night swaddle.
I hoping to post either some photos or a video of a different swaddling techniques that worked better for teeny tiny newborns.
