I wish I had one of these swaddling blankets when I was a baby. Then maybe I would have had a chance at being completely balanced and normal. Whatever normal means.
Yes I was kidding. But it is true swaddling blankets have been all the rage these years. Some brilliant person found out that babies are more at ease and funkier when constrained and wrapped up like a present. They sleep better and longer and cry less. Because they really are the needy, insecured noise makers we think they are. :)
2-different sides with hoodies on each.
It was fun & pretty painless to make this nevertheless, and friends (you know who you are), if you are expecting a beanie of your own please ask for one from me. I’ll be more than happy to make you one. As long as you give your first born to me.
Yes I was kidding again.
Second or third born ones works just as well. Offer while stocks last.
Ok so how do you swaddle with this blankie. Let me bring on my assistant for a free demo.
First put baby on blanket with head towards the hoodie (duh!)
Fold up the opposite corner with the other hoodie and tuck baby’s chubby layered legs under it.
Fold down from the left hand corner and secure from baby’s right shoulder (doesn’t matter which side you start from)
Bring up the bottom left corner (same side where you started from) to tuck over baby’s left shoulder.
Repeat on the other side and fold down from the right hand corner and secure from baby’s left shoulder
Pull the remaining corner tight..
and wind around the back..
using the corner to tuck into the blankie.
Presto! you have a happy contented baby!
At least for a few precious minutes.
