A few days old and contemplating how to bust out of that lame attempt at a swaddle

All About Swaddling

Before I got pregnant, I'd never even heard of swaddling, much less why it's useful, how to do it properly, etc. When Mr. Carrot and I took our newborn care class and were taught how to swaddle, I joked that if Baby C is anything like her mama, she will hate being constrained. Lo and [...]

Adventures in Swaddle Weaning

Swaddling was one of those baby-things that I never thought much about prior to having a baby of my own.

When to Stop Swaddling

Olive hit three big milestones all on the same day this week - she got her first tooth, we stopped swaddling her cold turkey, and she slept through the night (11 straight hours!). A 2 week old double swaddled Olive. As a sleep-deprived parent, the milestone I'm obviously most happy about is sleeping through the [...]
