Amazing Miracle Blanket

We quickly found that it was difficult (or nearly impossible) to bundle a baby in a way that keeps him snug all night during restless sleep with a normal, square receiving blanket. Many of our friends mentioned that their pediatricians suggested swaddling, but they found it very difficult to do properly. They quickly became frustrated and gave up swaddling. One thing everyone agreed on was that no matter how well you swaddle them, babies seem to have an incredible ability to get at least one hand free to scratch their face right about the time you finally fall back to sleep. Additionally, if you watch your baby sleep, you’ll notice her twitching often. This is called “The Moro Reflex”. If the baby is not wrapped snugly, this twitching causes her arms to flail, which eventually wakes her up. However, like most parents, we didn’t feel comfortable using safety pins, Velcro, tape, belts, or straps on our sleeping baby. We knew there had to be a better way, but there wasn’t! So one day, out of pure frustration, I went to the fabric store and bought a couple yards of high quality flannel and made a prototype of a blanket that was taking shape in my mind. I had my wife wrap our baby first with a quick explanation of how to do it. It took her a total of about 5 seconds. The baby loved it, and my wife looked at me and said, “WOW! I think we have something here!” We used the blanket until Jacob was just over 3 ½ months old and he slept well every night.
