I had bought the muslin swaddle blankets a few weeks back when I was asking about keeping Avery's hands warm, but it turned out to be a big waste. If I try swaddling her she'll get so frustrated she can't move she consistently wakes herself up screaming until I take it off. I've started just folding the blankets in half and laying them over the bottom half of her body.
Misha has hated swaddling from the beginning, but really it was a time that we swaddled him really tightly, then he slept 5-6 hours and when I touched him he was burning up and it scared me! So that was sort of the end of swadding for us... We've become huge risk takers and started putting him on his stomach to sleep (after a long case study with naps); it keeps his arms from flailing around and waking him up, and he definitely sleeps more soundly.
That's so sweet! Hey in case you don't know, usually the ladies who make the siggies like you to put a little blurb at the bottom that they were the ones who made it. Such as, "Thanks ______ for my awesome/beautiful/great (etc) siggy" or something like that. Just something to show who did the work for it. Something I read when I was looking to have a siggy made one time.
We didn't swaddled in the beginning but around 8 weeks Brian's arms became super active and we were really struggling to get him to sleep. We have been swaddling since then every sleep. It doesn't make him sleep any longer but definitely helps him to fall asleep quicker. Hope we are able to wean him off it soon!
