I wanted to share bc I found a miracle product that more than doubled the sleep I can get. I was looking around on the website for my local baby boutique and there is a list of Top 10 Must Have items. The first one was the Nested Bean Zen Swaddle, which I had never heard of. It has a small pouch of beans that put slight weight on the chest and the sides are filled with beans. It is supposed to simulate touch/being held. With Lena being up 4-5 times a night, I was willing to try anything. The store had it for $30, Amazon had it for $40, so I sent DH to the store to pick it up. From the first night, Lena has only been up once a night. We have gotten up to 5 hours of sleep straight. AMAZING! I definitely think it is worth a shot. We were using a Swaddle Me before that and it did nothing, which is a shame bc we already had 3. But really glad we bought this.
Ooo! I'm going to look this up right now, or at least try to find a DIY version if I can't find one in store near me. Anna isn't a terrible sleeper, but we definitely have trouble when we lay her down in her bassinet. She sleeps great in our arms or when I lay her on the boppy (yes, I know, it says not to let baby sleep on the boppy, but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do and it's only for her short naps in the day time) so I know she loves the feeling of being held (like every other baby on the planet). Thanks for the tip!
