Last night, Brian and I were talking about swaddling a baby. I was laughing because I knew he had no idea what that even meant. After I told him that it was about the blanket, he said he wanted to show me what he would do if he were to swaddle a baby. I thought, oh this will be good! I got out a square dish towel and a wooden spoon for his demonstration. Well... it took him ONE try and it was the best swaddle I'd ever seen! haha. It was like textbook perfect. I was stunned. A few minutes later, he confessed he had just read about swaddling in his book the night before which included step by step pictures.... haha!

Hahah, that's awesome!
DH surprised me after DD was born. He changed every diaper for two weeks and took care of pretty much everything but feeding. I was in rough shape after my c-section and he was awesome! I'm still not sure if he was reading stuff or if it's all natural... cause he doesn't read.

My husband cheated and bought a bunch of Halo Swaddlers, so all he had to do was fold over and velcro.

That's cute!

I'm terrible at swaddling. My son liked to be swaddled super tight so DF was designated swaddler because he was a pro at it.
