Swaddles. The options are seriously endless. If you're like me, I get completely overwhelmed and feel like I need a "rent-it-for-a-night" program so that I can find "the one". I literally have 26 different swaddles in a dresser drawer that just didn't work for us. I also assumed that everything that worked for Declan would also be stellar for Crew. Come to find out..that was not the case at all so I was on a desperate hunt for something that I prayed would give me a couple more hours of sleep a night.
Well, guess what mamas? I found the dynamic duo of products that work like magic for us. Recently, I posted all about our Dockatot experience. Missed it? Go check it out here. . Anyways, a fellow mama raved about The Nested Bean Zen Swaddle. In my head I envisioned another swaddle just like the tons gathering dust bunnies in the drawer, but it was worth a try to check it out and see what made it so special.
This swaddle is super unique because it actually is designed to mimic your touch..something I have never seen in swaddles I have come across. It features lightly weighted pads on the sides and chest to give your sweetness a sense that you are there. Crew loves his mama. He sleeps best when he is physically on me or next to me, so this gives him that sense of security that I am there with him, but I am actually washing dishes...JUST KIDDING! Actually taking a nap too! HAHA.. You can actually see the weighted pads above. Read more about it here.
...and then swaddle up those little arms or leave them out. I love that his legs can move freely in here, allowing him to kick away if he feels the sudden urge to bust out some energy.
This particular swaddle is 0-6 months and features a "2 size" design. There is an inner "pouch" for those itty bitty fresh bebes that their little legs can easily slip into for a secure fit.
And did I mention that they are soft-as-butter?! Haha..I will take one in my size please!
