To Swaddle or not to Swaddle..That is the question.

Well, here's the deal. My son is addicted to his swaddle. For those of you that don't know what a swaddle is it is a straight jacket for babies. The first time I saw it done I thought "Is that legal?" It felt so inhumane. But, let me tell you, it works. Cooper loves it. You can't make it tight enough. As soon as he wiggles his way out of it, he wakes up crying. He wants it tight. I mean TIGHT. This is the only way I can get him to sleep. I know sounds a little rigid. Anyway, imagine my horror when I realized he was outgrowing the swaddle. What?? This can't be happening. I set out on a mission to find an extra large swaddle. To my surprise, not only do they make one, it goes up to 18 pounds. So, we should be good for awhile. I want it on record that Cooper was happiest when swaddled so when he gets older he can't use it against us. ..:)

so precious! Owen never liked his arms pinned down, so we didn't get the benefit of the swaddle!!
