Reid is a little escape artist. I've got the Halo Swaddle Sacks with Velcro, and he still manages to wiggle his arms free most of the time. I still reswaddle him every time because I don't want his startle reflex to kick in and wake him up when I'm laying him down, but whenever I go back in there, his little hands are out. When it comes to sleep and comfort measures, he is so different from his brother. Figures, right? I thought being a BTDT mom would make this time around a piece of cake. Nope; I can basically use my memories of what worked for T as a template for what not to do this time. Lol
Alissa DD got out of all swaddle so easily except the miracle blanket. Best money we ever spent and it ripped so we got a new one for Rylee. It was a life saver with DD because her movements woke her right up and it was hell!!!
I'm probably going to jinx myself but this little guy is so amazing.. so different than Liliana! He's a little lover.. snuggler.. no spitting.. no colic.. awesome eater.. I remember going through some PRETTY rough days with Li so I'm completely counting my blessings with him being so different!!
Some pics from the past 30 minutes. :)
Adorable! So glad he's been easy for you.
Aww so cute! An oz a day is terrific, my pedi said they look for 1/2 to 1 oz per day. Glad he is easy for you!
Yay for gaining! Have you been supplementing or just pumping and doing what the LC told you to?
My kid is probably always cold; I usually just have him in cotton pajamas; we had some hot days where he was just in a onesie and sometimes socks (his feet tend to be cold). I never put more than one layer on him. At night he wears a sleeper/gown and a cotton swaddler.
It's hard for me to tell what he needs because I still have those annoying night sweats so I'm an inaccurate person when it comes to temp at night.
Awww such cute pics
I know what you mean about wanting to make sure the baby is wearing enough clothes.. I usually put him in socks and long sleeve / footed onesie and of course his hat. Then swaddle him then lay a blankie over him. He seems to be happy with that! :)
