    Will you be swaddling your new LO? Have you done it with other babies? Does one wrap work better than another in your opinion?

    I use to like the "thermal" type blankets to wrap up ds, they have a slight stretch to them. Ds to this day has to have those blankets to sleep with and usually he folds them up and lays his head on one. I will be buying some of those this time again.

    I got a few of those kind so I hope they work well with this LO like they did for your son. I've never used wraps before but I am determined to use them this time. I'm hoping they help baby NOT cosleep. I've had a h3ll of a time with DS2 and cosleeping! He is a very anxious kid with asthma and I just can't get him in his own bed. :/

    We swaddled the crap out of Simon! LOL!! We used nonstretch large receiving blankets. He got really hot so we didnt want anything too thick. We stopped around 6 months.

    We swaddled with DD. Because she was born early, we were able to use receiving blankets for a long time but once she grew out of those, we used these swaddle wraps. We had them in thin and fleece material and they worked well. When she wanted her arms out or for it to be looser, we'd use our Aden & Annis muslin blankets. They're huge so they work great.

    ETA: We'll defiantly swaddle with this baby so long as he enjoys it.

    DS did hate having his arms swaddled he always worked them out. He was a challenging baby (and very strong willed child) all around. We will see this time around. Always swaddled dd and it was great, we just learned to not swaddle her too warm!

    I am definitely going to try swaddling this baby. DS hated having his arms held in place and would not go to sleep until I loosened the receiving blanket around him so he could have his arms above his head. DD loved swaddling and slept through the night from 6 weeks on as long as she was swaddled. I am really hoping this LO takes after her sister!

    I was given Kiddpotamus (sp?) swaddle blankets with DD, but she was born in July and they are thin material. I have been given a fuzzy fleece one for this LO but I can't think of what brand it is right now. I like the velcro and zipper ones as I could never wrap a receiving blanket tight enough for an effective swaddle.

    I just used a regular baby blanket to wrap up my first daughter. She wouldn't go to sleep unless she was as tight as a burrito!
