*Anyone have a favorite item you couldn't live without for your newborn?
"Mom Is That A Straight Jacket?"
This is what Kaleb asked me when he saw Reyn in the contraption pictured below. It made me laugh cause it really kind of is. It's also saved me completely when it comes to night time sleeping. Reyn is Houdini when it comes to swaddling him in a blanket. He can get out no matter how tight I wrap him- but this handmade swaddler (made by Jessie Huish of Beehive Babies) is genious. I have a kiddopotamus swaddler & while it's pretty great also- I prefer Jessie's because it's not stretch fabric. With the stretch fabric he can still move around a ton - so he ends up waking himself up quite often. So while it may look like I'm sending my baby to the nut house- I still absolutely LOVE this swaddler- I can't believe this is the first time I've used one of these before. I don't know how I've ever lived without one!
