Swaddle Fail

My boy needs to be swaddled when he sleeps, otherwise flailing arms and legs keep the entire household awake.  When properly swaddled, peaceful, sleeping baby can be achieved.

There are times, however, when pre-flailing prevents an optimum swaddle, even given today's advanced swaddle technology.  On these occasions, peaceful sleeping baby lasts only so long.  Replaced by this...

Arms usually come free by morning.  I can accept that.  But this is after only an hour.  Don't ask me how the leg got out.

Is that the same theory as a straight jacket? As I recall, we had no swaddle technology when I raised my kids. Whatever hung out, hung out. Which accounted for a lot of wet sheets in the AM.

He looks so little in this crib.

I am wondering if the title of your blog should reflect your new status. My turbulent journey from pilot to author via Fatherhood.
