I try to wrap him with a blanket. He seems to sleep better for a while but usually he ends up moving around too much and is no longer covered or ends up with the blanket over his face.
I visited Cariboo Distribution website and found the Love to dream product line. There are 3 different stages: The Swaddling (0-4 months), The Swaddle Up (4-8 months) and Inventa sleep bag (4-36 months.) They are pros in baby's sleeping. From their research, babies can sleep better with arms up because it is a position that baby can self-soothe and will sleep longer. (I have noticed that Elias sleeps in this position too.)
Since Elias is passed 4 months old already, I was interested in trying the Swaddle up 50//50 with Love to layer ON.
The Swaddle up 50/50 works just like Swaddle up original. The special feature is there are an easy zip-off wings to help to transition baby from swaddling to sleeping with both arms free. Elias seems to sleep better in swaddle up position still but I like the option to zip off each wing when I feel that he is ready for that.
Love to Layer On Merino is my answer to keeping him warm during the night. Instead of having blanket on his face, Layer On Merino will keep him nice and ward and still in swaddle position. We love Merino wool and know warm it is. It is not thick and heavy but very warm. It will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Instead of wrapping him so thick with many blankets and clothes, just one layer on top of the Swaddle up is enough.
Thank you to Love to Dream for letting me try Swaddle Up and love to layer on Merino. If you would like to purchase your own, visit Cariboo Distribution.
