Sleepless in South Dakota
Mr. Boy has always needed to be swaddled to go to sleep, but now he is strong enough to got out of the swaddle very quickly in his sleep and proceed to wiggle. (Observe video #1) Wiggling is all fine and dandy unless you have a tube taped to your face that really needs to stay there, and little hands that like to grab and pull things amidst the wiggling. After many sleepless nights (on my end), of running back and forth between my bed and Mr. Boy's room to untangle him from his tube which was around his neck (and he doesn't even roll yet!) or kinked behind his back or wrapped around his arms and then having to wait endless hours to make positively sure he was fast alseep... because awake wiggling is much worse than sleeping wiggling, I made the decision to make a brilliant purchase. Elbow restraints! (Observe video #2) Now I can leave him at night with the comfort of knowing he can not pull out his tube!
