At night, after she has been changed and ready for bed. we put a little Tshirt on her then wrap her snugly in a cotton jersey type swaddle blanket, with her arms against her body. ( In short, a recycled bed sheet). We have a product called "The Miracle Blanket" (themiracleblanket.com) but we like the sheet better. ( quicker wrapping ).
Maya gets a bit cranky at night and and hard to soothe, so we swaddle her up. Sometimes she settles and starts yawning right away. Sometimes it takes a little more soothing, and usually the answer to that is feeding her.
This REALLY helps relax her and she sleeps very well with me. The swaddling keeps her arms still and snug, as though being back in the womb.
Note: She is only swaddled at night to sleep. She sleeps with me undisturbed, then we unwrap her in the morning. and she smiles up at me and stretches her little arms! it is so cute.
I'm curious to see if it has worked for others.
I included a photo of Mayasol all decked out in her swaddle.
