Back when the lady was a squishy newborn I had a nice little routine for her around bedtime. After she'd been up for about an hour or so, or if I saw her starting to grizzle or get wriggly, I'd give her a cuddle, tell her 'it's sleepy time' and carry her up to her room. I'd draw the blind, check her nappy, change it if necessary and put her in her sleeping bag.
Then I'd kiss her, lay her in her hammock and pat her if she needed it, sometimes for up to an hour, (also from around 2-4 months she used a dummy to drift off) and then I'd leave her to her nap.
I have never been good at swaddling so I rotated two or three Love To Swaddle UP sleeping bags (the Lite ones as it was summer time) -- they were perfect. The tiny lady could still move her hands to her mouth but was snug enough so her startle reflex didn't wake her up (or not so that I noticed), and I never had to worry about loose bedding covering her face.
Today I'm excited to be giving away not one but two Love To Swaddle UP sleeping bags and wash bags, thanks to Love To Dream. Yay!
