Burrito Baby

Our Eloise seems to be a bit of an escape artist. No matter how tight the burrito bundle, she manages to first release an arm, then another, and then her legs. Even one of the nurses tried a different bundle technique (one she said she had never seen a baby wiggle out of), and Ella was out in 30 seconds flat, much to the nurse's surprise.

Not but 5 minutes after posting this picture, she escaped again...but not before she was covered in kiss marks.

We always had to safety pin the swaddle closed with Claire. We swaddled her for sleep until about seven months old. I was an expert by then, I wish I could come give it a try :)

Hmmm, I think a challenged has been issued ... Claire vs. The Swaddle :).

Have you tried the swaddle blanket yet? Bethany loved hers and maybe the velcro would give her more of a fight?

Looks like you have a little wiggle worm on your hands! :) I love her expression in this picture! I think she has her daddy wrapped around her finger already! :)

Those eye lashes are fabulous! She has some killer eyes! I bet you are loving looking into them! Can't wait to meet her!
