Then a friend gave us some Swaddle Me swaddlers that use Velcro to strap babies down. Yay! It worked brilliantly. Such a life-saver. But here's the recent development: Gregory has figured out how to--I kid you not--get the swaddlers off. He doesn't break through the Velcro, but he'll slowly inch the swaddler off his shoulders and down his arms until he's free. For example, the other morning, at 4 a.m., I heard some smacking coming from his room. I went to investigate and found him sucking on his hands with his swaddler all scrunched up around his middle.
But hey, at least it doesn't cover his face when he breaks free, so I'm still happy.
