Duct Tape is Not an Effective Swaddle
June 11, 2006 | by Rachel
Last week we had several really hot days. Being that Win tends to be a hot baby his standard double layered swaddle, which keeps him nice and snug through the entire nap, was too hot for him. We have learned by experience that swaddling him in a single layer simply doesn't last more than a couple of minutes. In an attempt to keep him cool during one of his naps we experimented by "reinforcing" one layer. As you can see in the top photo, Win was game. About 20 minutes into his nap I heard yelling from his crib. I discovered Win angrily kicking unbound legs. He simply doesn't sleep without being swaddled. Needless to say, we swaddled him with two layers and turned on the air conditioning.
