Charlie has a love/hate relationship with the swaddle. He will sometimes cry when getting swaddled, but can't sleep unless he is swaddled because he is such a squirmer! He rocks the startle reflex pretty well too. So until further notice, we will be swaddling Master Charles. Of course, being the independent young man that he is, every so often he likes to show me who's boss. Houdini strikes again!

Breakfast - two organic eggs with a slice of American cheese and ketchup on whole grain bread
Snack - fruit salad; chocolate chip cookie
Lunch - American cheese on a bagel with lettuce, tomato, and honey mustard; pickle; Thai chips
Snack - Greek pomagranate yogurt
Dinner - spinach and artichoke lasagna; garden salad with romaine, grape tomatoes, and cucumbers with light honey mustard dressing
Dessert - chocolate soymilk; piece of marble cake

My little one also has the same love/hate relationship. I have yet to find a swaddle that can keep her in!! As soon as she "breaks out" she wakes up. I've tried the Happiest Baby Dudu method of wrapping with a blanket, a SwaddleMe, and the Halo Sleepsack. My next try is either the Miracle Blanket or Woombie. Something has to keep her in! Let me know if you find a great swaddle!

Ha! I just ordered the Woombie last night and it should arrive early next week. I'll be sure to post about it. :)

The Halo Sleep Sack Swaddle works for our little guy; we just have to velcro it tightly. :) Charles is so cute!

In the meantime, search escape proof swaddle on Youtube, it has helped with our little Houdini!
