Keep a Heavier Blanket to Hand – Even in summer
Monday, August 10, 2015

My baby lent well to swaddling though she would still wiggle her legs and body a lot and wake herself up. Babies enjoy a small amount of pressure against their body, hence they settle when you carry them as they see it to be similar to when they were in the mother’s stomach in a smaller space. If your baby is sleeping in summer months you won’t always need a blanket or if you do then a light one. However we always had a heavier blanket accessible as at the times she stirred we placed the thicker blanket on top of her legs and the extra weight of it calmed her down and soon enough she fell asleep.
