So it is back to the days of up in the night looking after the newest member of the clan, Little B. After Little A’s nighttime antics meant I did not sleep a full night for the best part of a year I am determined to get Little B onto a better tack. Always keen to try new products this new swaddle suit instantly caught my eye. Little A loved to sleep with his arms up near his face (and his little sister seems no different) but the startle reflex was always an problem. The Love to Dream Sleep System is an all in one sleep suit that keeps newborns snug and secure and able to have their arms in the more natural position up by their face, rather than tucked across their body like the more traditional swaddle dictates. The easy zip in access is very Dad friendly as you don’t need to get to grips with lots of layers to wrap up and the two way zip means you can keep them cocooned whilst nappy changing. There is also a vent at the back so you can use it whilst transferring from cot to car seat without waking. Little B road tested her new Love to Swaddle Up last night and slept well…like a baby. She settled well either side of her feeds and I could keep her swaddled whilst breastfeeding. Pretty impressed so far and now we have success with the white version I think I might have to buy the pink too!
Amateur blogger and London mum to 'Little A' and 'Little B', I'll be sharing all the handy hints, tips and products discussed by all the mums at the playground. Giving you the lowdown on all the latest for the mini me in your life.
About ‘Little A’
Now in 'Reception' at his 'big school' Little A days are filled up learning how to read and write, wrestling with his pals and showing his little sister the ways of the world. A big fan of gardening, cooking and the Great Outdoors, Little A is certainly an adventurer and an explorer who is definitely still keeping his mummy on her toes.
About 'Little B'
Now an independent 2 and a half year old, Little B is flexing her vocab muscles and has us in fits of giggles with her newly found grasp of language. She is particularly adept at dodging the hairbrush and she still thinks Little A is the funniest person she knows. A lover of bunnies, cake and hide-and-seek.
