Who else sucks at swaddling?

The other swaddle question got me thinking.
Do any other moms just suck at swaddling? I can't do it lol, her daddy has to do it everynight before bed. He tries teaching me but I cannot for the life of me do it tight enough.

  • I sucked at swaddling until I realized it wasn't me that sucked...it was the blanket that I was using that sucked! The best swaddling blankets are thermal. They stretch and you can get them in there really good. I used to call my son my "Little Burrito Man" cause he was wrapped up so good like a little burrito. Thermal all the way. I'm telling you....you will no longer say that you suck at swadding!

  • I thought I was the only one! I never was good at it and my husband was perfect at it (in fact, he taught a couple of new moms on our block).

  • omg! LOL I totally sucked at swaddling at first, it was a bunchy and loose. My DH had to it for like the first 3 weeks. I got the miracle blanket though, and that's alot easier, it comes with a diagram! haha. just keep practicing, you'll get the hang of it! I did, and if I can do it so can u...go mommy ! ;)
