Did/do you swaddle your baby?

I never did with my first, but I decided to try it with this one for the first time last night (he's 3 weeks). I felt so bad like I was putting him in a tiny straight jacket! but then he slept really well in his own bed... so i think i may be doing it again tonight....

oh, and a question--if you do swaddle... how do you put their hands? by their sides? across their chest?

We did for the first week he always got out of it and didn't like it. We put his arms by his side I think.

 so you alternate on different days based on who puts baby to bed? does baby seem to sleep better one way or the other?

 :) I felt so bad for him, all grunting and squirming, trying to get out. But once I got him settled, he slept!

where did you put their arms?

We did with my youngest for awhile.  She seemed to like it.  We put her hands by her sides.

We swaddled Keira until she started rolling. We loved it and so did she so we'll be doing it again with this one.
