Harrison will be one month old on Saturday, and it has flown by! I’m excited to hopefully see some real smiles from this guy in the coming days.
He sure is a sweet, easy baby. I cannot complain. He’s either sleeping, eating, being held, or relaxing in his baby gym and looking at his toys.
My kids have all varied slightly in their infant sleeping habits. Carter was up every two hours to nurse, and I remember how tired I felt when I would wake up from a deep sleep to him crying. Luckily, he always went right back to sleep without a problem, and so did I! Vanessa slept six hours a night, right out of the gate, so she was my easiest.
Harrison has been kind of in-between, one night sleeping from 10:30pm to 6:30am (!) and other nights waking up two or three times to nurse.
I was contacted by the Nested Bean, who wanted to send Harrison one of their products, the Zen Swaddle, to try out. I almost declined because so much is going on, and because I haven’t had much luck with swaddlers in the past.
But boy am I glad I decided to give it a try! The Zen Swaddle is awesome! Moms-to-be, you need to add this to your registries, and I will tell you why.
The Zen Swaddle “combines the benefits of swaddling and the power of touch to provide a time-tested and truly safe, secure environment for your baby. Its lightly weighted parts apply gentle pressure on your baby’s sides and center to provide the comfort and security of being held.”
As soon as I got the package, we had to give it a try (which is why Harry is on the carpet)!
