The Amazing Miracle Blanket
From the Manufacturer:
The World's Most Pediatrician-Recommended Swaddler: The Miracle Blanket is a new, innovative swaddling blanket designed to ease your baby's fussiness and help her sleep longer and better. The blanket uses no buttons, straps, Velcro, snaps, zippers or other confusing adjustments. And one size fits all!
This blanket can also help stop colic, prevent facial scratches and can make breastfeeding much easier.
I ordered this blanket and gave it a try. The following is an account of my personal experience with the blanket.
I was looking for anything that might help my son sleep longer during the day. He would only sleep for 10 minutes at a time. Something would always seem to wake him up.
When I got the blanket in the mail, I tried it out right away. I wrapped him up according to the directions. The directions cautioned that my baby might not like being wrapped up at first. And they were right - he pitched a fit! But I just rocked him back and forth and in less than 5 minutes, he was sound asleep! Without a pacifier!
I thought, well getting him to sleep - that wasn't always the problem. The test would be to see if he would stay asleep when I put him down. So I took him over to the bassinette and put him on his back. He barely flittered his eyes and went right back to sleep. Again - on his BACK!
I looked at my watch and thought, well the blanket passed the "putting him down" test, now let's see if it really helps him sleep longer. I watched as the minutes ticked away. I kept going back and checking on him - I was afraid I had wrapped him too tight! But he was just fine - sound asleep!
That first time, my son ended up sleeping a whole 30 minutes on his back while swaddled in the Amazing Miracle Blanket! I know to some parents that doesn't sound like a lot, but those of you who have babies with colic or reflux know that 30 minutes is a lifetime with an infant who won't sleep. I was able to walk away for 30 whole minutes! I went to the bathroom, I got a snack, I put in a load of clothes - all without any screaming!
I have found out since then that I didn't even have him wrapped as tightly as I could have, so I've gotten better with practice.
I think the beauty of this blanket is the design. It has a special design that keeps your baby's arms tucked by its side. How many times has your baby woken itself up with flailing arms? The blanket also keeps your baby from kicking through the swaddle with its feet. We had what we called a "super-swaddle" we would do with my first son with a regular blanket. We would have that blanket wrapped as tight as we could get it, but he would always break out of it. My second son was even stronger and not once was I able to swaddle him successfully. I even had my grandmother sew bigger blankets thinking that would help - but he "broke through" every time. This blanket proves that bigger is not necessary - just better design.
I tried the blanket again and even a few days later, he was still getting 30 minutes of naptime while swaddled in the blanket. I'm hoping he will continue to get used to the blanket and sleep even longer!
I wish I had known about this blanket earlier. Not even just for the naps, but for breastfeeding as well. I remember half of he struggle of breastfeeding was keeping my son's hands out of the way!
