As I type this Katie is taking a nap for the first time unswaddled and she has been asleep for 20 minutes. I am hoping this might be a step in the right direction to weaning her off of the swaddle. However, at night we will still be swaddling because I am pretty sure that it helps her sleep longer. We received our Miracle Blanket (MB) on Thursday and I love it! We have had 3 good nights of sleep thanks to our little baby straight jacket. The first night she slept until 1:00, ate quickly and slept until 6:15 when I had to go wake her up. The other two nights haven't been quite that good but still a lot better than before we had the MB. I can't wait until the night I get 7 hours of sleep in a row!
Welcome to Team Garner, the blog about our family just living life in Bellingham, Washington. We became first time parents when our wonderful daughter, Katie was born on her due date of January 6, 2009. We chose the name Katie in memory of my mom who passed away in 1998. Our second little peanut, Carly Rose was born June 30. Parenthood is an adventure and this is a place for our friends and family to stay in touch with the Garner family happenings.
