Lasted about 20 min until he spit up all over it! Gah! Wish I had more than one miracle blanket.
When our miracle blanket was dirty, I would use two different blankets to swaddle Kate - thin material. I would lay them both out right on top of each other like I was going to swaddle her like normal. I would take the one on top (closest to Kate) and put it around her arms and under her body like the MB. SO her arms would be pinned down and then I'd swaddle her like normal with the other blanket.
It worked ) Well, it worked like the MB, but nothing like that worked with kate, lol.
I have lots of swaddle blanket things that we do not even use...so if I have not given them away, I'll bring them...but wait....James is a giant dinosaur...not sure they will work for him!! LOL.
We use a normal blanket and just swaddle the heck out of her!
Hopefully your 2nd try will go better!
Those kiddopotomus ones are great and so easy; effortless IMO. Maybe see if someone has one you can borrow so you'll know if it works with him. Otherwise, they're only like $10 so it's not too big of an investment. Just get GN so you can use it with your next child.?
That's how I make myself feel better with all the crap I've bought for Elise. If she doesn't dig it, hopefully our next one will!?
