Swaddling and Beyond With Lulujo Baby

Swaddling and Beyond With Lulujo Baby

SHOP(4)

For 40 weeks (give or take) you carry your child. Until they are ready to come out you EAT, SLEEP and BREATHE that baby.

Those last few weeks you are big (I was huge), my son had dropped and I could not physically sit down because of the pain it caused, and I literally felt like there was just no more space for him to grow.

Thankfully he agreed and evacuated just before I made my pajamas pants a permanent wardrobe staple but he was not ready to come out and stretch out.

He still feels most comfortable in the fetal position, and after all that time I don’t blame him.  I like to keep his hands closely bundled to his body so that he doesn’t scratch his paper thin skin. I don’t care how good it is for their brain development for them to be putting their hands in their mouths right now. When I find scratches on my newborns face it hurts my heart.

Luckily we have been blessed with some gifts from Lulujo Baby that are keeping not only Cyrus safe and warm but the rest of our family is benefiting as well.

After Cyrus was born last week (you can read our home birth story here) and my husband and I got some quality skin-to-skin time with our little man it was only right to put him back into a position he felt most comfortable in and so we rolled  him up with his Blue Chevron Bamboo Muslin swaddle and he proceeded to take a nap so that I could go put the rest of the kids to sleep.

I know that doctors tell you to wake up your child every 2 hours to feed when they are first born but I will tell you that is never going to happen over at my house. 4 kids in and I have never had to wake my child up, they always awaken when they are hungry. But I do find that they nap for a wee bit longer when they are properly swaddled and as a mom of 3 other kids who also need my attention, every minute counts.

I am enjoying both the Bamboo and Cotton Muslin swaddles currently. To be honest I can’t really tell a difference between the textures because they both feel extremely soft and the material is thin and breathable. When I am feeding my son I use the swaddles as a nursing cover over the ones I originally had because they seem to offer way better air flow to my babe and the two thin layers provide more than enough discretion. I honestly think people are jealous of the Prehistoric Pals swaddle I have because they are always looking or maybe they just think it’s odd that I wear a dinosaur scarf at 30 years old 😉

Alas, it is not just Cyrus and me that enjoy these beauties as 18 month old Aria has decided to all of a sudden need a blanket as well. I think she is just wanting to do the same things as her new baby and who am I to say no.

First Bath

We have also been using the Turkish Towel for our little brood. These extra large (100cmx150cm) cotton gems are going to get a lot of use in our home. From Cyrus’ first bath, using it as a blanket when it is cold out, or the older kids using it as a towel at the gym we have this all under control. My favourite part is that is so light and dries super quick.

I am a new believer in the power of the swaddle and think that Lulujo should be in every moms arsenal of baby goodies. Why wouldn’t you want a product like the swaddle that has so many uses-swaddle, nursing cover, travel sheet, burp cloth, security blanket, super hero cape, scarf?

All swaddled up and nowhere to go...

I am so excited to announce that I am now a Lulujo Brand Enthusiast. I will be sharing my love of all things Lulujo with you and maybe a little something more as well 🙂

Have you ever swaddled your kids? I am new to the game even though I have been doing this parenting thing for a while and I am loving the extra sleep:)

    The Kids were born at 30 weeks and they loved their swaddle for several months. It’s really interesting how it’s so innate. Cyrus and the rest of your family is beautiful. Off to read his birth story. How you have time to write it, I don’t know. I’m still writing The Kids and they’re five years old…

    Besos Sarah.
