Samuel seems to like the sleep sack. The downside is its a tad short. In the book, its marked “0-6 months”. The kid is just over 2 months old and the sack is too short. Luckily, its warm enough now that its no biggy, but I’ll make some longer ones for when the weather cools (and house does also).
With having colic, he does not like to be laid down (it is getting better, I think, but there is a ways to go). He has demonstrated that he doesn’t like the wrap as he thrashes and cries until he falls asleep. On a whim, I tried facing him outwards. Moby wrap instructions say not to do this until the child has good head control at about 4 or 5 months. Samuel’s head control isn’t too bad, so I gave it a try. The child seems to really enjoy it! (sorry about the flash in the mirror, Hubby is gone to school and this was how I figured to get a picture)
He can kick and wave his arms all he wants with little restriction. It gets a bit hot after a while (easy to do when the house is only a/c’d to 80′), but it seems a good deal for the time being. I’m gonna try vacuuming with him like this when he is up from his nap (in the swing… :P).
