I asked a friend of mine, Adam D., how his first couple months have gone with his second child. He responded by highlighting the art of swaddling. He said that, knock on wood, his second turn rearing an infant has been a lot better as far as sleep goes because of consistent swaddling.
With their first child they kind of gave up on it because it didn’t seem like the baby liked it. But this time around they have been more consistent and stuck with it and the results have provided more ease through the nighttime hours.
