Paige has been sleeping much better lately and we think the "Snuggie" has been a big part of it. It's like swaddling with a blanket, but it's a specially designed blanket with velcro and stretchy material that makes it possible to swaddle the baby really well. Daddy thinks it's more like a straight jacket and was a little skeptical until he watched Mommy swaddle Paige with it. Paige absolutely loves the thing. Inevitably every time you start swaddling her with it she starts smiling.
Since using the Snuggie she's been sleeping 6-8 hours the first part of the night. Regardless of how much you feed her after that point she typically is awake again after 3 hours, but getting 6-8 continuous hours of sleep is pretty darn good. If you time things right with her feedings and get her fed and to bed between 9 to 10pm, she will often sleep until 5 or 6am. Pretty good stuff!

She's still so tiny in her bed!
