Miracle Blanket, the makers of the #1 pediatrician recommended swaddling blanket, offered me a few blankets to review their stylish and practical blankets. I jumped on board because Mr. Man hasn’t been so easy to put to sleep…
Bryson is now 11 weeks old and quite the “restless” sleeper. At about 2 weeks old, he was super fidgety. I stopped swaddling him to see if that would let him dose off to sleep easier…well I’ve been rocking him in his Rock N Play now every night. While I love the cuddle time with him, sometimes it’s not an option, with TT starving for my undivided attention. After all, she needs her momma to hold her to fall asleep too.
So, we’ve gotten into the routine of putting TT to bed between 8:30-9:30 with Mommy holding her, and once she’s down in bed, I head into my room to feed and rock Brysonboy. I know my kids are only little for a short while, but after spending the past 24 hours with them, it’s nice to have some time to myself…ya know to take a shower?!? I’m still dreaming of the day I can paint my nails!

Anyhow, the first night of using the Miracle Blanket was nothing short of a miracle! Bryson fell asleep in my arms after his feeding at 9:30. I laid him in his Rock n Play (safer for him now with his reflex issues) and he didn’t wake to eat until 2:30 am. He’s a breastfeeding baby, so I expected him to wake at his usual time of 12:30-1 am. I welcomed the extra 1 1/2 of sleep. He then slept like a baby until he was ready to wake for the day at 6:30.
Night two: baby slept…..well, like a baby!
Night Three: My little man is loving his new nightly routine of getting a bath, being snuggled in his Miracle Blanket and nursing with Momma. He’s been fast asleep for these three nights with no trouble at all!
Not having to rock Mr. Man asleep every night has allowed me extra cuddle time with my TTgirl and I welcome that so much! I often feel guilty that I’m unable to spend nighttime snuggled up with the tiny girl, but, she does love her brother, and I often find her holding his hand and shushing him to sleep!
The one difference between the Miracle Blanket and other Swaddlers is the fact that there is NO velcro. I would often find my child’s face scratched by the velcro and stop using them for that very reason. Another plus to the Miracle Blanket is the fact that ANYONE can figure out how to swaddle their baby! You simply place the baby in, feet first, on a flat surface. Then fold over the shorter side and then the longer side.
With prices starting at $29.99, a Miracle Blanket would make a great gift for any new baby that you are welcoming into your life, and his/her Momma will Thank You too! The fabric is super soft, breathable, and holds up well with several washes! Over these past two weeks of using the Miracle Blanket, it’s been washed at least 6 times…I told ya we are dealing with Acid Reflux here, people!
Now…if only they made a larger Miracle Blanket, we would be in there…until then!
