My son, as a newborn, wasn’t happy unless he was wrapped up tight. We called him Burrito Baby.

I could go for that right now.

I get tangled up in my bed sheets nightly, so I guess I’m already on board with this.

Prediction: Swaddling stations will end up in malls next to face threading booths.

I tried it. It didn’t relax me at all, what with all the struggling and fighting while I tried to wrap them up and all.

Try a different brand of plastic wrap next time. :wink:

ETA: This actually sounds kind of nice provided it’s not @Modusoperandi doing the binding.

Are you kidding? I had to fight off a panic attack just watching the video.

Did Dexter teach us nothing?

I only saw the last episode. Was he a chef before becoming a lumberjack or something?


#12

Not exactly a chef. More like a butcher . . .

Butchers don’t use plastic, they use paper! No wonder he had to give it up.

That’s cute but I’ll stick with bourbon as my stress reliever.


#15

Why not both?


#16

No comment.

Asphyxiation risk.


#18

Hmm. Didn’t I read about her in one of Oliver Sacks books?

I have no idea what was being done in that video. THIS is how you swaddle:

Probably, I don’t recall where I read what about anything anymore… :stuck_out_tongue:
