Our Experience Foregoing the Swaddle

 A lot of Montessori parents avoid swaddling their newborns in the name of allowing freedom of movement.

This idea makes me incredibly nervous but I have been trying it and it hasn’t been too bad. I do use white noise liberally however, and that does work wonders. I see Howie calm immediately when I put it on.

I also feel like he doesn’t startle as easily as Clark did. I kept Clark swaddled even when he wasn’t sleeping.

I also want to get one of those Nested Bean Zen sacks and try it out because Howie is getting more restless as he is no longer a sleepy newborn.
