A Miracle!

Hi friends!
Little P. turned 3 weeks yesterday! Awww. :)
She celebrated by waking up Monday night at 1:30 am and didn't calm, settle, or go back to sleep that night. Nor did she nap all day yesterday. By the time my husband got home I mentioned that I was considering stabbing myself in the eye. Not really, but I said it. I'd tried everything to soothe her and she calmed, but just would NOT sleep and every time I put her down she would SCREAM herself to tears (she's now making tears and it's so sad...big fat ones...so that makes it even worse) and she could barely breathe. She's much too young to be allowed to "cry it out" so I'd pick her right back up and try something else. THANK SWEET BABY JESUS that my 2 Miracle Blankets arrived in the mail by the end of the day yesterday. I promptly washed them and last night, Chris swaddled her in one to get her ready for bed. He said she fussed for about 5 minutes and then zonked out. Well my friends, she slept from about 10:00 or so until 3:30 in the morning. Holy Crap! Since I'd gone to bed at 7:00 it meant a ton of sleep for me. HEAVEN!!! I got her up to eat and then she slept another 2 hours. She snoozed this morning, but it was fitful. After most of this morning, she was starting to get tired and fussy and she hadn't napped yet. So, I wrapped her up and she is out cold again! She's completely still and asleep as I write this. I hate to jinx it, but this blanket has been a miracle already! Let's hope the trend continues. I'd heard about it before, but didn't really think much of it until Paige got into her fussy fits. Then, I saw THIS POST on Lyndsay's blog and was immediately sold! I rushed to the Miracle Blanket website and read all the testimonials and doctors' comments and decided to buy 2 of them right then and there. After a few torturous days of waiting, those blankets were my savior yesterday! Oh Miracle Blanket, you gave me a night of rest. You gave me time to myself today during her nap. You have a special place in my heart now! I can't recommend it enough and suggest that every new mother have at least one ready to go for when her baby fusses . It's like magic! You can get one here.
This video shows the blanket in action but it's not my movie. Sorry for the "sales" post. I swear I'm not getting paid for it. I just had to sing its praises while I'm in the throes of blissful wakefulness. I'll be back soon with some photo cuteness!

Thanks for the recommendation! Glad to hear that Paige is sleeping. We got some swaddling blankets from the baby shower, but if they don't work, I'll definitely give the miracle blanket a try!

Stephanie! Glad you got some swaddling blankets! We'd been using one too, but she works her arms up and out eventually. This one, she can't get out of, so it's much more secure. So, if your swaddle blankets give you any trouble down the line, remember the Miracle Blanket! :)

Yikes! I'm sorry to hear about the baby not sleeping! There have been so many nights that I've wanted to tear my hair out too - it's normal - and soon they'll smile and it'll be all worth it! :) We'll look into the Miracle Blanket too! Hope you & baby are well.

Oh, I hate those "real tears!" They make me want to cry, too. :(

Oh do I remember those days before we discovered the Miracle Blanket - agony! My nine week old is outgrowing his and I'm tempted to cut holes for his legs to stick through just so we can keep using it. He startles himself awake all the time without it. Mircle Blankets = best things EVER!

Hello, please pardon the intrusion. I’m Mike Gatten, inventor of Miracle Blanket. Your blog was brought to my attention because of your mention of the Miracle Blanket. I can’t thank you and others enough for helping us spread the word because people just don’t believe us when we tell them it might be “this easy.” That's why word-of-mouth has been the biggest source of growth for us since day one.

To show our gratitude I'd like to send you a free Miracle Blanket. If you don’t need it for yourself you might give it as a gift or maybe a giveaway on your blog.

Please contact Susan in Marketing and let her know what color you would like.

Susan@MiracleBlanket.com or (214) 675.0539.

And again, thank you very much.

Mike

I just found your blog and I'm expecting in early September. I already stocked up on a Miracle Blanket and I'm ready to swaddle based on my reading The Happiest Baby on the Block by Dr. Karp. He is a big believer in swaddling and I've had many friends recommend the book for dealing with fussy babies. Maybe it could help you with Little P?
