The Education of New Parents: SwaddleMe aka life saver

This post is dedicated to Pedrito's Great Grandma and Grandpa Miles. Thanks for the cute book, A Baby's Guide to New Parents. We used the gift money to buy additional SwaddleMe wraps, AN ESSENTIAL FOR ANY NEW PARENTS, only slightly less important than diapers.
As new parents, Pedrito is giving us quite the hands-on learning type of education. The first week of his life we learned the SwaddleMe wrap is a new parent's best friend. The second week of his life we learned that swaddling a baby often requires four hands to get him in tight enough so he doesn't wiggle his way out, but without great communication, parents risk injuring each other. Daddy and I bumped heads trying to wrap this kid tightly.

I hope your heads get better...you'll have more bumps and bruises coming your way--don't you worry. Pedrito is so cute and aside from the head injury, I hope mom and dad are also doing well.
