Good luck! Let me know how you go! Perhaps our babies can be completely 'swaddle free' by next month?! I hope so!
Oh and left-handedness.... They dont really have a preference until they are 2yo. It isn't genetic either. A lot of the time they just copy what they see.
DS is left handed for most things, but feeds himself and draws/paints with his right hand.
Neither me or his father is left handed. My parents nor his fathers parents are left handed either.
We were wrapping bub in one of these swaddleme wraps: http://shop.bigpond.com/Product.asp?...tail&ID=167948 and he was getting out of it a couple of time a night, we would go in and rewrap. At 3 months I just stopped wrapping during the day, the first 2 days was awful as he would wake himself within 20 min of going to sleep but I just persisted and by day 3 he was fine sleeping without a wrap, I continued wrapping at night for another month or so but just with a big piece of fabric, then went to a sleeping bag, the same as day sleeps. The biggest thing for me was having confidence he could sleep without it, I had a girlfriend who had just been through the same thing on speeddial those first three days.
Haha! DH said DS was gonna be a brick layer, cos he's so "tough"
I'll keep you posted!
