So if babies sleep well when swaddled (generally), would this work for an adult?? Firmly wrapped, lying on their back with no pillow?
I just checked on my gorgeous 5.5mo DS, soundly sleeping in his LTD swaddle and it got me thinking... I briefly considered asking DH to swaddle me in a bed sheet to see if it helped me get some sleep but when I posed the above question he looked at me like I was losing my mind. His response was "no. Babies like it because they like uteruses and stuff. Adults don't like being in a uterus". Lol.

Interesting concept but I wouldn't like not having control of my arms. It would be like being in a straight jacket perhaps?

Yep I am with your hubby on this one.

I quite like a bed firmly tucked in around me but would hate not having the ability to move around at all.

Hubby has restless leg syndrome, so maybe it would be perfect for him!
He doesn't seem keen though...strangely enough!!

Even the thought makes me feel claustrophobic! I don't know how babies tolerate it, I know they are used to being in a tight space and they feel secure but I always felt bad swaddling Dd Lol.

No way I couldnt do it, too claustrophobic.

I'd probably be cozy, then immediately itchy in random spots all over my body & go crazy like I do every time my arms get pinned down or I'm not supposed to move!

I am with your husband! I think it would be terribly uncomfortable.
I also think wrapping babies is odd. I haven't wrapped either of my babies.
