How [NOT] to Swaddle (Bundle) Your Baby

On the left is what you see when you look in the crib.  On the right is what you see on church stairs, and sometimes in Easter baskets.

After having nursed your baby, it’s usually a good idea to burp her and then bundle her so that she can sleep peacefully…and not bother you. Bundling, (as in “bundle of joy”) is sometimes referred to as swaddling. So the lesson of this article is how to swaddle your baby.

On the left is what you see when you look in the crib. On the right is what you see on church stairs, and sometimes in Easter baskets.

As you can see, the baby in the “GOOD” image is sleeping happily, while the baby in the “BAD” image is having fun breakdancing with her foot in the air, (I think that move is called the windmill, probably because it blows, but that’s okay because sooner or later the kid will learn to stand on her head and spin around while keeping a bottle in her mouth).

So basically:
1) If you want a lazy kid that sleeps all day, swaddle your baby like the kid on the left.
2) If you want a breakdancing baby, that could quite possibly be the next YouTube sensation and maybe even make you a fortune, swaddle your baby like the kid on the right.

…the choice is yours!
