Baby is a bit of Houdini and I am a rubbish swaddler. I need all the help I can get. I've found that the swaddle fabric is the most important part of a perfect swaddle, after the technique itself.
The key is to get baby really tightly wrapped - even if it feels like brutality to keep pulling on the fabric until baby shrinks to half his body size. The best swaddle fabric I've found is by Aden and Anais. It's a thin (perfect for summer) muslin and has stretch to it. Plus, they have really fun (but not Disney) prints.
They come in very handy to wipe up baby messes, and I've also used mine as a lightweight blanket when it's too warm for a onesie but baby is feeling shy.
They're priced at the high end, but I think they're worth every penny.
Since the birth of baby, I have lost interest in fashion-related things and replaced them with bottle-related ones. It's definitely cheaper, so far anyway.
Anything that claims to reduce air intake and "gas" issues is at the top of my list. I tried Avent, then the Playtex Ventaire and now this one has caught my eye. It's the Very Hungry bottle by Mimijumi.

7 weeks old already. Time has flown!
In a nod to El Gordito's Mexican heritage, here he is in his Lucha Libre t-shirt. I really want him in a mask but realize that might be a little over the top. Perhaps when he's a bit older :-), say next Tuesday?
