Escape from Babytraz


This is where I found our young lad this morning when I went in to get him. You'll note the sleep positioner and crib pad perpendicular to him and half the length of the crib away - that's where he was placed after his dream feed at 10pm last night. You'll also note the hyperbolically named 'miracl.e blanket' scrunched between his legs. As this is the second time this week I've found him out of his swaddle and his appointed sleeping place (though the last time was less dramatic), I think we can safely say adjustments are needed. I've put on the Breath.able Bump.ers to keep his limbs inside the crib, and I've ordered some sleepsacks for when the swaddle just doesn't cut it at all anymore. Our little man is mobile, though I'm not exactly sure how he got himself to where he ended up.
The baby nurse is gone, but we have the college students starting mid-week. I go back to work for real in a couple of weeks, so I'll be easing in between now and then. I'm still breastfeeding, if you can believe it, but work will put a crimp in this since I don't plan to pump there. I expect to be totally done in the next month. In mid-September, I'll be going to a family reunion sans husband and baby, so I suppose I'd better be done by then.

He's adorable! Too bad you can't videotape to see the process it takes to get there! My little guy still stays in his wedges but he's a baby houdini when it comes to getting out of his swaddle - he's been doing that since the hospital. But of course he only sleeps really well when he's swaddled, go figure. Anyway, good luck with the bumper and keeping you little guy in one place! :-)

I cracked up when I saw the photo and read your description. We also had a houdini that would manage to end up in the most unreal positions, angles and places. Even to this day when he gets up in the morning, his bed looks like a small tornado went through during the night..even the sheets are off the bed and he is sleeping on the mattress. I pitty his poor wife someday.

What a talented boy! He's so cute too.

I would comment with something relevant to what you wrote, but I've been overcome by the cuteness of your houdini!

He really is a cutie! And, obviously, highly intelligent, too.

We had a brief, frustrating phase when Elsa would flip over onto her stomach and get "stuck" with her head up against the side of the crib and she'd cry and we'd have to keep coming in and "rescuing" her. Thankfully, she's over that now.
