People.com Celebrity Parents Why I bought my.... Amazing Miracle Blanket By Staff Author Published on January 30, 2008 08:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email I’ve mentioned before that I am swaddling-challenged. When my son Ben was an infant two years ago, my husband and I had such a hard time getting the swaddling right (we were following Dr. Harvey Karp‘s Happiest Baby on the Block‘s techniques). The blanket would always end up coming untucked and my baby would let me know his displeasure. We ended up sleeping less and less and got crankier and crankier. My husband’s friend had sent us two of the Amazing Miracle Blankets as a new baby gift — and we quickly fell in love with them. Finally we could get the swaddling done quickly, even in the middle of the night. We quickly bought several more and rotated them so we always had a clean one on hand. He slept better and a was very calm baby. We swaddled Ben until he was about 4 months old (and still wish we could go back to the days that a securely wrapped blanket would help my boy sleep). Pictured up on the top left is a happily swaddled sleeping Ben and his daddy. I love this product so much that I often buy it as a new baby gift. Enter second child Allegra (who at press time is 3 weeks). While I love the muslin swaddle blankets that I’ve tested — at night, every night, she’s in the cotton Amazing Miracle Blanket, swaddled happily. I can wrap her up easily in my sleepy exhausted state. The Amazing Miracle Blanket is 100% cotton and has two inside flaps to secure the arms. There is also a longer flap to cross over both arms and a long flap to wind around the baby to secure them. On their website, miracleblanket.com, you can watch a video to figure out how to use the blanket. I only wish there was a way to keep it closed, you have to tuck it in somewhere and sometimes its hard to find a place.
