You’ve heard the saying “Sleeps like a baby”, right? What does that even mean? Wakes up every 3 hours to eat?? Haha! Babies are all different in their sleep habits. Big Sis wanted covered, but not swaddled. She used the SleepSacks a lot! Little Man (as a baby) and Buddy both need to be swaddled. […]
