I wouldn’t say that Little M is a particularly good sleeper, but she’s not a particularly bad one either; she’s just a newborn, generally waking every two to three hours for a feed and sometimes going a bit longer (and sometimes at night, if we’re really lucky!). One thing we have found it that she sleeps better when she’s wrapped firmly in a blanket, so when I was asked to review the Maguari Miracle Blanket, I jumped at the chance!
The Maguari Miracle Blanket is a clever blanket that makes swaddling your baby really easy. It looks a bit confusing at first, but comes with super easy to follow instructions so that you can get the wrap just right. It only took me a couple of minutes to swaddle Little M in the Maguari Miracle Blanket for the first time, following the instructions as I went. I think you’ll agree that she looks pretty content:
I can imagine that Little M will sleep really well in this as she loves being wrapped up tightly. I just have two reservations; firstly she likes to have her arms up and self-settles using her hands at her face, so I’m not sure about her having her arms fixed by her side. The second issue I have this is:
Little M loves to sleep on her side and often has a habit of rolling that way when she sleeps. For obvious reasons the Maguari Miracle Blanket clearly states that it should only be used for back sleeping, not side or front sleeping. For this reason I would be worried about leaving Little M to sleep in it unattended.
However, I think the Maguari Miracle Blanket would be fabulous for calming Little M down when she’s in the throes of a developmental leap and needs to feel secure, and for any newborns who reliably sleep on their backs, the Maguari Miracle Blanket could be a great sleep solution.
