Admittedly, they're a bit freaky, but I thought that if we had another baby, something like this might come in handy. Well, after struggling with a baby who wouldn't sleep for longer than 45 minutes at a time, I decided it was time to try to make some weighted hands...
Our little guy slept for 3 hours this morning, I'm sure partly thanks to this slightly creepy fuzzy arm! :) He doesn't look happy, but that's because he was just waking up. He doesn't like waking up.
I took one of my old sweaters that I wasn't going to wear again. It's nice and soft and probably smells a bit like me, so I thought that would be good.
Standard disclaimer: DON'T BE STUPID with these things. If you're using them with your baby, don't arrange them so that they could shift and suffocate your baby. Don't put too much weight on the baby's tummy or chest. Don't make them very hot or you could burn the baby. Use your common sense.
