Have you tried a woombie? We have always tried the sleep sack. We got one from a friend, two from the hospital, and one for our baby shower. Why do you need to learn how to swaddle any more? I like the idea of the woombie because then you don't need to worry about the arms. This goes along with the 5 s's from Happiest Baby on the Block. A book we got from a friend and it worked wonders on us first time parents. We also saw the happiest baby on the block dvd at our parenting class at our local hospital. So now we have a 10 month old baby and neither of us know how to swaddle.
