Adventures with Alex - Swaddling a 3 month old

Well, Alex is my little baby and by baby I mean spoiled baby.  Lyssa had grown out of the swaddling stage by about a month, however I'm learning how different two children can really be.  Lil Man still has to either be in someone's arms or has to be swaddled.  The only problem with the swaddling is the fact that he is 3 months old and a little big for most blankets.  I would say 98% of blankets sold are 30 inches x 30 inches.  I have searched far and wide for a larger blanket with no luck.

Then one day I was at Target for something else and decided to look.  Yep, just as I thought all blankets were 30 x 30.  I gave up and turned to walk away and something on the bottom shelf caught my eye.  It was a picture of a baby and said SWADDLE.... I had to look closer...
Aden and Anais for Target ® Vroomaroo Swaddle Wraps 4pk - Blue $29.99
These blankets are very soft and they are 40" by 40" and get softer with every wash.  I would have to say the best $30 I've spent other than the Boppy that he's sleeping in, yet another thing he won't sleep without... but neither would Lyssa, she slept with her Boppy until she was about 10 months old.
