What’s wrong with this picture?

Craftzine has a great preview of Lotta Jansdotter’s new book, Simple Sewing for Baby. I love Lotta’s work and I’m looking forward to getting a copy of the book myself. But this picture in the preview had me chuckling.


Does anyone else see what’s wrong with this picture?

C’mon all you swaddling moms out there…you know what I’m talking about. It’s that adorable little hand sneaking out of the top of the swaddle! Of course, the wrap looks gorgeous and snuggly. But anyone who’s swaddled knows that a good swaddle is one in which the baby stays wrapped up tight – with no escaping bits. Sure, that’s not the point of the photo. But seeing as how we we struggled to find the right swaddle for our escape-artist daughter, I found that sneaky little hand amusing.

    My older son always managed to get a hand free so matter how carefully we bundled him up. He still sleeps that way 11 years later.

    oh, I know what you are talking about! I have twin daughters and it wasn’t too long ago where the sight of that adorable little hand poking out would frustrate me to no end.

    I’d guess it’s the purple stripey cat fleeing from the picture who is responsible for trussing up the baby in the first place. Probably hard to swaddle properly with no opposable thumbs. 🙂

    i am a little freaked out by how close that swaddled baby is to the side of the bed? is that a bed? it doesn’t look like a cot? like one little movement and the bub’s gonna topple right off
