Kade Smith, 2 Months Old

In just five days, Kade Smith will be two months old! We know you all have been eager to see photos of him, and we will continue to share pictures as we are able. Here is a new one of the little guy snuggling with his teddy bear. How adorable is he with his squinty eyes?

  5. Can that baby breathe? He's wrapped to tightly. Not a good practice at this stage of the game. He needs to be able to move his legs.

    1. He’s going to sleep, a lot babies get swaddled before they go to sleep.

    2. He's fine. He's in his bed and looking pretty sleepy. Some young babies sleep better when they're swaddled.

  6. MO- Very cute- still looks his daddy. He's wrapped up a little too tightly for my liking... But then again, I'm claustrophobic! haha- If the baby is happy, then it's all good. :o)

    1. He’s in a baby swaddle, it’s not too tight. Maybe do some research on them.

  8. I don't understand why he's wrapped up so tightly?

    1. Some babies like the sensory feedback which helps them settle - my son did. Similar to restrictions of being in the womb, sense of security. As long as they're not swaddled all day too it's ok.

    2. Years ago swaddling your babies was the common thing to do, and babies were generally more contented than what they are these days with so little swaddling...

    3. Yep, some babies sleep better when they're swaddled.

  9. Some babies like to be swaddled but I do have the concern of the stuffed toy in bed with him. I only say this because he could roll over and possibly suffocate. I just don't want them to suffer a tragedy. Now if it's just for the picture then all is well.

    1. I thought the same thing at first, but given that Tori has spent a lot of time around babies and has her mom and sisters to ask questions to, it was probably just for the picture.

    2. It's really nobody's business what is in his crib. He has parents.

    3. Lots of children sleep with blankets and stuffed animals. Years ago we all did this
      Not a big deal.

    4. I have ten children, all grown. They all slept with stuffed animals at a young age and they all survived. Some people stress out too much.

    5. Can a swaddled baby roll over? I agree that the stuffed animal shouldn't be in bed when he's sleeping.

    6. There it is I knew someone would say something negative. He's fine and I'm sure his parents are keeping an eye on him

  10. at least his arms are free! swaddling the arms prevents their startle reflex, which yes wakes them but also helps prevent SIDS.
