Houdini or Gypsy Rose Lee?

11-1-09


Attempted escapes over the bed rails...


Removing all coverings to allow for easy escape...


Pinned down? No problem, pull till pin releases and arms are free...


Remove further restraint of nightgown, stripped down to the bare ...


Time for plan…..? Hmmm, don’t think I have a next plan.


We are using a new med to help settle her down, she gets anxious and moves around a lot, with in the confines of her bed and with the limitations of her body. It doesn’t appear to stop the middle of the night adventures she has though, since I gave her one last night around 9 and by 2am she had accomplished her tricks! She had been sound asleep when I went to bed too….


Husband came up with a better plan! He got me 4 small but very strong clamps with which I can secure the blankets down. If she can't pull off the covers, she can't get her upper body free to cause mischief! It works! I think is also has sort of a swaddling affect on her as well, like making a baby feel secure when they are swaddled, makes her feel more secure...'tucked in'.
