This Is The Correct Way To Swaddle Your (Jewish) Baby
Meet Jenny Mollen.
Jenny Mollen is a (Jewish) actress, writer and comedian. She is married to Jason Biggs (not Jewish,) who played our very own Jim Levenstein in “American Pie.”
A little light reading for a future feminist. ( I will never forget how chilling It was to hear Michelle say, “I wake up every morning in a house built by slaves” Her courage, her class and her willingness to fight set her in a league of First Ladies all her own. If you are looking for a book to inspire you or just make It you look like you read, consider #courageiscontagious You won’t regret It!
They recently had their second child, Laszlo.
If they look picture perfect, it’s because they are. Mollen and Biggs are a good reminder that while parenting is hard, it should be done perfectly, as a single mistake could ruin your child’s life forever.
Luckily, Mollen is willing to share her secrets. This week, Mollen released a series of photos documenting her parenting skills. In a series of carefully composed iPhone self-portraits, she demonstrates the perfect way to swaddle a baby. You can use the arrows on the photograph to click through the gallery and enjoy a full lesson in expert swaddling.
And there you have it. The proper way to swaddle a baby.
Mollen’s unorthodox parenting tutorial comes from her equally gasp-inducing Instagram, where she chronicles struggles in parenting with shocking honesty and humor. It’s funny, it’s gross, it’s modern Jewish motherhood.
