Swaddling With a Baby Muslin Swaddle
Swaddling is a wrapping technique that has been used for centuries to snugly and securely wrap a newborn baby. It has numerous advantages including helping the newborn infant feel safe and secure while dozing off, meaning they cry less, settle, and sleep better.
Why Use a Baby Swaddle
A 2007 study by the Journal of Pediatrics into the benefits of swaddling found that one of the most important is reducing the risk of SIDS. It lessens the chances of the child flipping onto its front or pulling bedding over its face whilst asleep, two of what are believed to be the primary causes of SIDS. Important - once an infant can flip over onto their stomach when they’re swaddled it’s time to stop swaddling.
Newborn babies also have a habit of making random arm movements during sleep, which can startle them into waking up. A baby swaddle restricts this so the baby sleeps better and for longer. It’s also been found that keeping their arms still helps with the development of organized motor skills.
Premature babies in particular benefit the most from swaddling.
Muslin Cotton Swaddles Are Best
The best baby swaddles are lightweight muslin cotton swaddles, as these reduce the risk of overheating, they’re incredibly soft, and they last a lifetime. It’s likely your baby won’t require other bedding whilst wearing a swaddle, even with the most delicate and lightweight muslin swaddle.
