For centuries, Swaddling was practiced across cultures, and this ancient practice is now making a comeback all around the world. Think about it – when the nurse hands you a newborn baby right after birth, he or she has already been swaddled (irrespective of the pretty clothes you may have bought in anticipation. Today even paediatricians are recommending swaddling for a variety of reasons.
The biggest advantages of swaddling are -
- Promotes better, deeper sleep
- Recreates the safe, warm feeling of the mother's womb keeping a baby calm
- Helps deal with a newborn baby's "startle reflex"
- Reduces the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
