A lot of babies love to be swaddled. And, yes, there are some that kick and scream when you try to confine them in anyway. However, there are some great benefits when you swaddle.
Swaddling helps newborn babies transition from womb to world. Basically this means that the swaddle of the blanket around the baby supports a sense of tightness similar to what inside the mothers womb would offer.
Reduces SIDS – When you swaddle your baby, it can make it difficult for the baby to move its arms and rustle the bedding. It also makes it harder for babies to roll over onto their tummies.
Calms Babies – Being swaddled can give the baby a sense of security and help calm
Stay Warm – babies get cold especially those first few days after birth so swaddling can provide much needed warmth
Controls Startle Reflex – Swaddling your baby helps with uncontrollable arm reflexes which cause babies to startle themselves and therefore increases longer sleep times
These are just some of the benefits of swaddling. There are many great products out there that you can purchase for your baby but few that have fabulous, trustworthy materials and adorable qualities all in one. SwaddleDesigns is a company that makes these wonderful swaddle blankets for your little one. They are all manufactured in the USA and Eco-Friendly. The blankets are made using many domestic fibers, sustainable fibers, recycled fibers and recycled packaging. They even offer a certified organic collection. They feature fabulous colors and prints, and their innovative 123 Swaddle® pictorial instructional label sewn to the edge of their Swaddling blankets which makes learning how to swaddle so easy.
SwaddleDesigns was created by Lynette Damir, RN, CEO in 2002. After seeing the struggles of new Moms swaddling babies and knowing the benefits swaddling offered, she created the company. SwaddleDesigns products are known for their great quality and long lasting value that moms and babies love and enjoy for years. SwaddleDesigns is also well respected by the medical community. They are often recommended by pediatricians, nurses, doulas and newborn care instructors.
