As many new parents quickly learn, swaddling is a common practice that’s been around for years. Although some parents joke that swaddling newborns makes them look more like a burrito than a baby, pediatricians and other experts agree that swaddling your newborn offers many benefits, most of which help your baby (and you) sleep better at night.


Swaddling Soothes Your Baby

Even after your baby enters the world, he still needs time to transition to life outside of the womb. During your baby’s fourth trimester, swaddling can help recreate that feeling of warmth and coziness that your baby enjoyed in your womb.

Also, a comforting touch regulates your baby’s temperature, breathing, and heart rate. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to hold your baby during every moment of the day, but swaddling can help mimic a mother’s touch and similarly soothe your baby. In fact, swaddled babies settle more easily and sleep better because they feel comfortable and safe.


Swaddling Prevents Your Baby From Waking

During the first several months of your baby’s life, his Moro reflex can cause him to wake up during the night. Although your child’s startle reflex is a healthy neurological response, the involuntary movements can cause your baby to wake and lose out on a lot of sleep. Luckily, swaddling helps prevent these movements — which means everyone sleeps better.

Many babies also experience colic during the early stages of life. Because swaddling applies light pressure all over your baby’s body though, it can help alleviate the digestive complications that cause colic.

Swaddling Keeps Your Baby Safe

As parents, we always want to protect our babies and keep them safe. When done effectively, swaddling can do just that — it can keep your baby safe and sound while he sleeps.

Swaddling helps prevent your baby from rolling over and helps him stay in a supine position (sleeping on his back). This can help prevent SIDs, which can save your baby’s life.


Selecting The Right Swaddle Blanket

When comparing swaddling blankets for your baby, you want to look for something lightweight and breathable to help regulate your baby’s body temperature so he doesn’t overheat during the night.

Luckily for you, our organic swaddle blankets are made from the perfect blend of 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton, making them breathable and thermo-regulating all year round. They also come in numerous adorable designs that you and your baby will love!
