Swaddling is an old-aged universal practice of wrapping babies in blankets to keep them from excessive crying and has been used since 4000 BC. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, swaddling has possible benefits, like waking up less and sleeping longer. Swaddled preemie babies have improved neuro-muscular development, motor organization, self-regulatory ability, and less distress. Swaddling makes a baby feel snug, warm and secure, like in their mother's womb, and it can make infants cry less and help soothe their pain. Also, some babies startle themselves awake because of loud noise or movement, and this will likely less happen when they are swaddled.
Swaddling can help warm your baby and regulate their temperature, but parents should be cautious as it can also cause hyperthermia (an increase in body temperature.) It is important to use light, breathable swaddle blankets that will not cause overheating. Moms and dads should also be aware of the correct swaddling and positioning to avoid developing hip dysplasia (problem with the hip joint). There should be enough room for movement of their baby's legs and natural growth of the hip joints.
The practice of swaddling is low risk for babies as long as safe sleeping and swaddling guidelines are followed. Let your baby sleep in the supine position, not on their sides nor prone, as this can increase the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Parents should also stop swaddling when their babies show signs of rolling over. It is also essential to properly wrap and ensure the swaddle blanket is securely tucked, as a loose blanket can be a safety hazard. You may also read: How to swaddle your newborn to know more.
