Swaddling is an ancient tradition used in many cultures to calm babies and help them sleep. In many ways swaddling mimics the cozy comfort of the womb and inhibits a baby’s startle reflex which helps baby have uninterrupted sleep.
There are many books on swaddling, but we really liked the website Just the Facts Baby for a quick go-to guide on how to swaddle.
Have your swaddled your baby? How did your baby respond?
