Why Swaddle Your Baby?
Many experts suggest that swaddling in the first several months eases babies through the shock of suddenly being out of the womb by duplicating many of the sensations of the womb. Many babies do not handle this transition well, and some recent research suggests that this may be the main cause of fussiness.
Swaddling seems so confining. Is it good for a baby's development?
This question is the main reason western cultures all but abandoned the practice of swaddling over the past 100 (or so) years. Think about how comfortable the baby was when she was in the womb - total darkness, almost silent, snug fit ... very little input. Suddenly they are thrust into a world of light where their little arms and legs flail and flinch without control. Their little razor-sharp nails scratch their little face and their heavy head lolls without support. Giving your baby a few more months of some of the snug, supporting, and warm sensations of the womb should not be seen as an insensitive act - but a loving one.
Most babies squirm quite a bit when swaddled, especially at first. This does not mean they don't like it. The fact is, very young babies don't have very much - if any - muscle control and their arms and legs flail without them being able to control them. Swaddling actually helps limit this movement so the baby can relax and calm down. If your baby continues to squirm, and doesn't calm down after 5-10 minutes, take him out of the blanket and give him a few minutes to rest and try it again. Eventually, your baby will relax at the mere sight of a swaddling blanket.
