Swaddling has been around for centuries and although practises have changed over the years as we learn about things like hip dysplasia and breathable fabrics it’s still comforting for newborns. Make sure you use a light breathable material, having a swaddle that you can just zip up or Velcro together is easier in those sleep deprived few months! Use a swaddle sleeping bed for naps and night times. This will help your baby feel secure and will stop the ‘moro’ or startle reflex which will wake them up as they drop into sleep.
