Swaddling 101

December 12, 2011

As a veteran maternity nurse and mom of three, I’m a huge advocate for swaddling (there’s a reason hospital nurseries across the country have mastered this skill!) Babies love the feeling of being securely swaddled, and new parents–once they get the hang of the technique–love what a calming affect it has on their babies. Even if you feel your baby doesn’t like to be swaddled or he/she cries the first few times you try it out, check out this how-to swaddle a baby video and keep working at it! It’s highly likely that once your baby feels that cozy, secure sensation of a properly wrapped blanket, sleeping and soothing will get a whole lot easier!

    Swaddling was one of the few things that helped my colicky daughter!

    Thanks for your comment–love hearing swaddling success stories!! 🙂 It definitely tends to help little ones who are colicky, which is one of the reasons I can’t recommend it enough!
