A swaddle is something you wrap your baby with to keep them cozy, secure and warm. 🙂
They are said to prevent colic, reduce SIDS concerns, ease fussiness, prevent scratching their faces, and making it easier to breast feed!
I did swaddle Kyler… I had to watch a tutorial because I couldn’t get it quite right! I soon became a professional at swaddling and loved it!
I hear that not all babies like to be swaddled but give it a try!
I love these organic swaddles, my cousin sent me one it had an adorable print and was super soft! http://www.adenandanais.com/shop/swaddles.aspx.
The picture of him wearing the polka dot swaddle in the swing (looking like a stuck silly lump :)) is from Babies R Us.
The picture of him with the organic cow swaddle is being used as a blanket when he’s a couple months old.
A study published by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in May 2005 suggests that babies who are swaddled sleep better (have fewer spontaneous awakenings and fall back to sleep more quickly) and are more responsive to outside stimuli than babies who are not swaddled during sleep.
