Norani Baby Snugababe Swaddle

Why Swaddling Is Important

It seems like as soon as you get pregnant or have a baby, you hear the term “swaddling” about 25 times a day. What is swaddling? Why is it so important? And how do you make sure you’re doing it right?

What is swaddling?

Swaddling is the form of wrapping a newborn baby (imagine them looking like a baby burrito) to help prevent startle reflex and remind them of the tight, cozy feel of being back in the womb. Swaddling a baby properly, and safely, can help them sleep longer and better. 

How does swaddling help prevent SIDS?

Swaddling makes it hard for babies to roll over, which is important because SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) risk jumps 8-45 times for babies who routinely back sleep but accidentally roll. Always make sure to place your baby on their back to sleep, and if they’re at the point in which they’re starting to roll over, it’s time to stop swaddling and consider a sleep sack instead. 

How do you pick the right swaddle?

There are a lot of different types of swaddles out there, and picking the one that works best for you can be a daunting process. One important factor to consider when choosing a swaddle is that the arms should be swaddled tight, but their legs and hips should be loose. The Norani Snugababe Swaddle™ allows you to swaddle your baby with their arms tight, thanks to the unique arm inserts, and the hips and legs to remain loose to avoid hip-dysplasia. Experts at Harvard University suggest that the baby's legs should be loose enough that they’re able to bend at the hip. 

Safety First! Here are some safety tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics: 

A few things to consider when it comes to your baby’s sleep routine: 

  • Back is Best
  • Never place any loose blankets or bedding in the crib
  • Avoid using bumpers or having stuffed animals in the crib
  • Your baby is safest in their crib, not in your bed.

Why is Swaddling So Important?

Swaddling is super important because it makes babies feel safe and cozy, just like they were in mommy's tummy. It helps them sleep better by preventing startle reflex and keeps them warm without overheating. Swaddling is like giving them a gentle hug that calms and comforts them. But remember, make sure to swaddle correctly, leaving room for their little legs and hips to move freely.
