All newborn babies are different. Some like to feel snug, warm and secure and others like a little more freedom. For those that like the security at this early stage of development, swaddling is a great way to comfort a baby whilst keeping their startle (Moro) reflexes contained.
Containing the sudden movements (or startle reflex) by using a Swaddle may help a baby to sleep for longer. Many parents also find their baby will settle more easily when securely wrapped.
Swaddling can also benefit a baby in other ways:
• help a baby focus on breastfeeding by keeping his arms and legs out of the way.
• prevent a newborn baby from scratching himself with his nails.
• keeping baby’s body warm in the early stages when his ability to regulate his body temperature is still developing.
• learning to swaddle using a traditional wrap can be daunting and babies often wriggle free.
