Swaddling and Newborns
Swaddling and Newborns

Swaddling/wrapping a baby is something that has been around for years and years and most definitely has a place in the world of babies. In today’s day and age, swaddling is still very common, but in recent times there has been more debate on the issue and whether it is actually a positive or negative act. Generally, sleep experts, nurses and doctors agree that not only is swaddling quite safe, but it helps in comforting the baby especially in their transition from the womb into the world.

 Baby Sleep Swaddle

Why Swaddle?

The ideology of swaddling is comfort and helping a newborn feel safe and is if they are still tucked up in their mother’s womb. During the third trimester a baby resides in a cosy, dark, calming warm bath of fluid. Once the baby enters the world, they lose that sense of security and the warm, dark environment has been replaced by unfamiliar sounds and lights and a different sleeping environment.

Newborns are known for their ‘startle reflex’ when their limbs jerk which can wake them up and lead to crying and stress. A benefit of swaddling is calming a baby to promote sleep which is very important.  Between feeds and during sleep the baby feels safe and secure and as if they were still in the womb. When the baby is not asleep and seeking extra comfort, skin to skin contact is an excellent way to help relax and calm a baby.

Swaddling and Safety

When swaddling a baby it’s important to ensure there is a bit of room in the leg area so that the baby can move their legs somewhat. It’s also important not to cover the baby’s head as this can cause them to overheat. Swaddling the baby with their arms straight down is a common method used.

How Long to Swaddle

Whilst every baby is different, most parents will know when the right time is for their baby to stop being swaddled. As a general rule, when the baby can roll over is the time to stop swaddling as the rolling promotes a safety issue to the baby.

It’s important to note that swaddling will not work for every baby. The sleep consultants at Sleep Consulting by Sleepy Starz understand that every baby is different in its own unique way and there may be some babies where swaddling doesn’t work.

We do not push anything on parents as they know their baby best and need to feel comfortable. What we do is offer supportive and empowering advice to parents to work through their child’s sleeping issues.
