All three of our kids loved a good swaddle and for Michael and I its always so sad when they no longer need it (usually around 4 or 5 months) because it means that whole little baby burrito stage is over.
I mean the swaddle isn’t a new concept, moms and nurses in the hospitals do it all the time and have for a long time. It makes perfect sense too, these little guys have been all nice and snuggled in our bellies, so now they’re out in the world and its so big and scary. The swaddle makes them feel safe and also helps keep their startle reflex down from waking them.
I thought it would be easiest to show you how we swaddle in a video. Let me know if you have any questions. I know the swaddle doesn’t work for every baby, but ours loved it.
