Swaddle Sleep Sack
Available from The Laughing Giraffe
Swaddling has a number of key benefits for both parents and babies – when done correctly and safely:
Swaddled babies experience less anxiety.
Swaddling eliminates the need for comfort items in baby’s crib – no pillows, bumpers, blankets, stuffed animals, etc. (using these items in crib have been linked to SIDS)
Swaddling prevent face-scratching.
Swaddling mimics touch, which is important for baby especially when they wake up at night.(again, when swaddled, they feel secure and safe just like they felt in the womb).
Swaddling helps maintain the back sleeping position and also reminds tired parents to place baby on back to sleep.
Swaddling in the hands-over-heart position is the preferred sleeping position for babies; in this position, they learn to self-soothe and can get back to sleep on their own.
Swaddling benefits parents too — when baby sleeps more, mom and dad sleep more!
