What is Swaddling?

Swaddling is a way of wrapping a thin blanket around your baby to simulate their familiar environment - the womb.

It is calming for young babies and can help soothe fussy little ones, while helping to promote sleep.

Swaddling also...

  • Helps babies to learn to self-soothe because it simulates being held.
  • Prevents infants from scratching their face
  • Helps to alleviate colic
  • Helps to regulate their temperature
  • Protects them from their natural Moro reflex (startle reflex) that may cause anxiety or disturb them when they are sleeping peacefully.
