2-in-1 Adjustable SleepSack® Swaddle: Safe Swaddling, Made Easy
The Benefits of Swaddling
After being tightly cuddled inside mom for nine months, it's no wonder that some babies enjoy being swaddled after birth. It makes them feel snug, warm and secure. Swaddling can help calm many fussy or crying babies and even help them sleep longer in the first few months of life. In fact, many cultures have been swaddling their infants for thousands of years. Basic benefits of swaddling:
Swaddling is a great way to soothe and calm a fussy baby by giving him a feeling of security, similar to being in the womb.
A newborn cannot regulate his temperature as well as an adult, so swaddling keeps his body warm. (Just make sure that he doesn’t become overheated.)
Swaddling often helps a baby sleep longer because it prevents the sudden movements (startle reflex) that can cause him to wake up.
Swaddling can help a baby focus on breastfeeding, helping to keep his arms and legs out of the way.
Swaddling prevents a newborn baby from scratching himself with his nails.
When Swaddling Your Baby Remember These Important Safety Tips:
Always place your baby to sleep on his or her back.
Besides the SleepSack Swaddle, DO NOT put any additional blankets, pillows or stuffed animals in the bed with your baby.
Swaddling should be discontinued when your baby shows signs of rolling over or breaking free from the swaddle wrap. When this occurs, transition your baby into a SleepSack wearable blanket.
Some babies prefer to be swaddled with their arms out. The HALO SleepSack Swaddle can be used either with baby’s arms in or out, depending on baby’s preference.
To reduce the risk of fabric accidentally covering baby's mouth or nose, swaddle wrap must be snug, appropriately sized, positioned around baby's torso and securely fastened.
