Family Matters: Swaddling a Baby: Why?


For thousands and thousands of years, babies have been swaddled—you’ll read references in the Bible. This is when a blanket is wrapped snugly around the baby, holding the arms by his side.

Why swaddle? Many experts believe that swaddling helps a baby feel secure and warm—much like his pre-birth environment, which was a little tight and cramped. It may also mimic the feeling of being held in Mother’s arms, as well—that close warmth is comforting.

Something about it must work, or otherwise, mothers for centuries wouldn’t have carried on this tradition. If your baby gets fussy, give swaddling a try!
