Yep, wrap like a burrito! An essential baby item, swaddles have so many uses.
There are many benefits to swaddling a baby, including keeping them warm and comfortable and promoting a longer and safer sleep. By swaddling your baby, you stop their arms and legs from flailing, which reduces their startle reflex. The restriction of movement creates feelings of comfort, much like being inside the womb, allowing for a more peaceful and soothing sleep. Babies also need a level of restriction as it helps with muscular and sensory development.
When they are not being used to wrap up baby, swaddles are fantastic burp cloths, pram blankets, sun shades and general baby spill mop up clothes.
