Why Swaddle?

With the arrival of our third child I am back into the world of swaddling. Swaddling is really just wrapping your baby tight in a blanket to provide comfort and a feeling closer to the womb. Why swaddle you ask? It often helps to calm and comfort a baby; which for us sleep deprived parents equates to better and longer sleep. There are different ways to swaddle a baby. I can't say that one way is better than another. The real trick is to try the different types of swaddling and see which your baby finds to be the most comforting. I will be posting different ways to swaddle your baby with pictures to show a couple different ways I have swaddled my children.
