Benefits of Swaddling Your Baby

When babies are very young, they are used to being confined in the womb and love to be cuddled. It makes sense that your baby might at times benefit from a more supportive approach, such as swaddling, to help him/her to settle down, either to go off to sleep or just to rest and relax. Below are some of the benefits of swaddling:

  • Help to calm baby by giving womb-like environment
  • Help baby return to sleep after experience moro startle reflex
  • Help baby to stay warm, especially for the early baby life when they cannot adjust their body temperature properly
  • Prevent scratching by baby’s nails
  • Help make breastfeeding easier

Studies Report on The Benefits of Swaddling

“Infants sleep with fewer awakenings when swaddled, and swaddling may help sleeping infants remain on their backs, say researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.”

Washington University School of Medicine
St. Louis, December 2, 2002

“Now we have scientific evidence to support the age old belief that swaddled infants sleep better than unswaddled infants,” Gerard said. “It helps babies stay asleep and so may help parents keep babies sleeping in the safer back position.”

Claudia M. Gerard, MD
Washington University School of Medicine

“Epidemiologic studies suggest that swaddled and supine (back) sleeping infants have a significantly lower risk for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death) than unswaddled supine sleeping infants.”

Pediatrics December 2002

“Efficient wrapping is magically soothing to most babies. Wrapping too loose may have the opposite effect. Your aim is to encase the baby completely so that her limbs are gently held in their preferred position and so that, when she moves, she moves as one complete bundle.”

Penelope Leach – Your Baby and Child

“If your baby startles easily, his chin quivers a lot, and his arms and legs seem trembly, swaddle your newborn in a blanket, which contains and helps to organize these jerky muscle movements.”

William Sears, MD- The Baby Book

“The frequency of startles was decreased with swaddling during QS (Quiet Sleep) and REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, and the frequency of behavioral arousals was decreased with swaddling during QS sleep. The duration of REM sleep almost doubled with swaddling.”

Washington University School of Medicine
St. Louis, December 2002

“The long term effect of longer REM sleep duration in swaddled infants is unclear but may be beneficial. It has been suggested that REM sleep directs early brain maturation through control of neural activity.”

Pediatrics December 2002

“New babies need twice as much REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep as adults. That kind of sleep is thought to play a crucial part in brain development.”

Penelope Leach – Your Baby and Child

“Swaddling is the cornerstone of calming” and “It’s time for swaddling to make a comeback.”

Harvey Karp, MD – The Happiest Baby On the Block

“Swaddling is soothing to baby because it simulates the feeling of being in the womb. She feels warm, secure and comforted,” explained Laura Alexander, a maternal-child health nurse and parent educator at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.”
