Swaddling a baby is a great idea to make newborn quiet and sleep lying, especially in the first six months of baby. Baby wrapping does not affect the digestion and absorption of breast milk, and is conducive to the development of nerve muscles in premature infants.
When wrapping the baby, you should pay attention to let the baby’s legs can move freely, the chest can breathe freely, and ensure that the baby is not wearing too thick, do not cover the head, no fever.
If the baby sleep with adults, whether in bed or elsewhere, you must not wrap the baby. Sleep together is unsafe for baby, wrapped up to sleep together will be more unsafe.
When you find that the baby can already turn over, especially to sleep on his or her stomach, you don’t have to wrap the baby.
