I loved wrapping. It worked for us and we did it fully until they started to roll then we slowly introduced them to safe sleeping bags. It is not for everybody but I believe this is one of the reasons I was able to teach self settling so early on. You must remember to always take advice from an expert when swaddling to ensure that you are following “safe sleeping guidelines”.
Lately I have been thinking about how often I hear that babies don’t like being wrapped or that they get out of them, so I thought I would search for something on you tube about swaddling babies. We also firmly believed that the only reason someone got an arm out was because the parent had performed a “bad wrap”. There was much competition and hilarity between us.
This morning I asked the Workaholic if he could remember how to wrap. The answer, “no, probably not”. So if he happens to pick up this post he might like to have a look at the Royal Hospital for Children Melbourne recommendation video just to refresh his memory too!
Have a lovely restful Sunday.
