Swaddling gives a very cosy feeling to a newborn baby. The baby feels as if it is still in the mother's womb.
Swaddling is a part of caring for newborn babies since centuries. This makes the babies feel as if they are in the womb. It is one of the best techniques to calm a cranky baby and help them sleep for long. It can be particularly helpful for babies with neurological problems (problems associated with nerves, like migraine, stroke etc.) or colic (abdominal pain during infancy). It also can really help babies to fall and stay asleep on their backs.
Consider these points when you are swaddling your baby:
Sleep talking is common among children. It is not as serious as sleep walking habit and it can be resolved easily.
It is better to not assume otherwise about your child's sleep before understanding about the ideal sleep hours.
Choose sleepwear in a way that the baby sleeps hassle free and wakes up with a smile.
By following proper measures, the habit of sleeping late can be improved upon.
Urinating in bed can be avoided by not giving fluids before bed but sometimes it has underlying psychological reasons as well.
Nightmares/unpleasant (bad) dreams are common among preschoolers as this is the age when they start understanding about normal fears and their imagination is highly active.
Sleep walking is common in kids; Most kids outgrow it by they reach their teens.
