Benefits of Swaddling
Experts including Dr. Laura Jana, Dr. Bradley Thach, Dr. Sears recommend swaddling for sleep time. In 2002, Dr. Bradley Thach led a study that proved that swaddled back sleeping babies sleep better than unswaddled babies.
Supine swaddling helps to reduce risk of SIDS because swaddling helps babies sleep better on their back, therefore parents are less likely to use unsafe tummy position for sleep.
Doctors, nurses, childbirth educators, doulas, parents, and medical experts recommend SwaddleDesigns blankets because they are large, square, lightweight and breathable. Cotton is a natural and breathable fabric which reduces the risk of overheating. Medical studies have shown there are many benefits to swaddling.
