You love your baby and want what's best for her. There's one simple thing you can do every day to help your baby develop healthfully, and get amazing sleep at the same time.
As your baby starts to grow, they start twitching their arms and legs. Some of this naturally comes as they learn to use their body. But a lot of it is just involuntary. The problem is that they'll often wake themselves up when they unconsciously twitch while they sleep. In fact, some babies can only sleep for 20 minutes before twitching themselves awake. And in turn, the parents end up being awake more with their baby through the night.
Swaddling is a natural remedy for this frustrating problem. It can help your baby develop in a number of important ways. First, swaddling helps to soothe a fussy baby. The feeling of being swaddled is similar to the feeling and security of being in the womb, which can comfort the baby. It can also help improve neuromuscular development. And with arms and legs secured, your baby is less likely to wake themselves up while they sleep.
