HOW TO: Swaddle
Becoming a parent for the first time is a life-altering, beautiful, emotional and downright terrifying time. One of the tasks of any new parent is to master the mystical art of swaddling or baby wrapping. For any new parent diapers, crying and screaming and breastfeeding can be a harrowing ordeal but from today onwards, you can become a pro and casually show-off your new set of skills to all your friends. So if your child doesn’t mystically jump into a magical yellow teacup looking extremely cute and kind of safe, then this guide to swaddling is for you.
Being wrapped up gives a baby a feeling of warmth and security and can help calm them down, recreating the environment of the mother’s womb as your child adjusts to their new life in the air-filled world. Swaddling as opposed to wrapping your baby in blankets reduces the risk of your baby overheating during their sleep.
