Swaddle Designs on The Doctors

Benefits of Swaddling
Medical studies have shown there are many benefits to swaddling.

Supine Swaddling Decreases the Risk of SIDS

  • swaddled back sleeping infants have a lower incidence of SIDS than unswaddled back sleeping infants
  • when babies sleep better on their back, parents are less likely to use the unsafe tummy position for sleep
  • swaddling helps sleeping infants remain on their backs

Swaddled Babies Sleep Better

  • swaddling decreases occurrence of the startle reflex which frequently wakes unswaddled babies
  • infants sleep with fewer awakenings when swaddled and have twice as much REM sleep
  • REM sleep is believed to be important for brain development
  • when babies sleep better and longer, parents get more sleep, too

Reduces Colic and Fussiness

  • snug swaddling soothes babies by reminding baby of the snugness of the womb
  • swaddling helps prevent overstimulation
  • babies are inefficient at regulating their temperature, swaddling helps keep baby warm

Helpful When Breastfeeding

  • tucking baby's hands into the swaddle will keep baby's hands from impairing latch-on
  • baby's extra movements are nicely contained when swaddled which can help baby focus and latch on
  • once baby has learned how to latch on and is nursing, remove the swaddle so baby and mom can be skin to skin and tummy to tummy
  • use the blanket to drape over mom and baby for warmth, skin to skin is best when learning how to breastfeed

Care Instructions

  • machine wash cold
  • tumble dry low

Testimonials

The blanket is really attractive, wonderful to touch and intuitive to use. The dimensions are perfect - all the corners and edges fell neatly into place as I was following the steps on the tip tag! -Marina, San Francisco

We purchased 2 of your blankets when we had twins almost 2 years ago. We bought them primarily to use for swaddling--little did we know how obsessed they would become with their "blankies"! Both of our twins, Ireland and Elias, have grown attached to their Swaddle Designs blankets, and *have* to sleep with them as their comforter. They both carry them around frequently throughout the day--our son Elias especially is seriously in love with his blankie. We sometimes call him "Linus" (from Peanuts) as he will walk around with it dragging behind him all day. In fact, if we try and put him down without it (and replace it with another blanket), he will scream as if you just put a snake in his crib. What's amazing is the blankets still look like new 2 years later. For the past 2 years they have been dragged, spit-up on (and thrown-up on...eww), chewed on, thrown, and more. They have been washed more times than we can count. Yet, they still look pristine and like new! Thank you for this great product that has become much more of our twins' lives than we would have imagined. -Mark & Danielle

A girlfriend bought this blanket for my baby shower because she had found out that Gwyneth Paltrow had bought one for her baby! I absolutely love this blanket, it is big, and it is nice that the directions on how to swaddle properly were on the label. Now that my son is 6 months old, we use the blanket for other uses, like tummy time and keeping warm outdoors! -Jennifer, mother of a wonderful 6 month old boy, Paso Robles, CA
