I was wary of swaddling at first because I felt like it was a little straight jacket punishment for your baby. After having a baby and watching him flail is limbs around when he was tired, I realized that the experts were right: swaddling is of great comfort to a baby and helps them to sleep.
Our baby is a little extra flail-y at times so I learned how to do a double swaddle. We do this at night and he’s been literally sleeping like a baby.
