Swaddle for comfort

I didn’t know the importance of swaddling until I received this book ‘The Happiest Baby on the Block’ by Harvey Karp. In it, the author mentioned that 5S for calming crying babies and then I discovered the art of swaddling and its effect on babies. I should have read more widely before the delivery.


Of the swaddles that we have bought, I find Anais + Anais’ swaddling blanket the best. The material is soft and the size big so Faith won’t get out of the swaddle easily, if we do it well.

Infants at this stage need security and it is absolutely all right to keep them intact and close to you. In their fourth trimester, the infants will accustom well if we provide them with an environment that is likened to that of the womb.

Here are some notes on how to swaddle, for my sake. Memory is bad, nowadays. Extracted from the book.
