For the first few months of your baby’s life, he/she has no control over his/her leg and arm movements. This jerking motion wakens your baby with a startle and is very upsetting for them. They feel insecure and frightened. Very quickly they become anxious and gulping in mouthfuls of air may lead to colic. Of course, you know what happens next with an unsettled baby; the crying. Even after they are fed, burped and you have checked every orifice (an opening such as a nostril and anus) they’re not likely wanting to go back to their cot/crib because that is the place where they associate themselves with not feeling secure.
As you know, babies were use to feeling snug/warm and safe inside a mother’s womb; so why not give them that same sense of security by wrapping them in a SwaddleMe Organic Cotton Knit Swaddle Blanket which is sold on Amazon. The swaddle blankets are made from organic fibers and have not been chemically treated or colored with toxic dyes. Another good reason why you should swaddle your baby in comfort?
These swaddle blankets are a brilliant idea! Breast fed babies and bottle fed babies will benefit from being swaddled not only when they are sleeping but at feeding time because they feel cozy, content and can focus on the task at hand. Most babies tend to scratch their faces with their fingernails; so the SwaddleMe 100% Organic Cotton Swaddle Blanket, sold on eBay, will help. No longer will you need to put mittens on your baby’s hands.
Our Green House sells a 100% organic cotton swaddle baby blanket with a bamboo fold-down wrap corner. Hand-made in Canada, this swaddle blankets’ organic cotton fabric has an open weave which lets air to flow around your baby and prevents overheating.
Do you like to sew? Then why not try your hand at making your own swaddle blanket. Choose a natural 100% organic cotton/bamboo material and make it big enough to wrap your baby in it. Once your baby can control his/her movements then they may not like to be swaddled as much. However, the wrap can be used as a cover over your baby in the pram/stroller or as a security blanket when they reach toddler stage. Remember Linus in the cartoon “Peanuts”? I’m not embarrassed to say that I had my own security blanket when I was a toddler. I chose a 100% cotton nappy/diaper and wouldn’t go to bed without it.
