There is no question that swaddling has countless benefits which are crucial for new babies. Swaddling not only creates comfort, and warmth, but it also encourages safe sleep. Swaddling has many neurological benefits as well, such as making your baby feel protected, calm, and secure.
One major complaint new parents have is that their babies are quickly able to break out of their swaddles. This is precisely the reason Swaddle Magic™ was created. Our innovative, escape-proof design ensures babies stay swaddled! Below are some of the key reasons for swaddling your little one with Swaddle Magic.™
SWADDLING MIMICS THE WOMB
Swaddling your baby in a cozy blanket reminds them of the comfort of the womb. The snug feeling they experience during swaddling is soothing for babies and makes them feel secure. This is especially relevant to newborns and throughout the first several months of a baby’s life. Swaddle Magic™ ensures your baby stays swaddled all night, eliminating any unnecessary wake ups.
SWADDLING REDUCES COLIC AND FUSSINESS
The calming feeling of being wrapped alleviates some of the pain and discomfort associated with colic. Psychologically it also helps babies feel safe, cozy, and secure which helps decrease fussiness. Swaddle Magic’s soft, yet not too thin material provides that cozy feeling babies need.
REGULATES BODY TEMPERATURE
A breathable, lightweight swaddle helps maintain your baby’s optimal body temperature, which in turn gives them restful sleep. Swaddling keeps babies warm and eliminates the need and risk of unnecessary blankets in the crib. Swaddle Magic’s premium, soft, cotton can be used on baby’s bare skin or when baby is lightly clothed in a onesie for optimal sleep conditions.
IMITATES A PARENT’S CALMING TOUCH
Swaddling imitates the loving and calming touch of a parent, which is known to reduce cortisol (stress) levels in your baby. Touch is an integral part of a baby’s development and the soothing nature of being swaddled imitates the tender touch and protection offered by parents. The result is a peaceful and rejuvenating night’s sleep for your baby as well as yourself.
SWADDLING REGULATES MORO (STARTLE) REFLEX & PREVENTS FACE SCRATCHING
You’ve probably experienced it yourself: a sudden awakening and tensing of the body as it feels like you’re free falling. This is known as Moro reflex, or startle reflex and it is extremely common in babies. While Moro reflex is a sign of health and normal development, it can also suddenly disrupt your baby’s sleep. Babies may awaken up to several times a night due to Moro reflex. Although swaddling does not prevent Moro reflex, it does mitigate the negative effects and comforts babies so they can get back to sleep on their own. Traditional swaddling blankets fail to keep babies wrapped as intended, thus doing nothing to prevent startle reflex or face scratching. With Swaddle Magic™ you can be confident your baby will stay comfortably wrapped all night long.
GREATLY REDUCES THE RISK OF SIDS (SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME)
The American Academy of Pediatrics lists the supine (back) sleep-position as one of the greatest factors in promoting safe sleep for infants. Swaddling, helps keep a baby in the supine position, thus greatly reducing the risk of SIDS. Babies who are free to roll around in the crib are at a much greater risk.
Swaddling is a time-tested, simple, and effective way to ensure the best, safest sleep possible for your little one. With Swaddle Magic,™ the most innovative and effective swaddling blanket available today, not only will parents have the peace of mind knowing you’re doing the best thing you can for your baby’s healthy sleep, but your own sleep will improve as a result.
