Swaddling Risks & Solutions


New mothers face a whole host of challenges while discovering the joy and adversity in caring for a newborn. While we’d like to believe that instinct takes hold and leads the way for a first-time mom, often mothers second guess their methods with their bundle of joy.


Whether their baby is a fussy eater, a reluctant sleeper, or a colicky newborn, new moms experience a variety of situations that can cause some sleeplessness at the least along with a bit of angst. One unexpected struggle new moms face is that of swaddling.


Despite the longevity and cross-cultural ubiquity of swaddling, there are some risks associated with the practice. For starters, straightening and then swaddling a baby’s legs can cause hip dislocation or dysplasia.


And swaddling a baby too tightly can lead to overheating. There is even a risk of SIDS in babies that can roll over or in babies swaddled in a thick blanket. The risk factors associated with swaddling is enough for a new mother to never wrap a blanket around an infant again.
