Swaddle & Snuggle your cute little one
Wrapping the baby in a swaddle is one of the oldest and easiest ways of calming an infant as it mimics the warmth of a womb, making the transition from the womb to the outside world easier on the little ones. And not just for the baby! Snuggling a little bundle of joy who is comfortably wrapped up in a swaddle is a very calming and relaxing experience for a parent too.
Let us understand the benefits of using a Swaddle wrap on babies
Babies are born with the Moro reflex, also known as the startle reflex. It is a neurological response that causes a newborn to feel as though they are free falling. Babies experience this all the time during the first 3 to 6 months of their life. While it is very normal and in fact, is a sign of a healthy baby, this reflex can disturb a baby's sleep quite often. If you swaddle the baby, it helps prevent those spontaneous movements and considerably reduces the effect of the Moro reflex, allowing for a much more relaxed & uninterrupted sleep for your precious little one.
Recent studies have found that infants are quieter, sleep longer, and have lower and more stable heart rates when swaddled. When you swaddle a baby, it also helps in regulating the body temperature, helps give relief in colic, and reduces SIDS risk as it keeps the babies in the supine position.
All in all, it is safe to say that a baby in swaddle is a happy baby. Our ancestors were wiser, of course! So swaddling has been quite an essential part of new born care for generations in our culture.
The earliest memory we all have of seeing a newborn must most probably be of a little sleepy smiling face peeking through a swaddled bundle.
How to swaddle a baby
What’s the best choice of swaddle for baby
Old cotton sarees of moms and grand moms in the family were always kept aside to be cut into squares and used as a swaddle, towels, wraps, and whatnot for the next baby that would arrive.
With the passing of time, and our societal fabric changing, the way we dress also changed. As an after-effect, many of us lost out on those soft, broken-in, cotton sarees to swaddle our babies in.
But what if we said it is still possible to swaddle your babies in softest, gentlest, Mulmul cloth, with an added bonus of them looking just like our grandma's sarees.
Yes, SuperBottoms has introduced beautiful 100% Cotton Mulmul swaddles, which are extremely soft, square pieces of cloth, available in beautiful traditional Indian prints and earthy colours, just as loving as grandma's snuggles.
Not just that, because these swaddles don’t come in any pre-stitched shapes, it makes them rather versatile and can be used as wraps, blankets, towels, nursing cover, stroller cover, and much more, as the baby grows.
So it’s time to try out the revolutionary 100% Cotton Mulmul Swaddle from SuperBottoms, because the snuggle is real!
