How Long Do Babies Have To Be Swaddled?
How long does it take to hold a baby? All day?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically membedong baby is not an obligation and should not be done. However, membedong baby can indeed help babies (especially newborns) sleep more comfortably and longer because of the narrow sensation similar to when the baby is still in the womb. You can swaddle a baby since a newborn baby and start releasing swaddling when the baby starts at 2-3 months. Because it is used to help the baby feel more comfortable, swaddling is only recommended for use when the baby is about to put to sleep and released when the baby is awake. Swaddling a baby for too long (especially in older babies) can cause motor development problems in the baby.
You have to make sure you swaddle your baby in the right way. Make sure the swaddock is tight enough but not too narrow to interfere with the baby's breathing, make sure the swaddling is not easily released while the baby is sleeping, make sure you provide enough space for the baby's legs to keep bending like a frog's leg position. Do not tightly close the baby's legs and straight because it can cause pelvic dysplasia in the baby. When you hold a baby, make sure you position the baby in the supine position (lower back) so as not to occur SIDS (or sudden death syndrome in infants while sleeping). If you put a swaddling on the baby while sleeping, make sure the room temperature is cool enough for the baby so that the baby does not overheat and instead feel uncomfortable, or instead experience an increase in body temperature that is not normal (overheat).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
