What Are the Benefits of Swaddling a Newborn?

Getting to know your baby comes with a learning curve, but that’s just the balancing act called parenting. Between the lack of sleep and long nights there’s always the magical (and sometimes rare) quiet moments you get to enjoy cuddling your newborn — and that’s what makes it all worth it.

No matter where you’re at on the learning curve, taking care of your little one will always be your top priority and ours at BreathableBaby. Learn about the benefits to swaddling your newborn to help them (and you) get longer and safer sleep.

How to Tell if a Baby Is Swaddled Too Tightly & More Swaddling Basics

The most basic way to tell if a baby is swaddled too tightly is to place two fingers between the baby’s chest and the swaddle. If there is just enough room to fit two fingers of space between their chest and the swaddle then the baby is swaddled correctly — not too tight, not too loose.

Learning how to tell if a baby is swaddled too tightly is one of the many things you’ll pick up right out of the gate when it comes to taking care of your newborn.

Catch up on a few more swaddling basics and get answers to questions before you become a parent to your new little one.

5 Tips to Get Baby to Sleep Through the Night from Baby Sleep Expert Dr. Sarah Mitchell

Congratulations! You’ve made it through the first few months of little sleep, early morning feedings, and late-night cuddles with your adorable newborn. Now it’s almost time to get baby to sleep through the night — a big transition for every parent, and one that’s different for every family.

We collaborated with baby sleep coach Dr. Sarah Mitchell to provide you with the best tips to prepare your loved one for this gentle transition. Dr. Mitchell began working as a sleep coach in 2013 with the goal of educating parents on age-appropriate sleep needs and safety tips.

As a mom herself, Dr. Mitchell understands that being a parent is a labor of love and passion. What started her dive into baby sleep coaching was her own son’s trouble falling and staying asleep, as he would wake up every two hours for months. Dr. Mitchell took her healthcare background and grew her academic knowledge on child sleep to help many babies (and parents!) get a full night’s sleep.
