Wrap me up like a Burritooooooo! How Swaddling lets your bub have the best sleep
Ma, Mom, Mummy—there is something about this word that gives us an instant sense of comfort. For most of us growing up in South Asian households, Ma’s saree or your mom’s muslin dress hem is our earliest memory of security, of knowing that we are going to be okay. Research says that this sense of safety, of belonging comes to the child right from the womb where, as the child grows conscious, he/she feels a sense of protection. As a baby comes into this world, it loses its shielding and safe cover—thus the crying out for the mom, the need to feel near to that source of love and strength. It is like being in a real life version of Life of Pi—the baby is in the middle of the ocean and it doesn’t even have a tiger to be friends with! So how do you make sure that your little munchkin doesn’t feel this way?
Swaddling is to babies what snuggling under the blankets after a really bad day is to new mothers—it makes your bub calm and also make him/her feel peaceful at night. Swaddling is not something new, it has been there since time immemorial—it was there when your ma wrapped you in her old muslin saree to keep you snuggled up beside her at night, it was there when your granny hummed lullabies while rocking you to sleep. What makes the modern swaddle blankets from Cot and Candy different are the way they ensure that your little one gets all the benefits of snuggling without any fuss.
