My mother in law just arrived with a swaddling for baby. It is the proper Gro bag swaddling. I was just under the impression wasn't safe anymore. I read about babies getting too hot and overheated and how it reduces movenenin legs/ hips?? Anyone else heard/read anything??
Not too sure of latest advice but my DS (now 7) loved being swaddled and settled him a treat. It was a very light shaped blanket and I made sure he didn't wear too many layers underneath. I think it's like everything these days y'know..:they have to explain risks and dangers to everyone to prevent daft people swaddling in 4 layers on hot days for 23 hours out of 24.
If your baby likes it then go with it. As I said not sure about restricting movement exactly but my son runs real fast
I did with DS and it was fab. I used a light swaddle as he was a summer baby. I found it helped him sleep longer as his jerky movements didn't wake him up like they would if he was in a normal blanket.
You should always keep an eye on their temp anyway no matter what blanket they're in.
It's very recent, my DD is also 9 months and I wasn't told the advice had changed. I've done it with all 3 and they're fine so I'll do it again if baby likes it. Just use common sense, not too restrictive and don't let them overheat.
With my first the midwives in the hospital swaddled him, (he is 5)and he loved it. With my second the midwives didn't (she is 3) but then she also came up in red blotches when too hot, she also hated it. This one will be lightly swaddled but only if they like it.
