Congratulations on your new little bundle of joy. One thing that every parent needs to know when they have a newborn baby to care for is how to swaddle a baby. Newborn baby’s love to be swaddled. It makes them feel safe, secure, warm, and snuggly. Many new babies will fall fast to sleep as soon as mommy swaddles them in a warm cozy blanket. Another reason to swaddle a baby is if they are colicky. Swaddling a colicky baby will soothe the child and help him or her to calm down and eventually fall asleep.
