Swaddling Infants

     Swaddling infants is a hot topic. We as pediatricians are often asked about swaddling. Many factors apply in my opinion of swaddling: comfort of the infant, safely of the infant, how it impacts SIDS risk, and how it impacts the sleep. I believe the American Academy of Pediatrics statement is the best advice on swaddling. On this link to an article at Healthy Children is an article about swaddling and good advice on swaddling.
