Admittedly, I don't know much about babies. But I have read a couple books so far, such as 'The Happiest Baby on the Block', 'Bringing up Bebe' and 'Nursing mothers companion to Breastfeeding'. Some were very strong about the need to swaddle an infant up to 3-4 months during the night. I started to assume this was the norm and it sounded like the right way to go. Yesterday, I was registering at BRU with my sisters help (who is a RN in L&D and has extensive training in proper baby safety, etc and has 3 kids of her own) and she was appalled by the idea that I'd be swaddling. She said it is dangerous because they can wiggle and get the fabric up around their mouths and they are used to having the use of their hands in the womb and are calmed by being able to have them up around their face. I'm a little confused. I know I'll probably figure out what's right for us when the time comes, but do you all have opinions or strong feelings about this?
