I wrap my 4-week-old with her hands out as she manages to get them out anyway to self soothe. I position her arms across her chest inside the wrap with elbows bent so that hands are free. Is this a safe position? Twice I have found my baby has rolled onto her side while sleeping. Is it safe to continue wrapping?
Hi, I am 33 weeks pregnant with my first child & have been reading about wrapping versus safe sleeping bags versus swaddle bags. I understand many newborns sleep longer & better if their arm movement is restricted, but that swaddle bags don't allow parents to observe when the startle reflex has disappeared. Is this correct? Even if a swaddle bag has studs to allow arm hole closure? Also, is it recommended when using a safe sleeping bag for a newborn that arms are kept inside, i.e. not put through the arm holes before the startle reflex disappears? Thank you!
