Baby Wrap

I meant 'swaddling': Swaddling is an age-old practice of wrapping infants snugly in swaddling cloths, blankets or similar cloth so that movement of the limbs is tightly restricted. Swaddling bands were often used to further restrict the infant. It was commonly believed that this was essential for the infants to get a proper posture. - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Swaddling involves wrapping the baby from shoulders to feet with a small blanket. Besides keeping baby warm and secured, just like mother's love. Swaddling can also help:
• soothe and calm a fussy baby
• prevent sudden movement that can cause baby to wake from sleep
• prevent newborn from scatching himself with nails
• baby to focus on breastfeeding by keeping his arms and legs out of the way
