This Crochet Swaddling Blanket Bag for Babies Project is such a beautiful expression of love (gift) for the new mother in your life.
We all love a good hug, cuddle and snuggle. We have all loved it from the day we were born. Even now as adults, there is no greater pleasure than sliding into a nice warm, comfortable, and snug bed.
For newborn babies, being cuddled and swaddled is vital to their wellbeing as it helps keep them warm until their natural internal thermostat kicks in. Swaddling a baby also stops them from being distressed when their startle reflex hits.
Swaddling for preemie babies is just as important. Swaddling helps calm a developing baby and insulates a baby who does not have enough body fat to keep them warm or regulate their temperature.
