“But there is a wrong way to swaddle. The wrong kind of wrapping can affect a baby’s hip development and increase risk for developmental dysplasia of the hip, a relatively common problem that, if not caught early, can lead to premature joint problems and chronic pain in adulthood.” - a quote from a recent New York Times article, written by Tara Parker-Pope, about the benefits of proper swaddling of infants versus the potential for harm of incorrect swaddling.
Swaddling is a way of wrapping babies to promote comfort and calm. Recently I was catching up on past seasons of LOST and one of the characters swaddled Clair’s baby, Aaron.
Oh and if you’re wondering why a post about how to wrap your baby up correctly is relevant to a blog about sex and relationships, may I point out that most babies come about as a result of S-E-X? As such, the occasional baby post will do.
