Swaddling for a Colicky Baby

Baby nurse Luiza DeSouza shows a new mommy the best way to calm her infant with her special swaddling technique. She uses a "miracle" blanket that prevents the baby to keep his arms close to his body. You prevent him to use his arms by tucking this special swaddling blanket around the baby. When they don't move the arms and legs anymore, they calm down naturally. If you need the baby to calm down more and if they are colicky, you simply hold the baby close to your heart so he or she can hear your heart beat. If your infant continues to cry, you can use an up down movement or you can walk like a horse. You can lay him or her down when they sleep. But make sure not to swaddle your baby during playtime, because they need to have their legs and arms free to roam about naturally.
