The risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) is also reduced when swaddling the baby. Furthermore, infants stay in REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep longer when swaddled. So, a properly wrapped blanket keeps babies from sleeping less and less, allowing them to stay in a deeper more calm sleep. This will allow the infants to stay in a peaceful rest until they need feeding or changing.The quality of any baby blanket being used is vitally important in both your own and in newborn gift sets. The type of fabric chosen for the 'outside' baby blanket makes a huge difference with the extra washing. Plain cotton is probably the most durable and long lasting, but other types may be used as well. Jersey knit (t-shirt material) are great for night-time swaddling because it stretches a bit and helps the infant stay snug as a bug while sleeping. Satin framed baby blankets may be better suited for naps or play because some babies love the slick feeling of the satin. Velour lined blankets are soft and cuddly, extra warm for that precious newborn or for the colder winter months.
