The swaddle wraps make them warm and they feel they are still in the womb. Due to this reason, the babies are not able to take the feed properly. According to different researches, it has been noted that those infants who got the touching experience during the first feed with their mothers are able to take their feeding properly. They touch and feel the skin of their moms. While the newborn babies who are unable to have a touch experience with their moms are not able to take their feed properly. So, the first touch matters a lot.

However, there has been seen no difference in feeding when the babies get older. The only difference has been seen at the beginning of feeding only. The second risk is that the baby swaddling may affect the healthy weight of the baby. When their complications come at the beginning of feeding, then the baby is not able to get a healthy weight. Proper feeding makes the baby healthy and if the baby does not take feed properly, he might not be able to get proper weight.

Hypothermia is also caused in the babies who are put in the baby swaddle wraps when they are born. It is the third main risk factor in swaddling. However, it is due by the swaddles which are too much warm and they over-heat the babies. The over-heating is the reason of hypothermia. So, if you want to use the baby swaddles then you must select the ones which are not too much warm and not too much cold. The newborn babies need only those types of swaddles which cannot over-heat them. Only in those swaddles, the baby will be able to take sound sleep and feel comfortable.
