Tight wrapping means safety and imitation of belly comfort NOT limitation
I always thought that tight wrapping is something what will limit my baby to move and certainly it will limit his further development, but I was so wrong. If I saw my son endlessly crying already in the hospital and you are constantly thinking that he should be a happy baby because he was fed and his nappy was changed……… then you will keep asking: “Small crying face, what more do you want, what are you missing my love?”
In the early age, specially after being born, a baby is still confused by being born and is coping with that so much space which is rather now more and obstacle than an advantage. There was nearly any space in the belly before and the baby felt comfortable. I can prove that because my son was born through C-cut, since he really did not want to be born and go out of the belly. So the imitation of tightness of this internal space will remind your baby the safety and comfort which he was used to before.
We even did experience with Carlos that if we did not tight Edie properly he started to be scared by his own hands since he does not know how to manage his body yet. He was moving his hands, touching his face and scratching it. Sometimes he woke up because of his unexpected fast move of his body and specially his hands been near his head.
But believe me he is learning fast and sooner or later, I bet in one more week, he will improve that much that he will be able to be untight and my inceptive feeling of making him uncomfortable will disappeare.
