Hi! I was just wondering if a weighted swaddle suit was OK for a 3 week old to wear whilst sleeping? Baby loves being held and whist doing some research online we have found that weighted swaddle suits can give baby the effect of being held, therefore baby sleeps better. I was just wondering your opinion on the matter. Thanks in advance
Red Nose Education
Red Nose recommends that bedding for baby should be light weight, so extra layers can be added or removed when necessary, to help reduce the risk of overheating.
Heavy bedding can also make it more difficult for baby to roll. It is important for baby to have a sleep environment to allow baby to roll safely, not prevent baby rolling.
Maybe it would be helpful to chat with your Health Nuse/Midwife about some further settling techniques.
