Swaddling, an age-old method of calming infants by wrapping them tightly in a cloth or blanket, helps reduce excessive crying in very young babies, according to new research. For babies up to 7 weeks old, swaddling was effective when used in combination with reducing stimulation and creating a regular routine of sleep, feeding, interaction and alone time. After 8 weeks, however, swaddling no longer worked, though the other interventions remained effective.
