Dr. Gaurav Nigam, said,""These days, due to lots of responsibility and job, parents live in a nuclear family and have a lack of guidance from their grandparents, so this book will help them calm their baby and mother and baby both can have a better sleep."
The practice of Swaddling has been famous over centuries. It is beneficial for various reasons such as help in calming the baby, putting them to sleep easier and faster, and sleeping longer.

Swaddling is a traditional practice of wrapping a baby up gently in a light, breathable blanket to help them feel calm and sleep. They should only have their body wrapped and not their neck or head. The book has a step-by-step demonstration of how to swaddle an infant properly.
Dr. Gaurav Nigam also said that if Swaddling is not done correctly, it may increase the chance of hip dysplasia. Parents must choose the correct fabric for swaddling as Swaddling aims to make the baby feel safe, not warm.
