State, Doctor say no to swaddling (Part 2)

As I wrote yesterday, when I asked our pediatrician for a waiver to allow my baby to be swaddled at his state-licensed daycare, I was told that she wouldn’t sign because the American Academy of Pediatrics does not “recommend swaddling past 2 months.”

Dr Harvey Karp has weighed in on Twitter:

@abbyschachter …The AAP does NOT have such a policy…that was just the opinion of a couple of their docs…

Stayed tuned.
