Swaddle bathing: an improved experience for preterm infants
Swaddle bathing for preterm infants was introduced in a level three neonatal unit in Scotland. The effects on the babies’ temperatures and stress levels were assessed. Staff and parents provided feedback/testimonials on their experiences with swaddle bathing. This initiative is no longer exclusive to preterm neonates; any neonate that is deemed medically stable can be given a swaddle bath.
