To reduce the chance of injury. SIDS can happen if your baby is put to sleep on his back. This may be more important than just swimming.

There is an increased risk of SIDS and accidental suffocation when swaddled babies are placed on their stomachs to sleep, or if they roll over on their own. If you swaddle the baby, you need to watch it so that it doesn't roll over.

As soon as parents see signs of trying to roll over on their own, they should stop swimming with their child. Many babies start to roll over around 2 months of age. The risk of SIDS is not known if the arms are left out.

There are some risks in swinning the baby. It is more difficult for babies to wake up when they are swaddled.

The baby doesn't wake up easily and can be tempting for sleep-deprived parents. It is known that reduced ability to wake up can be a problem and may be one of the reasons babies die from SIDS.

Every time a baby is put to sleep, parents should follow safe sleep recommendations, whether it's for naps or at night.

Keeping Your Sleeping Baby Safe is an explanation of the policy.

Hip problems can be caused by babies being swaddled too tightly.

Studies have shown that wrapping a baby's legs together with a blanket can cause hip problems. Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip joint where the top of the femur bone does not fit into the hip bone.

SWaddling protects the hips and allows the baby's legs to bend and straightened.
