His reaction to unswaddling is absolutely charming, no wonder his videos have already gone viral!

As it turns out, Kaden is a baby who has a strong “startle reflex”. This somehow gets in the way of his sleeping which makes him cranky and restless during the night. His parents have observed this and found that swaddling ould help in making sure that the child sleeps well.

“Swaddling makes him feel safe and secure and helps him sleep,” Kent explained.

Swaddling Kaden did give him a peaceful night’s sleep because being wrapped up nice and tight like a cute burrito made little Kaden feel safe and prevented him from getting startled by just about anything. It was a good solution and something that caused this little guy to form a really lovely habit every morning and after every nap.

When his parents finally unswaddle him after sleeping, little Kaden does something unusual.

The moment he is freed from his wrap, baby Kaden would throw his tiny arms up and stretch his little frame with a happy grin on his face. It’s definitely the cutest thing and his parents are quite overjoyed to see his smiling face whenever it happens. Kaden’s Mom and Dad always made sure they get to capture these cute moments on camera.

Eventually, Kent was able to compile a number of footages with his son throwing his “spring-loaded” arms and decided to upload a video on social media. He even added a line from the movie Braveheart, thinking that it would be something that their other family members would find cute and hilarious at the same time.

The clips were a fun compilation of cute Kaden’s arm-throwing episodes mixed with music for whenever his arms go up. The videos are creative and fun, giving Kaden’s unusual habit even more charm and leaving the viewers absolutely wrapped around the little boy’s chubby fingers.

The captions in the videos are hilarious, too!

“Kaden (between 3-4 months in the video) starts every day like a well-rested basketball player coming off the bench…PUT ME IN, COACH! #wakingupwithkaden”

While netizens find Kaden’s swaddling safe and acceptable, some have raised their concern as to whether swaddling really makes the child comfortable. His parents are quick to clarify:

“Kaden LOVES being swaddled. It provides him comfort and security when he sleeps. As many clinical professionals can attest, swaddling is very much a pediatrician-recommended method for soothing babies when they sleep. So long as the baby is not rolling over himself/herself, it’s completely safe. Kaden has a strong startle reflex (also known as the Moro Reflex) which causes him to jolt a lot at night and wake himself up. Since we started swaddling him, he sleeps much better and he loves it. Hope this helps clarify things!”
