Why use blankets when duct tape is such a better alternative? [Sarcasm intended]

These women have had their previous business shut down for the same violation, which states that the practice of wrapping the infants tightly is prohibited in this state. It's one thing if they do it to their own kids, but not to the kids entrusted to their care. Bottom line, it's against the law, they knew it and they persisted in practicing this method of trrying to keep the kids quiet. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but in our country this practice is not legal......

I found this article from Minnesota Star Tribune. It opens with the name Dr. Harvey Karp. Web Link

If you go out to You Tube, there are quite a few how to videos--one method uses two blankets. It looks like they are trussing a turkey.
