Do Twins, Triplets, etc. get claustrophobic?

Swaddling can stop a baby from crying, so apparently being confined can be comforting to newborn babies.

Swaddling creates a slight pressure around your baby's body that gives most newborns a sense of security because it mirrors the pressure they would have felt in utero. For some babies it becomes the trigger for sleep, but others don't enjoy it. You should stop swaddling your baby once he is about a month old because after that it can interfere with mobility and development.
