Luke was writing to the Gentiles and signs of the babe, a firstborn,writing about his divinity in a cosmic sense and echoing Isaiah's prophecy he knew his audience needed to hear this aspect of his swaddling representing the one who came to redeem us not only as the Son of Man, but the manger that represent where the flock ate their food as He too, becomes our Bread of Life.
