How to Swaddle Your Baby

Posted by

Many moms think swaddling their baby is difficult and are intimated about even trying. But, it really is fairly simple when you follow these four steps:

howtobaby







STEP 1: Lay the swaddle in a diamond shape and fold the top corner down to form a triangle. Place your baby in the center of the folded area with their head just above the fold of the swaddle. Ensure that your baby’s shoulders are still below the fold.

STEP 2: Place your baby’s right arm slightly bent at the elbow flat against their body. Take the left side of the swaddle and bring it across your baby’s chest. Ensure their arm is securely under the fabric. Tuck the edge of the swaddle under their body to ensure a secure swaddle.

STEP 3: Fold the bottomof the swaddle up and over your baby’s feet.

STEP 4: Finally, place your baby’s left arm slightly bent at the elbow against their body, take the right side of the swaddle and bring it across your baby’s chest. Tuck the excess fabric underneath your baby to secure the swaddle.
