How to swaddle your baby

Swaddling helps your baby feel secure, cozy and sleep better on his/her back. Wrapping your baby like a burrito is an ancient and proven soothing technique, that gives your baby time to adapt to the loud and chaotic outside, by recreating a womb-like, soothing environment that an empty crib, a bassinet or just laying on their backs cannot offer.

Before starting remember that while swaddling you have to make sure the arms are snug but the legs and hips have wiggle room



Step 1: Fold down the corner of your swaddle and place your baby

Step 2:  Pull the right side of swaddle leaving the left arm free and tuck it under the baby. Wrap your baby in a natural position with elbows, knees and hips flexed for proper joint development.


Step 3: Fold the bottom of the swaddle up, place left arm alongside the body, slightly bent.

Step 4: Wrap the remaining on the swaddle all the way around the baby and tuck it under to secure.
