How to Swaddle a Baby

When you’re baby is crying there are many soothing techniques to calm her down. And swaddling your new born baby can be a great way to comfort her.

How to Swaddle

Swaddling is a soothing technique which can make your baby feel warm and gives a relaxing bed time effect that makes her calmer.

Here are our steps on how to swaddle:

Step 1: Make a diamond shape

Using your swaddle blanket make a diamond shape on a wide, flat surface but fold down the top corner a quarter of the way. Place your baby on his back with the neck against the top corner that you’ve folded down.

Step 2: The right side

Put your baby’s right arm down by their side. Pull the left corner of the blanket over the right arm and across his body, tuck it underneath. Your baby should still be able to move his hips so don’t make it too tight.

Step 3: The left side

Hold your baby’s left arm down by his side and pull the bottom corner up over his left shoulder. Put your baby’s left arm down by his side and tuck in the extra blanket around his left arm and side.

Step 4: Finish

Bring the last corner across your baby’s front and roll it under his right side.

And there you have it, a warm, snuggly swaddled baby.
