How to Swaddle Your Baby
How to swaddle your baby step by step:
Spread the blanket out flat on a changing table, bed, or the floor, and fold over one of the corners
Lay your baby face-up on the blanket positioned with his head at the folded corner
Wrap the right corner over your baby (with his right arm straight down by his side), and tuck the end of the blanket underneath him
Bring the bottom corner of the blanket up over his feet
Wrap the left corner over your baby (with his left arm straight down by his side), leaving just his head and neck exposed
Check that the blanket isn’t too tight or constricting around his hips and legs, and that his lower body can still move about. Wrapping your baby too tightly in a swaddle can lead to hip dysplasia or dislocation.
