Step 2: Gently place the baby on her back on the blanket so that her head is above the fold at the top.
Step 3: Holding her right arm down straight at her side, wrap that side of the blanket across her body.
Lift up her left arm so that the blanket can go underneath it and tuck the blanket snugly behind her.
Step 4: Fold the bottom corner of the blanket so that it comes up only as high as the baby’s neck.
Make sure it does not cover the baby’s face in any way.
Step 5: Holding the baby’s left arm at her side, fold the right side of the blanket across her body and tuck it in tightly behind her.
You can also buy special blankets with features like hook-and-loop or velcro fasteners. Check links under the video for more details.
Step 6: Repeat with the other blanket till you have a snug swaddle.
The whole technique of swaddling, is aimed at keeping your baby feeling snug and secure.
