How to Use Baby Swaddle Blankets Effectively?One of the challenges a lot of new parents face is trying to figure out the right process to swaddling. Swaddles are blankets that wrap snugly around a baby’s body and simulate the feeling of the womb, so the baby can be soothed. When done the right way, swaddling can be a super efficient technique to calm down infants and also help them sleep better.

If you want to swaddle your baby at home, there are a few guidelines to do it in an effective manner:

Always Place The Back to Sleep:

A child loves the feeling of being protected and swaddles give the feeling of being in a mother’s womb

The best way to swaddle a newborn is to place them on their back. This position allows you to properly tuck in their hands and legs into the swaddle so that they can enjoy a calm and peaceful sleep.

If your babies are swaddled, you must also place them on their backs so they are always comfortable and enjoy the warmth of the swaddle to the fullest.

Find A Flat Surface:

You need to start by spreading the sleep swaddles for babies in the shape of a diamond with one corner pointing upwards on the flat surface. You can then fold the top corner by around 6 inches.

Place The Baby Face-Up:

The baby’s head must sit above the folded edge that’s present on the blanket. The body must extend straight below the bottom corner.

Straighten The Left Arm:

Take the left side and wrap it right over the chest and left arm. You can tuck the blanket right underneath the right arm as well as the back. The left arm is covered but the right arm remains free.

Bring Up The Bottom:

Next, fold the blanket’s bottom corner right over the baby’s body and also tuck it below the first fold. The baby’s right arm can be straightened and you can pull it over the body and tuck it on the left side.

Finally, twist the bottom loosely and tuck it right under the baby, and you can secure it.

With this technique, you’ll be able to swaddle your baby perfectly and ensure they don’t wriggle out of the swaddle. Some babies may take time to adjust and that’s totally normal. Just make sure that the baby is secured snugly, and not too tightly and keep them on their backs to give them the soundest sleep!
