Swaddling your newborn gives him the security of the womb. It often comforts a fussy baby in the first few weeks. Below are instructions for this tried and true practice of swaddling.

Step 1: Lay blanket on a flat surface

Step 2: Fold one corner of blanket

Step 3: Lay baby on blanket with head just above the fold.

Step 4: Take right corner of blanket and gently wrap over baby’s arm and tuck under opposite side.

Step 5: Take bottom corner and fold upward over baby’s feet and legs.

Step 6: Take left corner of blanket and gently wrap over baby’s arm and tuck around opposite side.

Swaddling should be snug and secure, not loosely wrapped.
