Swaddling is an age-old practice to comfort the baby, many new parents may wonder how to swaddle a baby to soothe them.
Spread out the swaddling blanket on a flat surface and arrange the blanket in a diamond shape, with the bottom pointing towards you.
Fold the top edge of the blanket, making it in the shape of a loose triangle.
Place your baby on the blanket with their feet pointing towards you and their shoulders below the blanket’s fold.
Place your baby’s right arm next to their body by slightly bending the arm. Next, fold the same side of the blanket over your baby’s arm and body and tuck it underneath their body on the other side. Remember to leave your baby’s left hand free.
Loosely fold the bottom of the blanket over the baby’s feet.
Take the remaining part (left corner) of the blanket and pull it over the left arm and across the right side of the body.
