How to Swaddle Your Baby
Use a large square or rectangular baby blanket—ideally one that has a little bit of stretch to it.
Swaddle alternative: There are pre-folded Velcro swaddle blankets on the market that make the technique essentially foolproof (most will fit best on babies a month or older). You still need to follow the same steps when for securely the arms and wrapping the blanket tightly. But there’s no folding or tucking required—much easier, especially for middle of the night diaper changes!
