Experts recommend swaddling baby in a natural position with elbows, knees and hips flexed for proper joint development, and with baby’s hands within reach of mouth so baby can suck on his or her fingers to self-console.
You may also choose to wrap baby with one or both hands down inside the swaddle with baby's elbows in a flexed position and offer baby a pacifier once breastfeeding is established.
Wrap SnuglySwaddleDesigns custom fit blankets help baby sleep better
A loose swaddle is ineffective, so wrap baby snugly, but not so tightly as to impede baby’s breathing. You should be able to slide your hand between the blanket and your baby’s chest. It should feel snug, not loose.
SwaddleDesigns large square blankets allow for a custom fit swaddle whether your baby is small, medium or large.
