Lay the swaddle in a diamond shape and fold the top corner down to form a triangle. Place your baby in the centre of the folded area with their head just above the fold of the swaddle. Check that your baby’s shoulders are still below the fold.
Place your baby’s right arm slightly bent at the elbow flat against their body. Take the left side of the swaddle and bring it across your baby’s chest. Ensure their arm is securely under the fabric. Tuck the edge of the swaddle under their body to ensure a secure swaddle.
Fold the bottom of the swaddle up and over your baby’s feet.
Finally, place your baby’s left arm slightly bent at the elbow against their body, take the right side of the swaddle and bring it across your baby’s chest. Tuck the excess fabric underneath your baby to secure the swaddle.
These swaddles are truly multi functional baby products, and are on the must -have list for every new born. Some of their many uses are demonstrated below, as a burping cloth, a change table cover, a breast feeding cover to avoid distraction and a stroller or pram cover to encourage a good peaceful nap.
Swaddling is said to be as familiar to babies as it is to their mums because it creates a secure and cosy feeling of the womb – and using a swaddle or wrap made of natural organic bamboo enhances that blissful feeling.
