Guide to baby swaddling

1. Open out your baby swaddle and lay the swaddle down on the floor in a diamond shape. Bring the top corner down to form a triangle. Lay baby in the center of the triangle with head above fold but shoulders need to be within the fold.

2.  Your baby's right arm needs to be slightly bent at the elbow and must be flat against their body.

Take left handside of the baby swaddle and bring across baby's chest - ensuring arm is secure within swaddle.
Tuck edge underneath baby's body.

Remember not to swaddle too tightly, your baby needs to feel secure but also comfortable.
