How to Swaddle a Baby

3. Bring the bottom of the blanket up and either fold the edge back or tuck it into the first swathe. Then pull the last corner of the blanket across your baby's chest, securing his left arm near his body.

4. Tuck the blanket under your baby's back as far as it will go. Keep your baby snugly wrapped as you pick him up.

TIP: Don't be alarmed if your baby wiggles his arms out while he sleeps. Some babies don't like having their arms confined. Try keeping his arms outside the blanket while you wrap it. Your baby might prefer this more natural position.
