When your baby arrives, there are lots of emotions you shall experience, from the happiness at the life you’ ve created, to the depression at not being able to satisfy baby’ s needs or settle them to sleep. This is pretty normal and in the end we all go through it.
At the early stage of life, it can comfort your baby when swaddling them for all day-time naps and night-time sleeps, for it creates a circumstance like womb, making your baby feel snug and safe. When you swaddle your little one, ensure that your baby’ s arms are fully wrapped in to avoid their startle reflex from waking them up. Swaddle them also helps to settle your baby down when they are too active.
It is important to swaddle your baby correctly. If you've never swaddled a baby, it might seems complicated. But it doesn't have to be. Practice the following steps a few times and you'll be a master.
First, leave some room at the bottom of the swaddle to allow your baby to bend their legs up and out.
Second, put your swaddling blanket on a soft, flat surface. Arrange the blanket in a diamond shape with the bottom of the diamond pointing toward you.
Third, fold down the top edge of the blanket. This should create a loose triangle shape. Set your baby with his feet pointing toward you. Make his shoulder on below the fold in the blanket.
Fourth, arrange you baby's right arm next to his body with his arm slightly bent. Pull the same side of the blanket up and over your baby's right arm and body, then tuck it underneath your baby. Your baby's left arm should be left free.
Fifth, fold the bottom of the swaddle blanket up over your baby's feet. If the blanket is long enough, tuck it behind his shoulder.
Finally, complete the swaddle by pulling the remaining side of the swaddle up and over your baby's remaining arm and across his body. Now your baby is neatly swaddled. Hold him in arms and show him how colorful the world is!
