A blanket wrapped snugly around your baby’s body can resemble the mother’s womb and help soothe your newborn baby. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that when done correctly, swaddling can be an effective technique to help calm infants and promote sleep.
If you plan to swaddle your infant at home, AAP provides a few guidelines to make sure you are doing it safely.
How to Swaddle Correctly
1. To swaddle, spread the blanket out flat, with one corner folded down.
2. Lay the baby face-up on the blanket, with her head above the folded corner.
