Swaddling Your Baby
I swaddled my first with his arms in until about 5 months, poor thing! I transitioned my other babies from an arms-in swaddle to an arms-out swaddle a little sooner. To get these swaddling positions just right, you’ll need a lot of practice! Hang in there! It’s important to remember to keep the blanket nice and tight so that your little one can’t escape, which ensures the swaddle is safe. For more on swaddling your little one, keep watching!
