How To Swaddle Your Baby With Confidence and Style!

LET'S TALK SWADDLING 


We pride ourselves on creating beautiful yet practical pieces at Tilly & Otto.


Swaddling is an age old tradition and proven sleep assist for many babe's....When your baby is swaddled, she is taken back to the days in the womb, when everything was comfortable, safe and snug....


The beauty of swaddling is in it's simplicity.  If you have a swaddle/muslin and two loving hands, you cant go wrong! 

 

It's just about finding a technique and establishing a routine that both you and your little one are most comfortable with....and as they say..practice makes perfect!


So...here we go!


step 1

Fold the swaddle into a diamond shape, and place baby on back in the centre with shoulders just below the fold.

step 2

Place baby’s right arm alongside the body, slightly bent. Take the same side of the swaddle and pull it securely across baby’s arm and chest, tucking the fabric under the baby. Leave the left arm free.

step 3

Fold the bottom of the swaddle up and over baby’s feet. Tuck the point of the fabric into the top of the swaddle.

step 4

Place baby’s left arm alongside the body, slightly bent. Take the remaining swaddle, and wrap it over baby’s arm and chest, tucking the fabric under baby to secure the swaddle.

Happy swaddling mama's!  Not only will your babe hopefully be more settled and sleep for longer...they will look absolutely DIVINE doing it!  lol
