Why is Swaddling Important?
Swaddling is one of the most important things you can do for your new baby. It’s going to help your little ray of sunshine sleep better and longer, it can prevent startle reflux and can help prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Swaddling will also help your baby stay warm and toasty for the first few days of life until their internal thermostat kicks in. While multiple studies have shown the importance of swaddling babies, doing it properly can be a challenge. Our patent-pending swaddle design will keep your baby cozy, comfortable and safe all night while taking out the guesswork of how to swaddle correctly every time, even in the middle of the night, when you yourself are bleary-eyed and exhausted.

We have an entire blog post and How-To video on how to swaddle using the snugababe swaddle that you can see right here.
How to Swaddle Using the snugababe swaddle:
Place baby on their back on top of the swaddle with their head and neck on top of the fold. Gently insert baby’s arms inside arm inserts.
Fold over left side of the swaddle over the baby’s chest and gently tuck it under the baby’s body, creating a cozy fit.
Fold over any excess fabric from the bottom of the swaddle and tuck it under the right shoulder or by the chest. Remember, arms tight, hips loose.
Bring the loose right corner and pull it snuggly, wrapping it behind the baby and secure it to the Velcro towards the left shoulder. Place baby on back to sleep.
When Should I Start and Stop Using the snugababe swaddle?
You can start swaddling your baby as soon as they’re born. The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) advises that once your baby is 2-3 months, you can start swaddling them with one arm out. If they get really fussy from having an arm out, it’s ok to keep swaddling them with both arms for a few more weeks until they learn to adjust. It helps to start the transition during naps and then work your way to the night time sleep routine. After approximately 4 months, some pediatricians will recommend you stop swaddling your baby, so have a chat with your pediatrician before you stop swaddling. If you want to start the transition of swaddling with one arm, here’s a helpful step-by-step guide HERE.
