  1. Step One

    Place blanket on a flat surface in a diamond position in front of you with the 123 Swaddle Tip Tag visible on your upper right hand side.
    Fold the top corner down about 6 inches, and place baby in the center of the blanket with their neck at the fold.

    Starting on your left, bring the 1st corner over and tuck snugly behind baby.
    Ensure baby’s hips and knees are in a flexed froglike position inside the swaddle. 
    Do not straighten or over extend your baby’s joints.

    The bottom corner goes up and over baby's left shoulder and behind baby's back. The weight of the baby will help to keep the swaddle secure. The blanket should not touch baby's cheek which may stimulate rooting and wake baby.

    Take the 3rd corner across and all the way around behind baby, tucking the tail of the blanket into the fold in the front. Avoid having the blanket touch baby's cheek. This can stimulate baby's rooting response and wake baby.
