1. Use a lightweight, breathable blanket: Choose newborn baby swaddles made of lightweight, breathable fabric like cotton or muslin. Avoid swaddle blankets that are too heavy or made of synthetic materials that can cause overheating.

2. Keep it snug but not too tight: A swaddle wrap should be snug enough to keep the baby's arms and legs secure but not so tight that it restricts breathing or movement.

3. Keep the baby's head uncovered: Ensure the swaddling cloth leaves the baby's head and neck uncovered to prevent overheating and ensure proper breathing.

4. Keep the swaddle below the shoulders: The swaddling cloth should be wrapped below the baby's shoulders to allow for healthy movement of the hips and legs.

5. Use a swaddle specifically designed for infants: Swaddle blankets designed for infants often have unique features like adjustable fasteners or pre-folded wings to ensure a safe and secure swaddle.

The SuperBottoms Dry Feel Swaddle Wrap is made of 100% cotton, has no harsh buttons or zips, and comes with a Super DryFeel layer that keeps the baby dry and comfortable even if they pee.

6. Stop swaddling when the baby starts to roll over: Once a baby starts rolling over, it's time to stop swaddling to prevent the risk of suffocation or injury.

7. Don't overuse swaddling: While swaddling can be a helpful technique, it's essential to rely on it sparingly. Babies need time to explore and develop their muscles, so allow plenty of time for unswaddled play.

8. Monitor the baby: Always keep a close eye on them while they are swaddled to ensure they are comfortable and safe. If the baby seems uncomfortable or overheated, unwrap the baby swaddle wrap immediately.

BOTTOM LINE

It's important to note that not all babies like to be swaddled, and some may prefer different sleep arrangements or positions. Wrapping safely is also essential, ensuring the blanket or cloth is not too tight and does not cover the baby's face. If you're unsure whether swaddling suits your baby, talk to your pediatrician.
