Swaddling helps soothe baby, mimicking the mother's womb, and calms those startle reflexes that often wake baby....and mama :-) It's not nearly as hard as it looks, and really, it can be done with any appropriate weight/sized blanket.
Let's get this swaddling started....
|Fold your square into half, creating a triangle.|
|Center your baby and align shoulders with the top of the blanket.|
|Bring left wing down to bottom right of baby.|
|Take bottom left corner and take it to top right shoulder.|
|Tuck excess material under right shoulder.|
|Take right wing and wrap around center of baby, as many times as necessary, until fabric is totally wrapped.|
|Tuck any excess material in previous folds.|
