- When using a square cloth, fold back one corner creating a straight edge.
- Place the baby on the cloth so that the top of the fabric is at shoulder level. If using a rectangular cloth, the baby’s shoulders will be placed at the top of the long side.
- Bring the left arm down. Wrap the cloth over the arm and chest. Tuck under the right side of the baby.
- Bring the right arm down and wrap the cloth over the baby’s arm and chest.
- Tuck the cloth under the left side of the baby. The weight of the baby will hold the cloth firmly in place.
- Twist or fold the bottom end of the cloth and tuck behind the baby, ensuring that both legs are bent up and out.
Recommended by The Independent as the best environmentally-friendly swadding blanket.
Recommended by Janet Balaskas, founder of London's Active Birth Centre, as your baby's first swaddling blanket.
Janet says: "Newborns often feel more secure when swaddled in a shawl, light blanket or flannel sheet in the early weeks. Fold this into a triangle first. Then, when your baby is dressed, place her in the centre, shoulders level with the folded edge. Fold up the bottom first and then cross over the sides one at a time and tuck in."
"It can help a baby who is having trouble with positioning and latching onto the breast, to be securely swaddled in this way before feeding."
