It wasn't until my third or fourth child that I discovered the wonders of the muslin swaddle blanket.  For my children before that, I struggled to wrap their tiny bodies tightly in undersized flannel receiving blankets. I probably opened in excess of 20 of these types of blankets at my baby shower, but they didn't work well for two reasons. A. Flannel isn't stretchy and B. They were two small to get them underneath the baby, around their back and to the front, which is necessary for a good swaddle.

I read about muslin swaddle blankets and decided to give them a try.  When I saw the high price tag on the name brand store versions, I ended up in the same place I always do in a situation like that...with an Amazon package of fabric yardage and a trip upstairs to my sewing room. DIY or die, baby!

Now, upon a little research I discovered, muslin swaddle blankets aren't actually made out of muslin at all. They are made from a super lightweight, and mildly stretchy, cotton gauze. The fabric feels a little scratchy when you first get it out of the package, but after a few washings its buttery smooth.

Two and a half yards of 52" wide cotton gauze fabric will get you two swaddle blankets.

Now, get ready for it, this tutorial is soooo simple!

How to make muslin swaddle blankets
Cut out a 43" by 50" piece of cotton gauze fabric.
Press the edges over 1/2" and then another 1/2" to hide the raw edges inside.
Sew the hem in place.
Take special care on the corners to back and forward stitch all the way to the edges, so they are fully sewn down.

Babywearing Wrap Tutorial- How to Wrap a Newborn in a Moby Wrap

I currently have a six week old baby, so that is what I show in this tutorial. I also love to wrap my older babies as well. Perhaps I will share a tutorial on that when Micah gets a little older!

Every newborn wants to be held close, around the clock. Sure makes it hard for a new mama to get the dishes and laundry done. Also, who wants to take a fussy baby to the store or out with friends?!

Since I exclusively nurse my babies until at least six months, I can't leave the house without them. With babywearing, that doesn't bother me at all! I just wrap them up, and they feel like they are still in the womb. Comfy and happy!

With five kids, babywearing is the only way I can keep up with all my kiddos, and homemaking responsibilities, without losing my sanity.

I absolutely love my wraps, and don't know how I would do life without them!

With my other babies I used the Moby Wrap. The tying, and wearing, process is the exact same. But, I really prefer the weight of the Boba Baby wrap. It is hardly heavier than just a regular T-shirt. Since I wear my wrap all day, so I can slip the baby in and out as needed, this lightweight wrap is my favorite yet!

I hope this tutorial was helpful for you. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below.

It’s one of the first things you learn as a parent – the art of the “baby burrito.” Swaddling snugly wraps a baby in a blanket for warmth and security. It can keep your infant from being disturbed by startling reflexes and calm him or her from over-stimulation. Most new mothers learn how to swaddle before leaving the hospital, but here’s a refresher video from our nursing staff on how to most effectively bundle your joy.
