Swaddling should only be used on babies up to 2 months of age. Check for tightness. You should be able to slide your hand between the blanket and your baby’s chest. You should still be able to bend your baby’s hips easily with room for the baby to move his/her hips or legs. If your baby is swaddled too loosely, the blanket can come undone and can cause your baby to suffocate. Watch this video for a quick demonstration on how to properly swaddle your baby.
