You are home from the hospital and you don’t remember how the nurse swaddled your newborn baby to make him stop crying. Everything was going so fast and whenever you try to do it at home, he just cries. The swaddle comes undone and it doesn’t serve the purpose of keeping him protected and comforted.

We’ve found two awesome videos that show you two different ways of swaddling a baby. They are different, but both have valuable tips and information for new parents. It’s up to you which method you choose.

Plus, both videos show you some dos and don’ts when it comes to swaddling. As you’ll see in the video below, you don’t want to swaddle your baby too tightly, as this could lead to some problems.

In the videos, the doctors use swaddle blankets to swaddle the babies. However, these days, you can get swaddle bags that can use velcro to hold it tight. As you can see, there is plenty of room for the legs, so your little one can kick. You can grab them on Amazon. Click on the image below for current price on Amazon.Olive and Cleo


If you prefer to use the swaddle blankets used in the video, then you should get these ones below. They are great for sleeping and can be used to keep your little one warm. Plus, when he’s had an accident and it has leaked through the diaper, you can easily throw them in the wash. Plus, they also work as mild blankets when you just have to get out of the house for a bit. Click on the image below for current price on Amazon.
