How to swaddle your baby using the Angel Wrap
How to wrap your baby using the Angel Wrap
In today’s video, I am demonstrating the angel wrap swaddle.
I love this type of swaddle as it works with your babies natural flexed posture and allows their hands to be towards their midline, which is their position of comfort.
This swaddle is perfect for baby’s from newborn to rolling age, around 4-6 months of age.
To perform the swaddle:
Place a sizeable muslim wrap flat on the ground.
Fold the top of the muslim wrap 1/4 of the swaddle width.
Place your baby with their back on the swaddle, their neck aligned with the top of the swaddle.
Take one of your baby’s arm and place it underneath the folded over section of the muslim wrap. Tuck any excess material underneath your baby’s torso.
Repeat the above step with your baby’s other arm.
With the hands placed under the folder section of the wrap, pull the material covering one arm across the body to the opposite side of the body, tucking is underneath your baby’s torso, so it’s tight and secure.
Repeat the process on the other side.
Keep the material loose around the legs and hips to prevent developmental hip dysplasia. The material around the legs should be loosely tucked under your baby’s back.
And wallah! You have accomplished the angel wrap!
This swaddle will prevent your baby from startling themselves awake, while also allowing them access to their hands to use to suck on. Win win!
