Swaddling Safety Tips:

  • Always place your baby on their back to sleep.
  • Stop swaddling your baby once they are ready to roll over on their own.
  • Avoid swaddling too tightly.
  • Dress your baby lightly and use a light blanket to prevent overheating.
  • Use a firm mattress in baby's crib to prevent suffocation.
  • Keep loose blankets, pillows and stuffed toys out of the crib.
  • Do make space for your baby's legs to bend at the knees and thrust open. 
  • Don't limit your baby's arm movement against their will.
