  • I still couldn’t tell you how to swaddle a baby after watching this. I got too distracted at watching the baby. He’s so cute, I can’t believe he was so happy and content. It was mega cute when he sneezed. Awwww.

  • Oh yes! Swaddle a Baby is such a great thing to do! We recommend swaddling for even 6 months and rocking a baby to sleep for the first 3 months. Then you can start the HWL method from our short guide “How to teach a baby to fall asleep alone” to make your baby to fall asleep on her/his own. A few days of our method without Cry It Out and Success
    Guaranteed! Comments on our website speak for themselves

  • My baby only likes to be swaddled around his stomach when he is gassy or not feeling good. Does anyone have problems swaddling babies who like their feet and hands out.

  • Why is it they fo all these swaddling and double swaddling these days??
    In the 70’s in USA my babies were not rolled like burritos. Just one receiving blanket.
    I think this social media and marketing people selling their products!!!

  • I know a lot of babies feel comforted being snuggly swaddled, but my granddaughter can’t stand it. She sleeps with her arms stretched above her head and her legs far apart haha. Shes 4 mo.s

  • Its really helpful next time when i will meet my baby mamma then i will show to her how to cover babby with many type position. And then she will give me a kiss
    Am sure..

  • May I ask something… why should we swaddle a baby without allowing him to move hands and legs freely… is that comfortable for him

  • Omg thank you so much for this video!! I’m 20 and I will be adopting a baby which makes me really nervous but this is really helpful ��❤️


  • Ok so I read the title and was reminded about once upon a time when snow white and prince charming were bickering over who swaddles the baby better and snow white said ” He’s a baby not a breakfast burrito”
    Am I the only one?


  • Swaddling a baby can kill or severely injure the baby why do you do it, all for a few dollars, shame on you one day you will have to answer to God

  • People are funny not realizing that when this video was made this is how it was done. They now know that too tightly swaddling the legs is not good, but it was done like this when my first was born 18 years ago. When my second was born 6.5 years ago most hospitals have the Halo Sleep Sacks they use instead. Times change and so do methods.

  • New papa here. Your instructions were fantastic! Thank you for making such a helpful video! Learning the knotted swaddle saved me like $90 in the additional Halo sleep sacks I was about to buy. We have a few, and they’re great, but pricey. Cheers to you and your beautiful family!

  • Swaddle! Why you confined hand movement.I did it for my Daughter after a minute her Hans was free and if was tight she scream her he’d off.Now she has two baby of her own she could not Swaddle them either.

  • Baby due in late December:) I really like the second one with the knot at the bottom, it looks like it makes for easier diaper changes? I may be wrong, I’m a first-time mom

  • Thank u so much for posting. I got this as a gift and didn’t save the instructions. I was completely clueless! You make it look easy… Hope it’s that way when I get to try it!:)

  • my one month newborn baby is passing stool in a day 10 times or more in yellow colour sometimes green not exactly green mixed with yellow. so how should it be in normal stool

  • Why they do that? Why they dont let baby move their hand and legs. They were in tight place long time. I think they should Let it free.

  • Question about swaddling, I am about to have my first child and I am leaning more towards using a traditional swaddle over the velcro/zipper swaddles. What lead you to traditionally swaddling your babies?

  • Marla Aycho, do you normally just put your child in a onesie before wrapping them in the blanket? Do they wear pajamas during cold months?

  • First time papa here, baby was born 3 days ago, this definitely helped more than a traditional swaddle, greatly appreciate this video, sooooooooo helpful!

  • Sorry if i am asking a stupid question here.wich size did you use? And how old is the baby? I am from europe and we use kilograms.i would like to swaddle my baby the first 3 months only.i am not sure wich size to buy? S or L?

  • Ma perché questa mania di mummizzare delle creature indifese, provate solo a immaginare come ci si deve sentire,…..mi viene da urlareeee

  • This is so awesome! �� I got swaddle blankets only to discover that I am very bad at swaddling my 1 month old son and this video is so easy to follow, I just successfully did the knotted swaddle after only watching twice! It’s not perfect but he hasn’t Houdinied his way out just yet so it’s a win haha. Thank you!

  • Single best swaddle video I’ve watched (and I’ve watched about a hundred in the last 3 days). Brief, concise, clearly filmed, and best of all… adorable baby smile. Thank you!!

  • That looks horrible! The baby is swaddled too tight….what is it a straight jacket? Looks like torture! Looks like child abuse! How is the baby supposed to move?

  • Wt nonsense…. i wish this lady should be swaddled tight that way where she cannot move. Poor baby. I dont understand why people swaddle babies too tight and dont let them move freely…

  • Es una guaguita no un paquete de envio cuanto mas envuelve achica un poco mas enpaqueta la cabezan totalmente demaciado loco es un bebe

  • Thanks for the quick tutorial on how to use the swaddle! We were given one from a friend and trying to find any instructions online has been a pain. Appreciate the informative and clear video.

  • I am due in October and was really looking forward to learning how to swaddle but have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE where to start. Thank you so much for this video from me and from my baby A on the way!

  • Congratulations to you and your family you look absolutely stunning beautiful gorgeous what brand of diapers are you using love Pampers and huggies
