Swaddling is great to create comfort and security around your newborn baby. It not only calms and soothes but it also could help your baby sleep longer.
For generations, parents have cared for their babies with muslin. Breathable, versatile, and soft as a mother’s touch, the do-it-all fabric helps simplify what can be a chaotic time. Burp cloth or nursing cover to name just a few—it surrounds your little one in comfy goodness round the clock.

Seven safe and hip friendly swaddling tips:
- Swaddle your baby using thin, breathable materials. Suitable cloth includes cotton receiving blankets, cotton muslin wraps, or specialised cotton-winged baby swaddles. Don’t over layer them
- Don’t swaddle your baby above their shoulders – their neck and head should never be swaddled.
- Wrap your baby firmly but gently (not too tightly). Tight swaddling that stops your baby’s hips and knees moving freely is not recommended. Swaddling your baby too tightly might cause hip dysplasia, which is where the hip does not form correctly.
- Use hip-healthy swaddling techniques to reduce the risk of hip dysplasia. Make sure your baby is able to move their hips and knees freely to kick. Your baby’s legs should be able to fall into a natural position (like frog legs).
- Always put your baby to sleep on their back. Never put a swaddled baby to sleep on their front or side.
- Check your baby’s temperature regularly to make sure they don’t get too hot or overheat. Check they’re wearing suitable clothes for the weather too.
- If someone else looks after your baby, make sure they also know about safe sleeping advice and how to swaddle safely. Take your time to show them and explain safe swaddling and make sure they know to always put your baby to sleep on their back.
