How to know if you have a good blanket for swaddling:
1. It should be square. If it's not, you will have a lopsided swaddle.
2. It should be big. If it's not big enough baby will wiggle out. Stick with blankies at least 40"x 40". Anything smaller than that will be difficult to get a good wrap after multiple washings.
3. It should be natural. Cotton allows that fresh baby skin to breathe while keeping baby secure.
Here is a step-by-step pictorial of the perfect swaddle. Happy Baby=Happy Mom!
