Check that your baby isn’t too hot by feeling his or her ears and fingers. If they are red and sweaty it means they are too hot.
To reduce the risk of death from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, always place your baby on their back to sleep after swaddling them.
Make sure you don’t swaddle your baby too tightly. Your baby should feel snug, but not confined Stop swaddling your baby as soon as they can roll over.
As your baby gets older and develops you can half swaddle by leaving one arm free then progressing to having both arms free.
