Double Swaddle Method

Active Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 1 minute

If you have a baby who always seems to escape from her swaddle, use this double swaddle method to keep her arms cozy and secure. For best results, use at least one stretchy swaddle blanket.


  • Two swaddle blankets
  • A baby 🙂


  1. Put the main swaddle blanket down in a diamond shape. Fold the top corner down about 1/4 of the way. This is where your baby's head will go in a minute.
  2. Fold another swaddle blanket into a rectangle and place it on top of the blanket you folded down.

  3. Lay your baby down so the top of his or her shoulders are parallel with the part of the blanket you folded down.
  4. Fold one rectangle piece over your baby’s arm and then tuck it under his or her back to secure the arm. Repeat this step for the other arm.
  5. Swaddle as normal, folding one side in and tucking it behind baby's back. Then fold the bottom up and the other side over.


Knit viscose bamboo swaddle blankets are super stretchy and work wonders for the rectangle blanket. They will keep your little one's arms tucked in nicely but also allow a little movement.
