How to Double Swaddle a Baby

All three of my babies have loved to be swaddled. The problem is, around three months they started “breaking out” of their swaddles and getting really sad.

So, my husband and I invented the double swaddle! We swaddle our little one in a blanket… then, grab a second blanket and repeat the process. It’s wonderful! I was able to swaddle my older two toddlers until 8 months because of the “double swaddle.”

Here is a step-by-step!
