If your baby seems too warm, dress her in
a diaper and the Miracle Blanket
The room temperature
where your baby sleeps should be comfortable
for a lightly dressed adult (67-72°F).
As your baby grows,
the blanket may seem loose around her legs.
This is perfectly okay. This will allow
for proper movement and development of her
hip and knee joints.
It is best to wrap your baby very snugly. It's normal
for her to fuss when first wrapped - especially
the first few times. But don't worry, after
a week or two most babies begin to relax
at the mere sight of the blanket.
Be sure that the blanket is NOT touching your baby's
cheeks. This may trigger her "Rooting Response" and
may wake her. If the blanket is touching
her cheeks, you have wrapped her too
in the blanket. You must be sure the top
of the blanket is slightly below the
of her shoulders.
It is very important to tuck the arm flaps
securely and flat under the baby's back
as the flaps keep your baby from working
her arms free and waking herself. This also
keeps your baby's arms in the most effective
position - at her sides.
Many babies prefer to have their feet free.
In step two you may position your baby with
her feet on top of the foot pouch to see

If your baby is able to roll over or is showing
signs that they will soon, we recommend
discontinuing tight swaddling. (Not just
in a Miracle Blanket, but in any tight
Important Note Regarding Carseats:
We do not recommend using the Miracle Blanket with a carseat. If a baby's arms and legs are inside the blanket then they cannot extend through the six point harness. It is imperative that an infant carseat be used EXACTLY as recommended by the manufacturer. This is even true if the carseat is used outside the car.
