We recommend starting newborns or premature babies in a size Small.

For newborns over the 80th percentile, we recommend starting with a size Medium.

If the Swado seems big, you can overlap the wings to cover your baby's shoulders and arms in a snug fit. The wings should cross below the neck, leaving a small and tight V-shape. Please watch this video to see what the proper fit of the Swado looks like.

The Swado swaddle fits snugly to fit your baby's unique body shape. This makes it impossible for the baby to wiggle down under the swaddle and eliminating the possibility of having loose fabric covering his/her face.

The lightweight material used in our Swado swaddles are sutiable for all temperatures. Simply dress your baby according to the weather.

To support your baby in an easy transition out of swaddling, swaddle your baby in the one-arm transitional swaddling position.

Once your baby has adjusted to the one-arm transitional position, progress to the arms-free position. Watch this video to see the different swaddling positions.

Pediatricians recommend that you stop swaddling when babies show signs of rolling over. At this point, your baby can wear Swado in an arms-free position as a wearable blanket / sleeping bag.


To keep your Swado looking like new close the wings and flaps of the Swado to avoid lint getting caught.

Put the Swado in the laundry net that comes with it and wash it in cold water and tumble dry in regular heat.

If the wings of your Swado are still damp after one drying cycle, open the wings and flaps and lay it on a flat surface.

To remove excess lint from Swado wings or flaps, use a lint roller or tape to take off the lint and restore hold.

Swado swaddles are ceritifed as "Hip Healthy" by the International Hip Association.

To allow healthy hip development, the swaddling blanket must allow your baby's legs to bend up and out at the hips. This space aids the natural growth of the hip joints as babies' legs are naturally pulled in towards their bodies in the womb, and continue to do so after they are born. Parents should avoid swaddling products that wrap too tightly at the hip or force baby's legs straight down.
