Swaddling Your Baby: The Burrito Roll

The "Burrito Roll" is a more secure (and longer-lasting) version of the Quick Wrap swaddle. When properly dressed in a Burrito Roll, the baby will resemble a popular Mexican foodstuff that consists of a flour tortilla rolled around a meat or bean filling.
Burrito Roll Figure One

1. Lay a square blanket on a flat surface. The blanket should be large enough to cover the baby's entire body.

2. Fold one corner of the blanket down about the length of your hand.

3. Lay the baby on the blanket diagonally so the fold is above the top of the baby's neck.
