Dear Red Nose, we’ve been wrapping our 4 week old baby in the muslin wraps, but she often gets very frustrated that she can’t move her arms & we often wake in the morning to find that she’s escaped. Is it ok to use the stretchy wraps instead? Many thanks, Ellen

Red Nose Education

Some babies do not respond well to wrapping & like to have their arms free to touch their face &/or suck their fingers.
You could try not wrapping or also modifying the wrap by wrapping with arms out (under armpits)
Of course, there is also a risk that a loose wrap could cover baby’s head & face.

Red Nose has information about wrapping on web site.
