If you’ve never had a child, then the idea of wrapping your newborn baby up so tightly that it can’t move its arms might sound like a crazy idea. But most experienced parents will tell you their newborn is comforted when wrapped in a swaddle — they cry less and sleep more when they’re in the blanket.

Generally, swaddling is safe for all babies. Somewhere between three and four months, most can stop being swaddled – but especially fussy kiddos can be wrapped up until 9 months. The tightly wrapped blanket helps keep your little one warm and sleep through the night… what could be better?

YouTube baby guru Drahbany recently took to the internet to give us all some insight into how to swaddle properly. Along with his 5-day-old daughter, who may be the real star of his tutorial, Drahbany was able to calm his kiddo down in a minute flat.

Using his “Happiest Baby on The Block" technique, he shows a simple 3 step folding process called the Up-Down-Up-Down method that calmed his baby down in the cutest way. It keeps the baby’s arms next to its body, safely away from tiny baby eyes and makes for one adorable baby burrito. That is so cute and oh my gosh, so effective!

So next time your baby fusses, just remember the three S’s: swaddle, side and shush. It’s a proven recipe!
