As a mom, you need to learn the basics of taking care of your baby, which includes the proper way to swaddle your baby. See, your newborn cannot regulate temperature properly yet.. so you always need to keep him warm.

Though it seems like you can do it anyway you want to, there’s a basic step by step process on how to swaddle your baby.

Check these out:

Keep your baby snug!
Doing a nice, snug swaddle is a really useful skill. It helps settle a baby when he’s overstimulated, prevents him from being disturbed by his own startle reflex, and keeps him toasty until his internal thermostat kicks in.

Start with a diamond
Lay a baby blanket on a flat surface, position it like a diamond, and fold down the top corner. Place your baby on his back with his neck on the fold.

The right side tuck
Hold your baby’s right arm down flat at his side. Pull the left corner of the blanket over his right arm and across his body, then tuck it under his left arm and roll him to your left to wrap whatever is remaining under his back – the tighter the better.

The left side tuck
Hold your baby’s left arm down and pull the bottom corner up over his left shoulder. Tuck any extra material around his left arm.

The big finish
Bring the loose right corner straight out to pull it taut, then pull it across your baby’s front and roll him to your right a bit so you can wrap the corner all the way around his back.
