If you have a newborn or have someone close to you who does, you're probably in the market for a baby swaddle.  Because styles and requirements vary, we put together this list of the best free patterns we could find.

I absolutely love them but I’m not sure if in my country it would be usable because of our climate. But they’re very nice. I may try one of them though.Thanks for sharing them.

I am in total agreement with Nicola Malee. I absolutely love the designs and will try to make some for the Hospital as well.

Love these of course I need to try some and hope if I can to take them to the special care baby Unit at the hospital so thank you so much.

Before you make any for the hospital, please take one and show it to the NICU manager to see if they can use them. Also, you will need to leave part of each side seam open so monitor wires, IV tubing, etc can be threaded thru. I am a retired NICU RN. As these are made on this pattern, they would not be very practical in the NICU as all babies have monitor leads, etc.
