Swaddle Arms out or arms in??? Which way?
 
Do you prefer arms in or arms out. Which one should I attempt first. Never tried this yet.

I'd say try arms in first, since you're trying to replicate the feeling of being secure in the womb. If baby doesn't like it, try arms out.

I think most babies like arms in however mine did not. The plus to arms in is that they dont scratch themselves!

Arms in to start with, then go from there.

I would say arms in since you are trying to help with their startle reflex where they will flail their arms in their sleep and wake themselves up. However, I saw a video that said you should use arms out at night to ensure that the blanket doesn't creep up over their mouth as they wiggle. I will have to see how securely I can do a swaddle.
