Have you ever been in the stores and wondered how a sleep sack for a baby works?
Well, to change one on a child, this article can explain how.
Baby's Arms Through the Armholes inside the Garment
Gather all the items you’ll need, including the child who needs their sleepsack changed for some reason as well as a sleepsack, and whatever else may need to be changed at the same time.
Lay them down on a flat surface where they can’t roll off and hurt themselves.
Open the zipper tab flap that should be currently covering the child’s zipper (if one is included, which most should have).
Zipper down the zipper to the garment, until it reaches the terminus at near the base of the sack.
Take your one hand and reach into their sleeves.
Grab their arm.
Pull their arm gently but firmly towards their face and body.
Repeat with pulling the other arm out of the other sleeve.
Replacement with New
Prepare to switch the old sleepsack for a new sleepsack.
Reach down and pick up your child.
Most parents prefer to have their spouse hold the child while they switch the garments.
However, another spouse isn’t close by to help out, you may end up holding your baby on your shoulder, as if you were attempting to burp them!
Unzip the zipper, to the new garment, and place this one in approximately the same position as the old one was, flat open with the neck area above the base.
Lay the baby back down into the garment, with only their feet (at this point) laying slightly inside the unzipped sleep sack.
Reach for your baby’s first arm.
Place your baby’s one arm gently into the sleeve.
Push your baby’s arm into the sleeve until the sleeve arm can’t reach out any further or until the baby’s arm reaches out past the end of the sleeve.
Repeat this placing and pushing steps for the other hand.
Zipper up the garment.
Close the zipper tab flap, to ensure your baby can’t play with the zipper once you close it.
