Any other type of swaddle, including with a blanket, is prohibited.
Prior to any use of swaddling for sleep by a licensed provider, the license holder must obtain informed written consent for the use of swaddling from the parent or guardian of the infant. The parent or guardian must demonstrate to the provider how to safely place baby in the swaddle so it is not too tight or too loose.
