When the inner band gets loose and rides up, it means that it was strapped on too loosely or that your baby was able to bend their elbows and push it up with their arms. To prevent this from happening, make sure you:
- Pull inner band very snug across arms/chest
- Make sure the inner band is covering at least your little one's knuckles
- Try double-swaddling with a diaper cloth or light muslin blanket to prevent wiggling
- Is your baby able to roll side-to-side unassisted? If yes, it might be time to start letting your baby's arms out of the SNOO sack!
Even if the velcro strap touches a baby’s upper chest or neck, it is not a risk! However, it is important to make sure the zipper is completely closed (top and bottom) to prevent any part of the sleep sack from getting over your baby’s face.
