When the inner band gets loose and rides up, it means that it was put on too loosely or that your baby was able bend his elbows and push it up with his arms. To prevent this from happening make sure you:
- Pull inner band very snug across arms/chest
- Make sure the inner band is covering most or all of his hands
- If he is still getting it up, try putting him in a long sleeve shirt before putting in the SNOO Sack or using one of the techniques to keep the swaddle from loosening shown on our website.
When the band rides up, it is still quite loose. Even if it 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.
