If you have a baby that likes to be swaddled, let me introduce you to the Woombie! The Woombie is THE EASIEST way to swaddle a baby!
The Woombie was designed by a RN & Certified Infant Care Specialist, providing the safest and most comfortable swaddle for your baby. Gently hugging the shoulders, tummy and hips, the Woombie allows for natural movement, softly cocooning your baby without restricting mobility or development. The fabric mimics the feeling of touch and cuddle, re-creating the womb environment that baby felt prior to birth, which is so important for calming baby and preventing flailing arms. The Woombie has been shown to promote a more natural and peaceful sleep environment for infants resulting in longer periods of sleep with less restlessness- which is why Infant Care Experts recommend the Woombie to institute successful sleep patterns from birth to 6 months. The Woombie prevents issues such as startling, face scratching, overheating and dangerous loose unraveled blankets from covering baby’s face.
We were sent a “Key Lime Original Woombie Swaddle” in the Newborn size (fits babies weighing 5-13 lbs.) for Jacob to try out. The Woombie is made of a stretchy cotton/spandex blend so Jacob was able to still move his arms and legs around slightly, but yet still stay swaddled. The fabric is also very soft! As I said, the Woombie is also the easiest way to swaddle a baby, since you just have to zip it up! No tricky folds or wrapping. Seeing him in the Woombie, I can honestly see why babies like it! It certainly looks womb-like! Jacob has been a much fussier baby than his sister was, but we have found that swaddling him really seems to make him calm down.
Swaddling babies is a great way to prevent them from waking up due to the Moro reflex–otherwise known as the startle reflex. If you’ve ever layed a newborn baby down on their back after they’ve fallen asleep, most likely you’ve witnessed this happening. If a baby is swaddled in the Woombie, they are much less likely to be awakened by this!
I think that all new parents would agree that any product that helps their children sleep longer and more soundly is a must-have, and the Woombie is one of those things! Whether you’re a new (or soon to be) parent looking for something to help your child sleep better, or you’re looking for a great baby shower gift, consider buying the Woombie!
