Woombie Swaddler Review

Isn't this adorable? :)

I have a newborn at home and sleep is THE.MOST.IMPORTANT.THING.EVER right now!!  If mama doesn't sleep, then mama isn't happy and if mama isn't happy ... then nobody is happy!  I have searched high and low for the best swaddler for baby Long #2 (aka Jackson).  We always used The Miracle Blanket at night with Sophia, but I never used a swaddler during the day for naps.  (Please note: big mistake, big mistake!)  I knew with our second child, I wanted to be swaddling for all types of sleep, regardless of the time of day.  I had a friend highly recommend the Woombie, but I couldn't imagine it would be much better than my gold standard of the Miracle Blanket.  The Woombie is much easier to use than The Miracle Blanket.  You just put the baby in the peanut-shapped swaddler and zip it up.  It even has two zippers so you don't have to unzip the neck line if you want to do a diaper change ... just zip up from the bottom to take the legs out!  It is seriously SO easy to get the baby in and out ... probably THE EASIEST of all swaddlers I have ever seen and/or used!!  

Honestly, it is even good to use for Jackson if he is worked up and needs to relax.  I just put him in the Woombie and it has an amazing soothing effect.  The tears dry up and he becomes Mr. Chilled-Out!  He must feel like he is back in my warm and cozy womb!!!  

Here is a little excerpt from the website:   

The Woombie is the safest & most NATURAL way to Swaddle your baby, encouraging baby to softly stretch extremities as needed, just like in the womb. The Woombie comforts, softly confines arms & gently compresses baby's unique curves to hug baby... preventing Startling issues, face scratching, overheating and also preventing dangerous loose unraveled blankets from covering baby's face.

  • Soft, ECO cotton fabric gently hugs baby
  • Baby feels secure, not confined, easing transition from WOMB to World!
  • Follows Pediatrician & S.I.D.S. guidelines
  • Maintains airflow and will not overheat baby
  • No loose blankets covering airways
  • Prevents face scratching
  • Prevents unnecessary waking due to the Startle Reflex
  • Soothes babies with colic
  • Will not come undone
  • Promotes natural motor development
  • Easy to use, just zip it up

Here is a picture of my little guy in one of the Woombie's a friend recently let us borrow ...

It blends in nicely with the Moses Basket Bassinet, huh? 

The lovely ladies over at Woombie sent me a Cocoa Puff X-Long Newborn Woombie for my sweet Jackson!  It arrived the day we came home from the hospital!  Ahh ... the gift of sleep that fits in the palm of my hands and in my mailbox!  Ha!  Ha!  Ha!  The XL buys me extra length while keeping the same snugness.  (is that even a word? ha!)

Here is my little, big guy in his crib ... My cocoa puff Woombie has become my go-to nap time swaddler!   He sleeps so soundly with his arms up near his chest!!  He can't startle himself with his extremities because they are cozy and tight in his Woombie.

What a cute little peanut, huh? 

Please head over to the Woombie website and check it out.  You can buy the Original Woombie for only $26.99!  It is a small price to pay for hours more of sleep!  Believe me, it is tried and true ... I am a living testimony that you will get more sleep with a baby swaddled during the day for naps in this amazing swaddler!  

You can use the "Find a Store" locator to see the closest Woombie retailer near you!

They also have a cool product called the Woombie Donut!  I would SURE love to get my hands on one of these for next summer/fall and our tent camping adventures!!   Doesn't it look heavenly?   Sure wouldn't mind having the Woombie Toddler Donut for Sophia!  She would just think she was the cat's meow with this product!!  

Do you have a favorite swaddler?  If so, what is it and why do you like it so?
