The Woombie: Swaddle, Snuggle Sleep Baby Review & Giveaway 4/7 CLOSED WINNEr

CONGRATULATONS TO ...

KATHY PEASE!

Apologies for the delay but had some computer issues. 

Winner was chosen by random.org.

Thanks to all those who entered!


"The Woombie Products....Practical Yet Fabulous! " is a statement that describes Woombie and Parenting Magazine rated it a "Must Have/Buy Now."  If you have a newborn, you know all about swaddling or at least heard about it.  At times it can be difficult to keep a baby swaddled between not fully understanding how to swaddle as there is a correct way coupled with everyone who wants to hold the little darling.  The back and forth passing makes the blanket come undone.  Swaddling also helps to keep the baby asleep as there are no sudden jerks that wakes the baby in alarm.

Using a Woombie is very easy:


What is different about the Woombie is it's a blanket/sleeper in one.  Once you place your baby in it, it provides a soft, stretchy fiber that allows her to move her body yet it keeps them snuggled in.  The material allows the baby to lie naturally in their own comfortable position versus holding them however the swaddle ends up.  Another plus with the Woombie is there is no face scratching!  I love the little mittens you can buy to prevent that but they do come off and some inexperienced parents might be afraid they are on too tight.  The Woombie prevents that along with overheating.  Here are more of the features:
  • No more worry of blankets unraveling which can lead to potential blanket suffocation.
  • No face scratching or Startle Reflex to awaken baby.
  • See a marked improvement in Colic symptoms.
  • Effective swaddling without the need to tightly restrain baby.
  • Prevents overheating due to over-wrapping. (Overheating is linked to SIDS)
  • Great peanut shaped ergonomic design. Hugs the shoulders/arms, waist/abdomen, hips and feet.
  • Babies sleep an average12-18 hours a day or more! Allowing movement is healthy and allows for proper motor development.
To read testimonials from pediatricians, doulas, nurses and moms, click here.

The Woombie also has organic onesies available in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months in pink or natural white.  They are made of organic bamboo and cotton.

Winter Woombies are also avaliable and are made of natural ultra cuddle stretch fleece.  What is nice about the Winter Woombie is it has an optional seatbelt slit for your swing or stroller.  What a great idea!  It even has a pacifier pocket and grosgrain ribbon with a velcro loop so no more dropped or lost pacifiers.  It's available in green apple or karma.

The Review:

I found the cotton to be soft and I was pleased it's rated eco friendly.  The soft, stretchy material does allow movement and in spite of the appearance, the baby is not encassed like a mummy and can move.  It provided a secure wrapping without the worry of having to use blankets that might entangle.  All parents are fearful of SIDS and the Woombie does follow pediatrician and SIDS guidelines which adds a greater sense of security.  I especially liked the convenience of not having to reswaddle, no face scratching and how it did in fact reduce the startle, awake reflex.

I would recommend the Woombie.

Other Information:

Products such as Skidders, footwear for kids on the go, The Mo'Mo Blanket, the Winter Woombie and the Donut are also available.

You can also read the great press Woombie has received and watch a video here.  To order, go here.
Woombies are available in:
  • The Deluxe which is the most popular version for the baby that needs the average swaddle effect.
  • The Organic Woombie has the same effect of the Deluxe but with organic material.
  • The Lil'Houdini is for those tricky babies that can get out of anything.
  • The Winter Woombie is for colder climates and houses in the summer where the husband has to live in an icebox (i.e. too cold!).
  • The Summer is light, airy and ultra stretchy.
  • Coming in June 2010: The Arms Free and Woombie with legs.
Sizes run in Preemie - 3-6 lbs.; Newborn 5-13 lbs.; Big Baby 14-19 lbs.; Mega Baby 20-25 lbs and are available in a variety of colors.

I follow your blog, Woombie on Fb and Twiiter. I would love the Toffee color. I used the Miracle Blanket with my son two years ago and thought it was just okay. Now that I'm expecting my second child, I'm looking for a better alternative and would love to use the Woombie!!!
