Review and Giveaway- Woombie Swaddle!!


The Woombie Swaddle has been a flat-out miracle worker in our household! At about 4 months old Jackson started breaking out of his swaddles. I would listen to the "riiip, riiip" sound that would emanate from his bedroom and gird myself for the inevitable squeals that would soon follow. Jackson is a baby that must be swaddled. Even at SIX MONTHS OLD. That's where the woombie comes in. While scouring the internet for a suitable replacement for the subpar velcro swaddles we had been using I ran across the Woombie. Like a mirage in the desert, it appeared out of nowhere and my heart swelled with hope. Could this be the answer to my sleep-through-the-night prayers? I submitted my order lickety-split and waited on pins and needles for it to arrive. When it finally got here (damn Fedex!) I tore into and immediately tried it out that night. It was my first night of fours-hours-of-sleep in a row since the stupid velcro swaddle stopped working. Ahhh, bliss. Not only did the Woombie work but it still works. If I had known about this product when I was pregnant with Jackson I would have ordered one in every size. Instead, I count myself lucky that I found it and make sure to tell all of my pregnant friends about it! Here's a picture of how it works:


Here are some facts from the Woombie website.
