Our Story

As a parent, we all know how difficult the transition from birth to 6 months can be...sleepless nights, confusion, just not knowing.....feeling overwhelmed, trouble feeding baby, Colic issues and of course---the wonderful hormonal shifts that make us laugh, cry and scream all at the same time.
Most parents are taught about the comfort and benefits that are achieved from Swaddling, which has been practiced for hundreds of years. What we don't know from the get-go is what a pain in the butt it can be. Wrapping baby. Rewrapping baby. Wrapping baby. Rewrapping baby....and so on. On and on and on it goes, all night long. My little Bella was a strong baby, with a strong startle reflex and a hunger like you would not believe. She came 5 weeks early - looking for food as soon as she made eye contact with me, the "mommy cow." She wanted to sleep at night, and boy did Stash and I want that too...but due to her super startle paired with mighty-mouse strength, she unraveled herself within 15 minutes...ALL NIGHT LONG. After unraveling herself, her Rooting reflex initiated and she then brought her swaddle wrap right up over her face and mouth, trying to eat it. Time and time again, I found her red and sweaty with the swaddle wrap up and over her face. Scary....Not good for the air flow to say the least. I tried every baby swaddle available, every name brand in every major store...and nothing worked for her. What frustration....
Even as a seasoned parent, there are still new issues arising, as every baby is so unique. We needed to keep our daughter Bella safe and comfortable. Getting up every 2 hours during the night can be draining for not only mom, but everyone in the house - both emotionally and physically. Every bit of help is a gift and a savior! As a RN and mother, I sought after different products that would work for the baby and myself on a few different levels. First, to swaddle the baby for her safety and comfort, to both prevent her from scratching herself and also prevent startle reflex. It needed to be comfortable and to stay put! Velcro almost always detaches as baby stretches during the night, and blankets unravel and may overheat baby, or end up over the baby's face contributing to SIDS. I needed something that would stay intact and snug, but at the same time, allow the baby to stretch out if she needed to, where the fabric would then automatically reconform to a snug cocoon-like or peanut shape afterwards. After searching every store and website for a swaddle product that would "stay put", on went my creative hat. I sewed and sewed until Bella was "contained" with a gentleness. No "arms pinned to the side swaddle", a stretchy but effective peanut, which was ergonomical to her shoulder, waist and hip curves. It did help that I was an RN with some understanding of body mechanics and essential movement.

Our first prototype
After a month of prototyping, the WOOMbie was born. After further testing and research, our product was launched nationally December of 2007, and Worldwide in late 2008.
Parents love The WOOMbie because of its easy IN/OUT design, stay put zipper which will not open or unravel and its unique 4 way stretch material. In a nut-shell, the WOOMbie helps to maintain the comfort levels of both baby and parent, easing undue stress and promoting a more peaceful environment, which is greatly, greatly needed and appreciated during the first few months of life during transition from the womb. Needless to say, I wish I had the WOOMbie with my 2 daughters before Bella. It has helped me, my husband Stash and our babies Bella, Bryce and Brody tremendouslly! So many new parents and babies are achieving a smoother transition from womb to 6 months after using the WOOMbie. Read our testimonials, you will be amazed!

The Woombie is a safe & natural way to swaddle your baby, allowing and encouraging baby to softly stretch their extremities as needed- just like in the womb. It comforts, softly confines arms, hugs the tummy (great for colic) and gently cocoons baby's unique curves... preventing Startling issues, face scratching, overheating and also preventing dangerous loose unraveled blankets from covering baby's face.
The Woombie is a proud winner of the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved), Moms Best and Creative Child Awards. We have been seen on television, in numerous popular baby magazines and are endorsed by Doctors, Doulas, Postpartum Baby Instructors, Nurses and countless moms and dads worldwide. In a nutshell, The Woombie is a great easy swaddle for babies with the Startle Reflex & who are in need of a cozy yet gentle confinement.



                                                             MY REVIEW.
I WAS SUPER EXCITED TO HAVE THE HONOR TO REVIEW A WOOMBIE. I LOVE BEING ABLE TO KNOW THAT MY NEW BABY WILL BE ABLE TO SLEEP SAFELY AND NOT SCRATCH UP HIS FACE. I ALSO LIKE THAT HE WILL FEEL SAFE LIKE HE IS STILL IN THE WOMB AND REST BETTER.I LIKE KNOWING THAT MY BABY WILL BE WARM ENOUGH AND NOT HAVE A LOOSE BLANKET IN HIS BED TO PULL OVER HIS FACE. I LOVE HOW THE WOOMBIE STRETCHES AND HAS 2 ZIPPERS FOR EASY DIAPER CHANGES. HEAD OVER AND CHECK OUT WOOMBIE AND ALL OF THE GREAT PRODUCTS THEY HAVE.
LOOK HOW CUTE THE WOOMBIE DESIGN IS. I LOVE THE LITTLE FACES ON THE O'S. DONT YOU?







DISCLAIMER:I DID RECIEVE A SAMPLE WOOMBIE TO REVIEW. I WASNT CONPENSATED IN ANY OTHER WAY FOR THIS REVIEW. THES EARE ALL MY OWN OPINIONS.

I wish they would have had this when my little one was first born. He loved being wrapped up but he didn't want to be in the fetal position, he wanted to stretch out. This is great. Getting one for my neighbor.
