Woombie

We got a woombie tonight because DS has now been able to punch out of muslin swaddles and the SwaddleMe swaddles. Anyone else use these? Opinions?

Re: Woombie

  • not sure what you are looking for...we have two and love them. they fit tight so it is a little odd to get use to at first. we like that you can unzip at the bottom so their feet can be free and just like us keeping our feet out of the covers, keep him overall cooler. does that make sense?

  • we LOVE our woombie!  We only use it for bedtime and never attempted a blanket swaddle aside from in the hospital. We have never had a problem with ours.  I think LO likes the secure feeling but also is able to move his arms up and down if he wants.  It fits tight, but not constricting.  Our woombie even has the swaddle wrap around the torso and it works really well.

    FWIW-I wasted $15 on the Summer Infant swaddle pods which claim to be equivalent to the woombie and they ARE NOT.  LO was able to fit his hands and forearms out the neck hole where they got stuck up near his face.  Not very safe I don't think.  The neck was not tight/secure enough.  The woombie is definitely worth the money IMO.

    Hope the woombie works for you!

  • DS has been stretching so much once he's out of the swaddle and is growing incredibly fast. He grew 2 inches in 4 weeks! So I just wonder how much longer he'll tolerate being swaddled. I've had to start undoing the swaddle in the middle of his naps coz he fusses lots while sleeping

  • Hmm, well that I'm not sure about.  Our LO is growing too, but was really small to begin with, so I think we still have some time with the woombie.  I do think they have different sizes on their website, so hopefully he doesn't grow out of the one you just bought, but there are bigger sizes/styles for when he's bigger and rolling, etc.

  • We have one, but she hasn't sized into it yet.  I'm excited to try it, because she loves to be swaddled and the Woombie looks infinitely easier to use than, say, the miracle blanket.
    The word you're looking for is SEX.  I promise.  No, it's not gender.  It's sex.  You're welcome.
