Baby Mwah enjoys being swaddled. I received one of those popular SwaddleMe blankets from Kiddopotamus at my baby shower. It worked great for the first week or so until Baby Mwah was able to rip open the velcro on the SwaddleMe with a simple stretch and startle himself awake.
Luckily, I’d received a sample of a new, mom-invented swaddler called the Woombie. While my husband and I had a good laugh about how goofy Baby Mwah (pictured above) looks in the Woombie, we can’t argue with results. The Woombie, a soft cocoon sack made of stretchy fabric, didn’t open, unravel or loosen during the night. Diaper changes were simple since the Woombie is opened and closed with just one zipper. While using the Woombie, Baby Mwah was able to stretch his arms and legs naturally without startling himself and waking up.
My only complaint about the Woombie is that Baby Mwah (who was born weighing close to 10 pounds) will outgrow it too quickly since the Woombie only fits babies up to 14 pounds. But I read on www.thewoombie.com that, due to popular demand, the Woombie will soon be offered for babies up to 20 pounds!
