About the product: The Woombie is a great easy swaddle for babies with the Startle Reflex and who are in need of a cozy yet gentle confinement.The Woombie is the one NATURAL and safe way to Swaddle your baby, mimicking the ability to stretch extremities as in the womb, yet gently comforting and stopping Startling issues and more!!
You can swaddle your baby Safely and Effectively with The Woombie ... designed to ease your mind and comfort your baby so you may both achieve a better nights sleep. Our wraps are made of a unique Cotton Spandex fabric. Below are a few Woombie benefits:
Swaddles baby, preventing startle reflex and overheating
Promotes and enhances motor development by allowing baby to stretch
Prevents face scratching
and keeps "busy" hands away from face and pacifier and overheating
There are no blankets to ride up and cause suffocation
Easy to use ( IN/OUT ) and encourages back sleeping
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, which can interfere with important Motor Skill development and even cause developmental hip dysplasia.
Prevents overheating (which has been linked to SIDS) due to over-wrapping.
Older babies sleep an average 10-12 hours a day if not more. Imagine the loss in important motor development skills they are missing during that HALF of the day!

Original- Medium swaddle, perfect stretch
Original XL- Made 1" Wider for broader/chunkier babies

About the company written by K barski owner of Kb designs which makes the woombie:
As a parent, we all know how difficult for us the transition from birth to 6 months can be... sleepless nights, confusion, not knowing, feeling overwhelmed, trouble feeding, Colic, and of course, the wonderful hormonal shifts we face! Most of us know about the comfort and many different benefits that are achieved from swadddling newborns, which has been done for hundreds of years. The WOOMbie was created after my third daughter was born. I was feeling such frustration with all of the swaddling blankets and contraptions that I bought to help with the new baby. Even as a seasoned parent, there are still new issues, as every baby is so unique.Our situation was not only with comfort...but with safety. After finding Bella with a name-brand swaddling blanket unraveled and over her face, I knew there had to be a better and safer way to swaddle.
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 out for 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 the 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 on 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.
Our first prototype
After months of prototyping, the WOOMbie was born. After further testing and research, our product was launched nationally December of 2007, and Worldwide in early 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 years ago! It has personally helped me, my husband and our baby tremendously! So many new parents and babies are achieving a smoother transition from womb to 3 months after trying the WOOMbie.

My Review: As you know I love innovative products. I also love Mompreneur's. I really think a mom knows how to make a product help other mom's because of their experience. When I found out about the Woombie about a year ago it was instantly one of my must haves. When I saw it I thought "Oh my gosh why didn't anyone think of that before" It's simple, yet genius. At the hospital the nurses swaddle your baby up to keep them warm and secure but with the baby squirming so much and the startle refex, you end up rewrapping them over and over again. The Woombie is a perfect solution to this problem. I am so excited to have a Woombie packed in my diaper bag to bring to the hospital this time. I only wish I had it with my other 3. I am also excited to see if it helps my baby sleep better. I know babies wake themselves up by having the startle reflex and I agree a baby will feel more secure in a woombie like when they were in the woom so the idea is great . I love the 2 zipper design I received with the original woombie. It will make diaper changes easy. You can zip up the bottom while leaving the top still zipped which will make it easy to just take out the babies legs and not have to take the whole thing off. I am also excited to see the new designs coming late in July. I am most interested in the convertible woombie pictured below: It allows you to take your babies arms out or decide to keep them in.
