The Ollie Swaddle
I received this product compliments of The Ollie World. All opinions and text are my own.
I remember in the hospital the nurses bringing back a perfectly swaddled baby after a bath or hearing test. She was always wrapped so neatly and I couldn't understand how they did it. I'll admit that I am the worst when it comes to swaddling a baby. That, or my babies are just little Houdini's who have mastered the art of escape! Seriously though... it'll start with a hand, then an arm, and before you know it the swaddle is completely undone! That is, until I received The Ollie Swaddle!
The Ollie Swaddle has been a total game changer for me, and I can't stress that enough! It is so simple to swaddle my baby now! I literally lay it flat, pull the right side over and tuck, then velcro the left side across her body, and loop the bottom. I can even do it in the dark and I get a perfect swaddle every time!
The Ollie Swaddle also makes diaper changes so much easier! Before, I had to completely undo the blanket which woke the baby up. Then, after changing her, I'd spend another 10-15 minutes trying to re-swaddle and get her back to sleep. Now, I can completely change her while she's still in the swaddle which makes it so convenient.
The best part is that I know she's safe away from loose blankets that could end up over her face. During the newborn stage especially, I find myself constantly waking up to check on her. I can't tell you how many times I found my first two escape artists with a blanket near or over their head and that scared me so much! I am so relieved when I check on her and find that she's nicely tucked in just the way I left her.
The material is so comfortable and doesn't over heat her while she sleeps. This is my first summer baby and overheating was a huge concern of mine. With the moisture wicking material, I don't have to worry about that. It's designed to pull or "wick" the moisture from the skin, keeping her cool.
As soon as I wrap her up, it calms her into a deep sleep which equals more sleep for me! It prevents her from startling herself awake like most newborns do. This is definitely on my list of must have baby products! If you want to try it out, use my link and get 10% off HERE!
