Swaddling or the practice of wrapping babies in snug blankets has proven to be very useful regarding providing extra safety and comfort. Numerous research and studies have revealed that swaddled babies are calmer and sleep longer. This is because swaddling mimics the comfortable womb-like environment that makes them feel more safe and secure. It’s also noted that swaddling effectively reduces colic instances and the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).
Upon learning about the benefits of swaddling, I continuously researched the topic and had made myself familiar with what seasoned moms think of swaddling. After consistently sharing about our pregnancy journey across social media, The Ollie World gifted our family with one of their products to check, test and try. While our little one isn’t here yet, both my hubby and I are still quite excited to see the features of this swaddle.
The Ollie Swaddle – Sky is designed with the baby’s safety and comfort in mind. It is built with moisture-wicking fabric that can reduce the risk of overheating and SIDS. It’s very soft and quite elastic which is great as it allows freedom of movement without the risk of the baby getting out of the swaddle completely.
It has a good strong Velcro that allows fit to be individualized to meet the size and need of the baby. It also allows the swaddle to grow along with your precious bundle of joy, so there’s no need to buy another swaddle as the baby grows larger or taller. What makes this swaddle even more unique is that it has an opening at the bottom for a diaper change. This completely eliminates the need to completely remove the swaddle whenever it is time to replace our little one’s diaper. Fantastic right?
The Ollie World Swaddle is very straightforward to use too. As a soon-to-be-mom who has no prior experience in swaddling, I am confident that I can do the “swaddle wrap” with ease. There is no complicated arm restraints, steps or instructions. To top it all, it also comes with its own laundry bag too. So parents don’t have to worry about the Velcro sticking with the rest of the laundry.
I am really excited to put The Ollie Swaddle to work very soon. I am truly looking forward to providing our little miracle that safe and comfortable feeling, just like how he feels inside my womb right now.
