My daughter was swaddled from the day she was born until about 7 months old or so. While sleeping in her pack n play, her arms would inevitably make it up to her face and wake her up if she wasn’t being swaddled. My husband and I would never have gotten sleep without the Ollie Swaddle.
I received the Ollie Swaddle as a baby shower gift from my sisters-in-law and then from Ollie Swaddle, and I’ll admit I had heard of it, but I didn’t know exactly what it was. I hadn’t really researched it much. After receiving the Ollie Swaddle and trying it out at the hospital with my newborn baby, I was really impressed! It kept her calm and happy, which made me very happy since my husband was sick with Strep and couldn’t be at the hospital much with me. A. stayed so calm that I actually kept her in my hospital room for the next 2 days and she didn’t stay overnight at the nursery.
What I love about the Ollie Swaddle is that it is stretchy, soft, and has velcro closures on it. It also helps with the startle reflex in babies because it helps contain the baby’s arms and legs. The older that my daughter has gotten, the more she likes to wiggle in her sleep. I’ve tried using other swaddles but she’s like Houdini and wiggles her arms or hands right out! The Ollie Swaddle has helped her keep her arms to her side and not wake herself up.
Another thing that I like about the Ollie Swaddle is that you can use it to transition a baby out of the swaddle by leaving their arms out. There is a stretchy loop that you can use to close the swaddle at the bottom (almost like a tail) and it keeps your child’s feet warm. 🙂 It’s definitely my favorite swaddle and I would highly recommend it! It was a life saver with my baby!
