My favorite parenting book is The Happiest Baby on the Block by Dr. Harvey Karp. His methods are extremely simple and absolutely work! His theory is that by creating a comfortable environment similar to the womb will allow a baby to happily sleep more. It is easy to follow Dr. Karp’s Five S’s — swaddling, side, stomach positioning, shushing, swinging, and sucking. Each “S” triggers natural calming reflexes to soothe the baby. Today, I recommend The Woombie Swaddler to help swaddle infants and newborns.
Swaddling is an excellent way to prepare newborns for a good night’s sleep. Dr. Karp cites a study that found that the younger babies went to sleep more quickly after being swaddled. The study also showed that babies who are swaddled, or wrapped tightly in cloth before being put down to sleep, were more likely to sleep on their backs — a position that is now suggested by most pediatricians for prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The Woombie Swaddler was designed by a RN and Certified Infant Care Specialist, providing a safe and comfortable swaddle for babies. Gently hugging the shoulders and tummy, the Woombie allows for natural movement of the arms, legs and hips with our signature bebeflex® fabric and sleepINNOVATION® system- softly cocooning baby without restricting motion or mobility.
The Woombie Swaddler has been shown to promote a more natural and peaceful sleep environment for infants resulting in longer periods of sleep with less restlessness. The Woombie prevents issues such as startling, face scratching, overheating and loose unraveled blankets from covering baby’s face. Infant Care Experts recommend the Woombie products to institute successful sleep patterns from birth to 6 months. You can purchase your own The Woombie Swaddler by clicking the links above or below.
