A Innovative Way to Swaddle a Baby Makes it a Parenting Bestseller

Every parent's top most concern is their baby's safety. Following a child birth one of the first thing nurses do is swaddle. Risks associated with traditional swaddle blankets are hip dysplasia from wrapping too tightly, overheating and unraveling blankets can cover the airway. Karen Barski, concerned with her baby's safety developed the most innovative baby swaddle "wombie" that has become a parenting bestseller.

Eight years ago when Karen Barski's baby girl Bella was faced with a dangerous sleep situation, she searched the market for something "different" than the typical square blanket, and found nothing. Determined to create a safer alternative, she combined her RN skills with creative flair to invent the Woombie, a swaddle that stayed put, was safer and more effective than other methods, and which recreated the womb-like environment that baby had been accustomed to for many months.


In a nutshell, the Woombie is a swaddle that stretches with baby and STAYS PUT! Its zipper prevents unraveling and keeps the swaddle on, helping mom, dad and baby sleep better! Its signature bebeflex fabric allows the perfect stretch for comfort, gentle compression and hip/shoulder movement vs. immobility.

The breathable cotton fabric offers only one layer (vs. 2 layers when wrapping with a square blanket). The multi directional fabric allows baby to move freely in any direction, and quickly retracts to re-cocoon baby after he/she repositions. Its unique venting allows movement of air, helping to prevent overheating. Its stretchy but snug effect offers the baby a sense of "touch" to calm and create the feeling of being "hugged" or "held", which is important in a baby's development.

The Woombie has been shown to promote a more natural and peaceful sleep environment for infants resulting in longer periods of sleep with less restlessness. Infant Care Experts recommend the Woombie products to institute successful sleep patterns from birth to 6 months.

The Woombie is available in several different styles and designs including the Woombie Air, Wrap & Snap, Houdini, Convertible Leggies, Little Stud, Woombie Plus and more.
