In the world of baby gear there are a few products that seem to have a cult like following and the Ollie Swaddle is definitely one of those. Take one look at their Instagram account (@theollieworld) full of amazingly cute swaddled babies or read their 5 star reviews and you will see what I mean.
This swaddle was created by a single foster mom in order to ensure a little boy she fell in love with would start to “thrive and flourish”. Under the guidance of her son’s pediatric neuro-developmental psychologist the Ollie Swaddle was created. Swaddling has been around for generations and there are so many different swaddle blankets out there so what makes this one stand out in the crowd? Three reasons:
- Fabric, fabric, fabric! The Ollie Swaddle is made with patented moisture-wicking threads interwoven into the fabric to reduce the risk of overheating. This fabric is lightweight, super soft and has just the right amount of stretch to ensure a perfect fit every time. The Velcro is industrial to make sure that once you get your baby into the perfect little burrito that he is going to stay snug and happily snoozing.
2. It’s super easy to use! To start you simply lay your baby on the Ollie Swaddle, fold the right side over and tuck it in, fold the left side over and attach the Velcro. With the Ollie Swaddle, nighttime diaper changes are made super easy thanks to an opening at the bottom. After attaching the Velcro you will see there is fabric left below his feet and you just need to tie the elastic loop right under your little one’s feet.
3. It is one size and the only size you will need! The Ollie Swaddle can be used for a newborn through the time you are ready to transition your baby out of swaddling. Thanks to the smart design and stretch fabric you are able to get a custom fit each time as you baby grows. The Ollie Swaddle will allow you to swaddle with your baby’s arms in or out to meet their needs.
The Ollie Swaddle retails for $59 and is available here. Many moms promise their babies sleep better and longer using the Ollie Swaddle which makes it worth every penny.
