Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The Woombie Original Nursery swaddling blanket is easy to dress thus perfect for restless babies. It keeps your little one’s arms from their face to ensure a good night sleep. The stretchy fabric moves with the baby giving them the womb-like feeling for their comfort.
There is a reverse zipper so that you can easily change diapers in the middle of the night. It's also a one step design, making it easy to use.
The Woombie has a 2-way zipper that lets you unzip from both sides. You can unzip from the top when you’re ready to put your baby into the stretchy, swaddle pod.
Seamless interior for maximum comfort
The number one best thing about the Woombie is that its form-fitting design is built to hold your baby in place without any additional straps, wings, clips, or other hoopla. Note while this is great for getting kids in quickly, with Calvin it resulted in him wriggling the Woombie’s material up around his face.
This swaddle leaves a baby free to move their limbs and keep their hands closer to their face than with other swaddles.

What reviewers didn't like

The stretchy fabric makes it less suitable for some babies
Swaddle-resistant babies may force hands through neckline and escape
The biggest problems we had with the Woombie Air was one that I’ve worried about a lot with both traditional swaddling and sleep sacks. It seems like a lot of fabric rides up around Calvin’s neck and shoulders, increasing the risk that cloth might cover his mouth while he sleeps. This is pretty serious SIDS concern.
It doesn’t have armholes.
