The Organic Woombie

I am a grandmother who owns 2 websites. My first website was born because I am the grandmother of 2 preemies. The first was a little girl who was born at just 26 weeks and weighted just 1 lb 15 oz. As my inspiration, AvaBaby's was born. Preemies are very fragile, they have so much to contend with, let alone any harmful chemicals. So I look for organic products whenever I can to offer to our families.

Being that I am interested in doing my part to make our home greener, my next website was a natural next step where I specialize in organic, natural and sustainable clothing and accessories for babies 1st year. Enter, EcoBaby Chic Organics.

Recently I came across this really ingenious product that is just perfect for preemies, even those who arrived full term would benefit without a doubt. Newborns have a immature nervous system, and are prone to waking themselves up due to their own startle reflex. Add to that the fact that they have just spent the last several months in a cozy environment, where they were gently, but securely confined.  Now if you are talking a preemie, all of that is magnified by their prematurity.

Needless to say when I found the Woombie, I thought this is a fantastic idea!!  Even better that it comes in an organic as well! Simply put, the Woombie mimics the womb. It is made of a very soft stretchy fabric that will gently secure your little ones arms and legs, but still give them freedom to move about a bit. No more flailing arms due to the startle reflex. Less startling means more peaceful and longer sleeping periods which equates to, much more rest for mom & dad. 

They are easy to get baby into with just a zipper and a snap at the top. 

The reviews are outstanding and the Woombie has won numerous awards. Would love to hear how the Woombie has worked for you.

I love the Woombie! I bought one two years ago when my daughter was 3 months old (before they had organics) and it solved my infant's sleeping problems instantly! :) How ironic that my website name is Eco-Babyz! Great review, we're planning on number two, so I would love to get an organic Woombie this time around.

Great review, Rebecca! I wonder if there's any harm of a baby rolling over and hurting themselves, though. I do like the idea, I'd just be concerned about that. Thanks for sharing :)

We used the Woombie and didn't have issues with rolling over, but I assume some babies might. That's where a, infant sleep positioner comes in handy.
