The Ollie Swaddle Product Review

I was jumping up and down excited to be asked to review a new product - The Ollie Swaddle - in exchange only for an honest review.

I remember the day I held my first newborn child in my arms. After 9 months of pregnancy, 20+ hours of non-medicated labor pains, and post-labor ordeals - There he was! All 7 pound 10 ounces of him. I was on top of the world!

My husband was exhausted and relieved to have a healthy baby and wife. But, he felt helpless. So, when the nurse came in to check the baby, he asked how the whole swaddling blanket idea worked. The nurse began to explain that it makes the baby feel snug and secure. She then proceeded to show my husband the tricks of the trade behind creating a good swaddle out of a hospital blanket. This would be my husband's big job as a new daddy! He was now the chief baby swaddler.

If only, I would have known about this new The Ollie Swaddle back then.

Unlike trying to wrestle with a hospital blanket to create a decent swaddle, The Ollie Swaddle makes it so very easy. Just place the baby on his or her back, centered on the swaddle. Fold the left side over and snuggly tuck it behind the baby. Now, fold the right side over and simply connect with the large Velcro strips. You have the option of wrapping the elastic loop around the bottom opening to tuck in the baby's feet or leaving it open for easy diaper change access. The best part is that you don't have to undo the entire swaddle just to change a diaper.

The feel of the fabric is quality, and the Velcro tabs allow for the baby to grow.

The idea behind The Ollie Swaddle happened when the developer of the product met a newborn named Oliver who was in the foster care system and on the verge of being labeled Failure to Thrive. She knew that this baby needed a way to comfort and learn to calm himself so he could sleep through the night.

The answer was to develop a swaddle that was lightweight breathable, allow for movement and easy to use.

The Ollie Swaddle is made from a moisture wicking material which reduces overheating and ideal of infants 0 to 4 months of age and made to grow with your baby.

The Ollie Swaddle retails for $48 and comes in two beautiful colors of pink or blue stripes. It comes in a beautiful cylindrical gift box with a laundry bag included.

Also, order your own bracelet for $1 that reminds you to "Keep Calm and Swaddle On."
