The Ollie Swaddle Makes Swaddling a Breeze

Buddy loved to be swaddled until he was about five months old and began rolling over at night. It was a lifesaver in those early days! With baby girl we've being using the same technique to help her sleep soundly in her co-sleeper. Instead of messing with a large blanket to swaddle, now there are neat swaddling products like the Ollie Swaddle that make swaddling easier than ever.

The Ollie Swaddle was created to help an infant named Oliver thrive when other swaddles failed to help. The comfortable compression of the stretchy, lightweight jersey material of the Ollie Swaddle provide an ideal environment for the restful sleep new parents desire to help their infant achieve.

I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

Swaddling your infant has many benefits including longer, restful sleep. Considering your baby spent her last few months pretty snug in the womb, swaddling is naturally an optimal solution to help transition them during the "fourth trimester" especially. 
How easy is this swaddle to use? VERY easy. Simply wrap the right side of the swaddle over your baby and bring the left over and fasten with velcro. The design creates a custom fit every time. Once baby begins to roll, she can be swaddled with the Ollie Swaddle from the waist down. The velcro is also easy to attach and unattach quickly when needed. The end of the swaddle has an elastic loop to close off the swaddle if desired.

The Ollie Swaddle is ideal for many reasons, but also because it doesn't restrict your baby entirely. It's important to allow babies' hips to move, and not to swaddle your baby with straight legs. Just restricting the arms and providing a firm hug around your baby's body and arms is the magic equation for most babies.

The top of the Ollie Swaddle isn't constricting at the neckline either. It only firmly hugs starting just below the shoulders. At the same time she is fully covered, warm, and not in danger of wriggling the material up over her face.

Typically when I swaddle baby girl she is already sleeping, or nearly asleep after nursing. I've made it a point to only swaddle at night and when our room is dark, so she can start picking up on those ques that it's nighttime. I shot these photos during the day though, and she was shockingly content and happy laying in her Ollie Swaddle while totally awake!

Another bonus of the Ollie Swaddle is that it's customizable fit requires just one swaddle as your baby grows. Many swaddles on the market are sized so multiple swaddles need to be purchased. The Ollie Swaddle is really the only swaddle you need.

The Ollie Swaddle is a wonderful baby shower gift for a new mom and comes in pink or blue. You can purchase yours at TheOllieWorld.com. Also be sure to connect on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Your Baby is so cute, and adorable in the Ollie Swaddle. My niece would look so cute in this blanket, and it would keep her warm and it would not fall off of her! What a great color and idea for a product.
