Enough with the excuses! I'm back!
So, last month I had the joy of attending MommyCon in Newport Beach where there were some great vendors in which I bought products from.
One of these products were from the company The Ollie World.
I seriously wish that I had known about this company while baby Li'el was much smaller, but oh well, it was still worth it!
Today I bring up swaddling because I am still reaping the benefits of swaddling, or should I say WE?
If you're like me, every time my son's awesome (and handsome might I add)pediatrician would mention swaddling, I would totally disregard it... in my head.
Many mothers struggle with waking babies throughout the night,
And as a single mother or momma that is doing the majority of the work around the house, you are longing and dreaming of the thought, "If only I had one night."
But I am here to tell you, swaddle.
Swaddling reminds them of their womb experience, helps to reduce arousal and reduces my son from being startled from loud, sudden noises.
Some nights are better than others, but what I particularly like about this Ollie Swaddle is that the insides are incredibly soft and the material wicks away moisture from a sweaty baby.
Let me tell you, my son use to SWEAT his little butt off in cotton fabrics, but not anymore. I also really enjoy using this swaddle because the material is very stretchy and flexible, and I feel comfortable that he appears way more comfortable than the average swaddle.
Since Baby Li'el is (sadly) approaching 7 months, and rolls onto his tummy when he wakes, I generally leave his arms out, but I also tend to wrap at least one arm in depending on his needs to be detained while being a fussy butt. Another note is that we co-sleep, so this also reduces his fussiness and I am also able to monitor him, even while being sleep.
Practice your God-given super mommy powers!
Overall, I feel that this swaddle has been worth the buy, even at 6 months,
And they are also having some great sales right NOW!
