When Woombie Med Pods hit the scene, we heard from medical professionals and parents how much they loved Woombie swaddles. They were curious to learn about Med Pods because of the Woombie brand. The basis of our medical swaddle is the patented peanut-shaped Woombie, which has sold over a million and proven its success in the infant world for over ten years.
Woombie is unlike anything else!
The peanut shape allows for movement in the hips and shoulders. A blanket or other swaddle that requires arms down for security restricts movement in these areas and can lead to tight shoulders and hips.
The double zipper allows for easy, efficient diaper changes without disturbing baby or unswaddling.
The unique four-way stretch fabric allows the infant to move within the swaddle while still providing boundaries and containment, something an infant needs in order to feel safe and secure.
Woombie Med Pods was born to create a way for preemies and hospitalized infants to benefit from this unique swaddle the way infants at home have been for over a decade. Blankets and other swaddles just don't do what a Woombie does!
Woombie Med Pods allow hospitalized infants and preemies to be swaddled the same as an infant at home because they work WITH treatment and work AROUND medical devices.
"We can't swaddle her because of the colostomy bag"....the Woombie Gastro Pod features a midsection flap that allows access to the bag or g-button.
"We can't swaddle because this preemie has so many monitors and central lines"...The Woombie Med Pod has custom slits at top and sides for lines and leads.
"We can't swaddle him because he needs phototherapy for bili levels"...the Woombie Bili Pod allow full luminosity during treatment.
"We never swaddle our trach babies"...the Woombie Trach Pod features a deep v-neck so this population can be swaddled without restricting access to trach for suction or ventilation.
We've thought of it all! We've covered our bases! Woombie Med Pods were created by Karen Barski (a nurse) and Chelsea Vail (a Child Life Specialist), both mothers and newborn care educators who know infants MUST be swaddled during the first three months of life for healthy development and psychosocial care.
