Happy New Year everyone! New year, new lives entering the world each day, new families created...
Karen and I would like to challenge you and your staff to try something new this year with the newborns you care for. Many studies support swaddling as a means of decreasing infant stress, promoting healthier sleep, and improving overall development during the fourth trimester (first three months of life); however, swaddling with blankets pose risks for a variety of reasons.
1. Blankets can come loose and become a SIDS risk
2. Swaddling too tightly in a blanket can lead to restricted movement in shoulders and hips
3. Swaddling a chronically ill or hospitalized infant is difficult around medical devices
Woombie Med Pods uses the fully patented original peanut shaped Woombie that allows full range of motion in hips and shoulders. It's even been recognized by the Hip Dysplasia Institute!
Our products are made with a four-way stretch fabric that cocoon the infant similar to the womb and promote flexion when in use, while maintaining shape.
The Woombie has sold over a million swaddles and never had a safety recall! Caregivers report longer, deeper sleep in a Woombie!
Barski Vail Designs, LLC revised the original Woombie to meet the specific needs of various patient populations and work around treatment needs to make caregiving easier on home health or while hospitalized.
Review all four designs and uses on WoombieMedPods.com and order directly or request an order form from firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you and working with you!
