"How has noone invented this already?!" says a baffled nurse when being shown the Woombie Bili Pod, swaddle for babies with jaundice being treated with phototherapy and works around lines and leads for preemies and term infants.
"You realize your competition is paper right?" says the product manager of a phototherapy device start-up who was in shock after seeing the Woombie Bili Pod at the AAP conference. The paper swaddle is disposable and falls apart very easily versus the Woombie Bili Pod that swaddles infants 360 degrees in a patented peanut-shape to mimic the womb and allow range of motion in shoulders and hips.
"I have been a neonatologist over twenty-years and I've never seen a swaddle with full luminosity like this one!" said a NICU doctor who tested the luminosity using her phototherapy machine. The Woombie Bili Pod allows full luminosity, contrary to its competitors allowing only 74-85% luminosity.
"The bili pod really did improve the overall hospital experience," reported the mother of a two day old baby boy treated at St. Davids south for hyperbilirubanemia. The baby had developed a rash from the mat cover being used initially, but it cleared within 24 hours of using the Woombie Bili Pod.
"We were thrilled to discover the Woombie Bili Pod swaddles our NAS population," said Harvard educated neonatologist who has been successfully swaddling infants withdrawing from opioid addiction at the childrens hospital.
"The Woombie Bili Pod is genius" says Leslie Brake, RN in south Texas.

Swaddle every baby for comfort, decrease triggrering the moro reflex, and assist with safe sleep. Boundaries prevent the "lost in space" feeling the baby like the one above is experiencing unswaddled.
