E is my third baby and I still haven’t perfected my swaddle wrapping technique. Unless you are continuously wrapping babies, you tend to forget once you have your next child.

First off the packaging is incredibly sweet and I can see it being a cute way to box up photos to give to your child in the future. The material is soft and feels light and has a lot of breathability. It’s made from custom moisture-wicking material so this reduces the risk of overheating for your little babe. E didn’t seem to mind just laying on it but as you can see she was giving me a look to hurry up and wrap her up in it!
When using it the first time I used the How To Use page on the Ollie World website to help guide me.
The velcro allows this to grow with baby which I feel is a big plus. I can definitely see why it’s known as the Smarter Swaddle™. The swaddles I’ve previously used only last past a certain growth month and I would then have to purchase another one to fit my baby. This is pretty much a “one size fits all” kind of product. It also reduces that tendency of having to re-do a swaddle. If you’re like me, your swaddle skills can’t be outmatched by a squirmy baby. If E had to resettle herself, or was startled by her big brothers playing, it didn’t undo the swaddle.
There is also an opening at the bottom to help with diaper changes. You don’t have to worry about undoing the velcro or waking up your baby from that sound. The elastic tie would just need to be undone.
The Ollie World swaddles come in three different colors to choose from. This lavender one is perfect since I gravitated towards purples and pink tones for E. The other colors are just as gorgeous as the lavender one.
Our verdict? A definitely must have baby gear item. It didn’t matter where E was, as long as she was wrapped in this, she was comfy and calm swaddled up in this Ollie World swaddle!
