Bathe-Swaddle-Sleep: Original TummyTub® & The Woombie® Provide Peaceful Rest Solution For Infants
TummyTub and Woombie Join Forces to Reinvent the Bedtime Routine. Both products mimic the womb and allow babies to completely relax and move within soft boundaries. The result is long lasting peaceful sleep!
Thankfully, the Original TummyTub® and the Woombie offer frustrated and tired parents a revolutionary way to calm baby into a peaceful sleep. These natural, nurturing products work together to create a safe and effective bathe-swaddle-
The Moro or “startle” reflex is completely normal, but can cause discomfort in young infants by waking them up easily and not allowing them to relax. Therefore, pediatricians agree that mimicking the environment of the womb eases the transition from birth and alleviates this stress. The TummyTub allows babies to be bathed in the comfortable fetal position, while giving the ability to move freely within safe boundaries. This provides a greater sense of security and provides soothing relaxation instead of startling. Many babies even fall asleep while in their TummyTub! After the bath, the Woombie is the perfect transition to a peaceful night’s rest. Unlike other swaddling products, the Woombie is the most natural way to wrap your baby because it softly confines the arms and gently compresses baby’s unique curves to hug baby. The stretchable fabric allows the baby to flex his extremities as needed just like in the womb. This gentle confinement prevents the startle reflex, while allowing babies to be comfortable and not tightly swaddled.
Newborns often have difficulty in maintaining a consistent body temperature and they get cold easily. The TummyTub is the first bath tub that allows a baby to be surrounded by warm water. Due to the small surface space, the water also stays warmer for longer. The high walls of the tub keep warmth in around baby’s head and prevent chilling. A quick transition from the bath to drying and changing into the Woombie also keeps baby’s temperature steady. The Woombie is a lightweight, breathable cotton that will not allow baby to get overheated while sleeping.
Colic, indigestion, and nighttime fussiness add to bedtime drama in many households with infants. It is true that an uncomfortable, fussy bath time prolongs the falling asleep process, which is no fun for parent or child. The TummyTub takes a baby from crying to calm in seconds! Covered in warm water in the familiar fetal position, babies are relieved of pain and able to completely relax and de-stress. Used in combination with massage it helps stimulate proper digestion and eliminates gas. The Woombie picks up where TummyTub left off with reinforcing the natural fetal position, quickly regaining a comfortable body temperature, and allowing for healthy movement and proper motor development. In the Woombie, babies sleep an average of 12-18 hours a day or more! A marked improvement in colic symptoms is also noted by Woombie users.
