It’s not just a cliche that new moms are in dire need of sleep. Some babies just don’t realize when it’s nighttime and others have trouble staying asleep once you do finally convince them to close their eyes. Thankfully, we found 2 must-haves for newborns that are a total game changer.
The Ollie Swaddle
Every mom needs an Ollie Swaddle. This thing is like magic and a little piece of heaven all wrapped into one. It’s common knowledge that most babies do well being swaddled. It can help them sleep longer by keeping them wrapped up so their little arms flailing out to the sides don’t wake them up. Swaddling also helps to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
What sets this swaddle apart from the crowd and a head above the rest is their revolutionary design. Not only is the Ollie Swaddle made with supersoft, moisture-wicking fabric to reduce the risk of overheating, but it’s one-size design lets you continue to use it as your baby grows. Velcro lets you easily adjust the fit so it can fit babies of all shapes and sizes, including those that are cloth diapered. Another thing that makes the Ollie Swaddle vastly different from all other swaddles is the unique ability to change the baby’s diaper through an access point at the bottom of the swaddle so you don’t have to wake the baby up or completely re-swaddle them at every diaper change.
The Ollie Swaddle is so well loved that they have trouble keeping these puppies in stock! They are currently sold out and will re-stock in a couple weeks. Be sure you visit their website www.theollieworld.com and snatch one as soon as they come back in stock. These also make an excellent (and affordable) baby shower gift! Ollie Swaddles retail for $59 and come in 3 colors.

This is the next best thing to baby being in the womb. Swaddle your baby in the Ollie Swaddle and lay them down in a DockATot for the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had with a newborn.
We’ve been using our DockATot for 6 weeks now and we’re in love. As a mom of 4, I only wish I had this with my last 3 kids. It’s definitely a game changer. The handle makes it easy to move around the house so I can place baby down wherever I need to. With previous children, I used to attempt to create the DockATot style sleeping area for my baby with small pillows and blankets, but it couldn’t be moved around and certainly didn’t look as good. As soon as I saw the DockATot, I knew it was everything I always wanted and needed. Using it daily for the last 6 weeks has only proven that.
This truly is a must-have for every mom and an essential baby gear item to put on your baby registry. Want to make someone love you forever? Buy them a DockATot for their new baby.
This is hands-down THE hottest baby shower gift for 2017!
