We all know the importance of swaddling babies, but what happens when your baby is hospitalized and attached to all those medical cords and tubes? How can you provide them with a safe and secure feeling using a swaddle without hindering their medical support? Look no further, because Woombie Med pods are here to save the day.
Guest Bloggers, Karen Barski and Chelsea Vail
Woombie Med Pods are the first, and only, 360-degree swaddles designed specifically for hospitalized preemies and infants that work around treatment needs and medical devices. Created by a Certified Child Life Specialist and a nurse, Woombie Med Pods were designed with the baby, the parents, and the medical staff in mind!
Patients born prematurely, or full term babies up to thirteen pounds can benefit developmentally from using a Woombie Med Pod while inpatient. We have a pod for bili babies that allows full luminosity of phototherapy lights. We have the Woombie Gastro Pod featuring a midsection flap that allows easy access to g-button, colostomy bag, or umbilical site, and we have our Woombie Trach Pod for babies with trachs, ports, broviacs, or post cardiac surgery.
All of our pods feature a patented peanut shape to allow a range of motion in shoulders and hips and a four-way stretch fabric that promotes flexion while still cocooning baby in a womb like an environment. The double zipper allows quick access to the patient’s upper or lower body for medical procedures or diaper changes and prevents hyperstimulation from wrapping/unwrapping.
Woombie Med Pods support Family Centered Care Initiative, healthy sleep and can be single patient or multi patient use. These can be purchased at WoombieMedPods.com or by calling 1-833-MED-PODS.
Mompreneurs, Chelsea Vail and Karen Barski are also available via email to help you secure an order with an electronic order form if you prefer. firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Be sure to follow Woombie Med Pods on Facebook and Instagram.
