Baby, mom, and dad all love our Ollie! We had a couple different brands, but since this guy was 4 weeks we’ve exclusively been using our Ollie swaddles. It is by far the easiest to use and I’m always confident it is secure and will not wiggle up near his face. He is quite a mover but is always content in his Ollie after he’s asleep. He also was a sweaty little guy his first few weeks here and we could wrap him up knowing he wouldn’t get too hot because of the fabric The Ollie is made with. Most importantly this is the only swaddle that fits him correctly at this time. He’s a long baby, 23.75 inches at 2 months, but average weight, 13 lbs, so at about 4 weeks he was too long to be comfortable in the other 0-3 month swaddles we had, but the 3-6 month we’re too wide and wouldn’t hold him in tightly. We are so thankful for the design of the Ollie for this reason! Great work Ollie world team!
We love our Ollie swaddle! Our baby would always break out of other brand swaddles and other swaddles would be too hot for the summer months. The Ollie is made of nice, breathable material and wrapping baby is the swaddle is so easy. The first time we used the Ollie swaddle baby took a 3 hour nap! I would highly recommend the Ollie swaddle to other parents! It really helps our baby settle down and know it’s time to nap/bedtime.
I was so skeptical that a swaddle like this could help my baby sleep any better since I used swaddles with my first and he wasn’t a great sleeper. But when @TakingCaraBabies said it was her favorite and everything else she was telling me to do was helping my little girl sleep, I had to give it a try. I won’t look back! It is wonderful! I sincerely believe it makes my sweet girl feel safe and secure and therefore helps her sleep better!
this swaddle is the most hardcore of them all. Our longest stretches of sleep happened in this swaddle—so now it is my go to for nights.
My son has slept 9+ hours since three weeks old and I swear it’s because of our Ollie swaddle. If he’s ever over tired during the day I’m able to put him in it and he almost instantly calms down.
We initially loved it because baby slept 7 hours straight for the first time on our trip. However, when we returned home to our climate, we had to stop using it. It was simply too hot for our baby, who would get beads of sweat on his head when using the Ollie. Our little guy tends to get hot easily, so if your baby does too, I would be aware that the Ollie swaddle is quite warm. For reference, we keep the house at about 68 degrees and live on the coast (so high humidity). The quality of the swaddle is really nice and it is easy to understand why the price is higher than many other swaddles. It is easy to use as well and is one of the few our escape artist baby could not get out of.
I LOVE this swaddle. This is my fourth baby and I’ve tried everything in the past, except the Ollie, hoping for better sleep. I finally splurged for the Ollie swaddle and it is hands down worth every penny. I ended up buying a second one! My newborn has slept no less than 5 hour stretches, naps in his crib during the day and even pulled off an 8 hour stretch of sleep last night at just 5 weeks old. Thank you Ollie!!
I love how it is a simple model and I love the security of the velcro. My only wish is that it would be made of a different material so as to keep my baby cooler in the hot summer days. We live in California where it gets hot for a few weeks in the year so not enough to have an air conditioning unit. Therefore on those hot days we can't swaddle our baby because he would overheat. I just wish the Ollie had options with lighter material. Besides that we love it!
Our first night home from the hospital we used the “newborn” sized halo sleep sack but my daughter was too small and the fabric was really close to her face and made me worried all night. I got no sleep and my baby slept horribly. I switched the Ollie swaddle and she immediately slept better with a much better fit and tighter closure around her arms. This is the perfect swaddle and I love that it will grow with your baby and you don’t need a specific “size”. I donated my sleep sacks and wont use any other swaddle! 10/10 rating and would not hesitant to recommend to anyone.
We tried so many swaddles before I bought the Ollie swaddle....this is the only one that works! My daughter would wiggle out of every other swaddle but this one keeps her snug and comfy and she sleeps soundly! We just wrap her up, give her a pacifier and she is sleeping. This swaddle is a life saver for new parents!
The Ollie is seriously a lifesaver!! My son would not stay in ANY other swaddle we tried. And we tried a lot of different types. We thought he just didn’t like his arms in. I read a blog post recommending the Ollie and I decided to give it a shot. The first night we used it he slept 3 hours straight (at 2 1/2 weeks). This overtired mama was sooo thankful! I left hubby home alone with baby at 3 weeks- and I got a text saying “this swaddle is great! Get another one as a backup!” Which I did. This swaddle is not like the rest, totally worth it!!
Love this swaddle! My baby is on the taller side so other swaddles just don’t work because he is too long.
I really wanted to like this 100% and after using a number of the other swaddles, I thought the hype about this one would solve our problems and carry us through the transition out of the swaddle soon. However, my 3 month old was able to get her hand up and Houdini out of this on the first night. She sucks her whole fist and chokes herself so we really needed something that would keep her arms down. I love the fabric and the color and the ease of use but i cannot get it tight enough to keep her secure and safe all night. I also don't like how low the stiff, Velcro like closures go on the body, it seems to restrict hip movement, and that's something they say it will not do. Sadly, I think ill be seeking a return.
Honestly I am disappointed with my second Ollie swaddle. I bought this one and the Velcro straps do not line up properly. I was obsessed with my first one and I am disappointed in the quality of the second one I bought.
Our granddaughter has learned to get out of the swaddle blankets now at 3 months. We are now using the Ollie swaddle and are truly loving the design. So far she has not escaped the swaddle. Thank you so much!
I have pretty much literally tried every swaddle that you can buy. I finally purchased the Ollie for my second boy after having gone thru all the other swaddles with my first. Wish I had bought this for my fist kid cause it is awesome. Seriously, don’t buy the summer infant or the Merlin suit or the Halo etc etc. just spend the $60 on this swaddle and you will not regret it. Take it from someone who has wasted 100s of dollars on other brands. This swaddle holds tight, the fabric is high quality and comfortable, the Velcro is top notch! I’m telling you, you need this swaddle.
The Ollie has been the best baby purchase I ever made. I put my baby girl in it and she puts herself to sleep. 10/10 would recommend .
It was a gift and I had some issues with the usps delivery.. the customer service was excellent. They helped me try to track the missing item and sent out a replacement. I would definitely recommend them to all the moms out there!
Oliver loves is Ollie!! We tried 3 different swaddles before we heard about The Ollie. Our little guy was born at 22in tall and so many of the other swaddles were too small for his height but too big for his weight. The main thing I love about the Ollie is how it is made for any weight/height and grows with our little guy. No needing to worry about sizes and getting a new swaddle as he grows. Which really saves money in the end. This is also the only one he hasn't been able to break out of. Thank you for such a great product!
This is my third child, and I wish I had known about the Ollie sooner! This is our first baby who has slept well...she wakes up once during the night, and has since she was a month old! I love the Ollie, and I’ve ordered a backup just in case. We can’t love without it!
I love the swaddle but am not happy with the quality. The stitching has already started to open up and I have only used the swaddle for a few weeks. I thought the swaddle would be a better quality considering the price.
My daughter used the Ollie and my grand daughter slept through the night by 3 weeks old. She also used it during the day for naps and she slept better then also. If I hadn't seen it work, I wouldn't have believed it!
The material is nice and stretchy but it seems too small in width and doesn't reach under his back to get it tight. Every night he always get his arms out which wakes him up.
I’ve used other Velcro swaddles, but always fumbled with them when laying them out to put my sleepy newborn to bed. He’s wake up, and I’d have to work to get him to sleep again. The Ollie is so simple, so soft, and long enough for my baby to kick his legs! I’ve noticed he stirs less when gassy, and in general sleeps better too! I got this swaddle at 6weeks and wish I had it from the beginning. Comes with an adorable box too that I am putting baby keepsakes in, and a mesh bag for when I was the swaddle so the Velcro doesn’t stick to other clothes. Thank you for making a superior product!
I really like the Ollie swaddle so far for my new baby. The volume of the Velcro is a bit loud, espcially for middle of the night feedings. However, once you use it a couple times, you get the hang of it & it really works like a charm...I’m so glad I purchased it!
I was hoping I could just undo the swaddle from the bottom to less disturb my son at night when changing his diaper but I still have to fully unswaddle him! Other than that we love it!
Love this swaddle! My son was constantly breaking out of the Halo Sleep Sack and it would wake him up. Once we transitioned to the Ollie, he has slept great through the night and at daycare. This swaddle is a total game changer! We love it!
We love the Ollie swaddle! Our baby sleeps so much better!
This swaddle has been great! Our little one was able to break out of the other swaddles but the Ollie is so easy to use & really calms him.
Love this swaddle! My only complaint is I wish it was slightly longer. My son can still kick out of it but he’s on the larger side at 5 months. Being close to the 90% in growth, I know he’s above the average and so this is probably well proportioned for most babies! The Velcro is strong and the material is soft and breathable.
We love our Ollie! Our baby girl was still doing 2-3 hour stretches until we tried the Ollie (she hated all other swaddles). The first night we tried it, we got a 6 hour stretch!! We will recommend this to all of our friends :)
My husband and I tried several different types of swaddles before the Ollie Swaddle. Our little one got his handsand arms out of every single swaddle until we introduced the Ollie Swaddle. Now he stays snug and secure with both arms in and sleeps longer than before. We would definitely recommend the Ollie Swaddle above all others.
I used these when my little girl was newborn and loved them! I have since bought for two friends as gifts. Definitely a recommended product for me!
I had seen advertisements on Facebook and Instagram for The Ollie Swaddle. I was interested, especially after reading the reviews, but I had already purchased 4 different brands of swaddles for our first baby. Our baby came and the swaddles we had worked fine but I had a gripe with each of them... too much fabric, not enough fabric, riding up close to her face, etc. We ended up taking an online sleep course and she recommended The Ollie Swaddle and offered a discount. I figured, why not try it? We ordered one and after the first use, I was telling everyone I knew who was expecting to get the Ollie! It’s so easy to use and the fabric is just great. Not too heavy, not too light. The swaddle stays around her shoulders so I don’t have to worry about the fabric riding up and covering her face. After one use, I ordered two more. The other swaddles I had purchased are long gone. We are so happy!
Y’all! It all started when I starting following the Ollie swaddle on Instagram. The pictures were cute but what really was this swaddle thing all about. My son was born in October and a terrible sleeper from the beginning but he is my third so I knew what I was getting myself into. But why, why did he have to be another newborn I literally could never put down? I want to snuggle him all the time but mama needs her time and my other littles need their mama too. After T H R E E months, three long months...12 weeks...84 days, I made the purchase on a Monday and received the Ollie swaddle on Thursday. He absolutely loves it and sleeps at least 4-5 hours at night which is so much more than what I hoped for. Not to mention naps...HE SLEEPS! I know the price can be a little up there but you get what you pay for and this thing is the real deal. You won’t regret it.
We LOVE the Ollie swaddle! It fits much more snugly and is so much easier to use than any of the other swaddles we own - it's the only one he wears to bed now! Better sleep for everyone in the house means this thing is worth it's weight in gold.
We love the Ollie! We tried a variety of swaddles for our little guy and by FAR the Ollie was the best. Not only was it the only one he didn't wiggle out of on a nightly basis, it was simple for all of his caretakers to use- Mom & Dad, Grandma and our Nanny had no trouble at all. That's not something we could say about the others!
My favorite swaddle! The only one that keeps him asleep!
Our granddaughter, Anastasia, had a terrible time sleeping from the beginning. When she was 1 month old I found the Ollie. One very difficult night I swaddled her up in her Ollie and she stopped crying immediately. She slept for 4 hours straight ! We have been using the Ollie ever since, and our little Anastasia has been able to sleep for 4 hour stretches during the night. We have a happy baby and happy parents.
I bought my daughter an Ollie wrap for a shower gift for my new grandson. She says that he loves it so much for bedtime that soon after he was born I bought a 2nd one for them, so they'd always have one clean.
We tried a couple different swaddles before finding the Ollie! I love how functional the Ollie is and it’s so easy to get her in and out of the swaddle and how it will grow with her! Our daughter has started sleeping in longer stretches and wakes up so much happier!

As a first time mom, you want to get your hands on all the necessities that help your baby (& you!) sleep! We discovered The Ollie through @takingcarababies and learned about the benefits of swaddling with velcro as our baby would be able to break out of all other swaddles. We started using The Ollie when our baby was 4 weeks old, and for the first time, we had to wake to feed her! She’s now 12 weeks old and sleeping 9-11 hours at night! I’ve already purchased two Ollie’s for my friends/family. Get The Ollie! It’s a game changer!
I had been searching for a swaddle that wouldn’t overheat my son AND wouldn’t ride up on his face. This swaddle is absolutely wonderful on both accounts! It also stays in place, keeps his arms in tight and comes in super cute colors. Don’t buy any other swaddle, this is the best one!!
We love the Ollie swaddle. Our little girl has strong arms and the swaddle keeps her in snug and sleeping longer. Highly recommend.
I got this swaddle as a gift since I bought two for my own baby!
This being my third baby I often try to get the bare minimum as I know every baby has different preferences. From day one Raven loved being swaddled and still does, 5 weeks later. We have a variety or swaddles but none really 'did the trick'. I decided to invest in an Ollie and so far it has been the best buy for her! I'm not sure how or why it instantly soothes her but I'm certainly not going to question it. I wish I had this option for my other two and if I could give any advice to expectant parents it would be to invest in this swaddle from the start!
This swaddle has very strong velcro which baby cannot break out of which is nice. However, it is stiff and scratchy and doesn't feel nice when you are holding baby for long periods of time.
When our three month old became hospitalized, the Ollie allowed us to still comfortably swaddle our boy with a feeding tube, oxygen tube in place, and monitors on each foot. It allowed our little man to get the rest he needed while he was recovering!
I usually don’t write reviews, but for this I needed to. Since my son was born, he woke every 2-3 hours for a feeding (he is EBF). When he hit 9 weeks he started waking up every hour through the night which started to take its toll on me. My sister in law told me about the Ollie so I decided to get one and wow! The first night he slept 5 hours straight. My husband thought it was a fluke. The second night he did it again! I was amazed! Last night he slept for 6 hours straight in his Ollie, that my husband woke up and said we need to buy more! I am so thankful for this swaddle! It is worth every penny.
We love our Ollie swaddle! It’s so easy to use and the comfort of knowing there’s not a bunch of fabric collecting by my babies face is so worth the cost!
I was so excited to get this swaddle for my 13 week old baby girl. From what I read it was one of the best swaddles and was pretty much escape proof. Well my 13 week old, 10’pound baby girl was able to break her hands out of this swaddle from the first night we tried it. We fastened the Velcro all the way tight and she still broke free. So needless to say we spent a good amount of money on a swaddle that was supposedly the best and it didn’t work from night one. I will say that it does have some positives. First, it is a very breathable fabric which I liked. Also, it is one size so if it does work for a baby you only have to buy one.
The ease of use is amazing but unfortunately my baby just did not like this swaddle! So disappointing :(
Hands down my favorite swaddle on the market - I wish I had known about them from the get go, I would’ve purchased two and been done buying swaddles! This is now my go to shower gift for friends.
My baby girl would sleep MAX 4 hours at a time, she loved to be swaddled but she would always break free and id have to reswaddle her in the middle of the night which would always wake her up. I debated Buying the Ollie for weeks because of the price. And let me tell you, it’s worth every single penny! She NEVER breaks out, it’s easy to use, and she sleeps in 6 hour stretches over the night. I highly reccomend to any mom. By far the best swaddle.
We absolutely love the color of the meadow Ollie swaddle and love the way it works! The only downside for my husband and I is the large tag on the front of the swaddle - it feels like we’re advertising for Ollie whenever we snap a picture of our newborn. We could do without the branding right on the front. Overall, we’re very happy with this swaddle - it’s the only one we’re using for our son.
I love the swaddle itself- the color, the softness. I also like how secure the Velcro is. We tried to use like 4-5 times, but is just too hot for my 1 month old. Our house is about 68-72 degrees at night and my son was sweaty when I would change his diaper in the middle of the night. This is scary as a new parent and the increased temperature is a risk for SIDS. We will try again when the weather cools off, though I fear we will have the same issue. I wish it wasn’t so expensive. And I wish there was a lightweight option. Again, I liked everything about this swaddle except for the weight, which unfortunately prevents us from using it.
Love this swaddle!! Bought another one week after she was born to have it on hand! Recommended it to friends ! Definetly a must buy!!
Love Love Love this product!
I looked into the Ollie swaddle for our newborn after reading the amazing reviews and seeing it’s a swaddle that grows with your baby and won’t need to buy in another size later on. It can be used to put the arms in or out. So far it’s working great for us! It’s very easy to use unlike some other swaddles. The fabric is great quality our baby runs on the warmer side, and can sometimes sweat a little in it. They have great customer service, we had a small issue with our order and they fixed it immediately!
I do like this swaddle as it is light and comfortable for my newborn. She does not get too hot. However, she still does not tolerate having her arms swaddled. So we swaddle with arms out.
This swaddle is worth every penny. I never thought our little one liked his arms swaddled, but it turns out he loves it. It’s the easiest swaddle out there (I’ve tried SO many), which makes middle of the night reswaddling so much easier.
We absolutely love the Ollie. We have used it for all three of our little ones. The material is so soft, the Velcro is strong- keeping the baby swaddled all night, and it's the perfect weight for all seasons. We have tried many different brands, but the Ollie is the only one for us. Thank you for creating such a great product!
This swaddle is perfect for our little guy! We had some sleep regression happening and he just seemed uncomfortable at all times. We decided to try the Ollie and he started pulling 6+ hours. A week in and he’s sleeping 8-10 hours! He has started to roll so his arms are free but he seems to love how snuggled up this swaddle makes him feel, and connects his sleep cycles without issue. I am recommending this to all new parents from now on.
Love our Ollie ! Worth every penny.
Love the material and the durability of the Velcro. I just wish it was a little bigger. My little guy is 9 months old and still enjoys a tight swaddle. I think this will be too small pretty quickly.
Love this swaddle. So much easier than the ones with the tabs in keeping the fabric away from our baby’s face.
I can not say enough how much I love the Ollie Swaddle...I have been telling everyone having a baby it is totally worth the price. My little Man was a good sleeper but now he's way more content with the Ollie! He gets a great night of sleep and I get a little more!
I love the fabric and how it keeps her body temperature normal, not too hot or too cold. Living in Texas, summers are hot and I was worried about how I would swaddle Hadley without making her too hot. The Ollie swaddle is the answer! I love how easy it is to work, even my husband can figure it out . Hadley still doesn’t love to be swaddled and fights it often, but I love that I don’t wake up with her swaddle in her face anymore when she is in one of her swaddle fights.
I am a FTM and have been poring over YouTube, Amazon, etc. looking for the best solutions for my son... he is just a few days old, and loves being swaddled but breaks free of the standard hospital blankets really easily. I’m so glad that I ordered this months ago... and thought to put it in my hospital bag! You’re able to bundle him/her up as tight or as loose as you need to... plus, you can undo the bottom enough to be able to still change your baby’s diaper without completely startling him/her. It’s been great so far!
My 4 month old would not sleep more then 2-3 hours at a time . We bought this because another family member convinced us it would help and it did!! Literally the first night we used it our little one slept through the night. 9pm-7am!!!!! He had been ever since using the Ollie swaddle so from now on every new parent I know will be getting one of these as a baby shower gift.
We had the regular muslin swaddles at the beginning and they worked, but they required so much adjusting! We had one of the Ollie swaddles and decide to give that a try, SO much easier. I ended up ordering a second one incase she gets one dirty we will always have a back up. She sleeps really well in this swaddle! A few times she has managed to get her hands free, up by her face, but that might be more us not doing it tight enough. She looks like the cutest little burrito in this! Would definitely recommend and use as a baby shower gift.
The product it self is amazing! I love the color, and the soft amazing fabric. BUT so far, my baby freaks out everytime we try to un-velcro her. The sound scares her to death! We haven't figured out a good solution. I want to use it but I don't know how to help the loud velcro sound, as it is very good quality velcro and I can tell it is very durable... :(
The Ollie swaddle really helped our newborn learn sleep cues. She feels so safe in the swaddle and is able to soothe herself to get a better rest in between feedings. The Ollie swaddle helped us manage the ever-changing schedule of a newborn. We are now able to get some sleep while she is sleeping
The swaddle works pretty good. The material does keep my baby cool, but unless we secure the velcro scarily tight, she is able to eventually get her arms out which wakes her up. So I have to choose between wrapping her so tight that I know she can't get out but then have a pit in my stomach that she isn't breathing well, or wrap it what seems like appropriately tight but have her wake up several times a night because she has gotten her arms out and they are flailing around.
I have bought 3 Ollie’s so far and getting ready to purchase one more for my 2nd granddaughter who will arrive in May. My Daugher loved it with my 1st grand daughter she slept all night long. I have gifted the other two and both moms have loved them. Great product thank you !
This is the only swaddle I've been able to use. She gets out of or hates the rest. I haven't experienced her sleeping longer but at least she not getting her arms out and waking herself up.
We love the Ollie! I purchased it in stone before our little man was born and have used it every night since for the past 7 weeks! He sleeps so safe and sound in it that I recently ordered a second to rotate in as a spare; because we never want to be without our perfect swaddle.
The perfect swaddle for my baby! I chose this product because my son kept busting out of the swaddle blankets we’d use at home because they were too small. We tried a Muslim swaddle and he’d sweat in it. My husband had a hard time swaddling him and I wanted my husband to feel more a part of the bedtime/naptime routines since I’m breastfeeding. The Ollie was just what we needed! My husband feels so much better and my baby sleeps so much better in the Ollie Swaddle!
I've struggled to find the right swaddle for our son, so I wish that I had found the Ollie first. Our little guy has always preferred to have his arms out, and any swaddle that allowed for that also gave him too much leg room. The Ollie allows him to have both arms out while still keeping his legs from moving all over the place and keeping him awake. Now we're able to swaddle him, put him in his bed while he's awake, and he'll fall asleep and sleep until his next feeding. Pretty awesome! And I think that the Ollie will allow me to slowly give him more leg room and loosen the rest of the swaddle over time to transition out of a swaddle. I'm so glad that I finally found the right swaddle for us!
As first time parents we were new to the swaddle world, and when we got home we rushed out to the store to buy swaddles for our little one. With the other swaddles she always managed to break out of them and it would disrupt her sleep, she also grew out to them and we bought the next size up and still Houdini would break out most to the nights. Finally we decided to purchase the Ollie and my biggest regret is that we didn't purchase this swaddle in the first place. She has not broken out of this one, and the length is adjustable so it grows with baby. The bottom opens for quick nighttime changes, without having to take off the swaddle like the other ones we purchased. The price is what orginally scared us off of investing in the Ollie, but with the two sizes of the other swaddles we had to purchase we would have been better off purchasing the Ollie.
This is or second Ollie. We used one with our first son 3 years ago and the very first purchase I made when pregnant with my 2nd son was another Ollie!
We love this swaddle. We received it as a gift with our first child and it was a serious lifesaver. It is super soft material that is easy to work with. We purchased two more with our second child. A little pricey, but worth it.
The Ollie Swaddle is definitely the best and easiest swaddle I've used so far. But! Our son still breaks free and he's only a week old. I've just started to leave his little arms out and he enjoys the snug feeling regardless. The presentation and box you receive is so special, this company has really done a nice job and I'd recommend it for a gift for any mommy-to-be friend.
I loved my Ollie Swaddle for my first daughter. It was a lifesaver and helped her sleep long stretches early on. I can’t wait to use my new Ollie Swaddle for baby #2 due in March.
