"When my 2nd child was born I was introduced to the Ollie swaddle and it completely changed our understanding of how smooth naptime and bedtime can be with proper swaddling. We used the swaddle for every nap and bedtime as long as possible and were sad when our baby outgrew it. With my third baby we've been able to use both the Ollie swaddle and then transition into using the Alphie sleepsack and I've been so grateful for a product that is so thoughtfully produced and helps us all get the best sleep possible. The material keeps our baby warm without overheating her, secured without making her uncomfortable, and I have peace of mind putting her in it. Absolute necessity if you value sleep!"

"We got the Alphie early to try out. Our Iris loved the Ollie. I am still obsessed with baby burritos💕 We had to alternate right and left arms out for a while. She was so attached to the Ollie. But after using her Ollie with both arms out awhile we started naps in the Alphie. I think the tighter bodice reminds her of the swaddle and she loves the fabric. She will rub her fingers on it while she goes to sleep. We tried other sleep sacks too, but the Alphie is her clear favorite. Now we only use it at naps or bedtime to help with the sleep routine💕"
"I have a 15 month old we LOVE the Alphie. The transition from the Ollie swaddle to the Alphie was seamless. The design is both roomy and snuggly. With the signature Ollie velcro across the chest, my little one is secure and cozy all night. The moisture wicking material ensures that he is comfortable all year long. I cannot wait to see it in Target alongside the swaddle (hopeful thinking)."

The Why Behind The Alphie®
One important thing you can do for your little one is to provide routine in their lives. They left the comfort of your womb, where their entire world was filled with consistency and repetition, to the outside world, where, in a split second, everything changed dramatically. By providing routine, you are allowing your little one to learn to anticipate the happenings in their lives, rather than being uncertain of what is to come. By using The Ollie® and using it as a part of your nap/nighttime sleep routine, it served as a cue for your little one. I wanted to create something to allow that same sleep cue for your little one to continue, even as they transition out of the swaddle. I spent five (yes, 5) years developing a product to ease the transition, while also replicating the sleep cue. That is The Alphie® you see today.
The Alphie® as a (Continued) Sleep Cue
We use cues to communicate with our little ones. They use them to express themselves and we provide cues back to respond and provide understanding, predictability, and support. Your Ollie® has been a significant sleep cue for your little one by letting them know that when it is on or being put on, it is time for calming, soothing, and restful sleep. This is an important cue to continue for your little one. Because they have reached the developmental milestone of rolling from back to stomach, they can now transition out of The Ollie® and, with the purposeful design of The Alphie®, continue with the same sleep cue.
The Alphie® is made with the same custom moisture-wicking fabric as The Ollie®. That means the focus is on helping to support proper temperature regulation, by wicking away excess moisture around the skin and releasing it into the environment, so the moisture doesn't rest against the skin. This is part of our magical mix of love and science. We have actually created custom fibers that are woven into our fabric to create the wicking (which means free from chemicals or topical agents, as confirmed by our Standard 100 OEKO-TEX® Class l certifications.)
Safe Sleep and Proper Usage is Our Priority
When your little one is able to roll from back to stomach, it is super important to either stop swaddling or transition to both arms out with your Ollie®. Now, you can also transition to The Alphie®. The Alphie® continues to promote safe sleep by reducing the need to have any blankets on little ones, so cribs can be bare. The design and stretch in the fabric allow for snugness around the torso, just like your Ollie®, while also allowing for all joint movement and flexibility. The custom closure allows you to create the perfect fit every time, even as your little one grows.
