Should I choose the size a little smaller?
One of the main functions of our Wombis is the transition from swaddling to free sleep. In order to ensure this main function of the Wombi, it is particularly important that the babies have a slight resistance on their hands. So you get the safe and secure feeling you know from mom's baby bump!
We therefore recommend starting with size “XS”, especially for mothers who wrap or swaddle their child.
By switching to a Wombi, it can also happen in individual cases that a baby needs some time until it feels really comfortable in its new baby sleeping bag. The Wombi should then initially be tried out for short afternoon naps so that the little ones can get used to the new baby sleeping bag.
Only when the reactions of the little ones are positive can the Wombi be tried for the night.
Basically, the little ones need about 10-15 minutes to get used to the new sleepwear. If your baby still doesn't like our sleeping bag at first, then in most cases it helps to try the Wombi again 2-3 weeks later . Because then your baby just wasn't ready to sleep without swaddling.
