Tell us about embé. When did embé start and how has it evolved since then?
Embé® (pronounced “Em-bay”) was founded in Orange County, California and is led by founder and CEO, Jennifer Wynh. Jennifer is the wife and mother of four beautiful children—having four children in the short span of five and a half years. In the summer of 2012, after the birth of her third child and an unsuccessful search of a much needed summer swaddle, Jennifer was disappointed and a little surprised to find that nothing met her needs. She wanted a swaddle that was lightweight and versatile for the warmer seasons so she could swaddle and wrap her baby’s arms in the blanket, but have the option to leave the legs out of the blanket during warmer temperatures. The solution came to her late one night, and she knew that she had the answer to a common problem that many parents deal with when swaddling. She quickly got working on her first prototype. Using her strong sense of design and engineering background, she birthed the concept for the embé® 2-Way Swaddle™. Two years later, the embé® 2-Way Swaddle—the first ever patented legs-in and legs-out swaddle—made its debut. Since then, embé® has been helping to provide families with smarter, safer, and more restful sleep. embé® truly is: Created for Baby. Inspired by MOM.
