Research shows that touch, even simulated touch, calms babies by triggering their self-soothing response. The Zen Swaddle’s lightly weighted areas apply gentle pressure on your baby’s sides and center, mimicking the comfort of being held. This helps newborns snooze through minor disturbances, even startle reflexes. During their test phase, mothers reported that their babies got at least two hours of extra sleep.

    My newborn loves this swaddle! The weighted pads definitely help him to rest better. He always could get his arms out, but i used a little baby hack with an extra swaddle blanket to keep his arms snug Nov 14, 2017

  • Wonderfully made product but my child hates to be swaddled or restricted in any way. I still support this product though because of the quality. Oct 23, 2017

  • I so badly wanted to love this, but didn't keep baby's arms down and she slept terribly every time we tried it. It's just sitting in a drawer now. Oct 22, 2017

    My daughter didn't care for this product. I thought it might help her sleep longer. She cried every time I put it in and kept trying to take the weighted part off. I guess it's just not for her. Apr 24, 2017

  • I wish I had purchased this sooner my baby really loved it when I first bought it she's 3.5 months now and she ninjas her arms out now so I don't find it as comforting for her with the arms out Jan 23, 2017

  • Definitely recommend these to all new mothers! I received this ad a gift and it was awesome! I love the weighted feature in the front that's meant to mimic a mothers touch..worked like a dream! Jan 09, 2017

  • Our baby did not seem soothed by the weights and had absolutely no trouble breaking out of this swaddle. Also, it wasn't long enough - she easily kicked the bottom out every time. Oct 15, 2016

  • This swaddle delivers exactly what it promises! It has been the best baby buy to date. The only complaint I have is that going back and forth to a regular swaddle has been hard. Oct 06, 2016

  • This helped my baby sleep. He did outgrow it at about 4 months though unfortunately. Oct 05, 2016

  • I really think this is a big part of why our 2nd daughter slept through the night early on! My favorite baby gift these days! Oct 05, 2016

    This has been a GOD SEND for my 7 month old who doesn't like to sleep thru the night. Every night she wears this and sleeps so much better than when she doesn't! Not thru the whole night but close! Oct 04, 2016

  • Love the materials used, very soft and cozy, but it didn't work in helping my baby sleep longer. Sep 21, 2016

  • Thought this would be the best since it had a small weight. But never used it since it was too big and too soft and baby slipped out of it.... Aug 09, 2016

    Awesome. Combination velcro swaddle, Magic Merlin, and Miracle Blanket in one. Love it. Jun 29, 2016

  • This swaddle is great and helps the baby feel extra comfort and like you are still holding them. Apr 23, 2016

  • Should be the #1 thing on your registry. My little slept like a dream in this swaddle. I cried when she outgrew it. Mar 14, 2016

    Didn't really work for my baby. Jan 30, 2016

  • I won a Zen Swaddle Sack from Nested Bean - and I LOVE IT! Especially having a NICU baby, I love that she feels comforted and held. 3 months of washes & no pilling on super soft cotton. Lovely prints! Oct 15, 2015

  • This swaddle has little weighted pouches on the chest and sides. They say it helps baby feel safe and like he is still being held. Our baby loved it! Jul 03, 2015

  • Our babe has been sleeping through the night in these swaddled since I stopped waking her to nurse. Like an off button when she is beyond tired and fighting sleep! Love them!! Apr 05, 2015

    This swaddle is fine, I didn't find the weighted pockets made any difference in babies sleep but I did appreciate that the velcro wraps all the way around the back making wrapping small babies easier. Jul 29, 2014

  • We loves this!!!! Only wish they had bigger sizes. We gained sleep thanks to this swaddle. Worth the money! Jul 22, 2014
