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.

  • I am in love with these and can’t wait to use them when the baby comes! I hear the sizes sometimes run small so I figured with the price why not just get a 3-6 months. Give you both longer sleep times Sep 16, 2021

    My daughter loved this from the age of 3 months to about 10 months. It helped her feel secure and sleep without my husband or I in the room. Recommend. Sep 14, 2021

  • Literally the only way I can swaddle my son, the weighted part soothes him Aug 17, 2021

    While not the miracle “sleep through the night” I read it was, this swaddle is pretty awesome! I love that the arms zip off so it can transition with us Jul 31, 2021

  • The idea and science behind weighted blankets is so awesome and I love the idea of a safe way to do this for my infant! Jul 22, 2021

  • This is a decent swaddle, but was not any better or worse than his other swaddles despite the weighted areas. My baby also was able to free his hands from it early on. Jul 14, 2021

  • I just purchased a few of these and they are amazing. I don't know why I waited so long. I would love to get more!! The little weight sooths babies and helps to keep them calm. May 31, 2021

  • This is dangerous. My baby was able to get her hands out the bottom and pull the swaddle part over her face! I ended up returning it! May 31, 2021

    It’s a very cute swaddle May 29, 2021

  • Wanted to love these, but they just didn’t work for our baby. Mar 22, 2021

  • THESE ARE THE BEST. My first born just outgrew it at 2.5 and she still sleeps with it in her crib. my 9 month old loves hers. It is can be worn on the back or front. Mar 17, 2021

    I don’t think it really helped our daughter sleep. The design is a little inconvenient compared to other sleep sacks. Mar 16, 2021

  • An age old trick for helping baby sleep was to put rice in a glove atop of baby, this is built into the swaddle, so smart and so handy Mar 04, 2021

  • My daughter fell asleep much faster when we started using the Zen Swaddle. Had to stop using it at night because the Velcro wasn’t strong enough to keep her arms in through the night. Mar 01, 2021

  • This was just ok for us. My daughter was a 95-percentile baby, so I think due to her size she was able to work her way out more easily when she got to two months. Feb 11, 2021

  • Used these sleep sacks for my first from 3 months-8months. He loved them. Have the regular cotton as well as the thicker winter sacks. Jan 31, 2021

  • Worked for awhile with my daughter but then she was able to get her hands under the band a pull it up. I changed to their zip swaddle and have loved it. Jan 28, 2021

  • We love this as a sleep sack for our babe. Not sure if the weighted beans help her though but she seems to sleep very comfortably in it. Jan 25, 2021

  • These were great. Didnt feel comfortable using them when baby could roll tho Jan 19, 2021

  • Have this product but wish the weight was a little bigger. Did not work for us but baby slept cozy in it Jan 17, 2021

  • My son loves to be swaddled. When it was time to transition we bought this to give a little more comfort. He absolutely hated it. We used it from and back. This product was a waste of money for us. Jan 04, 2021

  • Bought 2 to help with sleep training. So far haven't seen a difference from when we use other sleep sacks though. Jan 03, 2021

  • Didn’t work well with my daughter, but honestly nothing helped her sleep. So may have been more about her than the swaddle. Dec 31, 2020

  • Nice swaddle but didn’t really give her any more comfort like advertised. I don’t think it’s a bad product just didn’t work For us. Pro: lightweight. Con: expensive. Dec 15, 2020

  • I don’t know if this is what really did it, but my newborn started sleeping due 4 hour chunks of time once I started putting her in this. Dec 02, 2020
