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.

  • Didn’t worth the money and after some research I read it was not recommended adding that weight into the babies so I stopped using it . May 04, 2022

  • My baby loves this. It changed his sleep night 1 of using it. He will stay asleep for 5-6 hours at a time with this Apr 26, 2022

    Won’t stay closed!! If your baby rolls at all, it doesn’t secure other than with the weight, so I kept finding him with his legs sticking out halfway through the night. Apr 24, 2022

  • Bought them for my 6 month old for spring summer since the material is on a thin side. Not the best sleep sack in the market but works ok. Apr 17, 2022

    Nice weighted sleeper! Apr 13, 2022

  • So easy to place sleeping baby into swaddle. Weighted chest section provided extra comfort for newborn. Apr 09, 2022

  • Love the concept but my baby hated it. I think for babies that enjoy being swaddled this might be nice but missed the mark for us. So many people recommended this though. Mar 13, 2022

    I don’t know if the weighted bean actually works, but my baby sleeps well in this. Mar 09, 2022

  • it worked just fine for our daughter. She didn't sleep any better or words though. i will say neck is a bit high when you reverse it for stomach sleeping baby. Mar 02, 2022

    My babies did well sleeping with this but I don't think it put them to sleep faster or made them sleep longer. They liked it and I liked it. Mar 02, 2022

    Unfortunately these didn't work for us, I wish it was weighted on the legs, which is what I thought when buying, it also made breastfeeding difficult due to placement of the beads on chest. Feb 04, 2022

  • I wanted this to work so badly, but it didn’t seem to smooth my baby at all. Probably depends on the child. Dec 05, 2021

  • Nice weighted swaddle but baby was able to get his arms out. Did help soothe him though Nov 28, 2021

  • Neither of my littles seemed to care if it was a zen or halo sleepsack. Nov 05, 2021

  • 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
