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.

  • For the first few months this was a godsend! My baby slept through the night like a champ with this Jul 17, 2019

  • This lightweight sleep sack is easy to use and wash. It helped my son sleep for a short time. The weighted chest helped calm him down, but his startle reflex kept waking him up. Jul 13, 2019

  • Baby is stilling sleeping in it every night since newborn 10+ hrs Only thing is that Velcro wears away Jul 08, 2019

  • This significantly improved my baby's sleep. She still isn't the best sleeper, but she sleeps much better than before we started using this. Jul 07, 2019

  • Definitely isn’t a well loved item by my daughter. She flips out non stop while it’s on, the 2 times I’ve put it on her... Jun 26, 2019

    This swaddle and the baby zen sleep sack totally changed our lives by allowing us to sleep! My son loves his sleep sack so much - as soon as I put it on him he immediately begins to self soothe. Jun 24, 2019

    The weight of the blanket is to much for a 2 month old even though it claims to be safe. It makes me very uneasy Jun 13, 2019

    Until my son started rolling over, these were our go to wearable blanket. The only reason we stopped was because he didn't 100% roll over, and I could tell the egg weighted portion was uncomfortable. Jun 10, 2019

  • Our baby sleeps more soundly when in her Zen Swaddle. It's also super comfortable and has plenty of room at the bottom for her to move her legs around. Apr 22, 2019

  • Bought this but haven’t been able to use yet because of weight of baby she’s too small for their recommended weight. Sister had them and swears by them Apr 11, 2019

  • I have a son who couldn’t sleep without me touch him. So. I thought this might work. He easily broke through. I was extremely disappointed. Apr 07, 2019

  • Cannot say enough about these!!!! Worth every penny, grows with them so you can use it for months!!! Buyyyyyyy thessssseee Mar 28, 2019

  • I got several of these and I really liked them at first, but then it seemed that they really weren't working. Not sure if its because we hit the 4mo sleep regression or if they never really worked. Mar 21, 2019

  • Baby is sleeping right no in this wonderful sleep sack. She is comfortable and falls quickly to sleep each night. Mar 17, 2019

  • The zen swaddle is a must! I started using this when my daughter was 2.5 months old and by night 2, she slept 8 straight hours! She outgrew the swaddle quickly but thankful for the Zen sleep sack. Mar 10, 2019

  • It's a very nice swaddle, soft, strong velcro, but the weight did not seem to make a difference. I like that the swaddle grows with baby. Mar 08, 2019

    I can’t tell if this actually helps baby sleep better. It doesn’t seem to make things worse but really hard to tell if it actually helps at all. Wouldn’t say it’s really a necessity for this reason. Feb 16, 2019

  • There is no velcro on the center part and my infant manages to kick out of it. I think I will try the zen swaddles again once he has outgrown the swaddle part and just needs a sleep blanket. Feb 12, 2019

  • Love the weighted area and how it can be turned to the back is your baby is a tummy sleeper. I have several of these and highly recommend them Feb 08, 2019

    AMAZING. My son has slept thru the night since 3 months old. I keep buying the larger sizes. We don't put him to bet without this on. Jan 16, 2019

  • Even though his didn’t do incredibly magical things for babes sleep, it excellent quality, perfect weight for year round and the science is neat. Jan 02, 2019

  • Really nice fabric. I’m not sure it does anything that a reg swaddle can, but it stays tight. Dec 20, 2018

  • Wanted to love this but once my son started to roll over in his sleep I felt it was uncomfortable to have the weighted part under him. He constantly changes sleep positions so this did not work for us Oct 23, 2018

  • This worked when all the others didnt! It was pricey but got the job done! Easy to use. Great material and easy to use [even half asleep!]! This is a must have! Oct 17, 2018

  • This is a must have for restless babies, it will save your life and your sleep also. I noticed a difference since day one and it only got better each time we used it, we still use it as much as we can Aug 31, 2018

  • Have used this multiple times for our LO, since he hates being swaddled and having his arms restricted. It gives him just the right amount of comfort and freedom to sleep so well at night! Aug 31, 2018

  • The material is very nice and well made, but it is too stretchy which makes it easy for the baby to get out of it on the middle of the night. The weighted parts are an excellent idea! Jul 10, 2018

  • I got the swaddle and the sleep sack to try and help my son sleep better at night after reading the reviews I was convinced this would help. It didn’t at all Jul 06, 2018

    I used this to transition out of the Merlic Magic suit. It helped a little. I didn't like to have to button on both side and zip up on the side. It was difficult to do with a wriggling baby. Jul 03, 2018

    Love the weighted swaddle and the comfort it gave my baby early on in his life. The fabric is so soft too. Jul 03, 2018

  • I wanted to love this so bad. I don't think it helped my baby sleep any better and it runs big. The fabric on the top also bunches up and can cover babies face so best to continuously monitor them. Jul 02, 2018

    Love it!!!! It helps baby to stay snuggle and to stay asleep. Very soft and cute Jun 04, 2018

  • I like the sleep sack but don't like the actual swaddle. The velcro seems off, I could never get it to fit right. But the sleep sack is nice. The weight didn't do anything for my baby. May 27, 2018

    Great concept, but the fabric was too stretchy and the construction around the shoulders allowed my wriggly baby to escape or have the fabric shift and bunch up around his face/mouth/nose. Apr 26, 2018
