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.

    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

  • Tried an failed. We just could not get this wrap tight enough and our baby escaped every time. I love the concept and the wraps were adorable. Just wasn't for us. Mar 27, 2018

  • Didn’t make any difference in how my baby slept and the material makes it hard to keep the swaddle tight so she always got her arms out. Mar 19, 2018

  • My new born only sleeps with his zen swaddle, he doesn't like being swaddle with his hands in but this still works for him! Mar 14, 2018

  • Great swaddle - gives the baby comfort just like mom would :) Mar 12, 2018

    I love that this fits newborns and almost toddlers! I noticed a difference immediately using the weighted swaddle vs not. I’ve lent this to multiple friends to try & they found it to work as well! Mar 10, 2018

    The Zen swaddle is all my newborn slept in when she came home from the hospital. The weight on top gave her a sense of having someone with her at all times. Feb 12, 2018

  • I loved this. I don't know if it helped her sleep bc I was terrified to NOT use it in case but she did sleep and it was easy to use and I am a fan! Feb 01, 2018

  • The concept is great but I don't think it was any more effective than a normal swaddle and was definitely 4x as difficult to wash - it literally takes days to dry thanks to those beans Jan 29, 2018

  • This was great at first as it was very calming to my little one. But it was short lived as she is a kicker and was able to kick out of this swaddle pretty easily. Jan 19, 2018

  • I tried this out. I didn’t notice a difference in how my baby slept. The weighted beans didn’t seem to affect him. I do like the arms out option because my baby hated being confined. Jan 17, 2018

  • May be a great product... easy to put on, different fabrics available and comparable cost to other trendy sleep products. Overall we used it once and decided to go cold turkey and ditch sleep aids. Jan 15, 2018

  • Just bought. Great quality product but has not helped with my child's sleeping habits. Jan 03, 2018

    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
