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 used this on our little guy starting at 4 weeks old. It took a couple of weeks but he started sleeping really well. Sep 17, 2019

    This didn't work for my son. Concept is good and makes sense, but I guess you can't trick some babies! Sep 17, 2019

    Helped my baby sleep through the night in 3 nights! However, they can break out of the swaddle, so make sure to try the "blanket trick" underneath so they stay put! Sep 11, 2019

    Yes & No. I didn’t see much difference with this compared with other sleep sacks. Yes because it helped transition her from Merlin’s Magic Suit. No because it’s kind of too expensive. Sep 06, 2019

  • I love this swaddle. I have tried many many swaddles and this by far exceeds all of the rest. It provides the security and comfort my baby needs. Sep 05, 2019

  • Soft material and easy to put on with two zippers for easy nighttime diaper changes. It claims to help baby sleep, I’m not sure it helped my LO but still love this sleepsack for the adorable design! Sep 05, 2019

  • The weighted areas make baby feel like they’re being held. Worked great and my allowed my daughter to sleep through the night. Sep 04, 2019

    We still use this, but I don't think the weighted feature helps or hinders her sleep. Its very comfortable and easy to put on her, but it's not the miracle sleep fixer as advertised. Aug 27, 2019

  • Love this and so does my baby Aug 24, 2019

  • Tried this for my newborn but it was too big. Never tried once he got older as he was sleeping great in a different brand Aug 22, 2019

  • This helped my one month old sleep longer stretches at night. Will definitely be purchasing the Zen sack when she gets older. Aug 16, 2019

    Seemed like a great concept, however it becomes uncomfortable and not safe once your baby learns to roll/sleep on his stomach. Aug 16, 2019

  • 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
