Why weeLove Zen Sack:

The Zen Sack incorporates a lightly weighted center section to soothe your baby through bedtime through bedtime and middle of the night wake-ups. Designed to mimic the gentle pressure of your palm, you can slip out of the nursery while your tot slips into dreamland. (Lots of weeSpring parents are big fans of the similarly awesome Zen Swaddle, so check it out if you haven’t entered arms-free territory yet.)

A few other noteworthy perks: adjustable shoulder straps for a perfect fit, easy access for diaper duty thanks to the side opening with two-way zipper, cozy 100% cotton material, and two sizes to grow with your baby up to a year old.

Thanks to the Zen Sack, you can break free from a swaddle before baby does...

  • Our daughter did not like being swaddled, but she loved this! It provides just enough weight to help her stay asleep but gives the freedom of having her arms out! Feb 19, 2020

    Not sure if it calmed baby but it kept him warm during the winter. Was easy to put on and easy to change diapers in the night. Feb 18, 2020

  • Used a couple times. My son slept better in his sleeper pajamas and I worried he would get stuck if he rolled over. Feb 16, 2020

  • Expensive af for something that does not work. Feb 12, 2020

  • Did not like. Very short fit Feb 11, 2020

    My baby sleeps great with this sack. The small weight mimics my hand on his chest and he sleeps like a dream. Feb 10, 2020

  • Went from the Zen swaddle to this. ❤️❤️❤️! Feb 08, 2020

  • Just one more step the changing the diaper at night and it didn’t help him sleep any better Feb 04, 2020

  • We bought this because we loved the swaddle, never got to use it. I’m sure we’d love it! Feb 02, 2020

  • There is nothing wrong with this sleep sack but my son didn’t love it, plus he’s a side sleeper so it didn’t really work Jan 31, 2020

  • Great for older babies. Love thy at I can put it in the back of the baby as well. Worth the money. Wish it was weighted in the sides like the swaddle. Jan 21, 2020

  • We have this and it’s super soft and breathable. He seems to like it. Not sure if it’s helped with sleeping Jan 18, 2020

  • It worked great until my son started rolling over. Once he was rolling he wasn't a fan and didn't sleep well with it on. Jan 01, 2020

  • My daughter used a few times before I learned that weighted sacks are considered unsafe by the AAP Jan 01, 2020

    • Sara B.
    • Rancho Santa Margarita, California

    Overall I feel like it helped getting my LO to sleep, but more because of him being used to wearing it as a routine; not a miracle fix for a guaranteed consistent good night’s sleep. Jan 01, 2020

  • The construction and materials are fantastic. Not sure if I bought this too late in the game (6+ months) but little bit didn’t seem to like it any more than her other sleep sacks. Jan 01, 2020

  • For this when my daughter was 3/4months. Since she cans roll over with the bean sack in the front it cans get uncomfortable. You can also wear the bean sack to the back but she rolls back as well. Dec 30, 2019

    This make transitioning from benign swaddled to arms free SO MUCH EASIER!! I tried several products & this is the only one that worked. Keeps the feeling of your hand on your baby’s chest for comfort. Dec 23, 2019

  • We used this for a few months in the summer. It is nice material and lightweight. Not sure if it really helped with sleep though. Nov 26, 2019

  • I bought this at the babyshow LA. Loved how the side panels “hugged” baby and the top panel was made to feel like moms hand but babies didn’t really feel the difference from other sleep bags. Nov 24, 2019

  • These are super soft and cozy and i loved snuggling my baby in it, but I’ve read mixed reviews on the safety of weighted products & infants, which ultimately led me to discontinue use of the product. Nov 12, 2019

  • I wish they had this sleep sack combined with love to dream. Loved the weight, but daughter also liked the arms up. Once she was transitioned out, this worked great! Nov 06, 2019

    Kept baby warm and didnt have to worry about blankets getting on babys face Oct 30, 2019

  • Nested bean is my favorite baby product. At 3 months my son went from sleeping 2 hour stretches at night to 5 hour stretches. He is now 6 months and sleeping thru the night. I ordered the next size. Oct 12, 2019

  • Didn’t work for us at all- two kids! Oct 01, 2019

  • easy to use, great concept. just didn’t work for our son. he still startled himself awake. Sep 29, 2019

  • I like the double buttons on this sleepsack. I don’t use it as often as I thought I would, but it was a helpful transition out of a swaddle. Sep 19, 2019

  • It hasn't really helped the way it says it will. I just use it as his regular sleep slack for nighttime. Sep 16, 2019

  • We started using that around 6 months. It was a good sleep sack but the weights made no difference on my child's sleep. Sep 14, 2019

  • My baby liked a hand on his chest so this was a good idea. Hard to tell if it improved his sleep length though. Some nights he sleeps longer but not sure it can be attributed only to this sack. Sep 13, 2019

    Perfect for transitioning out of the swaddle! Our baby felt so comforted by the weighted bean. Easy for tummy sleepers too. Helped our son sleep through the night in 3 nights! Sep 09, 2019

  • This reallly helped my restless sleeper Aug 27, 2019

  • Baby feels like your right there while they sleep! The weighted part of the sleep sack really does work Aug 27, 2019

  • It is easy to use and the fabric is nice. I loved the two way zipper and the shoulder snaps. It made putting it on easy. It did not make a difference in my daughter’s sleep though. Aug 26, 2019

  • Awesome sleep sack Aug 24, 2019

  • I first bought this sleep sack after my son was able to roll over. I wasn't ready for him to just be in footed pajamas - I felt like he needed a little more comfort. Now we use it for naps! Aug 13, 2019

  • My son loved this! The weight on the chest was the only way to get him to fall asleep. It did not, however, work for my daughter. Aug 03, 2019

  • Was hoping to use this on my son, but the smallest size was still way too big for him. Jul 17, 2019

  • Excellent for transitioning out of Swaddle!!!! Jul 16, 2019

  • It's a nice material and good quality but it was unfortunately not a miracle worker as far as sleep goes. A lot of people swear this helped their baby sleep better but I have not seen it Jul 11, 2019

  • We used this for a month out of the sleep suit when transitioning out of a swaddle and it helped so much! Although you may not use it a lot, it was worth the purchase for us! Jun 17, 2019
