Our little girl was sleeping fairly OK before buying this swaddle, but would stir quite frequently in the night. She now sleeps a solid 6 hours before waking to feed and she sleeps soundly. The material is incredibly soft, and we love how easy it is to use. We also love the grow option with the two leg pouches.
I really loved the swaddle and I think it works well, my only complaint is we’ve only had it a few months and the Velcro barely sticks anymore as well and there are about 4-5 wholes in different spots near the seam
I would like to order another, but not sure if it’s worth it
The Zen Swaddle Premier made it possible for my daughter and now son, to fall asleep without jerking awake. Thank you!
Amazing. Sleeping through the whole night!
It’s a nicely made swaddle, and very soft. I have a very active sleeper baby, and I really wanted this to work for my little one, but she’s been able to wiggle her arms up and out and she’s even shimmied the swaddle up over her face during a nap once. SO if you have an active sleeper and you’re thinking of trying this out for that reason, just here to say that this swaddle didn’t help that for us.
We love the swaddle!!! Our daughter is excited to sleep in it and assumes her swaddle position so we can wrap up the little burrito. This photo was taken just after being swaddled. She was asleep 5 minutes later and slept for 5-6 hours!!!!! Best purchase we have made as new parents.
I like the swaddle the only thing is my son is hot in nature so even though its bamboo material he still sweats in it.
If I had to write a review for a single item I bought as a new parent it would be for this swaddle. My daughter loves it and so do I! We have been able to Enjoy many good nights sleep!
Awesome item. The light weight seemed to bring peace and comfort to my daughter during naps and bedtime. I was concerned about the weight before purchasing but it’s not heavy and just right. Highly recommend
It's so cute and soft! I love the idea of it. I think my child is too active. He kicks off the weighted portion in about 5 minutes and then he is just is like swaddled in a normal way. I ordered the other styles of swaddles because it looks like he won't be able to kick off the weighted bit and the other swaddle has a zipper for fast night changing this one does not so I pop his feet out and tuck it under his back like I do his pjs when changing him. I paid extra for the bamboo material cause my little man gets sweaty easy. I do really love the bamboo fabric. It's so soft and he doesn't get sweaty
The Zen Swaddle is outstanding! Our 1 month old’s sleep has improved tremendously. Once our little guy is swaddled, he's out within minutes and stays asleep. Thank you Nested Bean!
I started using this with my 9 week old baby while traveling. My baby started sleeping longer stints in her bassinet than without it. The fabric is soft and weight isn’t too heavy. Baby can still sneak her hands out but has used them to soothe and fall asleep.
Absolutely love this! After the first couple of nights, my 6 week old slept for 6.5 hours without waking up. It also calms him down when he’s fussing or crying. This swaddle is magical!
Love it, but wish there was a bottom zipper for easier night changes.
Our little guy wasn’t a “bad sleeper” to start with but we still decided to give this a try. He moves his arms a lot so fully swaddled did not work as he would pull the fabric up too close to his face. It also doesn’t seem to make a difference with how much he sleeps, but again, he was already a pretty good sleeper.
The swaddle doesn’t have any stretch, like at all….which I feel is needed to get a good enough snug swaddle so the babes don’t get their arms out and wake themselves up! Bums me out because I was pretty stoked to try it out!
Absolutely loved the premium nested bean. We actually received one as a baby shower gift and loved it soooo much we purchased a second one. Game changer for the night time
The material is lightweight; it would be nice if it was a bit more substantive. And it sometimes is pretty loud and even difficult to unwrap baby. It’s nice though that their lower half is below the swaddle, which allows easy access for mid-night diaper changes.
I like this swaddle and appreciate that my son will be able to grow into it. The “soft” Velcro is a big plus. However, the weighted bean aspect of this swaddle seems to make no difference whatsoever in helping my son settle or sleep longer. I like the product but would not re-purchase or give as a baby shower gift.
To be honest, I was a bit hesitant on if it would work or not… you know how it goes with a baby, sometimes things work sometimes they don’t…. I am happy to say My lil boy loves it!!! He’ll be two months on the 18th. we wrapped him in it one night he was being so fussy, and bam! He was chill and stared at the twinkle lights we have In Our room for a solid 30 minutes before he fell asleep on his own. I have to get up early with my other two kids for school, with this swaddle He sleeps for a solid 4 to 5 hours a night with it on. Which helps mama get some solid rest. What I love most is he can easily get out of the swaddle but still be calm. I cannot wait to try the pajamas! Excellent product, I will for-sure be purchasing more.
Our 7-week old had just started sleeping 4hr stretches and once we tried our Nested Bean swaddle he jumped to 6+ hours a night! It's very soft and we like that he can use it with one or both arms out as well as fully swaddled. He is now 2-mos and likes to have an arm or two free and this swaddles seems to comfort him easily.
We love it so much. Our baby is a gassy and crabby girl. With the weighted swaddle it puts just the right amount of weight on her belly.
We went through a numerous amount of swaddles for our infant and finally found the Zen swaddle. It provides a little bit of weight on the chest and sides to make the baby feel hugged and secure. The material is super soft as well. I had an issue with a part of the Velcro and contacted customer service who was very prompt and helpful to help us solve the issue. This is also my husbands favorite swaddle for the baby. I put a drop of lavender on the chest part and the babies off to a better sleep.
Soft material. Baby doesn’t sleep better in it.
I loveeee our zen swaddle! Our girl is getting increasingly more sleep and so is this exhausted mama! It used to take an hour of holding her before she was asleep enough to lay her down, and then she would be up an hour later ready to eat… Now it takes about 20-30 minutes counted after the feed and then straight to bed! She’ll sleep for her 4-5 hours at a time instead of 2! So happy I’ll probably buy a different type for when she’s a bit older/bigger!
We haven’t noticed a difference in our little ones sleeping pattern. It’s been a week so far- maybe she needs more time to adjust? Or it’s just not for her? But the material is nice!
My LO loves the feeling of being hugged tight by these swaddles!
Extremely soft and breathable fabric, my one month old sleeps much more soundly in this swaddle than others! The gently weighted sections are so nice as well, it makes a big difference.
I bought it for my new coming grandbaby, my daughter loves it, but hasn't been able to use it yet.
My newest little grandson loves his nest swaddle. I think he likes the little added weight that makes him feel safe, secure and nestled in mama's arms!
The Velcro ripped. Second one to do this. First I bought one on amazon and then directly from source. Both are ruined
This one was a gift but I have the same one and I love it. The only thing is I wish Velcro wasn’t so loud coming off. The recipient had no idea it was from me because she missed the gift note. I didn’t like that I had to ask her to make sure she got the package.
Baby loves it, I love it, it’s the best swaddle that we’ve tried so far. The bamboo fabric is super soft and my baby sleeps better.
He sleeps so well in his zen swaddle!
I adore this swaddle! It was the magic trick with our first and did the same for our second. Both were sleeping 2-3 hours at a time and immediately switched to 7 hours once they moved to this swaddle. We got this second one because I had lost the first one between babies. I love how soft the material is on this one but it’s way too stretchy. The older fabric was much firmer and easier to use as a swaddle. This would be perfect as a sleepsack, but my little busts out of the swaddle all the time.
Helps us get our baby girl down for naps within minutes she is fast asleep! Great product!
I love how soft this sleep sack is.... that being said my little one can wiggle her arms out of the bottom of the Velcro part leading to her waking easily. This product hasn’t made laying her down in bed any easier or helped her sleep better than just a normal sleep sack.
Love how light weight and soft the swaddle is the only down side is there is no way to change the baby with out completely unswaddling him.
Love it! My daughter sleeps so much better! I'm not waking up every few hours anymore. It's so amazing!
I didn't want to be biased and believe the hype so I waited a fair amount to post this review. I know with babies it is a hit or miss which products they will like or not. The nested bean swaddle does exactly what it is suppose to do and my baby loves it. She sleeps so much better from the very first day. We tried the traditional swaddles, which were fine for the first 2 weeks. After that we tried numerous other swaddles with no succes. She kept wiggling(moving all over the bassinet like a worm) making lots of noises. Now she actually sleeps like a baby and gets good stretches of sleep. I wish I learned about it sooner. Thanks Nested bean, I will be buying other products.
Our newborn loves this! So far, it’s the only swaddle he will sleep in - which means we get more sleep too!
It’s ok. Velcro is loud so always wakes baby up. It tends to ride up on him which makes me nervous. We didn’t see any difference between this and other swaddles.
Our baby boy wasn’t sleeping in his bassinet until we got the Zen Sleep Sack — now he falls asleep quickly and stays asleep until we wake him to feed him. It’s been a life saver!
My daughter loves it! Fits great and she has room to grow in it.
I’m so glad I ended up purchasing the Zen Swaddle! My son runs hot so the soft bamboo material is great and it has the perfect amount of stretchiness so easy to put on. I love it can last for many months as well. My baby does not escape this one and sleeps great.
Can’t believe the magic of this swaddle. My baby was cooing and smiling while being swaddled and is sleeping like a pro! I wish I knew about the Zen products a little earlier. Highly recommended for first time parents!
Keep getting asked to review my purchases but still haven't received them so my 3 star review should be a 0 star review. I appeciate we're in a pandemic and that things may take longer to arrive but stop sending emails desperately trying to endorse your product when you haven't even checked it has got to me.
This print is adorable! I love the lighter fabric. It’s more breathable than other swaddles I have tried. My little boy sleeps more soundly with this swaddle.
Cute print! I love the lighter fabric. My little boy sleeps more soundly with this swaddle.
Super soft and seems nice and cozy. I haven’t used it yet because my baby isn’t here at the moment. But when she’s born I’ll be able to give more detail
My granddaughter used these two years ago and they where her parents sleep salvation as well as hers. Now with my grandson they went directly to the nested bean swaddle and he is almost sleeping through the night at 6 weeks . I love these they are such an amazing swaddle. Peaceful slumber to all and to all a good night.
We love his swaddle so far. It seems to of helped my 3 week old to sleep longer stretches and we much prefer this swaddle with arms then any other swaddles we used (which was a lot). I personally don’t like the Velcro on this swaddle though. It’s very Noisey and can be difficult to undo during night changes. That’s it’s only flaw though.
My 3 month old absolutely loves his nested bean swaddle. Sometimes you can barely get it on him and hes already soothed and asleep. He sleeps the entire night. We 10/10 RECOMMEND IT!
We absolutely love these nested bean swaddles. It was how I got my son to sleep through the night and now with my second she loves them too. They provide her with the comfort she needs when she can’t be sleeping in my chest ! I can’t recommend these enough
AMAZING!! Baby was up all night since being home from the hospital for a week. First night in her swaddle and only woke up 3x to eat.
I was super eager to get this!..however my son breaks out of it and when I wake up to check in him it’s over his face cause he breaks out at the bottom. I have tried and tried but have been unable to get it to where he can’t get out of it.
It made swaddling easier that's for sure. We did start using this around his 3 month sleep regression so I can't give an accurate review because of that.
Love it great quality material. Beautiful design. The only thing is i find it comes loose fast where the shoudlers are. I hsve a halo sleepsac and i love the was it fits on the shoulders area .. a tiny bit disappointed
This is an amazing swaddle, compared to the classic one, this bamboo one is much lighter yet warm enough for my baby, and extremely soft and excellent quality. My baby loved this and wore it until about 4 months until he kept fighting the swaddle, I also used the swaddle for a while until my baby transitioned out fully, so I did the wrap around the waist with one arm out, and eventually both but found by month 5 my baby is too tall now for the swaddle and the legs kept coming off but I certainly used tremendous mileague on this, and have many products from Nested bean from the early swaddles, to now the wearable blanket (the sac), and bought some onesies and pj's as well! I love this company! The products are of high quality and not too crazy expensive, if you can grab an event when they run sales!
6 week old daughter went from sleeping 4 hours a night to 7 in just 2 sleeps!
Not very useful. The baby doesn’t like it somehow.
Great product that makes nights easier
My baby isn’t here yet but I am already pleased with my purchase. The fabric is super soft and feels so cool and comfy. Really great quality. I think my daughter will like it when she arrives in a few short weeks! Can’t wait to try it out!
Love it. My baby falls asleep right away with it. I used it with my first born as well and I'm going to gifted it to a friend that is expecting.
Wonderful product! Definitely noticed longer stretches of sleep (from 5 hours to 7-8 hours within a few days). Love the bamboo material for summer sleeping. Highly recommend.
Gave it gas a gift and was told the baby loves it!
I think it would work well if your baby can stay put in the swaddle but unfortunately our son couldn’t because he’s a little Houdini.
I ordered it awhile ago, called customer service because it hadn’t arrived yet. She was amazing and got it out to me next day! It has been a game changer in our daughters sleep. Before she refused to let us put her down to sleep and now she’s such a good sleeper for only being one month. I have recommended this to all of my friends with babies!
Amazing!!! on the third day using it my baby sleep for 6 hours streight. Is been a month now and she still sleeps throught the night.
She slept through the night
Would be a vast improvement if the foot area opened up with maybe a zipper so we could change a diaper without undoing the entire swaddle.
It was great in theory. Just too loose so my baby always found a way out of it.
We purchased a few cheap swaddles prior to our daughter being born. I had my eye on this one if the others did not work out after seeing all of the great reviews. We received this swaddle as a gift shortly after bringing her home and it is her absolute favorite. We have retired the others and only use this one. She sleeps so well that we have to wake her up for night time feedings. You won’t regret buying this swaddle.
Love our Nested Nean swaddle! Our baby went from sleeping 4 hour stretches to 7 hour stretches within 3 days of using it.
It has worked wonders for my colicy baby.
My son co-slept with us from birth to 3 months I got the swaddle and he has been in his own crib for the last month! All night ! It’s the best $40 I ever spent in my life! I 10/10 recommend !!!
LOVE the quick shipping... especially in the covid-19 mess where everything is delayed. It was such a peace of mind to know something that we would hope could help us all sleep would be arriving so soon. It helped us in the first night and definitely helps calm our colicky baby. Thank you!
Gift for my daughter’s first child due April 30th.
The first night our 12-week-old twins wore these, they went from 2-3hrs of sleep to a full 6 hours! Since then, the sleep duration has varied from about 4-6hrs at a stretch. Thank goodness!
Love love love our nested bean swaddle. I have both the original zen and the premium. I actually prefer the original because the material is less stretchy and my little one can’t move her arms around in it as much, but I tend to put her in her premium more often because I appreciate the natural/green ingredients it’s made of.
First of all of love the pattern on this swaddle! It’s so cute! I do love penguins. Secondly, the fabric is soft and lightweight. Thirdly, I like that there’s an option for arms in or out on the swaddle as my son just started rolling over. However, it did not help my baby sleep. He was actually harder to put back to sleep when using this swaddle so we had to stop using it. I was really wanting to love it but it didn’t work for us.
This is a good product--good quality, and I see the appeal for those babies who love the swaddle, but my little guy prefers to have his arms near his head, so I ended up getting a different swaddle brand. However, I will be purchasing a nested bean transition outfit/pajama when he's a little older.
I purchase as a gift and baby hasn’t arrived yet
It works great, however, I wish it had a zipper on the bottom for diaper changes. I have to undo the whole thing for a diaper change....
My son is 3 weeks old and we’ve been using the zen swaddle since he was 5 days old, he sleeps great and falls asleep on his own nightly, after bath and a massage with some nighttime lotion we put him into his swaddle and feed him then once he lays down he’s asleep within 5 minutes. He sleeps for 4-5 sometimes 6 hours at a time! We LOVE our nested bean!
Love it cant wait till grandbaby here to try it out.
Grandbaby not born yet, but can't wait to try it out.
I was really hoping this swaddle was going to work but unfortunately it just didn’t. My little one was able to kick out of the weighted part so in the middle of the night his legs were out of the swaddle. I think if there was extra Velcro or something for the weighted part that goes up first it might have worked better. And he would get really hot in the swaddle which I thought it was supposed to help with temperature. I’m going to get the newest swaddle to see if that helps him!
This is a perfectly weighted and very pretty butterfly swaddle that successfully stops the startle reflex from waking my new granddaughter throughout her sleep. At first she is upset having her arms restricted, but she settles pretty quickly and often sleeps well, longer, and deeper. Enjoying having this product.
He loves this!!! He is 7 weeks old and wakes up once in the night. It’s like he knows when it’s bed time once the swaddle goes on and falls asleep so fast! One of the things I use most for my baby ❤️
He loves his zen swaddle! He is now getting at least 6-7 hours of sleep instead of waking up every two like before. I had to get two when one was in the wash! I definitely would recommend.
