The zen sac is great! My little one had no problem transitioning to wearing it. She is 14 months old and had sleeping issues since birth. The sac hasn’t helped with getting better sleep but my daughter loves it soo much she won’t go to bed without it anymore.
It was for my granddaughter and she hasn’t had her baby yet
My twins love the sleep sacks! Ever since using them their sleep has improved tremendously! They went from waking up every 3 hours to finally sleeping more than 5 hours! It did take a few days for it to work but I am so thankful. They now only wake up one time for a bottle and go right back to sleep. No having to rock them or anything!
Wow! We went from being up every 1-2 hours to getting 6 straight hours of sleep (followed by 4 more hours usually) of course, fair warning, it didnt work right away. We had to get her on a routine at bedtime then we FINALLY got sleep. She sleeps so long (and more sound) my husband gets up and checks on her. I'm giving the other one to my sister in law who is due late September
Our little one refused to sleep anywhere other than on top of me or in her swing. The very first night she wore her Sleep Sack, she immediately fell asleep as soon as we laid her down in her bed. She has slept longer and better since wearing these. I highly reccomend!
With this product I thought my twins would sleep thru the night but they don’t they still wake up every 2 hours to feed since there breastfeed babies
My baby was struggling to stay asleep and I was feeling pretty desperate. She had been sleeping in the merlin magic sleep suit but it had stopped being magical for us. I had to sleep next to my baby with my hand on her in order for her to sleep. Knowing that she'd be rolling over soon and the merlin suit wouldn't last much longer anyway, I bought a two pack of these and it was really helpful. I must add though, we also started sleep training within the same several day window, so I can't say for sure what really made the difference, but she's sleeping great at night now. Even after she was sleeping at night, she wasn't napping well, so we started using it for naps too, and she went from 45 to 90 minutes naps. I consider it a good purchase, especially once you can no longer swaddle or put your baby in a merlin suit.
These sleep sacks provided the perfect transition out of the swaddle!
I bought the Zen hoping in hopes that my baby girl would be able to sleep through the night & it really does work! It did however take her about 5 days to get used to it but now she's sleeping for 6 hours straight & I'm forever thankful for that!
I like it more as a blanket. I put it on my 4 week boy and I felt like it swallowed him. The concept is great but it didn't do anything for my baby. We are hoping to use it more during the cold weather.
The Nested Bean products have been awesome for our little one! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Our twins are 3 months old and recently began sleeping through the night, but not on a consistent basis. Our son will fall asleep very easily, but will wake up often throughout the night. Our daughter is very difficult to get to sleep, but stays asleep once she is. She would not fall asleep unless swaddled, and we were worried about her arms being exposed in the sleep sack. But we went ahead and bought the sleep sacks, and since using them with both babies, they fall asleep more peacefully, and sleep more sound throughout the entire night, not waking until the next morning. These have been a lifesaver as first time parents, and we could not be more pleased with the purchase! We plan on using these on a nightly basis!
In this picture in particular my daughter was fighting her nap and didn’t want to go to sleep. So I put her in her sleep sack and tried to relax her in her rocker and she fell asleep almost immediately. They also help her sleep longer stretches throughout the night!
Our baby loves his nested bean sleep sack!
The quality is beautiful, very soft and doesn't peel in the wash. I believe it has made all the difference with my 6 month olds sleep, he is now sleeping through the night woohoo! However it's not a magic sleep bag, I've implemented a better bedtime routine and always make sure to put him down drowsy and not asleep. I definitely would recommend this product.
We started using the sleep sack when we began the takingCara babies sleep program (they suggested using this after 6 months) and our son went from nursing all night in bed with us to sleeping in his own bed/own room with no night feedings for 11-12 hours in SEVEN nights!
The quality of the sacks are great. The material is soft, the two way zippers are really convenient and the buttons make putting it on/taking it off super easy. But the weighted bean made literally ZERO difference for us, which means this was just a super overpriced set of sleep sacks. Our baby (4 months old) didn’t hate it, didn’t love it, didn’t notice it and definitely didn’t sleep any better (or worse). If we hadn’t washed them (in order to try them), we definitely would’ve returned them and got our $57 back.
I am so glad I purchased Zen Sack! My twins are 14 weeks and my daughter has gone from waking up every 3 hours to waking up 5 hours!!! My son has always been a great sleeper but this has just improved his sleep. Mama is happy!! By far the best purchase I have made for my twins
We’ve been using the nested bean zen sack since day 1 of sleeping in her crib around 4.5 months old. We went cold turkey from infant swaddle in bassinet to the zen sleep sack in her crib and she did great with the transition! She is 9 months old now and sleep 12 hours (uninterrupted) a night and takes 2 long naps a day in her zen sack. It’s a must-have.
Bought for my granddaughter who is in hip braces...it is amazing....
Love these. So comfy for my little man.
Great baby gift
Easy to clean. My little girl falls right to sleep and sleeps through the night with these perfect wearable blankets!
The sleep sacks are high quality and well fitted, it's great to have the extra poppers on the shoulders so it can grow with the baby. As for sleeping all night because of the weighted chest - I'm glad it's worked for others but to me its just a cute addition.
I had high hopes, but it honestly hasn't made a difference in better sleep for my 4 month old. Either way, it's a nice sleep sack and we will continue to use them. I do wish the sack was a little longer as well.
We bought one on a whim from reviews that I read online. At the time my baby was 2.5 months and sleeping 5-6 hrs at a time and waking up about 1-2 times a night (she also hated swaddles and was using the halo ones with her arms out). Within the first week she slept ALL NIGHT - like 10-12 hrs (9-9:30 pm to 7-9 am). It was a blessing since I had to go back to work and needed sleep! We now own 3 bc she spits up and doesn’t sleep well without it! It has also (until like last week) kept her on her back since she rolls a lot in her sleep & can end up on her stomach and hates it (and can’t flip back consistently yet). She’s 4.5 months now - we will use these until she’s too big for the largest size!
We started with the Swaddles, loved them! Transitioned to the sacks, loved them even more! They are such a part of our nap/bedtime routines! My twins definitely are attached to their Zen Sacks! ❤️
Love ❤️ The nested bean sleep sacks. They really help my daughter relax and calm down at night and feel like she still close to us when she’s in her crib.
I had started to lose a little faith in the nested bean sack. Our baby did great with the swaddle and it really helped her sleep, and early on in her transition to sleep sack it seemed to work as well. And we were always able to get her to fall asleep easily in it, but as evident from this photo, our baby much prefers to sleep on her belly. For awhile I started trying to put her to sleep without it because it wasn’t keeping her asleep like it used to, and I worried she was too warm with it being summertime. But we’ve found success again by dressing her in short sleeves and flipping the sack around. She rolls over almost immediately when she is put to bed and having the weighted pad on her back instead of her chest has improved her sleep. If your baby rolls like this, don’t give up, the sleep sack can be worn either way!

I feel it’s almost the same as the regular swaddle. My daughter still waking up few times at night. It didn’t really help much.
My kids are in love with these! I have twins and the double deal is great. They are also rolling over already so having the option to wear it in multiple ways and fully unzip/unhook is so helpful!
I love the Nested Bean sleep sacks, my daughter went from waking up 2 times during the night to sleeping through the night in under a week! If she does wake up in the middle of the night she’s now able to put herself to back to sleep on her own. She is able to put herself to sleep when I lay her in her crib where before the sleep sacks I would have to nurse her to sleep or rock her to sleep.
I swear by our nested bean! Helps my little one nap longer instantly.
Really liking this sleep sack! It’s done really well for my four month old son as we transitioned out of the swaddle. I’m note sure if I should should put the bean on his front or back as he falls asleep on his back but 9 times out of 10 he rolls to his tummy to sleep.
With my firstborn a few years ago, I would wish a product like this existed. I’m so grateful to have it now. I got four nested beans to help my new baby girl transition from her Snoo crib to a regular crib. They have helped sooth her a lot.
After only a few day, My twins at 12 weeks old were sleeping right through the night ! Couldn’t be happier :)
Was bed sharing with wake ups every 2 hours before discovering nested bean. Now he sleeps 6 hours straight in his bassinet, wakes up for a feeding (as he's breastfed so he needs one at night) then is out the rest of the night. My energy and sanity thanks you Nested Bean!!
Absolutely love this sleep sack and the happy face in the morning!
We used the Zen Sleep Sac to transition our baby from the Magic Merlin. So far it is working great and he is sleeping 12 to 14 hours a night.

My son would ONLY co-sleep with us until I put him in this! Less than five minutes alone in his pack and play in the sack and he was OUT! He broke out of swaddles since he was about 3 weeks old. Now he’s 4.5 months old and sleeping on his own! I love this product!
We love our zen sacks!!! My twin babies sleep so great with them! Cozy, affordable adorable!!!!!! Great product with wonderful customer service.
E has been able to fall asleep on her own since the Bean has come into her life!
I love this sleep sack! It soothes my daughter and she sleeps in them every night (I have 4 now). Started using them because she was having trouble transitioning to crib. I really think this product is the reason she sleeps peacefully through the night.,A must have for new parents!
The Zen Sack is amazing. Like any other sleep deprived mom that does research on how to help their little one sleep better, I decided to try this not expecting miracles. Within a week our little lady at 6 months old went from waking up every 3 hours to 7 1/2 hours in one stretch. I don’t usually write reviews but this product is truly worth every penny.
She is so much calmer when wearing the nested bean! She usually sleeps better when wearing it and swaddled.
Just the right level of weight to comfort him!
My little one has reflux and was going through the 3-4 month sleep regression and it was terrible!!!!!! Waking at least 10-15 times a night! I purchased the double pack and within a few DAYS of consistently using them for bed time AND ALL NAPS HE WAS SLEEPING NEARLY ALL NIGHT AGAIN!! I need at least 2 more!!! I have to wash them so often because of his reflux (all the spit up) which gives this mama more work. I’ll hopefully be able to order them soon! I love these sleep sacks! Also, I have 3 sisters who are pregnant and I told all of them that they are a MUST for their registries! I plan to buy these for each of them for their shower gifts! I wish I’d have gotten them from the very beginning I now know laying down a strong sleep foundation is KEY for a happy healthy baby and MAMA!
My boy loves his zen sack! He smiles so big when I put him in it. He was already a good sleeper, but I think it’s just a good sleep sac in general. Soft, lightweight (perfect for summer) and so easy to get him in and out of it. Very happy!!
It’s been a lifesaver for our daughter and our granddaughter.
Our Daycare had to stop swaddling arms earlier than we were wanting. Needless to say, naps went from stellar to garbage. I had her in a different arm free swaddle but it still was not cutting it. Once she was in the Nested Bean she was back to self soothing herself to nap and at bedtime. Thanks for being such a life saver!
My daughter was at her wits end with my first granddaughter (she's sooooo cute!) The only way she would sleep at night was if she was held. My daughter said that something needed to change quickly or she was going to crumble. I had read about the sleep sack and thought, well this certainly couldn't hurt. I purchased 2 of the zen sleep sacks one light blue(my favorite color and one with stars as my granddaughters name is Stella) for my daughters birthday and had them sent to her with a gift card saying happy birthday from her favorite "first born"... My daughter had also read about them and was quite willing to give them a try. First night - 4 hours, feeding, 4 hours...my daughter said, this is a fluke Second night 4 hours, feeding, 5 hours....my daughter said, let's see what happens tomorrow night Third night, 4 hours, feeding, 4 hours sleeping.....tada.......!!! My granddaughter has not been out of her sleep sack since!!! She wears them with the weighted portion on her back as she is a stomach sleeper. Made believers out of us!! Thank you, you have saved my daughters sanity and relieved my worry about my daughters sanity..
I love the sleep sack my little one isn’t sleeping better yet but I think that is on me and not the sack. Well made and soft!
We have tried the Zen sack for two weeks now with our 4 month old. We haven’t had any period of sleep more than 3 1/2 hours, which is the same as not using a Zen sack. I’m sure this work for other babies, just not ours. On the plus side, he can’t kick it off like he does with a blanket. So we will keep using them.
She sleeps so much longer in these that my husband has to wake her up to bring her to daycare sometimes! We are not sleeping straight through the night yet but we are well on our way. Note: I tried to start with the medium on our 4.5 month baby in an effort to save some cash and then needed to go with the small for my tiny friend
Our baby boy sleeps soooo much better in his sleep sack! Before we got one, he wouldn’t nap for very long. Last night he slept for six hours straight! He will be three months old tomorrow. We bought two so we can switch them out and have one in the wash.
I bought the two pack zen sleep sacks because they were a good deal in the double pack. My baby loved to be swaddled when she was a newborn but she developed quickly so we had to move on from swaddling as well as move to a pack n play as apposed to her bassinet because she started rolling. She has also slept through the night since she was 8 weeks old and napped regularly through out the day. Once we made the switch she would only sleep for like an hour and then wake in a crying state. So I did some research and came up with this brand and all the reviews sold me the product. I was hoping for something comforting that would be safe for her in this transition. I have been very pleased with the results. The first day of using the sleep sacks, she slept longer and has adapted to sleeping in her pack n play. Amazing product. I’m now considering purchasing the onesie options.
I'm going to be honest, I have no idea if this is making my little one sleep longer or sounder. But I do know that it's the cutest thing I've ever seen, and he is cozy and happy. Worth the money.
My grandson was a bit fussy and couldn't sleep well so I bought these zen sacks. He sleeps through the night now and wakes only once to eat. It's a lifesaver. I'm glad I got two. I just got a new granddaughter who wont sleep through the night, I'm ordering her either the swaddle or the sleep sack for her too. I'm sure it will help her as well. Thank you!!
Our little one loves it. Easy transition from swaddle to arms free. She likes her belly too so this helps being able to use either way. Size was perfect. Really sturdy material. Wish we would have bought the swaddle. Will continue buying their products!
Our son was sleeping pretty good overall but it wasn't consistent and we were still having to get up at least 2-3x a night at almost 5 months old. We started using the Zen sack and now he is consistently sleeping through the night. This a great product and I would definitely recommend trying it!
4 1/2 Month old granddaughter is sleeping great when they use it.
Even though shes a belly sleeper she loves the weighted sac on her chest. Its a comfort, she definitely does not sleep as sound without it!!
These sleep sacks are good quality. Our babies seem to be comforted by the weighted bean. No complaints!
I started my son in the swaddles around 6 weeks old then moved to the sleeping sacks around 10-12 weeks. He sleeps so comfortably and was sleeping 5-6 hours stretches by 8 weeks old. I’ve recommended these products to some of my friends with little ones and don’t know what I’d do without them.
My baby didn’t really take to it and doesn’t take longer naps because of it
We absolutely love the Nested Bean sleep sacks! Baby girl is finally sleeping through the night on a pretty regular basis at 4.5 months! The quality is really great, cute designs on the chickadee, and it is really easy to get her in the sack despite squirming. Recommending this to all my baby mama friends!
This is the second set of sleep sacks we’ve ordered from Nested Bean. Our son wakes less frequently and is able to self soothe better when wearing these.
Miracle worker, no joke! I didn’t believe it would be as great as the reviews made it out to be...but after 2 nights in it, she was sleeping through the night! She is 8 weeks old and has never liked to be swaddled. We’ve tried the Halo sleep sacks and they didn’t work. But something about the weight on her chest, completely changed her sleep patterns. I have told everyone about it!
My daughter loves her sleep sack! It really does help her calm down when she wakes in the middle of the night. Not all of the time, but there is definitely improvement.
The sacks are very soft and have cute prints. I like how they’re roomy which allows my baby to sprawl a bit. Do I think the sack got me the guaranteed better sleep? No. In fact shortly after switching to the sack my daughter went through a serious regression and her sleep was significantly worse for about 10 days. Not the fault of the sack, but it didn’t help one bit getting her to sleep better. I would not buy again for this price as there was no sleep benefit.
My twins LIVE in their Zen Sacks! They love them and I love them because it keeps my twins asleep! It's an awesome sleep cue for them and they always seem so cozy in them. Thank you!
Jett and I love! Our sleep sack He was sleeping better when we would put our hands on his chest, with this sack it puts the right amount of pressure on his chest and he sleeps well. He is 2 months old and when he goes down at night, he sleeps for 5 hours straight, wakes up to feed and then back to sleep for another 4-5 hours. :) We'll be ordering more!!!!
We love these sleep sacks! My baby sleeps like a dream in them! Right through the night!
Unfortunately it didn't work on my 6 month old daughter. She is been sleeping in sack for more than a month now and she is waking up more than before at night. She wakes up every hour at night.
My baby does better in the Zen Swaddle than the sleep sac. He loves to be wrapped up tight! Maybe when he gets a little older hell enjoy the sleep sac
This has been a life saver! She has been sleeping through the night ever since I purchased it! I recommended it to all my friends!
My daughter had a difficult time sleeping alone in the bassinet. We tried a number of things the first 6 weeks but eventually reluctantly had her sleeping with us in the bed. This is something both my husband and I were not comfortable doing long term and knew that once I returned to work it was going to be difficult. I ordered these sleep sacks thinking it was worth trying while we attempted to sleep train at 10 weeks. After about 3 nights she began sleeping better and on her own in the bassinet. She occasionally has a difficult night but we are always able to soothe her back to sleep in the bassinet. I think the weight on the sleep sack is just enough to help her learn to soothe herself with this process. I might order more just so she can have it each night without the constant laundry. If you are struggling to have your baby sleep on their own I think these are definitely worth a try!
Truly worked from night one! We started at about eight weeks old, now at 12 weeks she’s sleeping consistently 6+ hours without waking- and sleeps 12 hours every night. Very happy with this purchase!
I have no qualms about the quality of the product. I bought the two pack nested bean sleepers for my 6 month old. He hated it though, and it didn't help him sleep any better. In fact, I think he sleeps better without it now, ironically. He sleeps on his stomach and his back throughout the night, so when he laid on the weighted part it woke him up. Hopefully it will help other babies sleep better, but it unfortunately did not help mine.
The material is nice and they're made very well, but I don't see how they can be advertised as "weighted,"...which is why I bought them. I was disappointed by that factor alone.
My LO loves his sack. He sleeps 9-12 hours every nights since 12 weeks when we started using it. I have bought 4 of these as he doesn’t cit anymore on the first 2.
These are nice and seem comfortable but we started using these at 8 months and our twins still do not sleep through the night. Maybe if we started from birth with these they would. And they are expensive
Did not make a difference in our little guy's sleep but we still used them as a sleep sack to keep his legs warm.
Our 6 month old started waking up in the night after sleeping well for several months. The zen sac immediately helped! He only woke up once in the night for about two weeks and now back to 10-11 hours! He loves to sleep on his belly, so the sac being reversible is great.
I love the design of this sleep sack. The zipper makes it so easy for nighttime diaper changes. My daughter was waking up in the middle of the night to eat then would not let us lay her back down without her waking. That is the main reason we purchased this sleep sack. While wearing the nested bean sack she no longer does this. It has fixed our problem, however it does not help her self soothe and does not make getting her to sleep any easier.
While I don’t think this is a magic sleep solution, it does help my daughter self soothe at night and sleep for longer intervals. She’s 3 months old and just made it to 12 hours every night!
My son sleeps great with the nested bean products!
Love this! My daughter transitioned with no problem out of the swaddle into this sack.
First couple of times I put sack on my baby she was waking more than usual, not sure why, maybe she was too hot. Since then things got better, she sleeps in the sack the same as she was sleeping without it, waking once to feed, so not sure if the sack improved the sleep, but I do like them and will keep
I love the product!
My twins just wake up once!
My son loves his Nested Bean sleep sack! The cotton is really soft and seems to keep getting softer with each wash. Overall pleased with the product and would recommend. This is my 2nd baby and we’ve tried numerous other sleep blankets. This one worked best for my son who was struggling with sleep training.
Happy Baby- 1st time using the nested bean sack in her crib- sleeping 8-10 hours a night!
The quality of the product is excellent. It is easy to put on and take off. It’s a great idea and design. Hopefully this works well for you. But, it didn’t work for us. Our son would roll over with it on. With the weight in the front and put to bed on his back, he would roll over and the bump would press into his chest and he would wake up. This also occurred when the weight was in the back and he was put to bed on his stomach.
Grant absolutely loves his sleep sack. He is now sleeping in his crib! We can put him down without him fussing! It is a wonderful addition to our bedtime routine.
This little baby can’t sleep without her sack! We originally bought the swaddles for bedtime until she grew out of them. She sleeps every night from 8pm until 6am with zero interruptions. It’s absolutely amazing. She is my third child and the only one to sleep like this. I wish I knew these existed when my other two were born!
I got this for my seven week old who was only sleeping in two hour increments during the night. It took about four days, but since then she’ll sleep in 4 hour increments. It feels so good to be able to get some sleep myself now.
We bought one to transition our 5 month old from the rock n play to the crib because he was waking up 4 or 5 times during the night in the crib, he still doesn't sleep through the night but he only gets up twice rather than 4 or 5 times.
