Weighted Swaddle FAQs
What is The Cuddle Effect™—and how can a weighted swaddle trigger it?
The Cuddle Effect is a proven metabolic response that babies experience when they are held, that triggers relaxation and well-being, improves sleep and promotes healthy development. Research on Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) shows that babies experience the Cuddle Effect when they feel gentle pressure in the places you naturally hold them. Nested Bean weighted swaddle blankets are designed with gently weighted Cuddle Pads™ that calm like your embrace to reduce wakeups from the startle reflex and promote the Cuddle Effect.
Which size weighted swaddle is best for my baby?
To determine the right size for the newborn weighted swaddle product you are considering, check our size chart. Your baby should not be below the minimum weight and should have at least 2-3 inches to grow before growing past the maximum height.
What’s the difference between the Classic swaddle line and Premier swaddle line?

Can I wrap the Zen Swaddle® Premier with arms free?
