With consistent use, our products will become a key part of your baby's sleep routine, signaling that it is time to fall asleep! The materials we use in our products are designed to withstand frequent spit-ups and the subsequent multiple washes, as well as your little one’s vigorous kicks and wiggles. The garment’s construction ensures filling stays in place through repeated washes.


To protect the quality of fabric, we recommend washing in cold water, on a gentle cycle and drying using low heat. First and foremost, all of our products have been designed according to the AAP's Guidelines for Safe Sleep.

We ensure that: 1) The swaddle, under intended and unintended use, will never pose any risk of suffocation in a baby's sleep environment, 2) Pellet pockets are sewn strong enough to prevent the poly-beads from escaping, 3) Velcro and zipper ends are not sharp or abrasive to cause the baby accidental harm. We ensure that our products are manufactured with the highest quality fabric, that will withstand multiple washes and be thick enough to pass flammability tests without needing to be treated with flame retardant chemicals.

The temperature in your baby’s room should feel comfortable to an adult in light clothing. The light-weight fabric our products are constructed from ensures your baby will not overheat due to swaddling alone.

The filling density in the weighted parts of the swaddle or sleep sack is kept to the minimum to balance effectiveness and your baby’s safety. However, ensure swaddle is not too tight by slipping your hand between baby and swaddle; it should feel snug but not uncomfortable.• Ensure the Loving Embrace™ is placed on each side starting under infant’s arms down to the thigh.

Do not allow moving up onto infant’s chest.• Ensure the Peaceful Touch™ is always placed on the lower chest and the top edge of blanket covering the baby is always at the chest level, never above your infant’s neck or covering his or her nose and mouth.• Never use swaddle with products with restraints such as car seats, strollers, swings, etc. HOW TO CREATE A SAFE SLEEPING ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR BABY • Do not use any objects such as pillows or soft toys in your infant’s sleeping environment.• Never place your swaddled infant on soft surfaces such as your bed, a couch, an air mattress etc.

As your baby can rollover and suffocate.• Never sleep with your child in an adult bed, an adult can roll on top of an infant and suffocate them.• Place your baby to sleep in an appropriate sleep product such as a crib, cradle, or bassinet.• Use discretion when using any covering on your infant in warm rooms. I recently bought the Nested Bean Zen Sack for my nine-month-old baby.

I wasn’t paid for this review, and did not receive the product for free. Before she was born I decided I would co-sleep and roll with whatever having a newborn brought me.

Considering I have a baby who does not like me to put her down, and this sack claims to mimic a parent’s touch, I figured what did I have to lose. 100% cotton Imported EASY TO USE: Two way zipper system makes midnight diaper changes a breeze.

The adjustable shoulder snaps allows this wearable blanket to grow with your baby and make it the perfect swaddle transition product LIGHTLY WEIGHTED: On the chest, to give the feeling of your reassuring palm. The weighted pad is filled with non-toxic poly beads (same as those used in children’s toys) and was created using physio-therapy standards to give just the right amount of pressure.

Moms report longer sleep in 1-3 nights THICKNESS: The Zen Sack Classic has a TOG rating of 0.5 which means it is breathable for Summer days but still warm and cozy enough for nighttime sleeping MATERIAL: Made from 100% luxuriously soft cotton. Completely washer/dryer safe and BPA, toxin and phthalate free.

And what I love about this sack is the way the shoulders open with snaps and have two settings for height. This combination allows it to completely open up making a diaper change easy or taking it on and off without waking your baby if needed.

I truly believe babies and kids go through many growth spurts and challenges, and sleep horrible sometimes, and better other times. The garment’s construction ensures filling stays in place through repeated washes.

To protect the quality of fabric, we recommend washing in cold water, on a gentle cycle and drying using low heat. I will admit at the time I bought the swaddle I was not concerned about safety.

From my understanding of the product, and the way it felt to me, it was so lightweight it did not occur to me that there could be a safety issue. Since my baby was nine months at the time of purchase and already rolling over and moving around plenty, I was not concerned at all.

First and foremost, all of our products have been designed according to the AAP’s Guidelines for Safe Sleep. A parent’s touch is scientifically proven to soothe and help babies sleep.

Lightly weighted pads extend the gentle pressure of your touch during sleep. Babies fall asleep faster, rest more peacefully, and get longer, healthier sleep.

Designed in partnership with pediatric pulmonologists, the weight of our pressure pads are safe for babies at least 7lbs. Recommended by certified sleep consultants, our products are trusted by leading pediatric hospitals and Ficus across the country to safely soothe babies to sleep.

Thoughtfully designed and rigorously tested, our products exceed industry safety standards by 8 times, provide ultimate breathability and are toxin-free. Medical experts agree: it’s not just the swaddling, the rocking, the lullabies that soothe your baby to sleep.

The Winter line is the warmest option, perfect for cooler climates or A/C in the summer! The fabric has two layers of 100% cotton with a heavy poly-fiber filling in between.

As per physiotherapy standards used, the pressure applied by the lightly weighted parts is 10% of the body-weight of the area covered by them. This gentle pressure, as light as your palm, is just enough to soothe your baby.

Keeping reading for an honest Nested Bean review. In today’s post I’m going to share the best nighttime routine that works for us and a completely sincere Nested Bean Review of one of their popular sleepwear products.

Therefore, this resulted in a lot of late night purchases (Hello, Amazon Prime!) A lot of products were mentioned, the Nested Bean Zen Sack being one of them.

So, one late night in December when Ryan was just 10 weeks old I purchased the Zen Sack from Nested Bean. Not sure if it's my technique, or she just doesn’t enjoy being wrapped tightly like a baby burrito.

The nighttime routine that works for us is first feeding, then bath or wipe down and finally bedtime story. What pajamas consist of is an onesie and the Nest Bean sleep sack.

Check out my complete nighttime sleepwear guide if you want to know what to dress baby in at night for sleep. Sleep sacks are essential for young babies because you don’t want them laying on loose sheets or bedding to reduce the risks of suffocation.

The cotton is great for all seasons, I don’t feel like my baby overheats in this sleep sack. I’ve washed this sack multiple times per week, and it does not pill or get rough.

In addition, the sack still feels as soft and comfy as day one. My answer is yes…in conjunction with a solid predictable nighttime routine.

The weighted center designed to feel as light as your hand on your baby’s chest. One of the things I do when putting Ryan to sleep for the night is to rub those beans in the weighted center lightly in a circular motion.

Since I’ve been using this sleep sack nightly since she was just 10 weeks old, she knows that putting it on is a signal for bedtime. As per physiotherapy standards, the application of weight equivalent to 10% of one’s body weight is considered to add positive or therapeutic pressure to relieve stress and induce calm.

The weight of the center area of our products is calibrated at 2 ounces. This weight is simply meant to mimic the gentle sensation of your palm on your baby’s chest, which at times can be more than 2 ounces.
