Holding a brand-new baby is high on our list of very favorite things, and being held is even higher on your baby’s list – some babies just plain can’t fall asleep unless they’re being held. And for good reason: a newborn is accustomed to the warmth and darkness of the womb, so it can be tough to relax out in the larger, colder outside world! However, no matter how much you love holding your baby, your arms are needed for other purposes on occasion… and sometimes, you might even want to get some sleep yourself.
The Nested Bean Zen Swaddle Blanket with Touch Advantage is designed to bridge those nighttime and naptime hours when you can’t be there every minute to hold your baby: cleverly-placed weights imitate the feeling of being held, so your baby can get to sleep! The “Peaceful Touch” in the center of the swaddle provides gentle pressure on baby’s abdomen, mimicking the feel of your hand laying on his chest; “Loving Embrace” pads snuggle your baby on either side, to simulate being held. Velcro holds the Zen Swaddle securely together so babies can’t kick out of their swaddle and wake up.
And because your baby will want to sleep in a swaddle for the first few months of his life, but he’ll be growing fast, the Nested Bean Zen Swaddle is designed to grow with him! A smaller interior pouch holds newborns in snugly, and a longer sack section offers additional leg room as your baby grows. The Zen Swaddle is made with super-soft 100% cotton, with an adorable chick embroidered in leaf green, and with gray trim. Suitable for babies weighing 7-14 pounds.
Soft, comfortable, easy to use
I got this for my then 2 month old when she was having some fussy nights. It did help her to settle and sleep for a bit longer. It is very soft to the touch and comfortable for my little one. Both of my children liked being swaddled so this worked great with my second.
I love this swaddle! We have tried all of the various brands and this one really sets itself apart in both design and quality. The fabric is really lovely and washes beautifully (our other readymade swaddles all got stiff and pilled). Best of all - it really truly works and has helped our fussy 4 month old. We started using it arms-in but now that she can roll we have switched to arms-out. This is going to be my go-to gift for all new moms!
