If your baby is ready to say goodbye to traditional swaddles and ready for arms-out-sleep, it’s time to decide which Dreamland product they should use next. We’re here to help you decide whether purchasing our Dream Weighted Transition Swaddle or Dream Weighted Sleep Sack is the best size-up for your little one!
Dream Weighted Transition Swaddle
Our patent-pending Weighted Transition Swaddle is designed to reduce wake-ups and help transition your baby safely from using our Dream Weighted Swaddle to arms-out sleep. This sleep sack features innovative, 3/4 length gently weighted sleeves that fit snugly to help reduce the Moro (startle) reflex.
The Transition Swaddle comes in two sizes: Small (3-6 Months), for babies who are 12-16 lbs and 23-26 in, and Large (6-9 Months), for babies who are 15+ lbs and 26-28 in. Unlike a traditional swaddle, your baby can move their arms freely and roll over when wearing the Transition Swaddle. Once your baby shows signs of rolling, it is no longer safe for them to be swaddled with their arms in, which is why the Transition Swaddle is the perfect solution to allow for a safe and secure transition out of swaddling and into a sleep sack.
Dream Weighted Sleep Sack
The Dream Weighted Sleep Sack is a perfect fit for babies who do not like being swaddled or have fully transitioned out of swaddling.
Our Dream Sleep Sack comes in several sizes including 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-24 months, and 24-36 months. Finding the right size is determined by the weight and length of your baby (take our size finder quiz here).
Our sleep sacks are designed to be longer, so babies have ample room to grow and are able to move their legs and kick comfortably. The gentle weight is located on the front (or top) of the sack only, and will not restrict movement, so your baby can safely roll, sit or stand!
The Dream Sleep Sack features a reversible neckline that is perfect for babies who like to roll over and sleep on their tummy. If your baby prefers to sleep on their stomach, simply put the sleep sack on backward with the zipper on your baby’s back, and lay them down as normal. Doing so allows your baby to still feel the benefits of the evenly distributed weight to help them feel calm, fall asleep faster, and stay asleep longer.
So there you go!
Now you know everything you need to know in order to decide whether our Dream Weighted Swaddle or Dream Weighted Transition Swaddle is best for your little one.
