Product Information

Dreamland Baby is a weighted blanket that baby can safely wear. Our products are designed to help baby relax, fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. The gentle weight is evenly distributed from shoulder to toe, naturally reducing stress and increasing relaxation through deep touch stimulation.

Weighted blankets increase serotonin and melatonin, while decreasing cortisol. Through the power of deep touch stimulation, baby feels calm and is able to sleep in longer stretched.

Our weighted sacks take the soothing, calming comforts of a regular sleep sack and give baby that sensation of being hugged.

The benefits of hugging and cuddling are well-established. When you're hugged, you feel more secure.

Product Use

Many babies see incredible sleep success the first night, while others take up to one week to adjust their sleep patterns. Consistency (nap and bedtime) is key when introducing something new to baby's bedtime routine.

Both! We recommend using Dreamland Baby for all sleep. There is no need to “save” Dreamland Baby for nighttime sleep. In fact, the more consistent, the better. As baby gets use to the gentle weight, she will form a positive sleep association to her weighted sleep sack. Each time she sees Dreamland Baby, it will serve as a sleep cue, signaling that it's time to go to bed.

Yes. The gentle weight is 10% or less body weight and will not restrict movement or weigh baby down. Baby can roll, sit, stand; anything baby can do in a non-weighted sleep sack.

It is safe to use Dreamland Baby with your tummy or stomach sleeper. Baby can roll, sit-up, stand-up, etc (anything baby could do in a non-weighted sleep sack). Dreamland Baby is only weighted on the front (the back is like a regular, non-weighted sleep sack). Baby will receive benefit of feeling calm and falling asleep faster but if baby sleeps exclusively on their stomach they may not receive full benefit of Dreamland Baby throughout the night.

Adults and children have both come to appreciate the soothing, deep-touch pressure that feels like the gentle hug of a parent. Our Dream Weighted Sacks and Swaddle offers a safe, gentle option for infants who are between 0-22 months old. With a carefully crafted design that rests weight only on the front of the blanket, the Dream Weighted Sacks and Swaddle encourages back and side sleeping for more restful, rejuvenating bedtime for your little one.

Weighted baby blankets work by providing sensory integration, a therapeutic practice that helps sleepers focus on sensory experiences, like the warmth and comfort of a blanket. The deep-touch pressure provided by the Dream Weighted Sacks and Swaddle can help soothe anxiety and encourage the body’s self-regulation for calming slumber. The 100% soft, natural cotton of our Dream Weighted Sacks and Swaddle provides overall temperature regulation of the fabric. Each one is created with gentleness and convenience in mind, which includes two-way zipper for quick and easy diaper changes during those long nighttime hours.

Enjoy the science of deep-touch pressure and its comforting effects with the quality of materials and designs that make for safe, non-toxic products. Each Dream Weighted Sacks and Swaddle has the potential to increase serotonin and melatonin in the body for longer, happier slumber, whether it’s in the middle of the night or the middle of a daytime nap.

Absolutely. Sleep training is the process of helping a baby learn to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night. Dreamland Baby can be used in any of the three most common sleep training methods; the cry it out approach, the no tears approach or the fading approach. Consistency is a key element of all three approaches, using Dreamland Baby for naps and nighttime sleep can make it an integral part of the sleep training approach.

The Moro Reflex or startle reflex is usually a response to a loud noise, a sudden movement or the sensation of falling. The Moro reflex starts at birth and lasts for most babies until between 4 and 6 months. There is no way to prevent the Moro reflex but there are ways to help calm a baby experiencing Moro reflex. Dreamland Baby's gentle weight in combination with the swaddle wing helps to recreate the womb environment, helping your little one feel a sense of security. This helps soothe babies that are experiencing this startle reflex. Leading to your little one feeling calm, falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. We have support articles on Moro reflex; here, here, & here.

Dreamland Baby is designed to withstand frequent washing. For longest life of the product, we recommend washing in cold water, on a gentle cycle and tumble dry on low heat or lay flat to dry.

Product Safety

Yes! As a mom of four, safety was my # 1 consideration during the development of our wearable weighted blanket. Dreamland Baby was developed in partnership with pediatricians, NICU nurses and certified sleep consultants. We pulled research from a clinical study demonstrating weighted blankets are safe weighted blankets are safe for newborns, significantly increase calm feelings and improve sleep patterns. Our products are safety certified, have passed all Consumer Product Safety Commission standards, doctor approved, and the International Hip Dysplasia Institute acknowledges the Dreamland Baby Weighted Swaddle as a “hip-healthy” product when used as directed.

Yes, Dreamland Baby is made of a light weight, breathable 100% cotton fabric. The inner beads do not affect how hot or cool baby feels- this is dependent on the fabric. Our products are designed to be worn year round in both warm and cool climates.

TOG is short for "thermal overall grade." The TOG rating determines thickness of the fabric. The higher the TOG rating, the warmer the garment is. Typical TOG rating for sleep sacks varying between 0-6. Ranging from a very thin cotton to a super warm fleece fabric. Dreamland Baby has a TOG rating of 0.6. This is on the "lighter" side, meaning our weighted sleep sacks can be used year round in both warm and cool climates. The TOG rating of 0.6 can be used as a guideline for parents to determine what to pair with their Dreamland Baby depending on the and the time of year and the temperature inside baby's nursery. For example, the Dreamland Baby could be paired with a onesie in the summer or paired with warm, long sleeve pajamas in the winter. The TOG rating should be used as a guide but every baby is different. It is the caregivers responsibility to monitor baby's temperature and ensure baby does not get too hot or too cold.

Baby's safety is always the responsibility of baby's parent or caregiver. Always place baby on their back for sleeping. Always ensure no part of the garment interferes with the baby's breathing or cover the nose or mouth. Remove swaddle wing when baby shows signs of rolling over or breaking out of the swaddle, whichever occurs first. Never leave detached swaddle wing near baby. Ensure proper fit: baby's head and/or arms should not slip through neck and/or arm holes. Keep away from fire.
