Our founder, Tara Williams developed Dreamland Baby after she couldn't find a weighted blanket her 6-month old could safely wear.
The gentle weight is 10% or less body weight and does not restrict movement. Baby can roll, sit-up, stand-up, etc anything baby could do in a non-weighted sleep sack. Our weighted sleep sacks are safe for infants who are rolling, sleeping on their back, side or tummy.
Weights of each size:
0-6 mo contains 0.8 lbs of beads, indicated for babies 8 lbs+
6-12 mo contains 1.5 lbs of beads, indicated for babies 15 lbs+
12-22 mo contains 2.0 lbs of beads, indicated for babies 20lbs+
Age Range for Use:
Birth (8 lbs+) to 22 months.
Dreamland Baby is designed from a lightweight fabric with a TOG rating of 0.6. This is on the "lighter" side, meaning our weighted sacks can be used year round in both warm and cool climates.
Designed in partnership with Pediatricians, Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) nurses and Certified Sleep Consultants. Reviewed by Pulmonologists.
The Dream Weighted Sack & Swaddle is acknowledged by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as a “hip-healthy” product when used as directed.
Backed by Science:

This study showed positive findings for toddlers (age 2-5) with and without developmental disabilities when using a weighted blanket to improve sleep patterns.
