Weighted Swaddle FAQ's
Are weighted swaddles safe?
Do sleep swaddles help babies sleep better?
Why weighted swaddles for newborns?
Most newborns love being swaddled, so a weighted sleep sack baby can wear and be swaddled in at the same time is a perfect combo for relaxation and comfort.
Why weighted swaddles for infants?
Weighted swaddles give babies the sensation of being hugged. In addition, the gentle weight naturally reduces cortisol and increases melatonin (the sleepy hormone) and serotonin (the happy hormone), so they can relax. When baby is wearing a weighted newborn sleep sack combined with the swaddle, they are able to calm down and fall asleep faster.
Are weighted swaddle sacks safe for rolling babies?
Once your baby starts to roll over, a swaddle is no longer a safe option. That's why we designed our built-in swaddle so you can gently wrap the swaddle wing around your baby's mid-section and transition them to wearing it with both arms out.
Why do babies sleep better in a sleep swaddle?
Babies sleep better in a sleep swaddle because they are designed to ensure that baby is cozy, has a snug, supported feeling, and controlled temperature. The best part is that parents can relax knowing baby is sleeping in a safe, wearable blanket.
When should babies stop wearing sleep swaddles?
There's no exact age when babies should stop wearing sleep swaddle sacks. It really depends on their comfort level, and many enjoy them well into the toddler stage. Many infants will use a sleep bag while still in a crib and then transition once they're in a toddler bed.
Are weighted swaddles worth it?
Absolutely! The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using sleep sacks as a safe alternative to blankets to keep your baby cozy, comfortable, safe, and secure. In addition, many parents find that using a sleep sack helps their babies sleep more soundly.
Why do sleep sacks not have sleeves?
Sleep sacks are sleeveless to reduce the risk of rebreathing, overheating, and for overall ease of use. Many parents put a lightweight pajama on baby underneath the sack.
What happens when a baby rolls over while swaddled?
A baby who has begun to roll over should no longer be swaddled. It becomes a safety issue because if a swaddled baby rolls over onto their stomach, they may not be able to go back in the other direction. This can become a suffocation risk, so you'll want to pay close attention once your baby starts to roll.
What weighted sack size is best for my baby?
Our Weighted Sleep Sacks come in the following sizes, 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-24 months, and 24-36 months. Sleep Sack sizes are determined by the weight and length of your baby. Our sacks are designed to be longer, so babies have ample room to grow and are able to move their legs and kick comfortably. This extra room makes them a "hip-healthy" product when used as directed.
Is it OK to swaddle newborn at night?
Yes! We recommend swaddling a newborn at night (and nap time!) to help your baby sleep more soundly. A baby "burrito," as swaddling is sometimes referred to, is a great way to put baby to sleep - think of it as a gentle hug. And of course, caregivers should always follow safe sleep guidelines - baby should be placed on their back with nothing in the crib, including toys or blankets.

My son is a wiggler in his sleep. This of course allows movement but aides to calm my son. His first night he slept 6 hours straight. The longest he has slept is 8 hours and he is only 2 months old 👏👏🙏Was this helpful?DBDreamland Baby21 hours ago
