Are weighted sleep sacks for babies safe?
The benefit of a sleep sack is that they are a comfortable and safe alternative to blankets, which should never be used in a crib. When used properly and sized correctly, wearable blankets keep your little one warm without overheating, which can be a risk factor for SIDS. Learn more about sleep sack safety here!
When can you start using a weighted sleep sack?
Our weighted sleep sacks are designed for newborns through toddlerhood. Once your baby starts rolling over on its own or is breaking free of the swaddle, it's a good idea to introduce the sleep sack. Be sure to review or size chart to determine the best time to size up. Learn more about the right time to use a sleep sack here!
What does a weighted sleep sack do?
Sleep sacks help regulate your infant's body temperature, which keeps them from being too cold or too hot and makes their sleep just right! A sleep sack also eliminates the need for extra blankets, which according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), helps keep your baby's sleep-space safe. A weighted sleep sack goes one step further by applying gentle pressure that helps your baby feel calm, fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Can a baby sleep on its stomach with a weighted sleep sack?
Yes! The evenly distributed weight allows your baby full movement to sit, stand and roll over while wearing the sleep sack. Also, our weighted sleep sacks are reversible. So, if your baby is a tummy sleeper, you can simply put the sleep sack on backward, so they still benefit from the gentle weight. Learn more about stomach sleep safety here!
Do sleep sacks make babies sleep better?
Sleep sacks work because they keep your infant safe, warm, and comfortable. Our Weighted Sleep Sack applies deep pressure stimulation so your little one feels like they are getting a gentle hug which may help improve the quality of their sleep.

How should a sleep sack fit?
You'll want to size your sleep sack based on your baby's weight and height. For safety reasons, they should never be too loose, particularly around the neckline and arm holes. Our products fit true to size, and we do not recommend using the weighted sleep sack until your baby has met the minimum weight requirements. Learn more about sizing and fit here!
Are weighted sleep sacks worth it?
What should a baby wear under a sleep sack?
Your baby can wear clothes under the swaddle sack. However, it is not absolutely necessary. Many parents use a onesie or lightweight pajama, but it depends on the temperature in the room. To avoid the risk of SIDS, you never want baby to overheat while sleeping. Our weighted sacks have a 1.2 tog so that they can comfortably wear them year-round.

So I love the weighted swaddle. I finally bought it when my babe was 3 months old, but I should have gotten it sooner. He was waking several times a night after being well fed just needing comfort; the swaddle changed that, he now is able to remain asleep after he has his middle-of-the-night bottle, which for me means EVERYTHING. The only things I don't love are the fabric used for the swaddle wings, specifically the right wing: its not as soft as I would like it to be since it's going directly on the baby's body. I also wish that there were small and large sizes rather than a 0-6 1 size fits all, mostly because my baby is a large 3-month-old: he's already 16lbs but isn't rolling just yet but I have to transition out of it since he's outgrowing it and I just bought it! I'm trying the transition swaddle to see if he does okay with arms out. these cons do not outweigh the pros of the product so if you're on the fence, just buy it!Was this helpful?DBDreamland Baby21 hours ago

I received this as one of my baby shower gifts and was eager to try. I put it on my 2 week old, and quickly took it off as she was miserable. A couple of weeks later, I tried it again after she kept waking up due to the startle reflex. After 1 night, my daughter was sleeping 10pm-5:30am without waking up. Now she is 10 weeks old, still wearing the sack, and sleeping 10pm-9am. I will never stop recommending this sleep sack and already bought her the next size up!!!Was this helpful?DBDreamland Baby22 hours ago
Wow, that's a great stretch of sleep!! So glad you gave it another try!
