Zen Swaddle™ by Nested Bean {Review & Giveaway}

Last night before bed, I wrapped Lucas in the Zen Swaddle, a new swaddle blanket from Nested Bean, a mom-owned company created to find solutions to common parenting problems. I can hardly believe it but it actually made a difference and we had the longest uninterrupted sleep since Luke was born (nearly 5 hours).

Zen Swaddle Review

I'd been using other swaddles but he mostly struggled to get his arms out (and often succeeded). I think the difference is that Zen Swaddle is designed to mimic touch and give babies the sensation that they're being held.

It has three lightly weighted areas—one on top and two on the sides—in the areas my hands would be if I were either cradling him or placing a reassuring hand on his chest.

The idea came to Nested Bean founder Manasi Gangan during the long hours of holding her own younger son. He never slept unless she was holding him and finally, out of desperation, she fashioned what would later be refined into the Zen Swaddle.

I also like that it's designed for arms in or out and has an interior leg pouch making it two sizes in one, so that it grows with your baby.

Aesthetically, it's adorable. The soft white color with green stitching is calm and neutral and the material is 100% cotton and washable. Technically, it's a piece of cake wrap but comes with easy to follow instructions as well.

Zen Swaddle retails for $39.99 and can be found at these select retailers.

Here's a sweet little video with more info:
