Zen Swaddle by Nested Bean
Being a new mom is hard. I’m not going to try and sugar coat it. Sure, it’s a blessing and miracle, but during those first few weeks its hard to keep that in perspective when you are so sleep deprived.
My second daughter was born just a few weeks ago so I pretty much consider myself an expert in lack of sleep. 🙂
With my first born we were instructed, by one of the many classes we took prior to her birth, to swaddle, swaddle, swaddle! Swaddling has been something moms and dads have been doing for ages. We registered for tons of “swaddling” blankets and when G was born we wrapped her up like a little burrito all the time. There was one thing about using a blanket that was always a struggle though…keeping her little arms tucked inside. One way or another she would find a way to wiggle a hand or entire arm out and then boom!…awake! Time after time we would undo the swaddled blanket and repeat. Exhausting!
My husband was starting to swaddle her so tight that she looked like she was in a baby straight jacket! The blankets were getting bigger and bigger from being stretched out. LOL 🙂 Don’t worry, she wasn’t harmed…more like snug as a bug in a rug!
Prior to Val’s birth the good folks over at Nested Bean contacted me about a new product called the Zen Swaddle. I was pretty excited to try it out. So many new baby items in the past couple of years since my first born arrived.
The Zen Swaddle is a whole new kind of swaddle “technology”.
Its a swaddle with Touch Advantage. What that basically means is the The Zen Swaddle™ is the first swaddle to mimic your touch. Based on the medically proven benefits of simulated touch, its lightly weighted areas on either side and at the center provide the security they feel only in your arms.
With the Zen Swaddle™ you get 2 sizes in 1. A smaller interior pouch keeps your baby’s legs snug during the first few weeks, while the extra long sack offers additional leg room to grow. Made from 100% luxuriously soft cotton for your baby’s tender skin, it is washer and dryer safe.
The Zen Swaddle mimics touch through the use of three lightly weighted areas:
- The Peaceful Touch creates the gentle pressure that a reassuring hand on the chest might
- The Loving Embrace pair is positioned on either side of the baby’s body to give him or her the sensation of being encircled in a caregiver’s arms.
The Zen Swaddle is designed for babies who are 7 to 14 pounds. Additional legroom means each Zen Swaddle is 2 sizes in 1, providing added value through longevity. Made with 100 percent cotton and containing non-toxic filling in parts, the swaddle fastens with Velcro closures. The product has undergone rigorous safety testing at CPSC-accredited labs. The Zen SwaddleTM retails for $39.99 each.

I must say that after using the Zen Swaddle for the past few weeks and I really am in love with it. Its completely different from anything I’ve used in the past and is easy to use. Love how soft it is and the more I wash it the softer it seems to get. A must have for any new mom!
