Although this is a lovely sleep sac - soft material and easy zippers - it made zero difference in our daughters sleep quality and duration. We’ve been using it for a few weeks now and she is still waking between 7 and 10 time’s a night (at almost 6 months of age). For the price a lovely sac but did not impact quality of sleep at all.
Didn’t help my 3 month old sleep better at all, and we tried for a full month before writing a review. Just ended up being an expensive sleep sack.
Great quality fabric! No change in my girl's sleep though.
The quality of the material is exceptional, so soft for baby and the snaps are great and easy to use.
My 5 month old settled faster and stayed asleep longer from the first night using the sleep sack.
Really like it do not know if it helps my granddaughter sleep more but it is wonderful quality material and we are very happy with it
My son is five months old and we purchased when transferring to a crib form a rocknplay. He does sleep longer and more soundly when wearing!
Unfortunately I didn’t notice any difference in sleep with these sleep sacks...
The one night I didn’t have one these on my baby girl she woke up after only sleeping a few hours, with one she sleeps 6-8hrs regularly. :)
This product does absolutely nothing for my baby. She hates it
Love this the first night she gave me 6 hours and now after a couple weeks she is usually sleeping from 8:30 until 6 am or so! Wish I would have had this with my other three kids.
Love the zen sack! I think Carly loves it even more- perfect for hot or cold temps and allows her to move around still without ya worrying about a blanket to keep her warm.
These are so cute and so soft. The babies are able to still play with their feet when they are awake and they sleep great!! I would highly recommend these.
I wouldn’t say it helped my little guy sleep better right away. But after three weeks of use he has skipped one of his feedings and we are down to waking up only once through the night!
Love the material. I wish it was tighter on the sides so the weight didn’t move as much and had two zippers so I didn’t have to unzip all the way to change dipper.
I LOVE these products! I used the swaddle sack around week 8 to 4 months. Then 4 months to my almost 6 month old we use the sleep sack as part of naps and bedtime. It made a huge difference at nights. She would 4-5 hours. If she didn't have it she would be up every 2 hours. She's sleep through the night now! I can't imagine what we would have done without it.
Honestly it seemed to work for the first couple of weeks then my little one refuses to sleep. I’m sure my little one is just difficult but I tried.
My 1yr old has worn these all his life and he sleeps all night long in them. We only trust his sleep to Nested Bean.
I love these! I’ve found them to be well made with quality materials. I bought the smaller size and bought the larger size when my soon outgrew the smaller one
We got these sleep sacs for our twin boys and we love them.
My baby sleeps like a dream! These are the best sleep sacks!
The photo shows her waking up happy and well-rested in her Zen sack. I love it, too. I don't have to worry about her kicking blankets off, and Zisel knows when the sack goes on that it is time to sleep.
This sleep sack is made beautifully, it is excellent quality and the material is super soft. My babies loved them! Although I will say this sack was not the 'miracle' sack that lots of other parents claimed it was. While I would say it helped my babies to sleep a bit longer it did not make them sleep through the night. I would recommend this sack to other parents as it was somewhat helpful, but don't expect a miracle!
This didn’t work for us. Too bad we’re still trying to get a good nights sleep. Some babies are just not good sleepers. This is my fourth child and the only one who hasn’t slept very well so I can’t really complain.
I am actually still using the Nested Bean Swaddles, but loved them so much I wanted to go ahead and get the sleep sacks for our upcoming transition! Our little girl sleeps so much better in her Nested Bean than any other swaddle!
The Zen Sack has allowed my sweet boy to get 6-7 hours before his first feeding and then immediately back to sleep!
It took a few days to transition from a swaddle blanket to the sleep sack, but works so well! It helps him get to sleep on his own! No more rocking and bouncing until he falls asleep!
I don’t normally write reviews but this product is absolutely worth a 5 Star review. I’m a new mother that used to love sleeping. Before I purchased the nested bean zen sack I was waking up 4 to 5 times a night and it also took me 1 to 2 hours to get her to fall asleep. The first night I used the sack she fell asleep within 15 minuets and slept all through the night and didn’t wake up until 8 the next morning. I was skeptical but then I happened the following night, then a week and now a month. Every once in awhile she may wake up once but not nearly as much as she used to. We are now on a great bedtime routine. I have recommended these to all of my friends. I have to thank nested bean for mine and my baby girls sleep. This is truly an amazing product.
My baby girl is 3 months old. I love the material. She seems like she's very comfortable in them and she sleeps so good. Sleeps almost all night long. Wakes up once during the night for feeding and diaper change. That's with us having to wake her up most times.
I was looking for a miracle I think. With all of the other raving reviews of their babies sleeping right through the night the first time they tried it! My baby was waking up 10-20 times a night, for really no apparent reason. Nothing changed when we started using this. Although sleep hasn't improved, I will say I like th wearable blanket aspect of it, and it's an easy zip for diaper changes. I continue to put my little one in it for bedtime because it's warm without being too heavy.
My son is very colic and has reflux so often cried before getting the sleep sack I wouldn't get him to sleep until 4am and had to hold him. Now I wake him to nurse. I have two kids the baby and a 3 year old so it's great I have more energy to play with my oldest like before and my youngest is more rested so very happy during the day. I have recommended this product to everyone I know that has a baby or is having.
I purchased the 3-6 month sleep sac for my 10 week old son and he falls asleep within 5 minutes! This is a very big improvement from 30 min to an hour! I wanted to try the swaddle however no other swaddle has worked so I went straight to the sleep sac. He still wakes up twice to eat at night but goes right back to bed. I will be ordering a second one.
My baby had trouble transitioning from a full swaddle to arms out. The nested bean weighed sleep sack was just the thing, once we realized she liked to sleep on her belly, we turned it around and it has worked wonders!! Sleeps all through the night and helps with naps too!! Thank you
I really had high hopes that this would help my daughter sleep and unfortunately it has not helped.
I LOVE these!!! I get to cover my son up with the piece of mind that it won’t cover his face up. He sleeps in it every night. I’m about to buy him then 6-12 months ones!
The transition from swaddling to the zen sack has been nothing but amazing and super easy. My little one sleeps even better at night with the zen sack. Definitely recommend!
Was really hoping that this sleep sack would work as my son was getting up every two hours to feed at 3 months old. Unfortunately he didn't sleep any better with the sack on. I love the concept and will he keeping to try with my next little one.
These sleep sacks saved our lives! We have 5 month old twins and we needed sleep. When my boys started sleeping longer stretches, we started to lightly swaddle with their arms out with the nested bean swaddlers. They sleep like Champs now. When I realized it wouldn't be long until they'd outgrow the swaddlers I ordered the sleep sacks. Now it's a part of our bedtime routine and we love them!
I was really hoping that it would have helped my son sleep better but it did nothing for him. :(
My daughter really doesn't seem to like this. We tried it for 2 weeks and unfortunately it didn't help her sleep at all.
The product itself is excellent. Material is soft, comfortable, and what I love is that the zipper doesn't bother the baby since it has a small cover so the baby is comfortable. These were designed thinking 100% on the babies comfort which is why I loved it. Unfortunately not all babies are the same. While I loved every piece of the product my daughter was just not a fan of it. But I do highly recommend it as one of my friends purchased one and it did wonders for her baby.
Game changer! Our large son suddenly refused to sleep in his bassinet because he wanted to stretch out. Standard sleep sacks left him waking every time he moved. The weighted sleep sack has been amazing! He will sleep in 4-6 hour stretches now (still waking to eat) and settles right back to sleep. The zipper system makes diaper changes super easy. The whole thing is very well made and high quality. I really don't know what else would have helped him...so grateful for this product! I did a lot of research before I purchased...one of the perks of this product over the Merlin suit is the ability for the baby to move. Our son likes to fall asleep on his side then roll to his back.
I have twin 5 month (4 month adjusted) boys who have both recently switched to the nested Bean sleep sack. One went from waking every 3 hrs all night to waking only once to eat. The other started sleeping through the night within the first week. We are believers in our house!
Love the material of the sleep sacs!
I was very skeptical to use product but it has helped my 6 month old to have longer sleep stretches. Very happy with purchase!!
We got it for our daughter when she was about 11weeks old. She went from waking up 1-2 times nightly to sleeping most nights through the night. Improved sleep for everyone!
Love the zen sack!!
I started with the winter weight sack and that is still the one e use most often. We liked this sack too but will use it more when the weather requires something really light. As some of the other reviews I read noted, the sack would be much more convenient if the beads were enclosed in a removable pouch instead of sewn directly into the garment. I think the beads were useful at first when we were transitioning from Merlin suit to nested bean sack but once my baby started learning to sleep on her belly, the beads were in the way. I removed them from the winter sack and she didn’t miss them at all and preferred the extra freedom. Some reversed the sack so the beads go on the back but this did not work for us as my baby needs full mobility. I bought a two pack and have barely used the one but like I said, when the warmer weather comes, two might come in handy. Unfortunately, that means I need to alter two more garments to remove the beads and sew back up. The sacks are very cozy and good quality, which is why I’d even bother to do that vs using a different brand or type of sack.
We love our sleep sacks! We are lucky that our baby naturally fell in to a sleep rhythmn, he is 15 weeks and sleeps 12-13 hours at night - maybe waking once for a diaper change. He had been in the zen swaddle because he is a ninja baby and could get his arms out of anything (that strong velcro is amazing)! Once he was getting his arms out of that strong velcro we knew it was time for the sleep sack. After about 4-5 days he started only waking once, and after two weeks he slept all the way through the night, 7pm-6am. Several of my friends have asked how we transitioned out of swaddling so easy, and my husband just tells them, "just put him in his potato sack and he goes to sleep!" highly recommend to all our friends!!
The sack is nicely constructed, but it hasn't helped my son sleep any better.
I was skeptical about the impact other parents were seeing when using these. However was willing to try and I'm so happy we did. The sleep impact for us was immediate. Our son was 1.5 months old when we got this and went from 4 hours to 7 over night! I would recommend to any new parent working to get a consistent sleep schedule!
The sleep sack helped our little one transition our of a swaddle so smoothly. And shortly after into her crib. Works fantastically!
I was very excited to try the sleep sack hoping it would help my LO sleep. Unfortunately it did not improvement his sleep. I did love the softness of the fabric and the cute design, I wish it would’ve worked for us!
My daughter says he is sleeping longer while wearing his sleep sack
Love nested bean products! Right now my daughter is transitioning out of the swaddle. She screams when she wakes up and cant move her arms, however she still has a hard time falling asleep arms free. Vicious cycle! I truely believe this has helped! It's super soft and if it's anything like the infant swaddles I am sure it'll hold up in the wash.
It's ok product but haven't seen any changes in his sleep.
