Nested Bean Zen Swaddle

Nested Bean Zen Swaddle

Swaddling was something we gave up on pretty early with our first son.  We were new and inexperienced parents, and my son just didn't seem into it.  The only swaddles we had were the blankets they gave us in the hospital.  Even at a couple weeks old, my son would kick right out of them no matter how tight we wrapped it. I had no idea at the time that there were so many better swaddle options out there.  

For our second son we wanted to find a swaddle that actually worked, and our little guy would love.  I found out about the Nested Bean Zen Swaddle from other mamas on Instagram.  The Zen Swaddle mimics the touch of your hand, with a lightly weighted chest and sides.  This feature is so genius, and really helps the baby feel safe and secure.  It's 2 in 1 design lasts twice as long as standard swaddles, from birth to 6 months. The Zen Swaddle is designed with super soft 100% cotton, and is machine washable, and extremely durable. 

We brought ours to the hospital so we could start using it right away.  I couldn't believe all the attention it got from the hospital staff.  Every nurse that checked on Henry asked what it was.  And much to our delight, Henry loved it too.  Our hospital stay went so much smoother than with our first son.  Henry slept so soundly in his Zen Swaddle both nights, and continues to sleep great in it every night at home coupled with our Dock-A-Tot and Arms Reach Co-Sleeper.

I would recommend this swaddle to any new mom who's looking for something much easier and practical to use than standard swaddles.  The Zen Swaddle is unlike any others we've tried, and we'll definitely be ordering the Zen Sack once he outgrows it.
