Zen Swaddle

Babies love the touch of their mom. Due to this, many parents face the problem of baby falling asleep in their hands and then waking up once they are put down. I know I was a mom who experienced that a lot. Manasi Gangan experienced this issue with her second child and had the insight to develop a product that would mimic her touch so when she put her baby down, he still felt that she was holding him. The Zen Swaddle by Nested Bean has “lightly weighed parts [which] apply gentle pressure on your baby’s side and center to provide the comfort and security of being held.” Touch or simulated touch has been proven to be a stress regulator thereby allowing your baby to remain calm.


  • Center weighted part called “Peaceful Touch” – provides gentle pressure to the abdomen – as if there is a hand on baby’s chest
  • Side weighted parts called “Loving Embrace” – as if baby is being held
  • Weighted parts filled with poly-beads that are free of harmful chemicals
  • Machine washable
  • Meets mandatory and voluntary safety standards
  • Designed for arms to be swaddled in or out
  • Interior leg pouch for infants (smalled than 23 inches and younger than 1 month) and as baby grows keep legs out of the pouch – like a 2-in-1
  • Velcro holds the swaddle in place
  • White with green stitching
  • 100% cotton
  • Fits babies 0-4 months, 7-14 lbs, 19-26 inches
  • $39.99

I am convinced that the Zen Swaddle will save many parents time. While my youngest is too old to be swaddled, I can only imagine how many more hours of sleep I would have had if I had the Zen Swaddle. Buy it, actually buy more than one because you will get hooked!
