Half-Up Sleeves Pod™
Perfect for babies with a medium startle reflex who prefer to sleep in a natural arms UP position for comfort
Hand-crafted for the highest quality to gently dampen baby's startles
Inner band makes for the ultimate ESCAPE-PROOF swaddle
Allows baby to safely self-soothe and enhances quality of sleep for both parents and babies!
Our Half-Up Sleeves™ are safe for babies who can roll over. When baby can roll over, move to arms out in the sleeves and wrap inner band around baby's torso for extra comfort
Sleeves come 3/4 of the way down and have a mitten cuff that may be used open (arms-down position) or closed (arms-up position), according to your baby's preference
Sleeves provide partial resistance and are perfect for those babies transitioning out of an "arms-up" swaddle or for little ones who prefer to drift off to dreamland in an arms-up position
The cozy design soothes baby's involuntary movements when asleep while still allowing for full range of movement for safety and rolling over

I woke up one night to my baby's swaddle covering her face and that was it... I haven't looked back. We struggled so much with the wrap swaddles since she seemed to water her arms out around 10 weeks. When we tried arms out she would startle awake again and again. We are loving the damping affect of the padded arms. We have gotten one arm into the normal sleeve and leave one in the padded for now to gradually transition to a regular sleep sack. Peace of mind has been worth the price point!
We are using the sleep sack with sleeves option to help our 4 month old get ready to move out of her Merlin suit. Going great for naps so far, really nice material and easy zipper from bottom to top. Definitely a fan of this being a mom of two and would reccomend
Thank you for inventing this. It’s the only sleep sack our baby would transition out of the Magic Sleep Suit for!
My girl has been sleeping in the onesie with the swaddle sleeves since she was 3 months old. She sleeps 10-12 hours a night and I was terrified to transition. I didn’t want to mess anything. She just turned 6mo and a few weeks ago I bit the bullet. Luckily, the mitten sleeves make it easy peasy! She didn’t even notice a difference! I imagine going to a regular onesies will be a breeze from here! Thank you for making an easy plan for transitioning!
On a side note: her arm got broken in a daycare accident around 4 months and being able to unzip the sleeve to keep her bad arm pinned underneath with the sleep sack was a life saver!
The material is so soft and stretchy. And the sleeves seem very breathable and comfortable. I just got the product today and she put herself right to sleep as soon as I swaddled her for her nap. And that was a miracle. It’s escape proof and that has been a big struggle with her other swaddles. Im hoping the sleeves make the transition to arms out seamless. I’m very excited to have happened upon this small company.
After trying several “transition” products for my little guy showing signs of rolling, I was left frustrated and in the same spot (swaddling my baby). This is the BEST transition product we have ever used! With the first use my first little guy took a 1.5 hour nap and slept better than in his swaddle! Gone are the days of him breaking out of the swaddle or getting frustrated by not having his arms.. swaddle sleeves is the BEST ! Don’t hesitate to try it especially if you have tried everything else and nothing worked!
Love the product! Such a good transition product
We were nervous about transitioning our little guy out of the swaddle, but this sleep sack has worked really well. The pillowy sleeves really help with the startle reflex he still gets on occasion and the mittens prevent him from wakening himself when he touches his face. Really recommend this sack!
Moved my baby from the swaddle in her Snoo to her crib and used the Swaddle Sleeves to help with the transition. Worked great and I preferred this over the the Merlin Sleepsuit. The only complaint is it can be very hard to get the sleeves on!
The swaddle sleeve sack has changed the game for our little one’s sleep. He’s a real squiggler and loves having his arms out, but his flailing was waking him up in the middle of the night. No more with this swaddle! We’re sure this swaddle is one of the reasons he started sleeping 9+ hours at 10 weeks. The fold over mittens are also a great feature. Now that he’s discovered his fingers, we let the hands out at night and he can self soothe with them as well. Such a well-designed product!
Our 10 week old daughter started to break out of her Halo swaddle and sleep with her arms up by her ears. She still has strong Moro reflex so it was clear she couldn’t move right into a sleep sack. I ordered a few different brands online and am very happy with the Half-Up Sleeves Sack. It’s soft, warm but ideal for nighttime with a pj onesie underneath, and allows her to sleep in her desired position while tempering her reflex. I like that the arms are semi flexible though as it allows her to move around more naturally. It’s been a great transition product for us.
Love this product. Has been the perfect transition out of the full swaddle, and we like it so much we bought the bigger size for when she outgrows this one. Also we love the story. My wife and I also had a child pass away and are always happy to support other parents who have gone through this.
Wonderful product and wonderful customer service. My little guy had a hard time coming out of the swaddle, especially with his reflex still. This settles his arms but still lets him go to his side and roll on belly if he wants to! Thank you for sharing your story and making a wonderful product to help families!
My daughter is going to roll over any day now, but she is a swaddle loving baby. I love that we can use one puffy sleeve and one normal sleeve and swaddle her with the puffy sleeve out, and it will help her (and us) get more sleep during the regression.
Fabric is suuuuuper stretchy and soft—so nice.
We wanted a swaddle that could last with our 2 month old! We loved the idea of the removable sleeves to just the sleep sack for when he’s older! Absolutely game changer for his sleep!
We finally found an all-in-one baby sleep product that does EVERYTHING! I had tried almost every swaddle and sleep sack on the market with my oldest, each offering something completely different. With my second baby, these have given us everything that I've been looking for for the different stages of baby sleep, in one item. My newborn loved to be swaddled, and when it came time to start swaddling with arms out I didn't have to switch products or order something new. When she's ready for just a sleep sack, I can take the arms right off and still use the pod that she loves. No adjustment period, no switching between products and no additional purchases. It's all right here, and she's secure, safe and sleeping GREAT. Thank you for not only a great night's sleep, but the SIMPLICITY of having everything we need all in one package.
