How do Swaddle Sleeves work?
By using a strategic layering technique in our sleeves, we have created the same effect of dampening babies’ startles as they transition out of the swaddle that you’re used to with our products, but WITHOUT adding ANY weighting. The dampening effect is created through the air pockets in our inner polyfill layer. Similar to what’s found inside a higher TOG wearable blanket, our puffy Swaddle Sleeves do not restrict movement, but do provide just an extra bit of reassurance to your little one as they transition out of the swaddle.Another way to understand our proprietary layering method would be to imagine the puffy Swaddle Sleeves as being made of the same material of a wearable blanket with a higher TOG (thermal overall grade) rating, whereas our Mitten Sleeves would be classified as having a lower TOG rating.
Are all of the sleeves interchangeable?
Yes, all of our sleeves are interchangeable. For example, let’s say you purchase the Swaddle Sleeves Sack. With it, you get 2 sets of sleeves, our Swaddle Sleeves and Mitten Sleeves. You can use either one (most parents prefer to start off with our Swaddle Sleeves and then transition over to the Mitten Sleeves!), or you can also purchase our Add-On Star Sleeves, for example, if for some reason your sweet baby isn’t taking to the Swaddle Sleeves, without having to purchase a whole new product! As we grow, we’ll be offering bundle options for our sleeves, but currently, we only have our Add-On Sleeves as a purchase option so you can mix and match without having to buy a whole new product!
Are these products safe for sleep?
Our products have been designed according to the AAP’s (American Academy of Pediatrics) guidelines for safe sleep. Not only have we undergone certified third-party laboratory testing and surpassed the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s safety standards, we also partnered with pediatric physical therapists, pediatric nurses, and pediatricians throughout our development and design process to ensure that you and your baby are getting the safest, most effective swaddle product possible. Our products have been approved by global-wide safety standards and verified through Intertek and SGS Testing, both of which are world-leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company.
At Two Baby Bears and Co., you can rest assured that we will always put safety first, as evidenced by the immediate disposal of our weighted inventory (at a huge financial loss to the company’s detriment) as soon as the updated AAP safe sleep guidelines were released in June 2022. We believe that transparency matters, and our relationship with our parents and customers is of utmost importance to us.
Why are all of the sleeves zippered and removable?
Because as parents ourselves, we know how difficult it is to buy a product and have it just not work for your baby, and then be stuck with it! That is why we provide two different sets of sleeves with our Swaddle Sleeves products and also give you the option of removing the sleeves entirely so that 1) in case the product doesn’t work out for your baby, you can still use it as a standard sleep sack/bodysuit/pajamas, and 2) to give you and your baby multiple options of how to use our product in case your baby doesn’t like it one way. This is also why we sell our “Add-on Sleeves,” and 3) for longevity of use! It’s no fun when you can only use a product for a set amount of time and once that time is over, throw it in the dresser drawer never to be seen again. We want you to get the most use out of our products and be able to use them long after you’re done with the swaddle transitioning stage!
How do I wash these?
We know laundry is an important part of any household with little ones, so we wanted to make sure washing the Swaddle Sleeves™ was as easy as possible: Make sure sleeves are attached. Wash on the normal cycle in cold water with a mild, baby-safe detergent, and tumble dry on a low-heat setting. Finally, dress your baby in their Swaddle Sleeves for a one-stop ticket to dreamland.
Are sleep sacks with sleeves safe?
As long as the infant is dressed appropriately for the temperature, swaddles and sleep sacks with sleeves are perfectly safe. Since your baby can't exactly tell you how they feel, it's up to you as a parent to find the right room temperature and use your judgment with help from the AAP's guidelines for a safe and comfortable room temperature. The recommended temperature for babies is between 68 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit or 20 to 22 degrees Celsius. Experts recommend to check the back of baby's neck to see if your little one is warm instead of their hands or feet for a more accurate reading. Another helpful measure for temperature is to dress baby in just one more layer than what you are comfortable wearing. Finally, many of our sleeves come with an optional mitten cuff, so you have the option to leave the hands open or covered depending on your little one's comfort!
My son initially woke up every hour when sleeping in his pack-n-play bassinet. Once we started swaddling him at 1.5 months, he could sleep 4-5 hour stretches. However, four weeks after we started swaddling him, he started rolling from his back to his side. We had to quit swaddling him cold turkey. When we quit swaddling him, he went back to waking up every hour. And he would suck on his fists all night long - Not in a soothing way, but in a stimulating way that only made him more awake.
The swaddle sleeves have been amazing. They are like circumferential pillows for his arms. We have been swaddling him arms out while he is wearing the swaddle sleeves bodysuit, and he has gone back to sleeping 4-5 hour stretches. I have even seen him wake up, try to suck on his fists, and then go back to sleep independently. The mitten hands have been great because although he still sucks some on his fists, it is way less stimulating than it was before.
Note: My son is young (2.5 months) so he is small for the size small. It is quite long on him. But the neckline is narrow enough that it is still a safe fit for sleep and he is comfortable.
My LO had arms that never stopped. When he started breaking out of his swaddle I spent so much $ on everything I could think of…then I found Swaddle Sleeves. I wish I had found them sooner. They provided the perfect balance of freedom and control for his arms.
Our 4.5 month old needed to transition out of her snoo and we wanted to try to help her startle reflex. These helped a ton and she seemed to drift off go sleep so quickly.
We had to stop swaddling immediately because my son started rolling one day and hated being out of the swaddle! We bought the weighted onesie and he loved it! Slept through the night the first night he had it on! Can’t say enough good things about this product!
The quality is great and we are excited to keep using it. I think it’s going to help nap time be more successful!
I bought my baby a Swaddle Sleeves Bodysuit & Mitten Sleeves Set, and we are slowly getting her to have her arms out of the swaddle since she is rolling! The sleeves have been very helpful in the transition! She is still able to self-soothe too :)
Baby boy started breaking out of the swaddle around 10 weeks and still waking himself up jerking his arms. I found Swaddle Sleeves and it has helped so much! He calms down right away after I put it on him and he is staying asleep for longer stretches.
My son was not a fan. Used it after he no longer liked the swaddle. Paired it with a sleep sack. I would put him down asleep and in 10 min he was up crying. We went through this process his first night using the product over and over again. I tried again the next night and the same thing happened twice. I finally gave up and went back to a regular onsie and sleep sack even though he still had a bit of a startle reflex ( this is why I initially bought it) For my son, I think the weighted sleeves frustrated him and maybe were just uncomfortable and bulky. He’s three months and he is an active one. If your baby enjoys their freedom, likes the space of their crib and enjoys being comfortable and free this proab is not for them. Oh well I tired !!
We loved this for our 3 month old! She hated being restricted/swaddled but kept whacking herself in the face over and over again while asleep, leading her (and me!) to wake up fussy multiple times throughout the night. I chose this swaddle sleeves specifically because it’s already so hot where we are! I paired this bodysuit with a sleep sack I already had and it worked BEAUTIFULLY! The first night she slept 8 hours straight. I loved the weighted sleeves and the attached mitten cuffs too. Such an awesome product!
These sleeves are amazing! My son sleeps so well with them and now that he is getting older (6 months), we’re using them to transition him to just a sleep sack. The company is SO responsive and helpful.
