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!
This sleepsack really helped my son transition from being swaddled to arms free. The quality is excellent as well. So soft!
Perfect as you transition your little one out of the swaddle and beyond. The weighted sleeves help a lot as your baby gets used to being out of the swaddle and then after you don’t need them you can just zip them right off or go to non weighted sleeves! I also love how this doesn’t make them too hot. Great product.
We have been using this for 3 days now! Nap times started out rough but they are getting better! However night time had been the same if not better since switching to this sleep suit! This was the best purchase to help us transition out of the swaddle! (We started right at 3 months)
We love the swaddle sleeve! After we transitioned from the swaddle to the sleep sack I was desperate one night when I was up for what felt like many times. After we started using this, my son now stopped startling and sleeps longer stretches through the night. Highly recommend
At first when I received my sons sleep sack I thought oh no these weights in the sleeves are far too heavy for him. Boy was I wrong he still startles with them but its not as jerky as it was without them. He doesn't seem to wake himself up from his startles which is the whole reason I purchased this sleep sack. If your child has to transition out of a swaddle and they still startle a lot I recommend this sleep sack. They weighted sleeves are removable as well so once they have their startle more under control you can remove the weights.
The weighted sleeves helped my 5 month old finally transition out of his swaddle! Customer service was also super helpful when I needed additional help with my order too!
My baby was hitting his face constantly when we were transitioning him from swaddle to arms out in a sleep sack. First night I put this on him, he didn’t touch his face and wake himself up! It’s awesome!
After only two days taking a daytime nap in this swaddle sack, our 3 month old is now sleeping in it through the night. So glad we purchased this as she was breaking out of her Ollie and needed to graduate. It is lightweight so she doesn't get too hot (we live in the Southwest and it gets hot here so this was a concern of ours before buying). Glad I bought the bundle and we have the next size up, as well! I'd highly recommend!
I had a hard time getting my 4 month old out of a swaddle because he would flail his arms. He has been up once a night but other sleep sacks made it worse. He’s still up once a night but at least we are out of the swaddle. Overall, great product.
Our son would constantly wake himself up with flailing arms (Moro reflex) after we had to stop swaddling him approaching 3 months. The gently weighted sleeves on this suit are great to help with the adjustment period. Only wish the sleep sack itself was also gently weighted — that would make it perfection!
Our son loves this! We tried marking sleep suit and it felt to us like a space suit! So bulky.
With this one, he can fall asleep in less than 15 mins which is great to us
This sleep sack has great potential for transitioning my baby from the Snoo (swaddled) to his crib. The material is super soft and cozy and the quality is great. I love the emphasis on safety.
Fingers crossed for a smooth transition!
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.
I was looking for something that would be a great transition from swaddling to sleep sack for my twins, and this was it!
I wanted to give this a few nights before reviewing. We needed to transition our 3 mo old out of a swaddle which she has used since the day she came home. She slept SO good in the swaddle (typically waking once per night) so I was very scared about this transition. I found this on IG through a trusted nurse/sleep consultant and thought why not try it?
My baby girl slept just as great as she has been and she loves it. She can bring her hands up to sooth her in the night. She has been waking in the mornings and just lays there sucking her hands and coo-ing to herself rather than immediately crying. The weighted arms are weighted just enough to help with the reflex in the night to not disturb them but they are still able to move their arms to their face which I love. This product is worth the $$$. Buy it!!
Also, it can become a regular sleep sack but just unzipping the sleeves which I love bc this can be used far beyond the transition.
