    Promising review: "This sleep sack is a total game changer! Before this we had tried the velcro swaddles, but he’s a strong baby and would break out of them, and they were a little difficult, at times, to get on. This swaddle is soft and easy to put on, and I love that there are different ways to wear it as your child’s sleep habits change. My son is a very active sleeper and would constantly wake himself up because of it, and he also makes a lot of noise when sleeping, which keeps me up. But after two days of using the Nested Bean, he sleeps so soundly. I am now able to put him in his crib or bassinet without waking him — unlike before. And he now falls asleep within minutes and stays asleep for hours! My husband thought I was crazy for spending this much on something he’s going to grow out of fast, but it is worth the money and I even purchased a second one!!" —Corey Ellingwood

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99 (available in sizes 0 to 6 months and six colors).
