Overview of Dreamland Baby Co
Dreamland Baby Co was started by Tara Williams. She was having a hard time getting her 6 month old to sleep. One night she put a heavy throw blanket over him and he calmed down. She thought that a weighted sleep sack would be perfect for him, but couldn't find any. This was how she got the idea to make one herself.
See Tara sell her idea to the sharks on Shark Tank:
Tara accepted an offer from Lori Greiner and the company has taken off since then.
The Dreamland Baby weighted swaddle is size 0-6 months, 8-18lbs. You can use it as either a swaddle or a sleep sack. To use it as a swaddle you'll wrap your baby's arms in the wings. When your baby is ready for a sleep sack, you'll wrap the wings around their waist instead.
We swaddled our twins Milo and Violet until they started rolling from back to belly. The reason why is because we read that Rachel Y. Moon, MD from the American Academy of Pediatrics said, "when your baby looks like he or she is trying to roll over, you should stop swaddling."
These are the sleep sacks that we got for our twins and they are the reason we wrote this Dreamland Baby review. The first time we put this product on our babies they became so calm right away.
It's such a cute weighted blanket and we love that it's gender neutral. It's white with little grey stars on it. It has a quilted look to it and zips up onto the baby.
It's a really cool blanket since it's weighted. It helps babies fall asleep faster because it makes them feel like they're being hugged, which makes them feel safe. This is really important for Milo. We've noticed that he has to feel safe and know that we're nearby for him to fall asleep.
The gentle weight of this wearable weighted blanket helps babies self soothe, stop moro reflex, increase melatonin, increase serotonin, decrease cortisol, sleep longer, and help stop sleep regression.
Since Milo isn't trying to roll from back to front yet we still swaddle him at night. Violet sleeps in her sleep sack at night and Milo sleeps in his sometimes during the day.
The transition from swaddling to using sleep sacks was a little rough for Violet. She had been swaddled every day and night for almost 6 months, so it was hard for her to fall asleep with her arms out. We just had to be patient with the transition for a few nights, but now she's doing great. Dreamland Baby Co's sleep sacks have really helped us!
I also love how they have dual zippers. It's so easy to zip our babies up in them and the dual zipper makes it so easy to change diapers without having to completely take them out of the sleep sack. It's the best when babies also have an outfit that zips from the top to bottom because that will make diaper changing even easier.
We are so grateful for products like this that help our babies sleep! We hope other moms will benefit from them and love them too.
The Dreamland weighted blanket was just released and we are so excited to have ours!
The size is 36" x 48". It is for kids who are 30+ lbs and is recommended for ages 3-8. The weighted blankets should not be used when your little one is sleeping in a crib.
My babies are not old enough and don't weigh enough to sleep with this blanket at night. We love to use them during the day and snuggle in them. My babies always become so calm when we have the toddler weighted blanket on us.
