Weighted Products: When can we start using the Weighted Sleeping Bag?Updated 6 months ago

Moonboon's Weighted Sleeping Bag has been developed with care so as to create a product that is very safe and offers a pleasant experience.

The zipper has two openings, ensuring optimal air circulation and easy access, and the sleeping bag is designed with a focus on the highest level of safety and plenty of room for the child to move during sleep.

To ensure the safest fit, the product is tailored more towards the child's weight than age.

The weight on the body should correspond to about 10% body weight + 2 kg in order to help provide the desired sense of calmness. In order to exercise caution, we base our size guidelines on 8% of the average body weight of a child.

The Weighted Sleeping Bag comes in two sizes:  

  • 8-18 months (approx. 9-12 kg): Weighted sleeping bag, 85 cm long 

  • 18-36 months (approx. 12-15 kg): Weighted Sleeping Bag, 100 cm long 

The Weighted Products are the perfect choice for when your child is ready to leave the baby hammock but still needs something to help them settle down.

Moonboon's Weighted Products are designed to support the child to sleep on their back, in accordance with the recommendations of the Danish Health Authority. The Weighted Sleeping Bag's increased weight can make it harder for the child to adjust their sleeping position on their own. For safety reasons and to prevent cot death, the Weighted Sleeping Bag may only be used by children aged 8 months and older. A thumb rule is that the children should be able to turn on their own since they must be able to adjust their sleeping position and change the placement of their heads by themselves when sleeping.

We recommend always using the Weighted Products in accordance with the recommendations and instructions so as to establish the best and safest environment for your child.  

If your baby can turn without help, the Weighted Products will naturally follow the body without being cumbersome.
