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

Moonboon's Weighted Vest has been developed with care so as to create products that are very safe and offer a pleasant experience. 

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 Vest comes in three sizes:  

  • 8-18 months (approx. 9-12 kg) 

  • 18-36 months (approx. 12-15 kg) 

  • 3-5 years (approx. 15-19 kg)  

The Weighted Vest has a front zipper and a quilted design that makes for a comfortable fit. It is developed with a focus on the highest level of safety, and the compartmentalised Secure Cell System distributes the weight evenly across the entire chest.

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.

The Weighted Vest'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 Vest may only be used by children 8 aged 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.
