Frequently Asked Questions
What are some times Soothie Sleeve can be useful?
Great question! My hope is that it will become your child’s most loved stuffed animal and provide years of comfort.
Here are some perfect times to use your Soothie Sleeve to start:
• A babysitter can comfort your child with their favorite Soothie Sleeve
• Allows Mom to sleep through a nighttime feeding while someone else (Dad, Grandma, Nanny, etc) gives the baby a bottle
• Daycare/Nanny can use to comfort your child while you work
• Toddler can snuggle their Soothie Sleeve to comfort them all night for less frequent awakenings
• Can soothe your child while you are away on a work trip
Do you offer additional sleeves for purchase?
Each Soothie Sleeve comes with one standard size sleeve and we are including a slightly stretchier additional sleeve as part of our initial launch. We currently also offer an expanded size sleeve option for use with larger arms. We plan to offer additional sleeves in the original colors and new colors/patterns in the future to allow for more flexibility if your original sleeve is in use or being washed and you need to wear another one.
Can my child sleep with their Soothie Sleeve?
Yes, as long as they are over 12 months! The American Academy of Pediatrics safe sleep recommendations for the first 12 months include keeping soft objects like stuffed animals away from the sleep area. So, you can certainly use the Soothie Sleeve to calm and soothe your baby during their bedtime snuggles but then remember to remove the animal from the crib prior to them going to sleep.
When will my order ship?
Soothie Sleeves ship in 1-2 business days
Is the Soothie Sleeve washable?
• We recommend you only spot clean your Plush Animal.
• The Sleeve can be hand washed or washed on a delicate cycle. Lay flat to dry.
Our bunny was a gift from a friend who swears by these! My daughter absolutely adores her bunny (Bee)! She’s never been okay with sleeping alone or even being without mommy, so when my friend had given us Bee, I didn’t think it would work. Now, Bee goes everywhere with her, and she and Bee go to bed by themselves every night. I think we might need to get another for her brother!
My son was born with torticolis. As a result, sleeping in his crib was very painful. I ended up holding him a lot and he had signs of separation anxiety at 3 months. Now that I have to return to work, I am petrified he will scream for me when I’m gone. I tried this product out of desperation and I was very pleased with the result. My son’s demeanor is noticeably more peaceful when the bear is around him. I’m hoping it will ease the transition when I go back to work. Very grateful for this product!
I got lucy for my little boy before he started daycare at 12 weeks. He takes her to school every day and the staff have all commented how much he loves his lamb. It really helps him nap!
I love this little bear! My baby just transitioned to the crib and he sniffle with his bear every night! He’s a mama’s boy and doesn’t ever want me to put him down. I think this bear really helps him feel close to me when I’m not there.
I bought this sleeve just to try out with my two year old who has become extremely attached to her dad. When he wasn’t home for bedtime, she would fuss and cry for him. After purchasing this sleeve and putting it to use, after one day she was already going to bed much easier at night on the days when my husband wasn’t home in time to do bedtime. Best idea ever!
