What is the Cuddle Sleeve?The Cuddle Sleeve is worn on your arm to create a soft, cushioned surface for your baby to rest. With constant “back sleeping,” babies are prone to getting a flat spot on the back of their head. Mom enjoys the cushioned support for her arm, while baby rests comfortably on a cloud, away from irritating fabric, perspiration and germs. With a handy pocket and a loop to hold the matching burp cloth, essentials are always within arm’s reach. The Cuddle Sleeve makes it easy and comfortable for anyone handling an infant; folds easily into diaper bag for travel; and, the soft, luxurious fabric is machine washable. (Daddy’s love it too!)
How does this compare to a lap feeding pillow?With a lap pillow, the baby lays on it, with a Cuddle Sleeve, the baby is held snug in your arms creating a close, tight connection and the feeling of security that creates the bond between you and your baby.
What about Skin to Skin contact ?When breastfeeding, Baby-to-Breast is the ultimate in skin to skin contact. Experiencing that close connection, along with mother’s scent, is both soothing and calming for a newborn. Frequent feedings, however, can cause arm fatigue for mother, causing physical symptoms to sometimes result. Constant shifting of positions can cause baby to become restless and interrupts the feeding process. Mothers deserve to be comfortable too!
Is it just for breastfeeding?There are many reasons when it may not be possible to breastfeed your baby. However, whether you’re breastfeeding or bottle feeding, or when baby is in the care of others, it is most important that feeding sessions are satisfying and successful. When babies feed longer, they sleep better. When babies are satisfied, they’re generally calmer and less agitated. The Cuddle Sleeve provides cushioned comfort for the baby, as well as the caregiver. Sitting down at feeding time, becomes a comfortable, satisfying experience.
How does the Cuddle Sleeve help to calm a baby?New parents need help learning what it takes to calm a crying infant. Sometimes all it takes is changing the baby to a new position. The padded surface enables the baby to lay on his side while still being held and rocked. Relieving frustration for the parent and baby is what results. During crying spells, it is important for caregivers to remain confident and in control. Stress and tension can exacerbate the situation which make matters worse. Infants thrive on a feeling of security. Newborns that are swaddled and held close feel less agitated. The Cuddle Sleeve is a wonderful tool that becomes a link to comfort and soothing. (Magic happens when the Cuddle Sleeve is warmed in the dryer during those “colicky” episodes.)
How long do you use it? Is it just for infants?There are a multitude of uses which moms discover everyday… placing it behind the baby’s head in new “sit-up” bouncers and high chairs, car seats or anytime they need to prop the baby. The Cuddle Sleeve becomes a link to the baby for comfort and feeding. They recognize it and associate it with bonding, feeding and sleep time. For a calming bedtime routine, or whenever baby is in your lap, it becomes their comfy body pillow to hug and snuggle with even as they grow older.
How can it help babies with special needs?The Cuddle Sleeve has been extremely helpful for babies with special needs. Some babies need to be held often and have tactile sensitivities. No matter what the challenges, the Cuddle Sleeve provides the softest, coziest place for “cuddles, kisses and comfort.”
Away from home?Traveling with an infant can be very stressful. So much to bring, so much to think about. Air travel, or confined spaces, are especially difficult. That’s when your arms become the only source of comfort for your baby. With the Cuddle Sleeve tucked neatly in the diaper bag, your arms are once again the most comfortable place for your baby to be. It’s easy to take everywhere!
Separation Anxiety.Transitioning to daycare or babysitters can be traumatic for both mother and baby. The Cuddle Sleeve will always keep baby in his own clean, familiar place, with mother’s scent, to help provide the feeling of security and contentment. Knowing the caregiver is using your personal Cuddle Sleeve, will give mother peace of mind.
“Hands down, the best baby gift received on record!”
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I would personally like to thank the Cuddle Sleeve company, this is the best thing I’ve gotten since my son was born. When he was born I was a first time mom so I was very paranoid with anyone holding him, or their clothes touching him. With the cuddle sleeve I felt comfortable with others holding him because his head and face was protected with his head on the cuddle sleeve. He sleeps with it as a pillow now and he is 19 months. I’ve bought 6 cuddle sleeves for other friends/family of mine and they love it! I will continue to use this ! Ships fast and the box is so cute! Anytime I drop my son off at daycare I get so many compliments on how cool the cuddle sleeve is and that he is such a great napper with it!
Again, Thank you cuddle sleeve !

Cuddle Sleeve is an amazing product! There is no question that feeding and holding a baby strengthens the special bond between mother (or father) and baby. The Cuddle Sleeve lets the parent hold their baby for extended periods of time without discomfort or fatigue. The babies are so comfortable that they feed better and sleep better with the cozy Cuddle Sleeve. Fathers are amazed at how easy it is to feed and bond with their baby. It has a calming affect and helps soothe the baby to relieve stress. You really have to try it to believe it. It just feels so natural and comfortable. Every pediatrician, nurse and mother who has tried the product has been pleased. I will continue to recommend the Cuddle Sleeve to all my colleagues and new parents.
I have an idea for you Cuddle Sleeve..
My 3 year old daughter never leaves home without her Cuddle Sleeve. She’s had the same one since birth. That being said, we were shopping in IKEA and after an hour or so, she realized she lost her Cuddle Sleeve. Total hysteria broke out….not only for her, but for my wife and me. Her “lost or misplaced” cuddle sleeve has taken extraordinary efforts in the past to find and bring back safely to her. I remember driving all the way back through a rainstorm one night when she left it at Aunt Carol’s house, so she could go to sleep that night.
After back tracking our steps and searching the entire IKEA store, there laid her pink cuddle sleeve. One happy little girl jumped out of her stroller to get it.

“Cuddle Sleeve transformed the baby holding experience for myself and our entire family.”
We use your product more than anything else, except diapers. We can’t function without the sleeve anymore. When we have to hold her without it, it puts a strain on my neck and back, and she seems fussier, like she can’t get comfortable.
I am purchasing this one as a gift. I am so proud to be able to share this item so they can feel the ergonomic benefits we have holding our baby for hours with no neck or back pain! Not to mention the benefits of encouraging intimacy with constant cuddling. I felt so smug for having discovered the Cuddle Sleeve, but you are the one who should feel smug, knowing that so many people love your product!
Thank you so much for this amazing Cuddle Sleeve. This time around, my experience with holding an infant all the time is exponentially more comfortable both for me and the baby, and I feel sorry for my older daughter that we didn’t have it for her!! If you sold a blanket, I would buy it for her!
I received a cuddle sleeve when my first grandbaby was born. Landon just turned 4 and he is still loving it. He sleeps with it every night and takes it on trips with him! So I bought a pink one when my granddaughter was born. She loves it just as much. It makes me happy to see them enjoy them so much. I am a true believer in your product! Hope things are going great!
I wanted to thank you for the Cuddle Sleeve you gave my husband as a gift. It was about 5 or 6 weeks ago. You were on a plane to Phoenix, sitting next to my husband, the rabbi from Memphis. He told you about our then 9 month old son, and you gave him a sage Cuddle Sleeve as a gift. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first, but now I’m convinced that the Cuddle Sleeve is a really great invention. It helps us settle our son down to sleep, (especially my husband) and it also makes it so easy for both of us, once the baby is sleeping to transfer him to the crib without waking him up. I’m telling all my friends how great it is.!
“The packaging is just beautiful, and I had a quick peek at the Cuddle Sleeve… it’s just perfect!”
I would like to order a Cuddle Sleeve for a twin girls baby shower. I ordered one from you last year for a friend in Louisiana and she says she still gets asked every day where she got it. She said it was the nicest baby present that she received.

I have a very bad back, to the point of permanent disability. We received your product yesterday, and I already can’t live without it. My husband loves it as well, and from now on we won’t go anywhere without the Cuddle Sleeve!
Thank you for making such a great product.

I need to order a Cuddle Sleeve as a gift for my sister. I received one as a gift when I had my daughter and a day does not go by when I don’t use it. How quickly can I get it?
I bought a Cuddle Sleeve for my daughter when she was about 8 weeks old. Her daycare had received them as a gift in her infant room. Now she can’t sleep without it!! She “snuggles” into it and just loves it. Several times her day care teachers and I have commented that we’ve never seen anything like it. For day care, I procured a note from her pediatrician directing that she HAS to have it in her crib! Day care has tried it without it and it just doesn’t work. She won’t sleep!
I wish I had one when my son was born 3 years ago (he has Down Syndrome.) He spent the first month in the hospital. We used a pillow to support him and that was very cumbersome and quite awkward. Had this been available, I believe it would have worked wonders. I like that it takes the stress off my shoulder and arm, yet provides a safe place to hold/support the baby while nursing, cuddling, etc. I think he would have liked the softness of it, just like his sister does.
Thank you for such a wonderful product. I recommend it to everyone! I also love that it’s machine washable as my baby girl spits up quite a bit. Into the washer, into the dryer and it’s ready for another use!! Very simple.
I have been searching for a unique baby gift idea and after several hours online …I have found it!!! I work for a large corporation and have been searching for something that I could give as the “standard gift” for a new baby. I was thrilled when I saw your product and also your appearance on Sonoran Living here in the Valley of the Sun …I would like to purchase one for a baby born last week and would like to order for all baby births going forward.
“We received your product yesterday, and I already can’t live without it.”
I received a Cuddle Sleeve as a gift from a friend in Arizona for my new baby. It is one of my favorite things so I’m sharing it with other expectant mothers I know. Please let me know if you come up with any new items of this quality in the future. Thanks for a great product!
I was interested in ordering a cuddle sleeve. I am wanting a pink one. I have a 4 year old son and received one from a friend as a baby gift. And he is still using it to this day as his pillow. He takes it with him to preschool for nap time and all!!
We just found out we are having a girl and knew this was the first thing I wanted to get. It was such a life saver with him so it is a must for this baby too.

Unless you’ve ever had a ‘colicky’ baby could you understand the frustration of trying to comfort a baby in constant distress. The Cuddle Sleeve has become my most dependable ‘friend’ to provide comfort from painful gas bubbles. I lay my baby on his tummy with my arm under his belly. It seems to soothe and comfort him while I sway him from side to side. I’m a work from home Dad, and use the Cuddle Sleeve constantly. When I leave the house, I double check to make sure it’s in the diaper bag!

I wanted to let you know how much our family loves the Cuddle Sleeve. We purchased one last spring at the L. A. Baby Convention for our upcoming arrival who was born in October. The Cuddle Sleeve transformed the baby holding experience for myself and our entire family. It is great for children when they hold babies, as well as it is for Grandma and Grandpa. We will definitely be purchasing more of these for our friends when they are due.
