Our social media manager tried out this sleep sack. Here are her thoughts:
A couple key facts about my son’s sleep habits before I share my thoughts:
He is just over a year old, so he’s very used to sleep sacks (we’ve used them from the start).
He already has an attachment to lovies. I don’t recommend this in any way, but we introduced one about 6 months- against Joan and our pediatrician’s recommendation.
I wish I had known about this sleep sack when my son was little. He used to try to get comfortable grabbing onto his sleep sack! He just wanted to grab onto something while he slept. I delayed months introducing a lovey- and still did so before it was truly safe. This sleep sack would have made me so much more comfortable meeting him where he was- too little to have a loose blanket in his crib, but wanting comfort. The attached loveys are terry cloth, so you could easily replicate it as your child gets older. The material is nice and soft- comparable to the popular sleep sack we’ve been using from day one.
This sleep sack features a whole lot of fasteners- velcro, snaps, a zipper. It’s a bit complicated for a sleep-deprived parent! And if you have a very tired, wriggly baby, even harder. It’s not rocket science, though, so I would just recommend practicing a couple times with a happy baby first. Probably a good idea, anyway, to help them get used to it!
