Sleep sacks are designed to help babies maintain the correct body temperature without being overheated while covered in a blanket. For newborns up to one year, there is a higher risk of SIDS. Babies are at higher risk of sleep-related death if they become overheated or if a blanket or bedding item has gone astray and got tangled up with your little one. The beauty of sleep sacks is that they give your little one enough freedom to move around, but it removes the possibility of getting caught up with bedding.
In this blog we will be showing you our 3 favorite sleep bags, telling you all the fun features about each and providing you with some insight of when each of these sleep sacks are the most useful.
Little Unicorn Sleep Bags
Featuring artisan hand-painted prints, Little Unicorn sleep bags are a safe and stylish 100% cotton alternative to a blanket. Muslin is a natural, lightweight and breathable fabric that promotes better sleep and keeps your child comfortable for the duration of the night. One of the most important things is to keep your little one at a comfortable temperature especially during hot weather. These breathable light muslin sleep bags provide them with a comforting cover while maintaining a proper body temperature.
A top-to-bottom zipper makes for easy nighttime diaper changes and machine washable cotton muslin gets softer with every wash.
Kyte Baby Sleep Bags
The amazing feature of Kyte baby products is how soft they are! Kyte baby sleep bags are made of 97% rayon of bamboo so it feels buttery soft and breathable. It features a J-shaped double zipper, which makes it super easy to use. The breathable fabric continues airflow throughout the night but the warmthness of the sleep bag keeps your little one cozy and sleeping well.
Kyte Baby is also know for how incredibly tall their clothing is are, this is great if your child loves sleep bags and would like to use them for a longer time or if your child is very tall and requires larger sizes.
Love to Dream Sleep Bags
Love to dream sleep bags are designed differently than Kyte Baby and Little Unicorn. Love to dream is a swaddle, sleep bag mixed together. It gives your baby that feeling of being swaddled while allowing your baby to sleep in a more natural position with arms up.
Medical research suggests that babies sleep better if they are swaddled and if they can self soothe. Babies often self soothe by sucking their thumbs or touching their faces, the love to dream swaddle up provides the baby the ability to do so while being comfortable in the sleep bag and comforted by the feeling of a swaddle. Love to dream also designs their sleep sack with a hip healthy design that allows their hips and legs to flex naturally.
Love to dream carries a stage 1 sleep bag and a stage 2 sleep bag. The purpose of the stage 2 sleep bag is to transition the baby from being swaddled in the arms up position to having their arms free. The sleep bag is designed to have removable arms to make that transition a smooth one. This allows the baby to slowly get used to having that freedom of a sleep bag versus a swaddle.
There are many different designs including thick, thin, muslin, cotton, rayon bamboo, swaddle sleep bags, transition sleep bags, and many more.
