Merino Kids Sleep Bag
Luckily for us, babysleepbags.com contacted me to see if we would be interested in doing a review on one of their Merino Kids Sleep Bags. After reading a bit about the sleep bags online and reading others reviews I quickly replied letting them know I would love to. I picked this gray striped gender neutral print because it will work for Zaden and our future children. When determining what size I should order I went based off of their size chart. Zaden isn't a very big toddler and I was confident picking the 0-2 size based on his height and weight. I know it's a bit difficult to tell in the pictures above since he scrunched the sleep bag together but he has a ton of room to grow before he outgrows this size. I absolutely love this sleep bag for various reasons.
When I read that the Merino Sleep Sack was made out of 100% Woolmark-certified Superfine Merino I was a bit scared that it would be itchy, hot, and hard for Zaden to sleep in. However, after reading more about the material on their website I realized that it is a very soft organic cotton exterior fabric unlike your typical itchy wool fabric. The material is so incredibly soft and retains the perfect temperature for Zaden! I don't have to worry about Zaden over-heating because it keeps him at the perfect temperature throughout the night.
Easy To Put On:
In order to put Zaden in his sleep bag I just put it on like a t-shirt, snap the little shoulder piece and armpit snap into place, and zip! There are snaps located right underneath the armpit to ensure a perfectly snug fit or to un-snap for older toddlers. There's also a zipper closure along the entire bottom which makes diaper checks and changes super easy.
Seat Belt Loop:
If you have a 0-4 month old I totally remember how often they sleep. Zaden never liked to be bundled up but I know most babies do. Something really nice about the Merino Kids Sleep Bag is that there's a convenient seat belt loop that you can just put your little ones seat belt through. That way you don't have to wake them up or worry about them kicking off their blanket in the car or stroller. I personally haven't tried this feature yet but it will definitely come in handy next time we drive to Washington.
Ever since we started using the Merino Kids Sleep Bag, Zaden sleeps better throughout the night which means I get a better nights rest too (;
