Sleep Sacks and baby sleeping bags are a great transition phase for babies ready to move from swaddling to big-kid blanket. Wearable baby blankets, including sleep sacks and baby sleeping bags are convenient for parents and comfortable for babies.
Typically the blankets keep the feet tucked in and zip, button, snap or velcro up the front. They solve the age-old problem of babies kicking off the blanket and waking up cold or tangled. Every brand of sleep sacks is unique—they can be loose or tight at the bottom. Some allow wiggle room for the feet and others function more like a swaddling blanket. As for the arms - sleep sacks can be sleeveless, short-sleeved, long-sleeved or may tuck arms in with a swaddling feature.
Did you know that one way you can reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is by keeping blankets and clothing out of your baby’s face? An occurrence called rebreathing (the inhalation of carbon dioxide), has been tagged as a possible cause of sudden infant death syndrome. This may occur due to loose blankets or oversized sleeves near the baby’s face.
When deciding on a sleep sack, it’s also important to consider the temperature of the baby’s room and the season of the year. Sleep sacks are available in many fabrics and may range from thick winter fleece to thin summer-appropriate cotton mesh.
