*Long Review but REAL!* I want to begin by saying - I can’t say enough great things about this brand & their line of sleep sacks/transition sacks! We went through EVERY sleep sack/swaddle/arms up/arms down/arms out swaddle. Spent HUNDREDS of dollars (probably closer to thousand, honestly) just trying to find the right fit for our baby boy. We were begging for sleep for the first 6 months of his life. We used an arms down, tight swaddle in his beginning months, & he quickly outgrew it but still wanted the swaddled/snuggled feeling. We tried everything & NOTHING kept him asleep or gave him restful sleep. He was breaking out of swaddles or his reflex would wake him up (he had the strongest Moro-reflex, EVER+for a really long time). Until we tried Sleeping Baby. First, we used the Zippadee zip & our son LOVED it. This is when we finally started getting long stretches + consistent sleep! He was able to feel snuggled/like a blanket was over him, but he was also free enough to wiggle around, roll over, lift himself up, etc. & it’s SAFE. He particularly liked holding onto the fabric on his hands and being able to grab his paci!! GAME CHANGER. The more he began wiggling, rolling, standing, I thought it was time for his hands & feet to be out for safety as he was constantly trying to pull up in his crib. That’s when we switched to the flying squirrel sack, & it was an absolutely SEAMLESS transition. You wouldn’t have ever known he was sleeping in anything else because it never changed his great sleep pattern, it just continued or got even better. Because in the flying squirrel, he’s able to grab his pacifier much more easily or find others in his crib to soothe himself back to sleep. He also can move around & wiggle himself around much more easily to get himself more comfortable. We will use these forever if he wants to!! My son is 9 months old now, 23 lbs & we have him in size small for the flying squirrel. It’s baggy, but to be expected & also that’s how they’re supposed to fit! He has room to grow & it’s super comfy. LOVE SLEEPING BABY SO SO SO SO MUCH!
This is our third time to purchase a flying squirrel suit because we love them so much. We’ve also bought a few other sleep sack styles too. They flying squirrel pajamas are perfect for our kiddo! She has eczema and the fold over hands and feet prevent her from scratching. The fabric is so soft and breathable too. I recommend them too all our new parent friends!
The item was exactly what I was looking for. Child that had never slept by self or all night slept 12 hours in bed by self.
Our daughter transitioned great from a zipadee zip to the flying squirrel. She was so excited to get to her hands.
