Has your young child ever squirmed out of her blanket? The cries of my little baby have continuously awakened me in the middle of the night, only to realize that she had squirmed out of her blanket. As soon as I cover her with the blanket again, she would stop crying and go back to slumber land.
What if the blanket didn’t slip off my baby?
Wouldn’t I have been able to catch more moments of a restful night sleep without interruptions? That would have been valuable, and that’s why I went shopping for a cozy cotton sleep sack for my baby.
Before buying the cotton sleep sack, I was very skeptical about it because I thought that it’s just another baby gear item of no use and buying it would be a waste of money. However, as it has turned out, a sleep sack is arguably one of the most important pieces I’ve bought for my baby so far. It has given me a much welcome peace of mind because it has eliminated a serious concern I had: that of my priceless little one twisting and getting trapped in the blankets and losing her breath.
When I zip my little one in a sleep sack, I’ve noted that she moves naturally all night long. My baby may be too energetic for her age, but the sleep sack never comes off, regardless of how hard she kicks and wiggles.
If you’re dealing with a similar situation even in the slightest bit, a cotton sleep sack can do you a world of good. Whether you need it to provide you with serenity as you engage in your daily activities or all you need is a night free from interruptions, buying a sleep sack is an investment that pays back tenfold.
Benefits of sleep sacks
A sleep sack helps ease the switch from swaddle to blanket. You will reach a point where you’ll find it impossible to get your little baby to sleep without swaddling, yet she’s grown too big for it. In that case, many parents use sleep sacks to help their babies switch to blankets. Sleep sacks feel more like swaddles than the normal blankets and you won’t ever have to mind about swaddling once you zip your baby in a nice cotton sleep sack.
A sleep sack comes in handy when traveling. Isn’t it lovely that you can place your baby inside a sleep sack no matter where she is? Whether you’re placing her in a baby carriage, or in the seat of your vehicle, or she’s in a plane, you won’t have to pick up any fallen blankets.
A sleep sack helps the baby sleep longer. Interestingly, my baby has fallen in love with her sleep sack. I’ve realized that she doesn’t really sleep well without it. With a sleep sack on, she can sleep for more than two extra hours and that means more sleep for me too.
Clearly, a cotton sleep sack comes with various benefits for the toddler and the parents. If you’re yet to try a cotton sleep sack on your baby, now you have a reason to try it.
