We know how much parents value sleep, especially when you have a newborn in the house. That's why we're here to introduce you to your new best friend: the sleep sack 

Picture this: a cozy, wearable blanket that keeps your little bundle of joy snug as a bug while they snooze! Not only do sleep sacks provide a MUCH safer sleep environment by replacing loose bedding that can increase the risk of SIDS and suffocation, but they also keep your baby warm without the risk of overheating. No more worrying about blankets getting tangled or kicked off in the middle of the night!  

So, grab a cup of coffee and get ready to discover why these wonderful little cocoons are the secret weapon every sleep-deprived parent needs. Say hello to peaceful nights and well-rested mornings! 

What is a Sleep Sack? 

A baby sleep sack is like a wearable blanket that replaces loose bedding in the crib, providing a safer and more comfortable sleep environment for babies. But why are they so important? 
 
Well, besides keeping your baby warm, sleep sacks also prevent the risk of overheating. That's where TOG ratings come into play. TOG (Thermal Overall Grade) is the international standard for measuring how warm a fabric is. Think of it as the duvet equivalent for your little one. Just as you switch to lighter bedding in the summer, sleep sacks have different TOG ratings to suit different temperatures. 
 
If the nursery gets cool, you'll want a sleep sack with a higher TOG rating, around 2.5. However, during summer, or if you prefer to keep their nursery on the toasty side, opt for a lower TOG rating, around 1 or below. It's all about finding the right balance to ensure your baby is comfortable. 

During those warm summer nights, you will want a sleep sack to keep baby covered but cool. Here are some of our top choices.

Sleep Serenity 

Choosing the right sleep sack for your baby is essential for their safety and comfort. Not only does it keep your little one warm, but it also prevents the risk of overheating. Just like choosing different bedding for different seasons, you have to have the proper sleep sack to suit various temperatures. 

For colder nights, pick up sleep sacks with higher TOG ratings. If it's a warmer night, go with lower TOG ratings. Of course, you can’t go wrong with sleep sacks rated for year-round use. They provide comfort and versatility for your little one in any season.
