I am very particular about my blankets. Even in the extreme heat of summer, I can’t sleep without at least a light blanket covering me. In the winter, what I hate the most is when my lower back is exposed to the cold.
Cub is, apparently, equally particular about blankets. It’s quite important that I put his duvet on him just right every night. The way his bedroom is laid out, we have no choice but to place his bed right next to the window. Now that it’s getting cold, the draft is particularly chilly, so if he kicks off his covers, I worry about him being too cold.
When he was tiny, in a far away time when he actually slept on his own in a crib, we loved our Halo Sleep Sack Swaddle. He slept so well with his arms swaddled in and his legs nice and snuggled in the sack. Then our sleep routine went a bit wonky, and we became co-sleepers, and then he could walk… and now he’s in bed on his own again and I have happily discovered that you CAN put a mobile child in a sleep sack!
Mhmm… that’s a sleep sack with leg holes, and it’s awesome! They come in sizes 2T-3T and 4T-5T. Cub has lots of room to grown in the smaller size:
Part of our (irregular, at best) bedtime routine involves getting into his wearable blanket. I honestly thought I would have to force him to wear it, but every night, he nods his head enthusiastically when I offer it to him.
In the evening, he runs a circuit between his bedroom and our living room until he’s short of breath. (Who knows why!) He can do his exercise with no issues while wearing his Sleep Sack.
In the morning, the first thing Cub has to do is climb onto the ottoman and start sending his trains and cars down the race track. Also, easily accomplished in his Sleep Sack:
The only design improvement I would suggest for the Halo Sleep Sack Big Kids would be footies! They could roll over to cover cold tootsies, then roll back up if the child prefers to sleep (like me) barefoot. Ideally, they’d have no-slip soles, too.
Since we’re such fans of our sleep sack, I’d love to see it available in other colours and prints!
Because the sleep sack is fleece, which is somewhat water repellent, it’s also great extra protection against diaper leaks.
Halo Sleep Sack Big Kids come in both microfleece (as we tested) and a light-weight knit.
