Our cutie pie just turned 4 months old and she has been a really good sleeper. But lately, she’s been fighting her swaddle and escaping from it. Which is super cute but not safe. So we decided to try some of the sleep sacks that had been given to us. She hated these and would push and pull on them and cry until she tired herself out and fell asleep with her legs through the neck of the sleep sack.
Again, cute but not safe. So we decided to try the Sleep Pouch from Milk Snob.
Their sleep pouch is amazing. It is a fabulous soft and safe blanket alternative, designed to allow the baby’s arms to move around but keep the torso and legs warm. It can be used in any climate, if it’s colder you simply reverse the pouch so the thicker fabric is on the inside. If its warmer reverse the pouch so the lightweight breathable patterned fabric is on the inside. Another great thing about the pouch is that it is not tight on your baby’s legs allowing them to move freely and sleep in more natural positions than traditional swaddling.
So we gave this a try and she immediately napped in it with no problems.
At night we started transitioning her from her swaddle by leaving one arm out, then two and then into the pouch she happily went. As a parent, I love these because I don’t have to worry about fabric becoming loose and tangling around her as she sleeps. It’s so easy to put on and take off and you don’t have to worry about any zippers or snaps. Plus there is plenty of growing room in these pouches. They come in two sizes and they stretch as baby grows.
