Sleep Sack 101

What is a Sleep Sack?

Sleep sacks are wearable blankets designed to keep babies and infants warm and safe while they sleep. They are a safer alternative to loose blankets in the crib, as they eliminate the risk of suffocation or overheating. Sleep sacks come in various sizes and materials, so be sure to choose one that fits your baby snugly and is appropriate for the current room temperature. Additionally, Malabar Baby offers sleep sacks recommended by baby sleep consultants, ensuring both safety and comfort for your little one during sleep time.

how to pick size

When selecting a size for the baby sleep sack, it is recommended to choose the size that aligns with
the baby's height* within the specified range.

If the baby's height falls at the upper end of the height requirement for a particular size, it is advisable to size up
to ensure a comfortable fit and allow room for growth.

TIP #1

You can either transition your baby out of the swaddle gradually or do a cold turkey switch to the sleep sack. For a gradual transition, swaddle your baby with one arm out for 2 nights. Then in the next 2 nights, swaddle only around the chest with both arms out. Lastly, remove the swaddle and put them in wearable sleep sack for sleep time. I’m a bigger fan of the cold turkey transition so we can speed upthe adjustment process. Whatever method you choose,stay consistent with it.

TIP #2

If your baby is used to being swaddled while sleeping, you can expect that for the first few days, they will have a tougher time falling asleep and have more night wakings. This difficult but temporary phase. To get their sleep back on track, consistently use the sleep sack for all naps and nights for them
to build a positive association with it. Do a short
wind down routine before every nap and bedtime. Maintain a conducive sleep environment which is dark, cool and quiet.
