Baby Merlin's Cotton Magic Sleepsuit
Poor babies: their teeny-tiny, newly-minted bodies are still adapting to life in the wider world, and all sorts of weird discomforts can get in the way of their rest, including startles and twitches. That's why swaddling blankets are a must for newborns, but older, more active babies who have outgrown swaddling sometimes need help calming down and getting to sleep, and that's where Baby Merlin comes in!
The Baby Merlin's Cotton Magic Sleepsuit casts a restful spell on your restless babe by applying the same gentle snugness as a swaddling blanket with a little more developmentally-appropriate freedom of movement. In the Magic Sleepsuit, babies fall asleep more easily and sleep for longer, resulting in a happier baby by day and more sleep for the entire household by night!
The Cotton Magic Sleepsuit is made with two layers of soft, breathable jersey cotton, which sandwich a layer of polyfill that adds warmth and gives the sleepsuit a little bulk (one reviewer described it as looking a little like a baby spacesuit!). It has open hands for grasping and play and open feet for ventilation (add socks if tiny toes get chilly); babies shouldn't need more than one layer under the sleepsuit. In order to simplify dressing and diaper changes, the Baby Merlin's Cotton Magic Sleepsuit has double zippers, and a scooped neckline helps to keep fabric away from baby's face as she sleeps.
Does the Magic Sleepsuit work? When it does, it's a lifesaver: one parent reviewer wrote of his baby that "The change in his sleep pattern was immediate and remarkable." The manufacturer recommends beginning use of the Magic Sleepsuit when your baby is able to kick out of swaddles, but some reviewers have started earlier - as long as it's sized correctly (comfortable but snug), it should be fine.
The Baby Merlin's Cotton Magic Sleepsuit is machine-washable and machine-dryable; see the menu above for sizing and colors.
