I have used Sleep Bags in the past with Emerson. They are great in those newborn stages so you can prevent the use of blankets. ESPECIALLY since Emerson was born in the winter.
But I've recently heard of Merino Wool Sleep Bags from Shopping Moa.
I was able to receive the Dove Grey Sleep Bag for review. We got it in the 0-2 year size.
It snaps on ONE shoulder. And then there is a snap under each arm pit to help it stay in place.
The bottom and entire side unzips.
You can also just unzip the bottom portion for easy diaper changing.
I love this, because it can be used with a CAR SEAT!!! Or swing, bouncer etc. But I love this feature.
It's a great fit on Emerson. He still has plenty of growing room too though.
I love the car seat feature. This would be perfect to bring home baby from the hospital in. It's super thin up top so it wouldn't interfere with car seat straps, and it would be just perfect for baby to help maintain body temperature on their first outing outdoors.
But I love it for over nights. When Emerson is wearing fleece pajamas I skip this, but when he's in his cotton jammies I throw this on him and I know he'll be snuggly. He's usually pretty good about covering up though and keeping his blanket on, but this way I know he won't get cold if he gets in a deep sleep. So I know he won't freeze.
It's very thin, it's a layer of cotton on the outer and Merino Wool in the inner. So it's not heavy and it's not like a thick blanket, I know he has no problem wearing it because it's comfy and lightweight. They do sell a heavy winter weight one as well though.
I love that you can machine wash OR hand wash this bag too!! Luckily we haven't really needed to wash it yet, but I probably will be soon. I'll most likely be handwashing it because it doesn't need major cleaning.
Price: This bag is normally $120, but on sale for $99.99 right now!! It does seem pricey, but this can be used year round and you will get a good 1.5-3 years out of it really. It says 0-2 years, but if you have a little baby, you just might get closer to 3.
