Baby it’s cold outside!

And it’s just going to keep getting colder…for a few months anyway.


Last year I reviewed my all time favorite sleep sack (I’ve tried a LOT of sleep sacks so that’s saying something).  Look at that little guy. I know I’m biased, but he’s pretty darn cute!

Merino Kids is an internationally award winning textile company from New Zealand that specializes in using 100% natural fibers, for newborn, baby, infant and toddler sleepwear. Amie Nilsson founded the company in 2003 and has since grown Merino Kids to become one of the global leaders and commentators of using natural fibers for young children.

I highly suggest you read my review from last year and find out why the Merino Kids sleep sack is so amazing and why it is worth it’s price tag ($120 for the infant size and $140 for the toddler size).  I’m a very frugal shopper and, lest you don’t have time to read my previous review, here is just why the Merino Kids sleep sack for toddlers and babies are worth the price:

  • Quality: The Merino Kids Sleep Sack feels like a high quality baby gear item.  The organic combed cotton outer layer is luxuriously soft! It is also quite thick.  The inside of the sleep sack is lined with Superfine Merino wool.  The combination of the two make for a comfy, soft, temperature regulating wearable blanket for baby.  The stitching, snaps, and zipper are all top quality as well.  You know the phrase, “They don’t make them like they used to.”  Well, when I opened the Merino Kids sleep sack for the first time, I consciously thought, “Wow, this is like old school good quality!”
  • Longevity: While this sleep sack does cost 3-4 times what you’d pay for other brands of sleep sacks, this sleep sack will take your child through 2 years!  Yes, you heard correctly.  2 years! With other sleep sacks you’ll need to buy 4 different sleep sacks to get you through the 2 years.  When compared that way, the cost of the Merino Kids sleep sacks is comparable to other sleep sacks.
  • Wool: Wool is amazing because it is temperature regulating–meaning it will keep your baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  But here is something you might not know about wool: Wool does not retain odors!  Why is this important?  I don’t know about your kids, but my little babies often like to greet me in the morning with a dirty diaper.  STINKY!  Normally, I’d have to wash a sleep sack to get the odor out, but because of its wool lining, I simply turn the Merino Kids sleep sack inside out and by bedtime it is perfectly fresh again!
  • Versatility: The Merino Kids sleep sack is sewn with a seat belt opening in the front and back of the sleep sack allowing you to transfer your sleeping baby from car seat, stroller, or crib.

Merino Kids Sleep Sack for Toddlers

Now, putting a toddler in a sleep sack might seem like a bit of a different ballgame than putting an infant in a sleep sack, but it really isn’t.  While toddlers are often big enough to sleep in toddler beds, I haven’t met a toddler yet who stays put under the covers his mommy or daddy so carefully tucked him into. Hence the Merino Kids sleep sack for toddlers.

As would be expected, walking in the sleep sack isn’t easy.  For Little Z that isn’t a problem because I put him in the sleep sack when I lay him down in his bed and take it off again when I get him up in the morning.

  1. I like this product a lot, it's like a sleeping bag they wear. I love the cherry blossom design. This would also make a great gift for a mom to be.
