Are sleep sacks safe for 6 month olds?
Yes, sleep sacks are safe for 6-month-old babies and into the toddler years. The benefit of a sleep sack is that they are a comfortable and safe alternative to blankets, which should never be used in a crib. When used properly and sized correctly, wearable blankets keep your little one warm without overheating, which can be a risk factor for SIDS.
Can a 1 year old use a weighted sleep sack?
A one-year-old can absolutely use a 12-month sleep sack as long as you follow the weight-determined sizing instructions . Many parents find when they use a sleep sack for a one-year-old, it signals naptime/bedtime and gives baby cues that it's time to sleep.
Can my 2 year old use the sleep sack?
While most 2-year-olds are past the point where blankets are a suffocation risk, sleep sacks are still considered a safe and comfortable alternative. Many toddlers kick off their blankets at night or during naptime, making a sleep sack the perfect option to keep them covered and cozy.
Are baby sleep sacks necessary?
Baby sleep sacks are an excellent way for baby to maintain a safe body temperature and avoid overheating. They also provide a gentle cuddle/hug effect that's comforting, much like being held in their caregiver's arms. Many parents find sleep sacks more convenient than traditional pajamas, and babies love having the ability to move their legs in the sack freely. Sleep sacks can also help avoid the risk of the baby's legs getting caught in crib rails.

We have meticulously designed our weighted sleep sack for use from infancy into toddlerhood. A one-year-old can enjoy the benefits of the evenly distributed weight, which will increase relaxation and reduce stress.

Do babies wear clothes under swaddle?
Your baby can wear clothes under the swaddle sack. However, it is not absolutely necessary. Many parents use a onesie or lightweight pajama, but it depends on the temperature in the room. To avoid the risk of SIDS, you never want baby to overheat while sleeping. Our weighted sacks have a 0.6 tog so that they can comfortably wear them year-round.
