Featured Review: Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit Really is Magical!

by in Giveaway, Product Review


If you haven’t heard of Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit let me tell you that this WILL become your best friend if you have a baby who is transitioning from sleeping swaddled.

My husband and I have had a lot of luck with swaddling our son, it has permitted us to have fairly decent sleeps since he was about a month old.  The problem is that he’s really too old (at 6.5 months) to still be swaddled.  We’ve had a fear that unswaddling will lead to sleepless nights but we are also aware that if we don’t do the transition soon we could be facing a 16 year old who needs to be wrapped up to sleep in the future.

To help with this we recently started using the Sleepsuit and have been pleased with the results!  The first day we used it, we had prepared ourselves for the possibility of being woken up multiple times that night – but were pleasantly surprised that on our first try of using the suit our son’s sleep pattern didn’t change and we got just as much sleep as we did with the swaddle.

The suit was designed by mother of four and pediatric physical therapist, Maureen. The Magic Sleepsuit is designed to be introduced at approximately three months of age when most babies are growing out of swaddling and transitioning into larger more spacious cribs from smaller sleep environments (cradles, bassinets, etc.).  The Magic Sleepsuit provides babies with the comfort they need by muffling those twitches and startle-type movements that can wake them prematurely, and by keeping them cozy and secure making it easier to go to sleep on their own or fall back asleep if woken. The suit is designed to aide the baby’s sleep patterns, but also gives the parents and/or caregivers peace of mind that their baby is getting adequate rest necessary for appropriate growth and development.

The Magic Sleepsuit is currently available in three colors (pink, blue, and yellow) and two sizes (small and large). The small is designed for babies approximately 3 to 6 months of age (12-18 lbs) and the large is designed for babies approximately 6-9 months (18-21 lbs).  The Magic Sleepsuit has a cozy micro fleece outer layer, a soft cotton inner layer against the baby’s skin, and a layer of poly-fil in between for just enough warmth and comfort.  My son looks a little bit like The Stay Puft Man in it (which we think is adorable), and he seems to love it!

It is recommended that babies transition out of the Magic Sleepsuit by approximately 9 months of age, the age when babies are sitting, crawling and starting to pull to standing independently. This is also an age when good sleep patterns should be established.

In our opinion Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit is the perfect baby shower or new baby gift!

GIVEAWAY: Maureen and Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit are offering ONE Growing Your Baby reader the opportunity to win a Sleepsuit in whichever size or color is desired. (Valued at $39.95)

 

Congratulations to our winner: Christine L.

    I wish I had had a baby Merlin’s sleep suit when my son was around 5 mths of age, that’s when he started his bad sleeping habits lol. He still wakes at least twice per night. Maybe for the next one! 🙂

  2. Noura says:

    Our baby is just transitioning out of swaddling and sleep training at the same time. If this works and would ease the pains and tears, we would love it!! 🙂

  6. melissa says:

    My son is 3 months old and only naps for 30 minutes (he should be napping for 1-2 hours). I hope this magic sleepsuit will extend his naps and perhaps reduce the amount of night awakenings. I hope I win!

    This would be great for my sister’s new baby who is coming in a few weeks. It would keep him so nice and warm this winter.

  9. CHristine L says:

    I’d like one for myself; my daughter is almost 2 months. Between her and my other daughter who is in school, I feel like I could use some extra sleep..lol I also have 2 friends and a cousin who are expecting and I may just purchase them one (if it works)as I prefer to do most of my shopping online. 🙂 ZZZZZZZZ….

  33. kelly says:

    Oh, I would LOVE to try this with my son! He’s always had trouble staying asleep, he really needs the feeling of something holding or cuddling him and he startles easily. Swaddling helped for a while but he’s like a baby Houdini, I swear!
