Sleep sacks really are the best replacement for loose blankets.
Sleep sacks are the perfect way to ensure your baby or toddler stays cozy and warm without overheating. Even the hospital where I delivered my babies understands the value of sleep sacks—every newborn goes home with one! They truly are the best alternative to loose blankets, which aren't safe for babies and can be tricky for toddlers who move around like crazy in their sleep.
If your little one is growing out of their sleep sacks and entering toddlerhood, but you're not ready for blankets just yet, there are a variety of sleep sacks that come in extended sizes.
Wearable blankets aren't just a must-have for infants, they're a great option for toddlers, too.
Plus, a toddler that wears a sleep sack can't really climb out of the crib the way a toddler without the sleep sack barrier might be able to...just saying! Warmth isn't the only reason we love toddler sleep sacks.
Without further ado, here is a roundup of the best toddler sleep sacks so you and your kiddo can sleep safely and soundly all night long.
This adorable wearable blanket is soft, comfy, and made from high-quality material. It's made of bamboo jersey fabric, which is great for toddlers' sensitive skin. There's a dual zipper, which means it opens at the top and the bottom so zipping up at bedtime or after a diaper change is a cinch! There's a tab that covers the zipper so it protects your toddler's chin and keeps them from unzipping themselves through the night. This sleep sack fits toddlers up to 36 months.
This sleep sack is made from 100% organic cotton and comes in three different striped colors. It's light and cool, making it a great option for summer nights. There's a two-way zipper for your convenience, too. This sleep sack also goes up to size 36 months.
We all love a good muslin blanket, right? They're so soft, comfortable, and durable. This toddler sleep sack comes in that same popular muslin material, which means it's light but also keeps your little one warm enough through the night. This one comes in a variety of patterns and colors, and goes up to size 36 months.
Sometimes toddlers are little Houdinis, right? They can figure out how to get unzipped and undressed in the blink of an eye. Luckily, this Kyte Baby Sleep Walker is for your kiddo on-the-go. The soft fabric keeps body heat in while allowing mobility. It comes in tons of adorable colors and can fit toddlers up to 4T!
This sleep sack made from organic jersey cotton is great for safe sleep while offering a warm, cozy, and comfortable wearable blanket.
