Home / Toddler / Toddler Shopping Guides The 9 best sleep sacks for toddlers who always kick their blankets off Sleep sacks really are the best replacement for loose blankets. By Cassandra Stone and Sara Goldstein Updated February 6, 2023 Millimilli We independently select and share the products we love—and may receive a commission if you choose to buy. 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 baby 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. Wearable blankets aren’t just a must-have for infants, they’re a great option for toddlers, too! 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 toddler sleep sacks that come in extended sizes. How to choose the best sleep sack for toddlers Chances are, you’re already familiar with TOG ratings. For the uninitiated, TOG (Thermal Overall Grade) is a standardized unit of measurement that calculates how much warmth a textile provides. The higher the rating, the more insulation. The lightest TOG rating for sleep sacks is generally around 0.5 which is perfect for summer sleeping while ratings up to 3.5 would be used for super cold climates or camping. Choose a weight that’s best for the season, or opt for a mid-weight style knowing you can always dress them in warmer (or cooler) pajamas underneath. Another factor to consider is potty training. If your toddler is waking in the night to use the bathroom, a toddler sleep sack with legs would be best. Pro tip: 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. Best toddler sleep sacks MiliMili • $48 Kona Banana Wearable Blanket MiliMili knocks it out of the park with all their colorful sleep sacks, but the Kona Banana print is our ultimate favorite. The adorable wearable blanket is soft, comfy, and made from high-quality 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. As one of the longest on the market, it will fit kids up to 42″tall. SHOP TealBee • $34.99 Dreamsuit This mid-weight walker sleep suit is made from a buttery soft bamboo cotton blend that’s super breathable, making it a great year-round option. The quilted design is lightly padded which makes it feel more like a toasty blanket than a pair of pjs. That said, it’s not at all bulky, so it’s still easy to move and groove. And if you’ve got a binky addict on your hands, there’s even pockets to stash a spare.😉 SHOP baby deedee • $29.71 Fleece Kicker Sack A cozy, mid-weight sleep sack that’s perfect for movers and shakers! The walker-style bag is made from soft and snuggly fleece that layers well for year-round use and fits kiddos up to 41.5 inches tall. The dark colors are a nice touch for toddlers who can’t help but get everything they wear stained within five hot seconds but our favorite feature are the pockets. What do sleep-bound toddlers have to hold onto? Who’s to say. But they can always find something, right? SHOP Woolino • $124.99 Four Season Merino Wool Sleep Sack A top-rated favorite across all their styles, the Australian brand Woolino gets high marks for quality and durability. At $124.99, it’s certainly pricey but the built-to-last merino wool style is designed for four season wearability, keeping little ones cool in the summer and warm when the temperatures drop. It features an inverted zipper for easy diaper changes, shoulder snaps and under-arm snaps to adjust the fit. But our favorite feature? Seatbelt slots that make the transition from car ride naps to bedtime bliss easy-peasy. (Well, as easy as it ever is, right?) SHOP ergobaby • $35 On the Move Sleep Bag Got a hot sleeper on your hands? ergobaby’s walker style is made from 100% cotton which is light and cool. It also makes it a great option for summer! The style is actually a 2-in-1 as it can convert to a traditional sleep sack if you’d rather keep the options open. There’s a two-way zipper, but the totally clutch feature is the seatbelt slot. No more waking them up when it’s time to get ready for bed! Zip them up before you hit the road (or the sidewalk) and you’ll marvel at just what a pro you are. (This sleep sack is sized up to size 36 months and measures up to 38″ long.) SHOP Molis & Co. • $24.99 Muslin Sleep Sack 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.

There are a ton of gorgeous muted colors which all pair beautifully with their cozy footies and is sized up to 4T.
