Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit Review

After reading tons of reviews and boards on baby sleep issues, we decided to try the Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit. Let me back up a bit, our girls love to be swaddled. They have been sleeping in their Halo Microfleece Sleepsack Swaddle since they came home from the NICU. The girls loved it and fell asleep right away.

Well it is getting too hot in Reno to keep using these wonderful contraptions. Example: It was 94 degrees Sunday. So we had to transition baby girls to something different. We have the Halo Sleepsacks in cotton that have no sleeves to them. We tried them one night, but the girls like their arms swaddled up (or maybe it is mommy and daddy that like their arms swaddled up). They basically go crazy and dance in them, laugh and coo. That makes it hard for them to fall asleep, and stressful for mommy and daddy. They are definitely not ready to have their arms free just yet (for the whole night. They sleep without anything in their cribs for nap time.)

Next up, the Miracle Swaddle Blankets. We actually really liked these, but the girls will break out of them between 2 and 4 am (I think it is because they are too small for them now). We tried this for about 2 weeks and we got really tired of waking up only to find the girls broken out of their swaddles and fully awake.

Enter, we tried the Merlin Magic Sleepsuit. We have been using these for about a week now and love them. The first night, they did ok, but each night it got better and better. My babies were back to sleeping from 8:30 pm to 5:30 am. And we could leave them sleeping if we didn't have to wake them to eat and get ready to go to daycare.

I was worried they would be too hot (even the cotton ones), but all the reviews state that they wouldn't. People use them in Vegas, Florida, Texas, etc. during the summer and haven't had any issues. Plus we have the air conditioner come on when it gets too hot during the night time.

Plus look how adorable Avery looks in her sleepsuit.
