noah is like a sardine in his carter's 0-9mo sleep sacks. where can i get bigger sized ones, and when can i stop putting him in it all together? on the nights he falls asleep before i can put it on, i'm always so afraid he'll get cold during the night...

Hi Mindy, We use these too for both kids. Robert is 27mo and still has a sleep sack. I know Shelley's twins still have them too. Her kids are closer to 3. The ones for older kids have little feet cutout. He is so cozy in that sleep sack! The brand we have is Halo. I've seen them at BRU, I think. I've purchased them online, and at a local store. Just google halo sleep sack. I give this product two thumbs up!

Mindy-


I stopped using sleep sacks once my kids could pull to a standing position.

I've been thinking about what to do for Zac too since he's just about out of these.

Nan, my kids wear fleece footie jammies under their fleece halo blankets. At night we keep the house around 65. The kids seem perfectly cozy to me. As weather gets warmer, we'll switch to cotton footie jammies. Only on the hottest nights when the house doesn't cool under 70-ish will we forgo the halo altogether. Thats pretty rare around here though. HTH

Sara almost immediately hated her sleep sacks - if she couldn't kick her feet around she wanted NOTHING to do with it. So in the winter we put her in a long sleeve onsie - long socks that went almost to her butt cheeks and a sleeper jammie - we keep our house at about 64 as well but we have a small air heater in her room to keep it closer to 68 or 70 - she sleeps fine. In the warmer months we start by going to a short sleeve onsie under the jammies - then no onsie - then a long sleeve onsie and light weight jammies - you get the picture. Just think about how you would dress at night for the appropriate temp and add a layer that would act as a blanket for you and me.

Speaking of blankets - when do they become ok to use?
