Merino Sleep Sack Review

If you have been following my newborn summaries, you know that I am loving the Merino Sleep Sack. Keep reading to see how to enter to win product from them as well as how to get a discount code. We received a free sleep sack in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.

Just a normal looking sleeper, right? No! It is made from Merino wool. What is Merino wool? Here is a description:

Merino wool is nature’s smart fiber and the fabric of our times. Soft as silk, yet durable. Warm yet breathable.

Merino has the remarkable ability to regulate body temperature. It captures and circulates air to insulate baby when the room temperature falls, and releases excess body heat and moisture as the room temperature rises. Baby stays warm and dry through night and day without overheating.

Research shows merino is the ideal fabric for baby sleep sacks. A 2010 AgResearch study determined that babies sleeping in Merino Kids’ newborn merino sleep sack are less likely to overheat or to become damp or chilled compared with synthetic polar fleece sleep sacks.


It is pricey. Spendy. But it is worth it. It really works. I put Brinley in it in her swaddle blanket–so she is all swaddled up inside. She has slept perfectly ever since. I think she was cold at night. This blanket is so great because it keeps baby at the perfect temperature without you having to guess exactly how to dress baby each night. And it is a blanket that can’t be pulled over baby’s head. I told my husband after trying it I would totally buy it. I don’t get anything for saying it–and I wouldn’t recommend a product that is so expensive, especially in this economy, unless I really believed in it. It is sized up to 2T, so you can get two years of wear out of it. Definitely a product that I recommend.

    Amy, I have a kolcraft, but we got it about 6 years ago so I don't know how they are now. Look on amazon. My rule is it needs a rating of at least 4. Read reviews to see what people thought. Good luck!

    This luxurious toddler baby sleeping bag will save you buying lots of different sizes and TOG ratings as it comes in one standard size that fits children 2-4 years old and it can be used year-round.
