Whoever invented the sleepsack is a genius. A safe way to keep your baby warm at night and….a way to prevent (or delay) babies from climbing out of their cribs. Cha-ching. My plan is to keep Ford in his crib as long as I can. He loves it and there is no reason to rush out of it. With baby #2 coming in the spring, the last thing I need is another transition for Ford into a big boy bed (and escaping out of his bed, etc). The first question I ask mamas whose babies climb out of their cribs is, “Do they sleep in a sleepsack?”. The answer is always no. Ford has never shown interest in climbing out of his crib and I pray that we can make it until 2.5 or 3 for a big boy bed!
I have a couple of brands of sleepsacks and am really enjoying our new Gunamuna cotton wearable blanket. You can easily tell from the picture that Ford is just in a diaper under the sleepsack. He is such a hot natured baby so the Gunapod is the perfect way to keep him cool while he sleeps (even if I put a onesie on him under the sack, he wakes up sweaty….not sure what we will do when it gets cold!). My favorite feature of the Gunamuna Gunapod is the Wonderzip system. The Gunapod opens from underarm to underarm allowing you to quickly change a diaper without having to remove it. The fabric is so, so soft and it fits generously, allowing my crazy toddler to kick and jump around. Gosh I wish they made them in adult sizes.
Gunamuna also makes Bamboo and Plush wearable blankets to cater to your baby’s specific temperature or the current season.
