At Baby Merlin, we designed our popular Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit to meet babies’ sleep needs while adhering to medical safety. We love the reviews from our customers and take pride that our baby sleep suit helps babies sleep more soundly.
When we heard parents who loved the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit asking for next steps to sound sleep for their babies, we listened. We know that a good night’s rest is priceless for both parents and babies alike, so we worked hard to develop products that can support safe and comfortable sleep all the way up to 18 months of age.
We are excited to introduce Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack and Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack Walker, products that are specially designed to help parents smoothly transition from the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit into the next stages of their babies’ sleep needs. In this post, we’re answering your questions and outlining all the need-to-know details on these new products.
Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit has helped countless babies improve their quality and duration of sleep during swaddle transition. Now, Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack answers the question “what’s next?”
Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack and Dream Sack Walker are two new products in our three-stage process for ensuring excellent and safe sleep for your baby:
For babies who begin breaking out of or showing signs of rolling in a traditional swaddle (ages 3–6 months [small]; 6–9 months [large]).
For babies who begin to show signs of rolling in Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit (ages 6–12 months).
For older babies who are even more mobile and ready for more freedom movement (ages 12–18 months).
From swaddle transitioning to allowing a greater range of movement, each of these products is designed to suit your baby’s particular age and sleep needs.
Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack is a baby sleep sack made to follow the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit so that babies can continue to sleep well in the comfortable fabrics they love. Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack allows the freedom of movement your little one is asking for in the next stage of their development.
Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack has a soft cotton inner layer that feels cozy on baby’s skin and a cotton or microfleece exterior layer for extra comfort. It also has a two-way zipper to make diaper changes more convenient and simplify taking the Baby Merlin’s Dream Sack on and off.
Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack Walker, the third stage in our Magic Sleep System, has snug leg holes to maintain that familiar, comfortable feeling for your baby while also giving a greater range of mobility as they get older.
Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack and Baby Merlin’s Dream Sack Walker are designed to be cozy as wearable blankets and eliminate the need for loose blankets in the crib, allowing us to fulfill Baby Merlin’s mission of providing a safe sleep environment for babies consistent with AAP and FDA guidelines.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that you stop swaddling as soon as a baby shows signs of rolling. However, once your baby begins to roll while in the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit, it’s time to make the transition to Stage Two of our Magic Sleep System—Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack.
Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack allows this freedom and encourages safe sleep once the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit is no longer suitable for your baby’s needs.
With many parents on our own staff, we understand that when you find a product that works for your baby, the last thing you want to do is transition away from it. Routines are key to keeping your baby happy and healthy, and that includes maintaining a consistent sleeping environment.
That’s why we developed the Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack to be as similar to the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit as possible and meet your baby’s growing sleep needs. Baby Merlin’s Magic Dream Sack is made from the same cozy materials as the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit, so your baby can continue to sleep soundly as they are comforted by the fabrics and feel they have come to know and love.
Baby Merlin is dedicated to improving babies’ sleep conditions in safe ways so everyone gets a better night’s rest. Our three-stage sleep system is designed to help both babies and parents get the rest they need and deserve. After all, a well-rested baby is a happy baby, and that makes for happy parents, too!
