What Should My Baby Wear During Sleep?

Sleeping Baby Girl

When your baby is ready to make the transition from swaddling, there are a few things to keep in mind when picking out clothes for them to wear while they sleep. You want something that is comfortable, breathable, and easy to change. Here are a few tips on how to find the right clothing for your baby to wear while they sleep.

Comfort is Key

Baby clothing should be soft and gentle on the skin. It should not be too tight or too loose. You also want to make sure that the clothing is the right thickness for your environment. 

Next, consider the ease of changing. You will likely need to change your baby’s diaper several times throughout the night. Look for clothing that is easy to take off and put on. Snaps or Velcro closures are often the easiest. Avoid clothing with a lot of buttons or other complicated closures.

Finally, think about the ease of cleaning. Look for clothing that can be easily washed and dried. Stain-resistant fabrics may be helpful.

With these tips in mind, let’s take a look at three great options for your baby’s nighttime clothes.


Designed with comfort and safety in mind, the Magic Sleepsuit is made to keep your baby cozy as they transition from the swaddle. The Sleepsuit allows your baby to feel comfortable and contained to help aid their sleep. 

The Magic Sleepsuit features a scooped neckline, which helps to keep fabric away from the baby’s face, sleeves that help soothe startles, and a soft cotton interior. It also has open hands and feet, allowing the baby to self-soothe and helping regulate their temperature. 

This sleepsuit is an amazing option for babies ready to make the important developmental step of transitioning from swaddling. 

Sleep Sacks 

The Magic Dream Sack is a wearable blanket that helps your baby transition from the Magic Sleepsuit. It is designed with the same fabric as the Sleepsuit and it allows your baby freedom of movement as they get older. 

The Dream Sack utilizes the same materials as the Sleepsuit, which helps provide your baby with a familiar sense of comfort, and security so that they can continue to sleep well as they grow. 

Walking Sleep Sack

This Dream Sack Walker features foot holes at the bottom of the suit for their legs, giving older babies the chance to move around and even stand in their cribs. The Magic Dream Sack Walker is designed to be comfortable, cozy, and flexible, perfect for babies who need that additional movement. 

This is the next step in our Magic Sleep System that utilizes the same material as the sleepsuit and sleep sack. With a cotton inner layer and your choice of microfleece or cotton exterior layer, the Magic Dream Sack Walker will keep your baby cozy, protected, and happy.

If your baby is ready for that transition from swaddling to nightclothes, consider the Magic Sleepsuit, which will be a fantastic first step on that road.
