The Magic Sleepsuit is designed to be introduced at approximately three months of age when most babies are growing out of swaddling, transitioning into larger more spacious cribs from smaller sleep environments (Rock N Play, bassinet, etc.), and able to sleep for longer stretches without parental intervention (holding, nursing, rocking, etc.). The Magic Sleepsuit provides babies with the comfort they need by helping to muffle their twitches and startle-type movements that can wake them prematurely, and by keeping them cozy and secure making it easier to go to sleep on their own or fall back asleep if woken. The Magic Sleepsuit is designed to help with baby's sleep patterns, but also gives the parents and/or caregivers peace of mind that their baby is getting adequate rest necessary for appropriate growth and development. It is recommended that babies transition out of the Magic Sleepsuit once they are able to roll over in it, since this is typically a sign that they are ready for more movement in their sleep, and the Magic Sleepsuit is specifically designed for the back sleeping position.
The Magic Sleepsuit is designed to be used in the crib for back sleeping only, the recommended position for sleep to reduce the risk of SIDS. It is not recommended for co-sleeping or in the Rock 'N Play. The Magic Sleepsuit helps eliminate the need for blankets and other loose bedding, which is consistent with many recommendations to prevent SIDS. The Magic Sleepsuit is designed to be used in a room of an appropriate temperature (SIDS prevention guidelines recommend baby's room be kept on the cooler side).
The Magic Sleepsuit can become a consistent part of baby's sleep routine that the baby associates with sleep. This can be a benefit when traveling because a pack-n-play and/or travel crib can be a strange environment, yet the Magic Sleepsuit is familiar.
