Works For Me Wednesday- Sleep Sacks (and a GIVEAWAY!!)

wfmw One of the most successful campaigns to prevent SIDS has been the campaign to get you to put your baby on your back to sleep. Much to the aggravation of mothers and mother in laws everywhere who say things like, “We slept you on your stomach and you were fine.” We did the back sleeping thing with both kids cause frankly the campaign is so successful that it really scares the crap out of you to try anything else. No pillows, no blankets, no stuffed animals, just a baby in the middle of the crib. With a monitor on her turned up very loud even though you live in a tiny condo where you can hear every noise.

Now, they have added the recommendation of the fan. Apparently the fan circulates the air which helps something, I am unsure of the science. And science was my major. Look how far I’ve come professors. Anywho, the combo of the fan and no blankets leads to an added stress. Is your baby too cold? That is when I discovered sleep sacks. I had a couple of the cozy Halo ones for both my girls. But, when the people of Aden & Anais contacted me about their sleep sacks,  I was really intrigued. Their sleepsacks are made from 100% cotton muslin fabric so they are very light and breathe well. Perfect for summer or for those of you who don’t live in the tundra during winter.

Other great features: an inverted zipper so it zips up from the bottom. Much easier to deal with diaper changes in the middle of the night. Super soft fabric that apparently gets softer with every wash. Finally, super cute. Seriously, super cute. And I went ahead and got a boy one since I don’t feel like putting my little man in his sister’s pink sleep sacks. I am sure there will be enough dressing up as a princess to require therapy either way. I got this super cute one for baby #3.

I don’t know what the temp is there, but here it is HOT. The perfect weather to try out a Aden and Anais sleepsack. And I have one for you to try. You even get to pick the size and the pattern. Perfect for your little one or as a gift. To enter, just head over to their website and tell me what pattern you like in the comments. For an extra entry, tweet about this giveaway and leave me your link. That easy. I will pick a winner next Tues night.

  1. I would love the blue stars one for my nephew to be since I have no intentions on a baby anytime soon :)

  2. oooo!! how fun. i would love the treat of having a fish muslin sleeping bag for wilson.

  3. Butterflies Muslin-cute fabric, looks like a great product too!

  4. I love the blue stars one. The Halo ones are nice, but my first burned up in them, so I am excited about these ones for my new little boy who will be here in September!

  5. I like the fish muslin one. So cute!

  6. I have a set of Aden and Anais muslin swaddle blankets and I absolutely love them. We use the swaddle wraps by Kiddapotomus but it is getting too warm and she is out growing them. I would love to try the pink stars for our baby girl!

  7. fish muslin sleeping bag would love for my 2 month old thank you for the chance

    I like the elephant one (out of stock–darn!). Also, the pink stars one. And no, it’s not for me, but if I won, I’d give it to one of my dozen preggo friends.

  9. I think the plain white one is just precious! I guess cause it could be for a boy or a girl! I have never heard of these but it’s definitely good to know!

  11. Love the Bee design – yellow just pops out it would be ideal for my September arrival

  12. Lindsey says:

    I like the pink stars the best.

  13. I love the Bee one – too cute. My daughter slept in sleep sacks until she was 18 months old. I am glad to know there is a lighter weight option for the next baby!

  14. RT on twitter! http://twitter.com/vinitha

  15. Lara Murphy says:

    I adore the Pink Stars Muslin Sleeping Bag. I use no blankets and a fan (across the room) for circulation and am always checking to see if my 5 month old daughter is cold. I would love one of these and will def. pass this along to all my Mommy firneds. I would love it in a size medium or large…

  16. Amanda C. says:

    I would love to win one of these. I’ve heard a lot about them and would love to try one. I would like a white one because of the gender neutralness, but I’m totally in love with the fishies. They are so cute!

  17. I like the elephant and the bees!

  18. Amy W. says:

    I super love the little bees! Thank you for doing this!

  19. Amy T. says:

    The simple white muslin is just so versatile. A wardrobe staple!

  20. alicatstrut says:

    I love the pink stars! What a cute idea.

  21. Alyson says:

    I love the blue stars for my new nephew-to-be, and the bees or pink stars for my new niece-to-be. Wish I’d had these for my two summer babies! Maybe there’ll be another… :)

  22. Alyson says:

    RT on Twitter (I don’t know how to link it). These sacks are so cute!

  23. I would love the bee print for my niece/nephew arriving in October :)

  24. The pink stars are adorable! Perfect for my little one to be! I’m having an August baby, so I’m all about the fan and the sleep sacks. This one looks like the perfect weight!

  25. I’d totally pick the stars pattern! That should also tell you what we found out yesterday at our ultrasound even before I have the chance to announce it :)

  26. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. I really like the elephant print (even thought they are out of stock), my second choice would be the blue stars. It would be wonderful to win one for my 1 month old baby boy. Goodd luck to all.

  27. i like the blue stars. this would be perfect for my little guy due in 6 weeks!

  28. I like the yellow, because it would be great for boy or girl. My son is very hot natured, so I would love to give these a try.

  29. Bethany says:

    I love the elephant one, but since it is out of stock I would have to say the blue stars. I am expecting my first (a boy) sometime in the next couple of weeks (as soon as he decides he is ready)

  30. Ronnie says:

    I like the pink stars

  31. nicolerenae says:

    The fish pattern is really cute! Thanks!

  32. I didn’t have any type of sleep sack for Izzy- but would love them for this next little one- especially being born in the winter…I like the blue stars print!

  33. oooh I like the butterflies! and even though I never win anything, I LOVE the zipper on these so I am trying for it anyway. it’s hot here like 10 months out of the year, so this would be perfect.

    also – I think the fan thing circulates the air to make it easier for baby to breathe in oxygen (as opposed to the co2 they just breathed OUT), their little lungs don’t force the “bad air” away as well as bigger kids (nor can they turn/roll as well), so anything that helps air circulation helps.

  35. Tiffany says:

    I like the fish one because it is so different.

    I love the white one. I think it would go with anything and could be used for many years to come with many children.

  39. Boring, I know… but I would go with the white. So bleach-able. ;)

    Very cool – I love the white one, there is just something so sweet about a little baby all in white!

  42. We’re having a boy on Friday June 26. I’d love the elephant design for him.

  43. Connie R. says:

    I would pick the White Muslin one as I don’t know the sex of the baby yet.

  44. I have 1 sleep sack for my son and we use it almost every night. I would love to win another one. The blue stars is my favorite.

  45. Love the bee pattern!
