What age did you stop using the sleep sacks? What did you use after to keep your LO warm and snuggly? My dd is 5 months and she is rolling over now but seems like the sleep sacks inhibit her moevement.

My dd is now 7 months and I still use one. I feel she would get cold with a blanket as it could come off. I would rather her stay warm and perhaps sleep a bit Maybe the sleep sack is too small or try a different brand.

We haven't been using one since it's gotten warmer out. We just use heavier jammies and my dd sleeps pretty good. She's 6 months btw. I think for the fall and winter we'll go back to them though.

The sleep sack is huge and I'm an idiot because she probably can't move because I still have her in the ba__sinet. LOL - But what age do you stop using them altogether? After a year?

I stopped using one when it started getting warmer...I don't think I will go back to it though because I think at this stage (5.5 months old) ds will probably just get irritated with it. He LOVES to play with his toes!! He wears pjs and has a light loosely knitted blanket in his crib that he holds onto & sucks on (its his blankie). Oh, about him getting cold possibly...we can adjust the temp in each room in our house so he is always warm enough.

We stopped at about 5/6 mos. because DS would get his legs all tangled up in them and wake up screaming, lol. We switched to footed pajamas and that worked like a charm. Now that it's summer and it's warm out, he sleeps in a onesie or whatever is easy. He's 10 mos. I think we'll stick with the footed pajamas from now on. ~spam

Gretta - we use a fleece oversuit type thing - sleepsuit first and then this thing ,its great for when they are starting to move, you don't have to orry about them kicking of blankets or - later - trying to stand and getting tangled in a sleep sack...Happened to our dd one time...oops!

You can use a sleep sack for a loooong time. They even make them for older toddlers, but they are a little different- so they can get up and walk around. My daughter is almost 20 months and still uses a sleep sack. I couldn't find big ones in the stores, but you can online. I was surprised and happy to find that she'll be able to have sleep sacks for a while longer. they are so great because they keep her warm. It is just part of her routine now to go in a sleep sack to sleep.

To give your baby the best of each and every one of us, we need to give sleep and sleep safely to our bodies, while our mothers are busy with other tasks. I for that reason buy a device that helps both. Recently I read the article called best baby monitor hub, the review is very good so I want to share this for everyone to read together.
