I received this sleep nest as a gift and love it! The cotton is very soft and fluffy. I'm not sure how the fabric holds up after many washings, since I've only washed it a few times so far. This product is perfect for chilly winter/spring nights, when you know that your baby will kick off blankets but you don't have a heater. After using the Miracle Swaddle and Halo cotton sleep sacks, this is a nice, much warmer alternative. Pros: the top snaps make placing baby inside easier; this is great if you have a wiggly child, like I do! If you're wondering about the size, my little guy is about 16 pounds and the Medium size (16-26 lbs) is pretty nice for now. It's long and roomy enough for him to grow into it, but he's still snug and comfortable in it. I actually wish that I had know about this product earlier.
This is the best toddler duvet I have seen out there, by M balie, By product ever, DL, New York
I have used baby deedee products since my 2 children were born. Once my youngest outgrew his sleep nests and was in a toddler bed I realized it was impossible to find a toddler quilt big enough to actually cover a toddler. The quality is super nice and you don't need a sheet. My son loves his so much he won't let us put it in the wash, we have to wash and dry the quilt when he is at preschool! Highly recommend this, it is really worth the money.
Great gift, By M Gray, Boston
This was a gift for new parents. They loved it, and said that they hadn't received anything like it. It seems like a product that will get a lot of use, and, as it is a little unusual, it seems like a good bet as a gift that won't need to be returned.
Do not buy anything else!, By ontologicalmama
We love, love, love baby dee dee sleep sacks! I bought my first last winter for my then 7 month old as she wasn't ready for blankets. It worked out great! warm, easy to clean, quick to dry. if the house got warmer in the spring/fall I put her in a onesie with socks and the sleep sack and in cold winter, we did long sleeve shirt and pant cotton jammies and she seemed comfortable. After 2 years of use, I have yet to find her sweaty or cold at night.
Awesome Lite Sleepsack, By kamy (Orange County, CA)
It's 2 layers of soft jersey material with a sturdy zipper and shoulder snaps. I have used other cotton sleep sacks, but I prefer this one. It's better quality, feels more cozy and you can't beat the convenience of having the shoulder snaps. When my son was younger, looping his arms through the arm holes wasn't that big of a deal, but now that he's 7 months old, he is super squirmy and tries to resist! It's makes things soooo much easier. Trust me, shoulder snaps are the way to go! Since the nights in Cali don’t get super cold, I was debating whether to buy this one or the thicker Deedee sleep nest. I have since found out that my son needs both. Now that it's getting closer to winter and it's raining/freezing cold at night, there is no way the thinner sleep nest can keep my son warm enough at night. I recommend getting both.
Perfect for cool evenings and a wiggly baby, By BLR
This product is very soft and I wished we had found it earlier. We purchased for our 8 month old and now she is 11 months old and quite long (tall). We can no longer use it but we made it through all our winter travel and we felt she was warm enough and could move around in it. It is very soft and a lovely product. Worth the price.
Best sleep sack - worth the extra $$, By Christie Wang (San Francisco, CA United States)
I had bought another sleep sack brand before this one - but this brand & color is by far my favorite. The snaps at the shoulder are key! They make it so much easier to put a sleeping baby into - you can slip him in and not worry about putting his arms through the little holes. Plus - this is more like a sleeping bag and has a fluffier lining which keeps him warmer than the regular fleece sacks. Highly recommend this one!
Excellent Sleep Sack, By Chicago Mom (Chicago, IL United States)
I've tried both these and Halo sleep sacks on my five month old, and I much prefer these. The material is soft, the zipper is very sturdy and most importantly the shoulders snap (you don't realize how important this is until you've tried to get a sleepy infant to put his arms through little non-stretchy arm holes in the middle of the night). Plus the zipper does kind of glows in the dark. They're worth it -- I have two and am very happy with them.
Safe and warm sweet one, By LittleA
My husband and I are very pleased with our sleep nest. Not only does it keep our baby warm in his own crib, it served as something familiar for our baby as we stayed with family over the holidays. I had comfort and peace of mind knowing my baby was safely warm at night, and I slept better because of it!
Love Sleep Nest Light, By Mara
I bought the Sleep Nest Lite for our son a couple of month ago. We’ve already have been using the Sleep nest (regular) since he was born. The Lite version is the perfect addition for when it gets warmer. He seems to be warm in cozy while he is sleeping without sweating. Since we travel a lot, it is a lite piece which gives him comfort wherever we are.
I can highly recommend this product!
