What Should Babies Sleep in Under a Sleep Sack? Tips for Parents

It’s a common question: "What should babies sleep in under a sleep sack?"   Will they be too hot?  Will they be too cold?  We have a guide to help you ensure your babe is comfy and safe so you both (hopefully) get some shut eye.  

Why Get a Sleep Sack?

Sleep sacks are a popular choice for ensuring a safe and comfortable sleep environment for babies and toddlers. These wearable blankets replace loose blankets in the crib, reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and providing a secure and cozy atmosphere for your little one to rest peacefully.  Check out our blog, What is a Sleep Sack and Do I Need One?  A Guide for Parents for the full scoop on sleep sack benefits and how to choose the right one for you.


The Ideal Sleepwear Combination

When it comes to what your baby should wear under a sleep sack, safety is king and comfort is queen.  Here are some tips to consider:

  1. The Right Fit for Safety: You’ll want sleepwear that is snug fitting without being too restrictive.  Loose fitting pajamas can get bunched up causing discomfort and also potentially block their nose and mouth. 
  2. Temperature Regulation: Opt for breathable fabrics like cotton or bamboo to help regulate your baby's body temperature and ensure a comfortable sleep environment.  
  3. Comfort is Key: Choose sleepwear that is soft and gentle on your baby's delicate skin. Look for pajamas with flat seams to minimize irritation.
