Is there such a thing as magic pajamas for babies? Yes! There are many pajama options out there, but Merlin’s magical pajamas are a little different from the others. Gabriela from our Rookie Mom Squad had the opportunity to try it out with her baby. Below are their thoughts on this popular baby product!
What is a Magic Sleep Suit?
Babies are not born because they know how to calm down to sleep. Learning how to dress properly is a crucial part of helping your baby get used to sleeping on their own. It is important that your baby’s sleeping clothes are at a comfortable temperature and that they feel safe and comfortable.
Pajamas and sleeping bags help enormously with this. Essentially, you use these to make it easier to transition out of a wrap. They make sure that your baby feels comfortable and safe. The Rookie Mom Squad tried tons of them, but there is something very special about Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit.
Now that you know exactly what pajamas are, read Gabriela’s review below to find out what sets these apart from the rest.
Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit Review
What I loved about these pajamas
It seemed difficult for my baby to be alone in the large open crib. Understandably, this can be intimidating for many little ones! We always had her swaddled, but as she got older she just wiggled out. When this happened, I knew the compress was no longer secure. We tried the Magic Sleep Suit and it seemed to bring her the same safe feeling that helped her make this big transition easy. I could see that she was comfortable and safe in the pajamas, but the ability to move her arms seemed to help make it easier for herself. How can you not love a product that brings comfort to your baby? As a mother, this is the top priority!
I also like the double zip design of Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit. This makes it easy to get ahead. This is so important because when we put it on, we are in the handling part of our routine. It also makes nappy changes easy in the middle of the night if necessary.
What I would change about Merlin’s magical pajamas
Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit is available in two different materials. Cotton and microfleece. Both are very thick, which will help keep your baby feeling safe. Both materials are quite warm, however (especially for us in sunny Southern California!). While this isn’t a deal breaker, I recommend you take care of what you put under your pajamas and keep your baby’s nursery at the right temperature.
If your baby is struggling to get out of the swaddle, I highly recommend you check out these magical pajamas! It has worked wonders to keep my baby comfortable and safe. The material is thick, but still allows your baby enough exercise to sleep comfortably.
