  • yes, gowns are safe.
    I used onesies in hot weather, different sleepers in different fabrics, the gowns, and sleep sacks. I really liked the sleep sacks, the gowns kept getting bunched up and wouldn't stay over the legs.

  • They have fleece and cotton sleepers. We personally did the footed sleepers, even in summer. They kept them warm enough without them being too hot, and they didn't get tangled up in them or anything.

  • they are like a light blanket, you can get them in different fabrics.

    I also really liked the just tshirt material Gerber brand sleepers (from walmart and stores like that) they were nice for summer.

  • I agree, sleep sacks are AWESOME but I have found that the Halo sleep sack in the picture has caused my son to overheat and get damp/sweaty so recommend you look at ones made of natural fabrics instead. Merino and cotton are best because they can breathe and coming into Fall you're best to go for merino because it can cool or heat baby depending on the room temperature.  Micro fleece is synthetic and not able to do this so your baby can wake up if he gets too hot or cold.


    I got mine from here and although it's more expensive, it's definitely worth it.  My DS is now 1 and he'll be in the sleep sack until he's 2.
