Winter arrives, complete with snow, wind, and freezing temperatures. If you have had to switch out your child’s entire sleeping wardrobe, to include thick, warm fleecy sleepwear, you are not alone. But, if you purchase a Baby Merino Handmade Sleep Gown from New Zealand based company Poppet Baby Wear, you will not have this dilemma anymore.
The Baby Merino Sleep Gown is perfect for young babies. It has a draw string tie at the bottom to allow for quick diaper changes in the middle of the night. The sleep gown is handmade in New Zealand out of New Zealand Merino wool, which is made to breathe and keep baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It automatically regulates the baby’s body heat to a safe and comfortable temperature throughout the day and night.
My little guy, MD, is a little too busy for this sleep gown anymore, because he wants to free his legs, and likes to chew on the draw string tie. But, it works perfectly when paired with the Merino Kids sleep bag, previously reviewed here. And, I can’t wait to try it out in the rustic cabins of Blackwater Falls State Park during our annual X-country skiing trip (they are freezing…I often sleep in long underwear, hat, and wool socks). MD will be the warmest of the bunch! Maybe I’ll even buy him this Merino Kids hat or the Poppet Baby Wear Hat to go with it! Then, he will be warm all night long, instead of sweating while the fire burns hot, and then freezing once only embers remain!
These make perfect baby shower gifts! You really can’t beat the quality, soft feel of the sleep gown (it really is one of the softest materials I’ve ever felt, and does not bother my children’s sensitive skin)! Thank you to Poppet Baby Wear for sending me a Baby Merino Sleep Gown to try!
