Sleep has always been an issue with Adam. Even when he was a newborn he would prefer to be awake. 5.30am starts are an every day occurrence in our household. Adam doesn’t nap during the day and hasn’t done so for over a year. If he falls asleep in the car then he will not fall asleep until gone 9pm. Futhermore, Adam can go through periods of waking up every 20 minutes. These wakings usually start at 4am but on occasions have started at 12.30am. The lack of sleep has a knock on effect on Adam’s behaviour and my own ability to cope with every day tasks.
SnuggleSac got in touch and asked us if we would like to review their “My First Snuggle Sac.” The indoor sleeping bag is recommended by Millpond, the highly acclaimed children’s sleep clinic. The bedding ensures that an active sleeper does not wake up cold in the night with the covers on the floor.
My First Snuggle Sac is used as an alternative to conventional bedding and is specifically designed for toddlers. There is a space within the head area for a conventional pillow and a zip down one side of the sac just like a sleeping bag. The 3.4 tog bedding is suitable for use every night of the year. Best of all the My First Snuggle Sac is machine washable and can be tumble dried.
The award-winning sleeping bag seemed to good to be true! We ordered the Dalmatian Snuggle Sac through the easy to use Snuggle Sac website and it arrived a couple of days later. We love the long tail at the bottom of the bed.
Adam can be reluctant to new items and changes to his routine so I was hesitant as to whether he would like it or not. I needn’t have worried though because as soon as I got the bed out of the bag he wanted to lay down it. Straight away the Dalmation Snuggle Sac was called Adam’s “Doggy bed.”
Adam is particular about which pillow he uses so I was pleased that I could insert his usual pillow into the bed. The My First Snuggle Sac did look tiny on Adam’s bed. The sleeping bag 150cm x60cm but it fitted him perfectly.
Bed time was a huge hit that evening. He couldn’t wait to be zipped up into his “Doggy bed.” He also slept through the night – an unheard of occurrence in our household.
We have been putting the My First Snuggle Sac through its paces for the past month. Every night Adam has slept in it and I am pleased to say the night time wakings have decreased. Adam has been on two sleepovers at Nana’s house during that time and he was extremely pleased to take his “Doggy bed” with him.
True to form the Dalmation Snuggle Sac did wash extremely well and dried on the washing line quickly. I have also tested it out in the tumble dryer and it remained in its original form.
My First Snuggle Sac would be ideal for a toddler making the transition from cot to their first bed or even when the sides of the cot bed are removed. It is also perfect for day time naps, long car journeys, overnight stays away from home, taking it to nursery or even going on holiday.
Do you have an older child? Then take a look at the Original Sac. These are designed for children from the age of 3. They have all the benefits of the My First Snuggle Sac but are larger, are a 5.2 tog and there are more designs – we particularly love the Pirate Sac!
That is not all. Snuggle Sac also sells accessories – from bed tidies which attached onto the legs of any standard bed, to blankets and duvets.
Adam loves his Dalmation My First Snuggle Sac and I love getting more sleep!
