This might be the cutest baby product I’ve reviewed… of course being owl obsessed I’m loving the sweet little owls found on this sleep sack! I was so excited for the opportunity to review this and be able to use it with our sweet new Baby Bird… and OWLS!!!!
How adorable is that? I received this in the mail while I was still pregnant with Bird, but I immediately opened the clear package to inspect the fabric… so so soft. Perfect for a newborn with sensitive skin! Boogie and Bubby both loved being swaddled when they were born, so I had high hopes that Bird would be the same way. I was a little surprised at the size of the swaddle, though I knew that most swaddles were big on my newborns anyways.
I love the lining of this swaddler, it’s incredibly soft, fluffy and warm… and when you have winter babies like we do, you have to have warm layers for night time! I washed this as instructed, it came out just as soft as it was in the packaging but the label on the front fell off. That’s no big deal, but good to know if you buy one yourself. My label actually attached to another blanket, but luckily (and thankfully) it came off no problem.
Baby Bird is a little over 2 weeks old and we’ve used several different types of swaddle blankets and sleep sacks… this baby does NOT like to be swaddled. But that doesn’t affect my review for this sleep sack… I’m still in love with it and hoping I can sweet talk this girl into loving being swaddled!
See that expression? That is Baby Bird’s signature “What the heck are you doing to me?” look… she uses it a LOT. And one thing that drives me crazy is that the print is upside down on this side… not sure if all the sleep sacks that Jammies sell are like this, but it’s driving me crazy. But that’s just the OCD in me being obnoxious, it’s not a deal breaker and doesn’t hinder how you use the sack.
For this little mini photo shoot Baby Bird cooperated pretty well… she still wasn’t impressed but she didn’t yell at me for putting her in the sleep sack! And how cute is she?
As you can see in this last picture, even at 2 weeks old it still swallows her whole, but I like the fact that that means she can use it longer! Overall I’m very impressed with the quality of this product and would recommend it if you’re looking for a super snuggly way to swaddle your baby!
