Even though experts believe that it’s safe for children to have blankets in their cribs after around 12 months of age, I never had much luck with them. My son couldn’t keep his blanket on him when he was 1, and this left him chilly during the night. So, he’d wake up more often. I can’t blame him– I sleep better with a blanket on me, too. This led me to find toddler sleep sacks.
See– this is totally common, and there many companies have modified sleep sacks to accommodate toddlers. These have been a life-saver for me.
Here are my favorite toddler sleep sacks to date.

Best toddler sleep sacks for new walkers
In the early toddler days, your kiddo will likely be fine in a larger size sleep sack from their baby days.
Large and XL sizes for children around 20-30lbs.
Zips from the bottom.
Perfect for warm weather.
Best toddler sleep sacks for active walkers
Once my son was a proficient walker, we transitioned him into these sleep sacks with holes for his feet.
Perfect once kiddos start walking through 2T.
Perfect for older kids who are kicking off the covers. Sizes 2T-5T.
Multiple designs available. When my son was little, I could get whatever color/pattern I wanted to. Now that he’s older, I’m happy that HALO has a few designs of each style, so I can find something my son is sure to like, himself.
I’m grateful I found sleep sacks when my son was born. After all, better sleep leads to happier mama.
Cheers, to better sleep for all!

There are only a few years where our kiddos will permit us to rope them into (adorable) family costumes, so we have to take advantage of that while we can. There are an infinite number of costumes on the market for kids, but many of them need to be hand washed.
Raise your hand if you’ve got time to hand wash costumes.
There are some wonderful doctor toys for kids on the market now that can help you bring a doctor’s office right into your home. These toys can help children gain some control by allowing them to take a step into the driver’s seat, so to speak. Plus, they can practice empathy and creativity as well.
