Most posts on this blog are related to children with special needs. However, I would like to share a great product invented by a fellow pediatric physical therapist called Magic Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit. Above you can watch a demonstration of an adorable little baby trying it on.
I recently bought one for my 4 month old to help with our transition to the crib and out of the swaddle. It is a big puffy suit with open hands and feet. Its heavy and stiff enough to stop those startles that open wake up baby, but flexible enough for baby to suck on his fingers or wiggle around to self soothe.
Our first night in the suit, my little princess put herself to sleep as peacefully as an be. She has continued to do that ever since. She’s still waking up 1-3 times a night, it hasn’t been a sleep through the night magic, but it led to a smooth crib transition and I highly recommend it.
If you have a 3 month or older baby and are looking for something other than the swaddle to help your little one sleep, check out Magic Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit.
