I first heard about Snuggle Sac when the nursery asked me to purchase one. The little man had been sleeping in the cot at nursery for his naps, but he was moving up to the next room and they no longer used cots. ‘Uh-oh’ were my first thoughts…… he’d always slept in a cot – how was he ever going to adjust to sleeping in the Snuggle Sac? Good luck to the nursery staff I thought…… GOOD LUCK!
When it first arrived, I was pleasantly surprised – I was just expecting a sleeping bag, but it was softest, prettiest sleeping bag I had ever seen (I secretly wanted it!). I also loved the fact it came in its own bag so could be easily transported. I was absolutely gutted to give it up and send it to nursery with him.
The next day was D day – no more COT! I prayed that he wasn’t going to be too much hard work for the staff at the nursery, and hence was quite nervous when I went to collect him at 5pm. BUT, I needn’t have worried – he slept in it first time – for TWO HOURS! I didn’t believe it, and thought it must have been a fluke. And then he did the same the next day! Apparently all he needed was a bit of patting, and he slept when all of the other toddlers slept.
I was completely intrigued how the Snuggle Sac was working so well (and they’d even managed to get rid of his dummy!) – so I was over the moon when Tina sent me a second Snuggle Sac for use at home. For the past few months I have struggled to get him to sleep for his naps at the weekend – and the transition into the cot after he had fallen asleep in my arms was getting harder and harder. So, I was very pleasantly surprised when I used it at home, and found that he happily snuggled up into it without waking up. And, for the first time in ages, he slept for nearly 2 hours ON A WEEKEND!
The Snuggle Sac has been great for naps, and as it is so compact, with its own bag, it means I can transport it with me easily. Brilliant when we are visiting people for day trips. The reason I think it works so well? Because the 100% cotton material makes it so warm and cosy, which makes it so easy to put him down into without him being too shocked by the temperature change. We wouldn’t want to be put down onto a cold sheet when asleep either!
I can’t wait to take it on holiday with us, and i’ve been told it’s brilliant for helping the transition from cot to bed – so I think i’ll have lots of uses for it in the coming years. The Snuggle Sac comes with a slot for a pillow, and I think it’s going to be a big help when transitioning from his Grobag to a big boy bed with a duvet.
Overall, a very well designed sleeping bag which I can’t wait to use for years to come – so thank you nursery for the recommendation – I can now have a few hours to myself at the weekends without having to hold the little man. And thank you Tina – for making such an awesome product……… I’m so tempted to get myself an adult version!!!!!!!! (Yes, they do grown up versions – how cool is that?!)
