Top 10 Sleep Sacks for Better Baby Sleep in 2024

Parents are often concerned about whether their baby is too cold or too hot to sleep well. And, we want babies to sleep as much as possible. When it’s time to stop swaddling your baby, we advise you to transition to a sleep sack. Here are the top 10 best baby sleep sacks that can help your sleep better, in no particular order.


Woolino 4-Season Sleep Sack

Woolino Sleep Sack

The Woolino 4 Season Ultimate Baby Sleep Bag Sack has been a top seller for over a decade and for good reason. Merino wool is very soft, hypoallergenic, and temperature-regulating. This award-winning sleep bag isn’t cheap; however, you won’t need to buy separate sacks for different seasons, AND you can use this sleep sack until the age of 2 years old. That means you won’t have to buy a new size every few months like with some of the others. It also has four shoulder snaps and a 2-way zipper for easy dressing and diaper changes. Highly recommend this sleep sack!


Zipadee-Zip Sleep Sack

Zipadeezip

We have been recommending the Zipadee-Zip for a very long time for babies struggling to move away from the swaddle, hands completely free. It’s a great swaddle transition product because your baby will likely feel more secure, allowing them to sleep better at night and at nap time. The primary feature of the Zipadee-Zip is the “wings” that cover your baby’s hands without restricting movement. There are many sizes and patterns available for purchase. The product is of great quality, and we have heard many clients rave about this sleep sack! Keep in mind that if your baby has a pacifier, you might want to wean from the Zipadee-Zip as they get older.

Love To Dream Swaddle Up

Love To Dream Swaddle

If you are in the market for a sleep sack but you aren’t sure whether your baby is ready to stop being swaddled just yet, the Love To Dream Swaddle Up Transition Bag is a great choice! It has patented zip-off “wings” so you can easily and gradually help your baby adjust to the “freedom” of being unswaddled. If necessary, you can zip on and off the wings to guide your baby to a sleep sack over time. According to most newborn sleep patterns, your baby will be ready to be unswaddled between 3 and 6 months old. Once you are ready to permanently lose the swaddle, simply keep the wings off for an easier transition.

Halo Sleep Sack

HALO Sleep Sack

The HALO Sleepsack is a classic, and a great sleep sack for babies. The most notable feature of the HALO Sleepsack is that it has a double zipper to make diaper changes easier. The sleep sack is made from polyester micro-fleece and is sleeveless to reduce the risk of overheating. And, it comes in a variety of sizes, from baby to toddler, as well as colors. It also comes with a reminder to put your baby on their back to sleep. We think this sleep sack is a solid choice, and it’s not as expensive as some of the others.


Hudson Baby Plush Sleeping Bag

Hudson Baby Sleeping Bag

The Hudson Baby Infant Sleeping Bags are soft and cozy while keeping your baby safe. The zipper closure makes it easy to put on and take off. This is so important for nighttime diaper changes! These are a great budget-friendly way to transition from swaddle to blanket while keeping your baby safe from loose bedding! They come in a variety of cute patterns and 3 sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months so you won’t have to look for a new brand as your baby grows into a toddler which is so convenient!


Baby DeeDee Sleep Nests

Baby DeeDee® sleep sacks, also called sleep nests, are highly rated and they have a patented shoulder snap design that allows you to put the sleep sack on without waking your baby. The oversized custom zipper toggle makes diaper changes very easy and they have different sleep sacks for different seasons and climates. The vision for these sleep sacks is a cocoon-like shape for maximum comfort for your baby. They also have super cute pajamas, too! USE COUPON CODE BABYSLEEPSITE for 15% Off!


Burt’s Bees Wearable Blanket

Burt Bees Wearable Blanket

The Burt’s Bees Wearable Blanket is nothing fancy but highly-rated. It is 100% cotton, comes in a variety of colors and patterns, and has a double zipper for easier diaper changes like many of the others. The price is right, and if your baby doesn’t need any “bells and whistles,” this is a great way to have a safe blanket on your baby. Keep in mind, it isn’t the warmest of blankets, so be sure to dress your baby appropriately and set the room temperature to be conducive to sleep


Simple Joy’s by Carter’s Sleeping Bag

Simple Joy Carter Sleeping Bag

These wearable blankets, Simple Joys by Carter’s are another highly-rated 100% cotton sleep sack we recommend. There is a tab on the sack that covers the zipper to keep it away from your baby’s chin and neck. That makes it harder for your toddler to unzip it (which can become a problem). These are definitely budget-friendly, given they are sold in a pack of 3, and will get the job done! The biggest drawback is finding these in larger sizes.


Amazing Baby Transitional Swaddle Sack

Amazing Baby Transitional Swaddle

The Amazing Baby Transitional Swaddle Sack is another product that can help your baby transition from swaddle to sleep sack more easily. The mitten cuffs cover your baby’s hands, which will gently suppress the Moro reflex. But, it is not as restrictive as a swaddle. This means if your baby rolls onto their tummy, they can use their arms to lift themselves up, which is important for safety. You can take one or both mittens off to allow your baby to self-soothe by using their hands and fingers. As with most of the others options, this sleep sack has a 2-way zipper to help with diaper changes and is 100% cotton.


TILLYOU All-Season Micro-Fleece Baby Sleep Bag

TILLYOU Baby Sleep Bag

The TILLYOU micro-fleece baby sleep bag is another all-season sleep sack, according to the manufacturer. This sleep sack comes in a variety of sizes and also has the double-zipper with a cover at the top to protect your baby’s skin. This is not a fancy sleep sack and comes in basic colors. If you like simple, this is a great choice for you and your baby.
