Sleep sacks, swaddle sacks, cosy sacks, whatever name you call these "fitted" blankets, moms seem to feel these are a safer alternative to larger blankets.
Make sure you consider the following when making your sleep sack:
1. The sleep sack fits your baby properly.
2. The bag part of the garment to be long enough for your baby to rest comfortably, but not too big which could allow your baby to wiggle down into the bag.
3. Consider the weight of the sleep sack fabric because, although you don’t want your baby to get cold, overheating can also be a problem.
Parents really like the "snuggliness" of baby sleep sacks without worry that their baby can move all they want and not get anything over their face.
