Remember the Magic Sleepsuit? Let’s see if this helps refresh your memory:
Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit was invented by Maureen Howard, a pediatric physical therapist and a mother of four. It was designed for babies who are approximately 3 months of age and have been swaddled, but are beginning to grow out of that stage. The Magic Sleepsuit provides babies with the cozy and secure sleep environment that they became so accustomed to with swaddling. It aids in making a positive transition into that spacious crib, and promotes back sleeping which all mothers know is the best sleep position for reducing the risk of SIDS.
We first purchased the Magic Sleepsuit when Claire was going through her “four-month wakeful” period — only napping 30 minutes at a time and waking up 5x a night. Not only were J and I exhausted, Claire was plain miserable and I was willing to try anything to help my daughter sleep better.
The first time we used the Magic Sleepsuit Claire took a 1.5 hour nap — her longest in weeks! — and she only woke up twice that night. We thought the first day was just a fluke, but for the next few days she continued to sleep better than she had for weeks and I could only credit the Sleepsuit.
I have talked about the Magic Sleepsuit in my sleep-training post and stated how it helped us wean Claire from swaddling, and how it has become an essential part of our bedtime routine as we used it as a sleep-training tool.
I have also listed the Magic Sleepsuit in my favorite baby items post because we truly believe that it helps Claire sleep better and for longer periods of time.

If I win I’ll give this to my friend Holly. She and her husband are expecting their first child in May! 🙂
I “liked” your post. 🙂
This would be so useful for our little seedling who is making his/her debut in June!
…and I liked your post!
Honestly, I could use one of these right now. Baby girl is about to hit three months and she’s Houdini with the swaddling anymore. I’m typing this after a ridiculously long night of waking up every hour and a half. Fingers crossed that I win!
I would use the sleepsuit for my own baby due early November 🙂
This would be for my bestie’s son, Ted, who is getting his arms out of the Kidoppotamus!
I would love to win this for my daughter, Bridget! She is 4 months old, and she wakes up multiple times during the night and seems to always break out of her swaddle now.
I also tweeted about it (@ritzgrrl)!
Aaaaand finally, I liked it on Facebook.
This would be for my baby girl – I’m due in September and kind of dreading the lack of sleep!
I also “liked” this post.
I’d use this for my little turkey, due later this year. I’m so glad to hear that it worked for you!
I would love this for myself and our little girl that we’re expecting in June. I really wanted to try one of these after your review!
I would totally give the sleepsuit to my niece who is just about 3 months.
I liked this on fb.
And I tweeted. Can you tell I’m going for the good aunt award?
I’d love this for my five month old!
I’d love to win this for my friend who just had a baby this month – I’m sure it will come in handy for her soon!
I would use this sleep suit for my own baby (my first) due September 19th.
I “liked” it too! It would be for baby Leo…who is at the 2 month mark- won’t swaddle to save his life- and I would LOVE to sleep for longer than 2 hrs at a time 🙂
Yay! This would be for my son (eek, I said “my son”) who is due in August, which means he’ll be transitioning from a swaddle just when the weather starts to get cool. Our house is also cool, so I’ve been assuming we’ll need some sort of safe blanket solution. Plus, Claire looks adorable in it!
This is already on my list of giftable items for my newest neice due in May.
It would be for my baby girl Faith who just hit 3 months last week! She is up every 1-2 hrs now :0(
im throwing a baby shower for my friend susan, this would be perfect for her.
The sleepsuit would be for me! Well, not ME, but my son, who is due August 16. I like to be prepared and while I wouldn’t be using it for several more months, I would love to have it for when that time comes. Thanks for the opportunity!
I tweeted! http://twitter.com/#!/FamilyAndFur/status/57492389522182146
And I ‘liked’ the post as well. Thanks Jenny!
I would use the sleepsuit for my very own baby due this fall!
Ohhh I would love to win this! I don’t have a child but I would definitely gift it to my cousin and her newborn baby! It’s my cousin’s first child so she has had tons of sleepless nights lately and this would be wonderful for her!
