Summer is quickly approaching. We’ve had the air conditioning and ceiling fans going on all month now here in South Carolina. We’ve moved our winter clothes into storage and are opting for the cooler capris, shorts, and tee shirts. Clara, too, needs a little less warmth as she continues to get bigger and more acclimated to life outside of Mommy. During the day, she still wears her long sleeve Onesies and sleep-n-plays most of the time because of the air conditioning, but we are no longer using the heavy blankets to keep her warm. At night, we have been using the baby deedee sleep nest duvet cover to keep Clara snug as a bug without kicking off the covers as she loves to do now that she is bigger and stronger. With a nice warm summer, I don’t want her to overheat, so we are switching her sleeping gear to the baby deedee sleep nest lite. It is a double layered, super soft, lightweight cotton jersey sleep sack, designed to keep baby comfortable in warmer climates.
Just like the baby deedee sleep nest, the baby deedee sleep nest lite has snaps on the shoulders for easy on and off changing – even while Clara is sleeping, I can slide on the sleep nest. baby deedee sleep nest patented this design! It also has the uber-cool reverse zipper so that Mommy can change the diaper without disturbing baby too terribly much. I also like the reverse zipper because the metal part has no chance of nicking Clara’s chin if by chance it is turned upwards.
The sleep nest contributes to a better night’s sleep for Clara and, thus, a better night’s sleep for Mommy and Daddy and the rest of the family. She can be the squirmy wormy that she is without throwing the covers off and being cold.
I love that the baby deedee sleep nest lite and baby deedee sleep nest are extra long to accommodate my longer baby and to give her room to grow. She outgrew her other sleep sacks within the first four weeks!
The baby deedee sleep nest lite is all cotton so I am not worried about skin irritation or washing the sleep sack if she happens to spit up or soil it (which happens quite often!). I just throw it in the wash with the rest of our laundry and it is good to go the next night. The jersey knit is ultra-soft: just like my favorite tee shirts that I sleep in, and it comes in some very cute colors.
It is intended to be worn over your baby’s regular sleepwear and replaces traditional blankets. As with any product, I love that it is made RIGHT HERE in the United States!
The only thing missing with the baby deedee sleep nest lite is the cool glow-in-the-dark zipper. It’s such an awesome feature on the baby deedee sleep nest. Our new house is REALLY dark at night. It took some getting used to when we first moved in. The plus side of a really dark house is that glow-in-the-dark products work REALLY well. I can see Clara in her crib all the way across the room with her baby deedee sleep nest on. Of course, the sleep nest lite is so perfect for summer and our nights are shorter so I am not missing that feature as much now; it’s just so cool to have anything that glows-in-the-dark (yes, I am a total geek!).
