As a new parent it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to what your baby should wear to sleep.
Studies have found that sleeping babies in merino lowers their rate of activity and provides a deeper, more restful sleep. This also results in faster rates of growth. A well rested baby is a happy baby, which also makes for well rested and happy parents!
To ensure you get a good night’s sleep, we have a range of sleepwear items to suit your baby, whatever their age.
Birth to 2 years and above - blanket
Our 100% merino blankets are such a versatile item! The generous 90x100cm size means it can be used as a cosy wrap in those early days, or in the buggy when out and about. Available in a range of colours/prints to match your nursery decor.
Birth to approx 3 months - swaddle cocoono
Swaddling is the best way for a newborn to sleep for a number of reasons:
The incredibly simple design of the swaddle cocoono ensures a great fit without any fuss or instructions - you simply pop baby in and zip it up.
The incredibly soft 100% merino fabric is breathable, which reduces the risk of overheating. Plus this swaddle design has been acknowledged as “hip healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI), so you can be assured their hips are not being wrapped too tightly.
Birth to 6 months - sleepsuit
There is a reason this style of garment has been popular for so many years - it’s so practical!
The elasticated bottom of the sleepsuit makes middle of the night nappy changes a breeze, and the built-in optional scratch mitts are a great feature so baby doesn’t scratch themselves through the night.
As one mum said:
"Super soft fabric, easy to put on, great for quick nappy change without disturbing your baby too much. I also love the mittens on the arms, which keeps the hands warm all night as well as scratchfree face" - Anita
3 months to 2 years - cocoono
The double layer of 100% merino, means the cocoono is suitable to use in temperatures ranging from 16 to 24 degrees. The harness slot also makes it versatile - so you can use it in your buggy or car.
It can be hard to know how many layers your baby needs to be comfortable through the night. If you use the mokopuna cocoono, then check out this handy guide - one less thing to worry about!
