Cozy Up To Kaloo!

I'm a huge fan of baby sleeping bags. They keep your precious little ones warm, and you don't have to worry with blankets or extra bedding in the crib. The sleep sac, or “Gigoteuse”, has been a European tradition for generations, and they are increasing in popularity here in the States. Sleepssacks in general reduce the risk of SIDS because it keeps babies on their backs and prevents them from overheating. They are safe for babies and most can accommodate children up to 18 months or older.
Kaloo's sleeping bags are available in two sizes. The small sleepsack is perfect for newborns and will keep your child warm for the first six months! Kaloo's sleepsacks keep your child secure, while giving your child the freedom to kick their legs and not get frustrated. Since they cannot kick off the sleepsack they stay warm and content, allowing tired parents to also sleep through the night! The large sleepsack is perfect for children 6 months through 18 months! It features safety ties on each side of the torso to prevent your little one from slipping into the sack. The Kaloo 123 Large Sleepsack that we received also features a little plush bunny friend that slips through a tiny loop. This little friend is perfect for keeping your little one company through the night! The microfiber sacks are wonderful to touch and they are machine washable. You can toss them in the dryer too!

Kaloo's Doudou Bear is a plush cotton and microfiber security blanket for babies and toddlers. They arrive beautifully boxed and ready to give. Your little ones will carry them everywhere. They offer many different styles. The ears and paws make it easy for little fingers to grip. My youngest knows a great blankie when he sees one, and he was quite taken with Kaloo's playful creations! Just in case you are wondering about the name, Doudou (blankie, security blanket) is French and used to describe a transitional object or substitute when mom is not around. But you will not find me joking about the name. Children take their Doudous very seriously. There is even a dedicated lost and found page!

Kaloo offers more than sleepsacks and toys. You will find a wonderful variety of products on their site! Visit and check out the selection! I'm keeping an eye on their adorable playmats for my next child, and I will probably pick up a few towel sets too! If you want something really unique, try their adorable crib mobiles! They have a wooden stand that will fit most cribs and they play Bridge over Trouble Water! Give a Kaloo and receive a smile, and maybe a few hugs and kisses too!

Those sleep bags are so adorable! They look so soft. I wish I had one in my size.
