Sometimes living life in a big family does feel like a three-ring circus, but that's my life, and, all-in-all, I LOVE IT!

Magic Sleep Suit

Eóghan used to fall asleep anywhere:

And he used to sleep through the night in a little cradle/bassinet that sat alongside his Mommy's bed.

But then he started to become very fussy when he got tired and he'd fight sleep all the time.  And because he was growing leaps and bounds, it was also about time to transfer him from tiny cradle to big crib at night, and he was having none of that either!  He stopped sleeping through the night.

But Ray came to the rescue when he found this Magic Sleep Suit:

It really is a magic sleep suit!  It works like a charm!  When Eóghan gets fussy during the day, I just say to him, "Do you want to put on your 'night-night' suit?"  And immediately he calms down.  I slip him into the suit, he smiles, he closes his eyes, and it's off to dreamland!
It's the same thing at bedtime, either Ray or I put him in the suit and he goes right to sleep.  Katie said he's doing much better in the crib at night now, he will stay for longer periods, and even if he wakes up, she soothes him a little and puts him back into the crib, and off to sleep he goes again.

I don't know what it is about this suit, but whatever it is, it works!  I highly recommend it!

But I don't recommend it for big boys or clowns!


  1. Beautiful pictures! I loe the 'special sleep suit', I thin it works because it feels so snugly and warm - I want one!! :-)
    Love to you

  2. Eileen...after I read your blog and looked at your photos, I had to go onto the 'net and find out about the sleepsuit. I'd never heard of it. What an interesting idea...transitioning from swaddling to the sleepsuit! I'm so glad that it works for Eóghan.
    [And, I must say that Jayden is a delight!!!]

  3. What a fun post! Glad Ray tracked down the sleepsuit!

  4. I've never heard of such a thing! So glad it's working.

  5. Where can I find one in my size?
    Love Di ♥

  6. I wish I had a suit like that when my boys were babies. They weren't always the best sleepers.
    Jayden is such a character. I just love little boys.
