    Those warm summer nights can make it difficult to sleep deeply and wake refreshed and relaxed in the morning – even for your baby!  The inventor of the Sleephugs had so many requests to make a super cool swaddle she set her mind to doing just that!

    Those warm summer nights can make it difficult to sleep deeply and wake refreshed and relaxed in the morning - even for your baby!

    The Sleepy Hugs Cool sleep sack gives you all the features you know and love from our original Sleepy Hugs sleep sack: full-body length zip with top zipper cover and a long zip along the bottom for simple middle-of-the-night nappy changes; plus its hip-friendly wide sake design that can easily accommodate a hip dysplasia brace.

    To help your baby sleep more comfortably on warm nights, the Sleepy Hugs Cool features a soft, light mesh fabric to encourage air circulation around your baby, keeping their body temperature cool and constant.

    Available in two gorgeous sorbet colours  from 3 months up to 12 months+, Sleepy Hugs Cool is your secret weapon to sleeping well all summer long.

    Size Guide

    The SLEEPY HUGS is designed to be a looser fit than most other swaddle suits and is most effective in helping your baby adjust to free arms with the correct size. The SLEEPY HUGS is all about the arm span so it’s important to choose the correct size. If too big, your baby will not get the security and snug fit that they still need.

    NOTE: the below measurements does not include baby's head.

    • Small (3-6 months) - suitable for babies aged from 3 - 6 months, weighing 6 - 8 kg. The length of the sleep suit is approx. 65cm.

    • Medium (6-12 months) - suitable for babies aged from 6 - 12 months, weighing 8 - 10 kg. The length of the sleep suit is approx. 75cm.

    Summer - baby can simply wear a singlet and nappy/diaper under the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit to ensure they are not too hot . With soaring temperatures, it is best to keep baby's room temperature between 18-20C. Avoid dressing baby in synthetic or un-natural materials including bedding as this will cause them to sweat and overheat.


    We use only high grade premium Cotton fabrics in all our products. Cotton is a natural material and is 100% breathable so babies won't sweat or overheat and is suitable for eczema.

    Sleepy Hugs 'Cool' is made from cotton jersey with soft mesh fabric inserts that allow for a continuous flow of air around your baby, keeping them cool and comfortable all night long.

    How do I know if the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit is right for my baby?

    The best guide to knowing if the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit is the next step for your baby - is none other than your baby. Apart from the obvious signs that your baby is no longer sleeping as well as they used to, here are some signs to watch for:

    Tummy roller - when your baby starts rolling onto their tummy and they are still fully swaddled. This can pose a safety hazard. The SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit is the perfect solution for tummy rollers as the free arm movement allows baby to use their arms naturally to allow themselves to roll-back.

    Escape artist - when your baby starts breaking out of their swaddle and/or the swaddle is no longer able to give them the security and comfort they need.
    Although many babies love the feeling of being swaddled, many of them hate having their arms restricted tightly against their bodies. The SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit gives them that feeling of enclosure without the restriction of a swaddle wrap.

    Cat-napper - when your baby starts waking more frequently and is unable to resettle back to sleep, and/or they are waking upset. It is well known that babies go through periods of sleep regression and may experience periods of severe startle reflex, which is what causes them to wake up feeling upset (due to feeling a loss of security).  The SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit gives them the feeling of security and comfort and can help them self settle back to sleep.

    How/why does the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit work?

    In essence, the SLEEPY HUGS sleep suit has been designed to allow your baby to move their arms freely while still providing an enclosed, secure feeling that they enjoy. It is designed as a totally enclosed sleep suit but with a slight resistance in the arms so that they can move their arms around freely yet gives them that 'edge' feeling. So, when they experience a startle reflex, they immediately feel secure.
