LAST CHANCE TO ENTER: Win a Merino Kids Baby or Toddler Sleep Bag!

How do you keep your baby warm when it’s cold outside? How about putting him to bed in a Merino Kids Baby Sleep Bag?

    I like to pile up on the couch, with all 5 kids, under blankets and watch one of our favorite movies!

    Where we live, it often gets cold at the end of October and winter stays around until sometime in March. Not every day is bitter cold, there are often weekends full of bright, warmer weather that leave us with rosy cheeks and thoughts of cups of homemade hot chocolate. So we often bundle up – usually in lots and lots of boiled wool and wool long johns, and big warm boots… and take treks through parks (we saw a muskrat close up last week when it warmed up a little!), skate on the longest outdoor skating rink in the world, the Rideau Canal, tobagan down icy hills and build lots and lots of snow-ladies when the white stuff is sticky enough. Thanks for this chance! With a new baby coming in a few weeks, this would come in wonderfully handy (p.s. I have a U.S. shipping address).

  54. jfreiheit says:

    We are Wisconsinites so when it is cold outside, we make the best of it and get out there and have fun! Everything from snow angels to sledding and building tunnels for our dogs!!! Even taking a walk to enjoy nature. But then we like to come in to eat popcorn and play board games. Having this sleep sak would not only keep our son warm in our cold 100+ year old house but would keep him cool in the summer with the fabulous Merino wool. And for the 4 hour drives to grandma’s, this would regulate his temp in the carseat and wick moisture away from his body. Thank you for considering us~!

  55. jenopursley says:

    Here in Upstate New York, we get plenty of cold, snowy weather. Our favorite thing to do is bundle up our littlest one in the amauti (inuit babywearing parka!), and head out with the pups to explore the city or the many mountains around us. Afterwards, we love to cozy up to the wood stove with hot chocolate and popcorn and recount our favorite moments of the day.
    ps. we are a wool lovin’ family and would absolutely adore this sleep sack for our newest babe expected in October! Thanks for considering 🙂
