We got a chance to try the Flying Squirrel pajamas from Sleeping Baby and we are hooked! These are the best toddler pajamas for so many reasons. We received the pajamas for free but this is a completely honest review.

I first heard about the Sleeping Baby company on an episode of Shark Tank. They are most known for their Zipadee-Zip which is a star-shaped pajama for ages 3 months to size 3T. It encompasses the feet and hands but is not a swaddle. It allows the baby to move around but still be able to have the comfort of being encapsulated.
You never have to worry about your baby “breaking free” from a swaddle and waking themselves up. You don’t have to worry about your baby rolling over while being swaddled. It can often be a hard transition going from swaddling to regular pajamas because of the startle reflex waking them up.
Diaper changes are easy with the Zipadee-Zip or Flying squirrel because it is very loose. You just unzip, change and zip back up. You can also buckle your baby in the car seat wearing either of these because they are not restricting.
Since my youngest son is starting to wear size 3T we decided to start with the Flying Squirrel Pajamas. These allow for hands and feet to be out but there is an option to enclose as well. I knew he would love the flexibility these toddler pajamas allowed. He was so excited to see the rocketships on his new pajamas.
When I first received these toddler pajamas I was worried that I got the wrong size. They seemed really big. Once I put them on, I realized they are supposed to be a bit baggy. It allows the child to move freely but still has some resistance. This resistance helps the child to feel secure while sleeping.
My son loves how he can move and stretch in these toddler pajamas. We don’t have to worry about a shirt riding up while he is sleeping. It is the right amount of warmth to keep body heat in. They are also cool enough for warm summer nights. For extra warmth, there are fleece options as well.
