the birth of woolino
The birth of a child changes your life. Being an architect and urban designer I never envisioned I would be designing baby sleeping bags. However, when my first child was born, the health and safety of my baby became the most important thing for me. One of the new, but essential problems I was faced with, was how to help my baby sleep safely and comfortably through the night. My son would never stay covered at night; he would easily kick off any covers and wake up cold. Moreover, I was terrified to learn that blankets are actually a risk factor for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
After doing my research on the risks of SIDS, I found that the only safe bedding option for a baby was the old-world invention: a natural baby sleep sack. A baby sleep bag will eliminate the need of blankets that can easily cover baby’s face during sleep and cause suffocation.
Being raised in Europe, where baby sleeping bags are a norm, I was surprised that they were rarely known and used in the USA. Most of those few on the market were made of non-breathable synthetics, either micro-fleece or polyester, that can overheat the baby (a risk factor for SIDS), give him a heat rash, and make him sweaty and uncomfortable.
After studying a lot of different baby sleep sacks and different fabrics, I began creating different designs combining style, ease of use, safety, and comfort. I studied how various fabrics work and how they affect the delicate baby skin. Improving and incorporating different aspects from various sleep sacks that were already on the market, and using Australian merino as an ideal natural fiber, we created the Woolino 4 Season Baby Sleeping Bag!
Woolino Infant Sleeping Bag is of a high quality, practical, stylish, made of 100% natural fabrics: super-fine, breathable 100% Australian merino on the inside, and pure cotton on the outside. The Merino wool we use for our products is not the traditional itchy wool you may know. Merino is the finest wool on the planet; it is luxuriously soft, lightweight, allergy-safe and easy to care for. Click here to read more about the benefits of merino.
Woolino 4 season baby sleep bag is designed to keep your baby warm without overheating, and to be used in all seasons. They are cleverly designed for babies 3-24 months (and older), so you won’t need to buy numerous sizes.
Our merino sleep bag became essential for our family’s good night sleep. I decided I wanted to share this great sleep bag with everyone because I believe you will love it as much as we do. I trust that with Woolino every baby, and their parents, will enjoy longer, safer, and more restful sleep.
