Violet’s Peapod was started by a San Francisco mom-to-be who was on a mission for breathable baby sleep sacks for her unborn baby, Violet. Violet’s Peapod are unique sleep sacks that made of 100% natural, renewable fibers and produced in the U.S. The outer shell is make of 100% cotton. The filling is made of 100% superwash wool that doesn’t shrink when it is laundered, and it is also naturally flame resistant.
Baby sleep sacks maybe a new idea to some, but they have become more popular, especially as moms want to replace loose crib bedding for safety reasons and still keep their babies cozy at night. They are essentially wearable blankets or infant sleeping bags, worn over pajamas.
Our experience was that these sleep sacks had good, comfortable size arm holes, not too big as other sleep sacks we have tried and are much longer in length (due to the peapod shape) which will keep your baby from outgrowing it too soon. The natural material is noticeably more cozy than typical synthetic fibers due to the breathablily of the fiber. One of our Smarty Readers who just had her third child tried out the 0-6 month International Smiles baby sleep sack. Her children tend to be on the warmer side, so she has shied away from sleep sacks in the past because the fleece-like material has been too hot. With Violet’s Peapod, she felt that even her children could use this year round and be comfortable.
These great baby sleep sacks have also taken on Hollywood by participating in celebrity gifting for such stars as Jennifer Garner, Gwen Stephani, Molly Ringwald and Sarah Jessica Parker. The sacks come in eight different patterns for girls, boys and gender nuetral. They cost $53.95 and come in sizes from 0 – 6 to 18 – 24 months. The owner of Violet’s Peapod is extending a special offer to all Charlotte Smarty Pants readers. Receive 20% off orders through November 30th.
