Badaboum Badabing

Disclosure: I have received the Badaboum sleep sack to facilitate my review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

At the Birth and Baby Fair, I met Vanessa, a California mom from France who started Badaboum. When Vanessa’s son was a newborn, she was on the prowl for a sleep sack for her newborn just like the French have. Vanessa could not find what she was looking for in California so using her fashion and design background she came up with a French-inspired sleep sack that is non-flammable and formaldehyde free.

Vanessa so kindly sent me a Badaboum sleep sack for my daughter. Approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics and used in Europe for years, the Badaboum sleep sacks are “rigorously tested to meet high quality and safety standards.” Made of 100% cotton with a soft, breathable polyester padding, the sleep sack is breathable, keeping your baby comfortable all night long. The design of the sleep sack is different than any I have ever seen. The zipper goes around the entire bottom which  makes diaper changes easier. The button snap shoulders allow the sleep sack to come on and off quickly and easily. I find the bottom zipper a lot more convenient than the middle zip. When my daughter was a newborn and needed diaper changes in the middle of the night, the side zipper would have been even more convenient than unzipping from the middle top – then you are virtually taking the entier sack off and fumbling at night to zip it back up. The Badaboum is so soft and cozy, my sleep sack needy daughter loves hers. On top of how comfortable it is, the Badaboum is super cute. The white sleep sack has 3 colorful clouds and the interior is polka dots of the same colors. Simple design but it almost looks fashionable because it is not so overwhelming baby.

The Badaboum comes in 2 sizes, 0-6 months and 6-24 months. The larger size is big enough for my daughter that I can see her wearing it past the age of 2 – hopefully it will get her through the entire winter.

For $47 you can your baby a Badaboum sleep sack and you will be glad you did. Sleep sacks are safer alternatives to blankets.
