All our merino sleepwear is ethnically designed and made locally in New Zealand
What is LIGHTWEIGHT merino:
Our stunning lightweight merino collection has all the warmth benefits that newborn babies need to regulate temperature, it's ultra-soft and ultra-lightweight, so you get natural merino that is lite enough to layer with whatever you want; for example: during extra warm nights, you might like to wear just a pure merino singlet and nappy underneath your fitted wrap, then as the temperature cools down, start adding a nightgown, sleepsuit and singlet.
If you think your baby might be sensitive to wool - then buy this ultra soft, lightweight merino as it is only 17 micro merino (which means it's best for sensitive skin, especially during the warmest months) Learn more about the differences in our merino weights.
We really don't mean to brag, but we honestly believe our nightgowns will be your favorite newborn essential, and they are so well made that you will be passing them down from baby to baby, family to family...
Made from soft warm merino, they are ideal for your brand new baby before you begin to think about sleeping bags or blankets and are a great item to pack in your hospital overnight bag. Plus they are designed to fit from newborn to approx 6mths, so you get great value for money. We suggest you wear them under our merino fitted wraps.
When you buy this nightgown you get the option of adding a matching merino knotted beanie for only $5.00
So adorable and perfect to finish off any outfit, and if you are in need of a baby shower gift these are a perfect choice. The knotted hat are perfect for daytime strolling and all out and about activities - just make sure you don't sleep your baby overnight in a hat (as they may overheat).
Merino should be used for all newborn babies 365 days of the year for night-time sleeping. In fact on those warmer nights, it works BETTER than cotton to help regulate temperature and keep your newborn baby cool. Newborn babies can not regulate temperature for around 12 weeks of life - this means they might be cold even when it's hot in the house. So it is really important to use merino against the skin so the merino garment can do the job for them.
Merino will draw the moisture away from your newborn delicate skin when warm and then as the temperature drops (between 3-5am) the merino will push the warmth back into the skin - so they don't wake up because they are cold. If merino hadn't been invented by nature, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was invented by magic.
