Sleepy springtime: Cosmotot's bedtime finds for Chicago babies and toddler

There’s nothing like watching little ones nod off in the comfort of a cozy room. With that in mind, Cosmotot collected the latest sleep-themed finds to inspire sweet dreams.
 
 

Bedtime on Safari Gift Set

When day turns to night, being in the dark can be scary. Cloud B's Bedtime on Safari Gift Set shows sleepyheads that relaxing lights and familiar sounds can be comforting, not creepy. The set includes a fully illustrated book and two plush finger puppets (Twilight Turtle and Gentle Giraffe) to use with the gift box, which transforms into a puppet theater. $19.95; Adler Planetarium Infinity Shop, 1300 S. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago.

 
 

Ez Sox

Little piggies can get cold even under the covers. Keep 'em toasty with socks kids can put on themselves. Ez Sox have reinforced side loops to give tiny fingers a good grip, and cute friendly-faced animals act as a guide to show which way goes up. Non-skid bottoms make them safe on slippery surfaces (think middle of the night potty breaks) and each pair is made seamless for sensitive feet. $4.99 and up. Piggy Toes, 2205 N. Halsted St., Chicago.

 
 

A Light in the Night

No more monsters with A Light in the Night. Created by a mom to comfort her oldest son when he moved to his "big boy" bed, each gift set includes a board book and plush light-up creature. $34.95; Yellow Bird, 1515 Sheridan Road, Wilmette.

 
 

Catching 40 winks can be hard when you're an overstimulated newborn. Being wrapped burrito-style in whisper-soft Australian swaddling blankets makes it easy. Founded by two ex-pat Aussie moms, Aden + Anais offers generously sized swaddling blankets that allow for plenty of gentle airflow. The lightweight weave lulls little ones to sleep while wicking away moisture and regulating body temperature, keeping them warm without overheating. $22 and up. Comfy Bummy, 231 S. Washington St., Naperville.

 
 

Kicky Pants

Kicky Pants' all-natural, pesticide- and chemical-free, eco-friendly Bamboo Basics line gets the crankiest kids completely centered with sweet Footies with Paws pajamas. Each pair features flip-paws to prevent scratching, while the insides of the feet are lined with soft fleece. All are created from sustainable bamboo fibers that have a natural wicking ability to keep baby warm, dry and asleep all night long. $30; Maya Papaya & Tony Macarony, 1917 Central, Evanston.
