Is your infant or toddler too mobile for a sleep sack but not old enough for a regular blanket? The Mini Mumu is a footless cotton wearable blanket that provides a great deal of mobility and comfort for your little one. Recommended for infants over the age of six months who have transitioned out of a swaddle and who can roll over, the wearable blanket is ideal for babies and toddlers on the go, allowing for little ones to move around freely while staying warm. I recently received a medium Rock Star Mini Mumu in exchange for my honest opinion.
About Mini Mumu
When Margaret at Mini Mumu realized that most wearable blankets were not very suitable for her daughter because of the lack of an opening at the bottom, she decided to follow her dream and design her own blankets, hoping to make one that matched her vision. Without an opening at the bottom, most wearable blankets are too restrictive and uncomfortable. After a year of much sleep deprivation, Margaret made her dream came true: Mini Mumu was born! Mini Mumu believes that a wearable blanket needs to be safe, comfortable, and stylish at the same time. When babies sleep better, parents sleep better.
The Mini Mumu currently comes in two sizes. Small fits babies between six and eighteen months who weigh between 15 and 27 pounds and measure between 24 and 29 inches. Medium fits toddlers between eighteen months and three years who weigh between 27 and 36 pounds and measure between 29 and 39 inches. Depending on the height of your child, the length of the wearable blanket may be slightly above the feet and ankles. I chose the medium for my son. He is sixteen months old and measures about 27 inches tall. The Mini Mumu falls to mid-calf on him. I also tried the medium on my daughter who is about 40 inches tall, and the wearable blanket fell to her knees.
Mini Mumu currently offers the wearable blanket in six prints: Rock Star, Mini Starlet, Elephant Jam, Cherry Blossom, Nautical Anchor, and Alphabet Mix. I chose and received Rock Star, which is blue with white and gray stars, gray trim, white snaps, and white interior. Although the number of prints currently available are limited, you can still find a Mini Mumu that you will love in a boy, girl, or gender-neutral print.
The Mini Mumu wearable blanket currently retails for $32. Comparable wearable blankets sell for a comparable price. I therefore consider the Mini Mumu reasonably priced. I have purchased sleep sacks for both my kids for around the same amount, so I would definitely pay $32 for a Mini Mumu wearable blanket.
The Mini Mumu consists of a 100% cotton exterior and a polyester filling to keep babies and toddlers warm throughout the night and on the go. The open bottom on the comfortable, soft, and quilted wearable blanket provides freedom for little ones to kick and move around and makes diaper changes easier. Snaps mean no zippers to scratch or pinch delicate baby skin. The snaps on the side help babies and toddlers feel cozy and secure while the snaps on the right shoulder allow parents to easily dress and undress their little ones.
To keep my son warm at night, I put him in some sort of wearable blanket. The Mini Mumu is my new first choice of all his wearable blankets. At sixteen months old, he is quite mobile. He crawls around anytime I set him down, and he has recently started walking without assistance. His Mini Mumu keeps him warm all night and allows him to safely climb down from the mattress onto the floor in the morning without getting tangled in a blanket or footed sleep sack.
Safety is extremely important to me, especially in regards to my children. I have always chosen swaddles, sleep sacks, and wearable blankets for my babies as a safe alternative to loose blankets. Now that my son is more mobile, I additionally worry about his becoming tangled in the closed bottom of a sleep sack and falling as he climbs down from the mattress. The footless design of the Mini Mumu has alleviated my concerns. My son can remain as mobile as he wants while inside this wearable blanket. In fact, he was so mobile that I had trouble taking pictures of him in the Mini Mumu. He kept crawling away from me at an incredible speed!
The snaps on the Mini Mumu are a nice feature that I have not found in other wearable blankets. I can quickly and easily put my son in the Mini Mumu at bedtime without wrestling with a zipper. The snaps are easy to use but also remain snapped all night despite the rolling around that my son does throughout the night. Each morning I have found all the snaps still securely snapped in place.
The Mini Mumu allows for so much mobility that my on-the-go toddler can wear his throughout the day to keep him warm. Just yesterday, the apartment was ridiculously cold. To keep my son snuggly and warm without slowing him down, I put him in his Mini Mumu. He played the entire afternoon cozily tucked inside the quilted wearable blanket. The Mini Mumu is great for day and night!
Transcription: Hi! I’m Heather from The Parenting Patch. I received a Mini Mumu in exchange for my honest opinion. The Mini Mumu is a footless cotton wearable blanket that provides a great deal of mobility and comfort for your little one. Recommended for infants over the age of six months who have transitioned out of a swaddle and who can roll over, the wearable blanket is ideal for babies and toddlers on the go, allowing for little ones to move around freely while staying warm. To use the Mini Mumu, unsnap the side and shoulder snaps, lay your infant or toddler in the wearable blanket, and redo the snaps. Your child can continue being active and playful while staying warm. I especially like that my son can crawl off the mattress in the morning without getting tangled in a blanket or sleep sack. For more information about the Mini Mumu wearable blanket, be sure to check out my full review on The Parenting Patch.
If your child has outgrown an infant swaddler and needs the freedom of movement offered by a footless wearable blanket, then definitely check out the Mini Mumu. My sixteen-month-old son can safely crawl and walk while wearing his. I love knowing that he can safely get down from the mattress in the bedroom by himself without getting tangled in a blanket or sleep sack. The quilted materials keeps him cozy and warm all night, and the snaps remain firmly secure. If you are shopping for a wearable blanket for your baby or toddler, I highly recommend the Mini Mumu.
