I'm thinking about making some baby sleep sacks, and I was wondering if anyone with experience making or using them had any tips to offer.

What type of fabric works best?

Are sleeves or sleeveless styles better?

Do you need multiple sizes?  If so which ones are most useful?

Are there patterns that you have tried and liked (or hated)?

Are there and styles that you have liked better than others?

Thanks.

Okay, this is not from experience with my own baby, my first is due in March, but based on my child care experience and starting to browse baby things for my own.

I've never seen sleep sacks that aren't sleeveless.

Most of the ones I've seen have been cotton(knit) or fleece. I'm guessing flannel would work too. It depends on how cold it is where you live, really.

There are multiple sizes, but I can't comment on which are most useful.

I know I've seen patterns for these! goes to look...
