Sleeping bags for newborns and toddlers are the simplest and safest

Sleeping bags for newborns and toddlers are the simplest and safest

There’s a reason why so many modern mothers prefer sleeping bags over traditional blankets: they’re simply more pleasant.

They keep even the classiest babies warm all night, are simple to wash and dry, and avoid the need to make-up the crib!

Sleeping bags are completely safe

The Lullaby Trust, which wants to prevent SIDS, promotes sleeping in a sleeping bag. Babies that are able to flail around may become tangled in blankets and sheets, raising the risk of suffocation. No matter how agitated your infant is, a bag will stay put.

A sleeping cover can also help a toddler avoid the awful sideways-legs-stuck-in-cot situation.

Temperature that remains constant

Babies are prone to overheating or being too cool because they won’t control their own body temperature as well as elders. While sleeping bags are solid and in place, there’s no risk of the blanket either doubled over or slipping off entirely.

A wonderful sleep routine

Sending the kids to bed can be a struggle, but having a nightly routine with defined sleep cues might help. Many parents discover that zipping up the sleeping bag fast becomes a clear and effective sleep trigger, suggesting to the newborn that it’s time to sleep.

It’s a great way to go from swaddling to unfolding

Swaddling can help newborns sleep. As they get mobile it’s safer to stop swaddling them – and the transition can be made a lot easier if you’re moving to a bag, rather than blankets. Your baby feels cosy and contained.
Extremely simple
There’s no need to fuss around with blankets even if you just throw on a bottom sheet. When it’s time to change the nappy, simply unzip around the bottom. The most of bags can be machine washed, and some can even be dried.

What to Consider when Buying a Sleeping Bag for Your Child

There are several great options, and your child may choose one over the other.

Seasonal alternative solutions

Infants, like adults, required varied amounts of insulation, like heavy-weight duvets in the winter and cotton sheets in the summer. This summer-weight sleeping bag is 100 percent cotton French terry fleece and keeps their arms free for hot summer nights between 20-24oC. It also comes in various of colours.

When the weather turns colder, you’ll need a bag that can keep you warm. Our 100% merino sleeping bag has a cotton lining and is ideal for evenings when the temperature is between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius.

Then there’s that extra layer of toastiness for those cool mid-winter nights. On cold evenings down to 14oC, the winter duvet sleeping bag will keep your infant toasty. This will keep your child warm all night long with to high insulation and a TOG rating of 3+.

Fabric choices

While the temperature will influence the type of sleeping bag you use, synthetic fabric should be avoided in general. When they can’t breathe, babies overheat (posing a risk of SIDS), then sweat, which can make them chilly (posing a chance of waking up!). Wool (particularly merino), bamboo, and cotton are natural fibers that are breathable and easy to handle.

Choosing the right size

It’s conceivable that the bag will move or twist if it’s too big for your child. If it’s too small, it’ll feel smothering and constraining.

From birth until the end of the toddler years, there are a range of styles to fit your baby’s size and activity level. Our muslin sleeping bag is come in a choice of sizes, from newborn to extra-large, and some designs, such as our summer sleeping bag, are suitable for kids as young as two years old.

Choose a bag that is suitable for your children

Some babies prefer to be swaddled and tightly wrapped, while others prefer to have their arms free. While it may be a case of trial and error, the incorrect sleeping style will make sleeping habits more difficult than necessary.

Our snuggle bags are suitable for children up to the age of nine months. These provide enough little room for movement and zip down both sides to make nappy changes a joy. They can go from a bassinet to a crib, and from a pushchair to a cot.

The sleepwalker collection combines the best of both worlds, with an easy-to-wear, all-in-one sleeping bag with arms and legs that allows your active toddler to crawl and wander around before bed. For maximum control in the toes, the legs can be folded over little feet.

The muslin sleeping bag is a more real classic with a front zip. This makes it easier to put on and take off, and it may be preferable than a bottom zip for some children.

What is the best choice for you?

While a beautiful design may entice you, consider a bag with easy-to-operate zips and poppers in machine-washable fabrics (that you can do even when you’re half asleep). If you get the proper size and the right bag for the season, you’ll be able to prevent making the bed while also reducing the risk of SIDS and wake-ups.

From baby to toddler, sleeping bags are the safest and most efficient method to sleep.
