Grobag Baby Sleeping Bags
As parents of a 2 year old we’re often the source of advice for friends who are expecting a baby or who’ve just become new parents. One question I get asked is, "What product would you recommend for our new baby?" And my answer is always Grobag Baby Sleeping Bags.
Grobags are little sleeping bags that allow babies to move their arms which keeping their bodies and legs snug and come recommended by the British foundation for prevention of SIDS- sudden infant death syndrome. They come in sizes from 0-6 months (7lbs-or 3.5kg) up to 3 years, with loads of funky designs and colours. During those first few months grobags kept our son at a consistent temperature - so no need to wake him up in the night to check he is wasn’t too hot or too cold (yes, new parents really do this)! It also meant that he couldn’t kick off his blankets in the night, solving many of the problems usually associated with sleeping away from home, not to mention the trauma of moving from a bassinet or moses basket to a bigger cot. When used as part of a night time routine they can help your baby establish the difference between day and night, helping with any “sleeping through the night” problems you may have. And one more plus - want to keep using a Grobag Baby Sleeping Bag even as your baby gets a little older? No problem! They can’t climb out of the cot in one, so no need to move them to a bed until you really need to!
