Baby Sleeping Bags Belong on Your Baby

A Baby Sleeping Bag is the Perfect Gift

My friend Jo and I just returned from our major shopping spree to the city and after hunting high and low and after visiting quite a few baby item stores she and I finally found the perfect gifts for our friend Rosie’s daughters baby shower.

I’m really excited about gifting these 2 baby sleeping bags (one to wear while the other is in the wash). These baby sleeping bags originated in the United Kingdom and are made by ‘Grobag® UK’. The ‘Grobag® Baby Sleeping Bag’ is a wearable blanket. There might be some cheaper baby sleeping bags on the market but this is the only type of baby sleep bag that the Foundation for the Study of Infant Death (FSID) officially recommends for use. Since 2000 Rob and Ouvrielle Holmes have been promoting these safer sleeping bags for babies. The baby is kept at a comfortable temperature all night long.

Aspirations for Your Child

Once your baby gets old enough, put him or her in a child lab coat for Halloween or to encourage their interest in science or medicine. It will make them feel grown up and help them look at the world with a different perspective.

Grobag Baby Sleeping Bag

The Grobag® Baby Sleep Bags have been carefully tested for safety and comfort. They are fabricated out of soft 100% cottons in a variety of colors and patterns. The neutral or multicolored baby sleeping bags are unisex while others feature creepy crawlers, tractors, airplanes or floral prints.

The variety of the soft fabric used for the sleeping bags for baby are an organic woven cotton, soft cotton jersey, and soft fleece. The baby sleep bags are also grouped into three different weights or tog ratings. 0.5 and 1.0 tog Grobag® Baby Sleep Bags have no filling and the 2.5 tog baby sleeping bags have a soft polyester filling which is lightweight and can be washed at 40°C and tumble dried. (tog is a warmth rating used in Europe : the higher the tog, the warmer the garment)

• 2.5 tog – made with a standard nursery temperatures of 16-20°C (61-69°F) in mind

• 1.0 tog – should be used during warmer weather and in nurseries of 21-24°C (70-73°F)

• 0.5 tog - For hot weather and very warm nursery environments of 25-27°C (74-80°F)

Continued Comfort After the Baby Sleeping Bag

As your children grow, you can continue to offer them a warm, snuggly sleep with kids down sleeping bags.

The 18-36 month sleeping bags for toddlers feature the zip-click™ invented bags to prevent little fingers from opening the zippers. To ensure the highest quality and safety the company guarantees that the fabric, zippers and zip-pulleys only come from reputable supplier.

According to the labels the sizing for the babies sleeping bags is as follows 0-6 months is 76cm (30”)long and for babies over 7 lbs, the 6-18 months is about 94cm (37.5”) long, the 18-36 months one112cm or (45”) long while the one that should fit the 3-5 year old child is 128cm (51.5”) in length.

I feel really great about this gift as it looks as if the Grobag® Company is really concerned with the safety of their product. They recommend that the Baby Sleep Bag is to be used instead of blankets and sheets. These are also great when used in the car as travel baby sleeping bags.
