Baby sleeping bag buying guide

Let’s face it, although the sound of a baby’s laugh is indeed precious, to virtually all parents of newborns, the only thing better will be the sound of their child’s gentle snoring when they are fast asleep. Yes, sleep is something that we can all benefit from, yet for babies, a poor night’s sleep will likely result in a full day of crying so getting your child to sleep is absolutely essential. Often, one of the main reasons why babies cry through the night is not because they are restless, but rather because they are uncomfortable. To help ensure your baby is as comfortable as they can possibly be, many experts recommend a baby sleeping bag. Baby sleeping bags are extremely popular, they are affordable, they are very easy to use, and they are really effective at keeping your baby warm, safe, and comfortable in the process. Buying one however, is not as straightforward as you may have initially thought, due to the fact that there are so many out there. To help make your purchase easier, here is a basic baby sleeping bag buying guide.

What are baby sleeping bags? – Baby sleeping bags are basically soft and wearable vests for toddlers and babies that have the ability to fold down and extend outwards into a bag at the bottom, which your baby will then sleep in. These bags can be zipped closed/open as they have a zip running from the top to the bottom of the bag. This zip is often located down the middle of the bag, though some have them located at the side. There are even ones out there that can be fastened open and closed with special poppers. The great thing about these bags is that they can be used when babies are a few weeks old, up until they reach toddler age. They are of course available in different thicknesses and in different materials, so you can find the right bag for the right season.

Things to consider when buying a baby sleeping bag – When purchasing a baby sleeping bag, there are a number of things you need to consider. These include the following:

Which tog you require – A tog is basically a term used to describe the thickness of blankets/sleeping bags, and before you purchase a sleeping bag for your baby you will need to know which tog you require. For those who live in warm climes or for during the summer a 0.5 tog is ideal. For warm days a 1 tog sleeping bag will be ideal, and for all year round other than warm days, a 2.5 tog bag will be ideal. During extreme cold snaps during the winter, you may wish to go with a thicker tog.

In buggy or in car use? – If you wish to use the sleeping bag in a buggy, or in the car, you must make sure that the bag has the necessary loops or holes for safety harnesses to keep your baby safe. You can easily find out whether your baby sleeping bag can indeed be used in cars or buggies, so just bear that in mind before making a purchase.

Safety – You also need to know how to safely use baby sleeping bags to ensure your baby is nice and safe. For example, you should never use them with sheets or duvets as your baby can get too hot. You should not use sleeping bags with hoods as they could pose a suffocation risk. You should also look for a snug, yet comfortable fit so that your baby does not slide out.
