Mommy Guide: Baby Sleeping Bags

Baby sleeping bags are becoming very popular with parents, and are promoted as a way of reducing the risk of SIDS and a lot of other benefits including the following:

Simply place your child within the sleeping bag, secure correctly and place your little one in the cot, with just a fitted sheet underneath.

This eliminates the problem of your little one kicking off their covers and being cold during the night, and also the risk of becoming entangled in the blankets and not resting comfortably.

Sleeping bags help them feel secure and comfortable, and this will help them to settle and to achieve sleep rapidly.

You can bring your child straight from here to their cot or bed without disturbing their rest.

Sleeping bags help keep baby’s temperature at a more constant level while sleeping.

Baby sleeping bags are measured by age, and it is important NOT to place a baby in an over-sized sleeping bag. If the sleeping bag is too big, the baby may be able to wriggle further into the bag and end up trapped inside. An ideal time to start using a baby sleep bag is when your baby weighs more than 8.8 lbs. 

You should have a couple of tog options in your baby's size, as this will ensure you are placing your baby in the correct sleeping bag for the temperature. The togs you need will depend upon your local climate as well as the season. Always check the temperature of the room your baby sleeps in, as this will help you to select the correct tog for the room. Always refer to the following guide:

24 degrees celsius or more – 0.5 tog
21 – 23 degrees Celsius – 1 tog
18 – 20 degrees Celsius – 2.5 tog
16 – 17 degrees Celsius – 2.5 tog plus one blanket

BabyComfort's sleeping bag for 6-18 months has a tog of 2.5 to be used at a temp of 17 degrees Celsius.

The safety of sleeping bags depends on them being used properly. Make sure to cautious enough to avoid the following: 

 Overheating – you should never use a quilt or duvet to cover a baby in a sleeping bag, because the baby would be put at risk of overheating

 Badly fitting sleeping bags – it is important to ensure you buy the correct size of sleeping bag to prevent your baby from slipping down into the bag during the night

 Hoods – some sleeping bags have hoods attached, these should be avoided because they are thought to increase the risk of SIDS.
