8 Benefits of a baby or toddler sleeping bag


Here are 8 reasons why a sleeping bag might be right for your baby or toddler.
 
1. Baby sleeping bags are easy to use

When babies are young, sleeping bags are an easy option to use. Simply place your baby within the sleeping bag, secure them correctly and place them in their cot, with just a fitted sheet underneath.

Although your baby's arms remain outside of the sleeping bag, their core body temperature will be maintained at the optimum level to ensure a restful night’s sleep.
 
2. Sleeping bags are available in different sizes & weights

Choose the perfect size sleeping bag to fit your baby or toddler, and the best weight suited for the time of year and climate where you live.

The sleeping bag will keep your child warm with less weight than sheets and blankets to restrict their movement and comfort.

3. No additional covers are required when you use a sleeping bag

Sleeping bags eliminate the problem of your baby or toddler kicking off their covers and becoming cold during the night.

They also enhance your baby or toddler's safety, as bedding has the potential to wrap around their airway.

Your baby or toddler is safely held within their sleeping bag, so there is also no risk of getting their foot stuck between the bars of the cot.
 
4. Baby & toddler sleeping bags promote peaceful sleep

Your baby or toddler will quickly associate the sleeping bag with an enjoyable experience and a restful night's sleep, and this can help them to settle quickly.

As soon as they are placed within their sleeping bag they will feel secure and comfortable, and this will help them to settle and to achieve sleep rapidly, even when they're in a strange place.
 
5. Easy to transport your baby or toddler in a sleeping bag

Use the sleeping bag in your baby or toddler's car seat or buggy so that you can pass them straight from there to their cot or bed without disturbing their rest.
 
6. Merino wool sleeping bags are a natural choice

When looking for a sleeping bag, you can't go past a merino wool option.

Merino wool sleeping bags have many benefits. They are super soft and will not cause skin irritation, even in babies with eczema or for those with skin conditions.

Merino wool also breaths, so perspiration passes out and is absorbed into the air keeping your baby or toddler dry and comfortable.

The unique temperature regulating capacity of merino sleepwear keeps them at the perfect temperature, cool when the weather is hot, and warm when it's chilly.
 
7. Sleeping bags encourage faster growth

Studies have shown that babies and toddlers sleepwear made from merino wool helps them to settle for sleep quicker, they sleep for longer periods, they cry less frequently, they feed better and hence they put on weight faster.

This can be particularly important for underweight or premature babies.
 
8. Sleeping bags make for happy families!

If your baby or toddler sleeps well, you will too, and this means that the whole family will be happier and healthier!

Choosing the right sleepwear and bedding for your child is one of the best investments you can make for your whole family.
