So what are some of the benefits of baby or toddler sleeping bags?

Specially designed baby sleeping bags feature a lot of advantages over the sheets and blankets that are normally used for cot bedding.

Baby and toddler sleeping bags have been used in Europe for many years and recent studies have shown that their use has lots of positive benefits.

Here are 8 reasons to help you to make the right decision as to what kind of sleepwear is best for your baby or toddler.

 

8 Reasons to choose a baby sleeping bag

 
1. Baby sleeping bags are easy to use

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

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

Choose the perfect size of baby sleeping bag or toddler sleeping bag for your child and the weight best suited for the climate where you live.

They keep your child warm with less weight to restrict their free movements and comfort.

3. No sheets or blankets are used with your child sleeping bag

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. 

It also enhances your baby’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. Promotes peaceful sleep

Your baby will quickly associate the sleeping bag with an enjoyable experience in 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 in a strange place.
 
5. Transporting

Use the sleeping bag in your car seat or buggy so that you can pass your child straight from here to their cot or bed without disturbing their rest.
 
6. Better materials

Sleeping bags can be made from different materials and the Merino Kids Go Go Bag™ has the added advantage of being made with an organic cotton outer cover and a Merino wool inner lining.

Merino wool is super soft so it will not cause skin irritation even in babies with eczema or skin conditions.

It also breaths so perspiration passes out and is absorbed into the air keeping your child dry and comfortable.

The unique temperature regulating capacity of Merino sleepwear keeps your child at the perfect temperature, cool when the weather is hot, and warm when it's chilly.
 
7. Faster growth

Studies have shown that babies and toddlers sleepwear made from Merino wool helps the child 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. Happier families!

If your child 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 baby, toddler and entire family.
