Over the summer months Baby J has happily slept under a thin blanket, but now the weather is getting cooler and the nights are turning cold, a blanket isn’t enough. He is far too wriggly for a duvet, so going back to using a baby sleeping bag is the obvious choice. Now that he is walking, most baby sleeping bags would restrict his little feet, however Slumbersac have the perfect solution: a baby sleeping bag with feet!
Traditional bedding like duvets and blankets can leave babies and toddlers feeling too hot or too cold. It can be hard for us as parents to work out how many blankets a child needs and even if we do work it out they just kick and fidget their way out from beneath them. Or is that just my children?! Sleeping bags keep little ones at a constant temperature throughout the night, no matter how wriggly they get, ensuring they are comfortable and snug until morning.
Slumbersac sleeping bags are made from soft cotton jersey and lined with cotton too, with polyester padding inside. The sleeping bags with feet come in four sizes from 12 months through to 4 years, and are available in summer weight 1.0 tog, standard weight 2.5 tog and winter weight 3.5 tog. Currently there are 3 designs available: owls, teddies and stars. J has the gorgeous star design in the standard weight, as our house rarely falls below 18 degrees.
The clever sleeping bags with feet* are perfect for little ones like Baby J who are walking or learning to walk. When I’m getting J ready for bed he can potter about and once he is asleep his feet can be slipped inside the sleeping bag to keep them warm. It is really easy to put J in this sleeping bag as it just has one long zip up the middle and a popper at the top, and it fits him perfectly. The elasticated cuffs stop his feet from sliding out during sleep, but I thought his toes looked so adorable I just had to photograph them still out!
J has been sleeping beautifully in his Slumbersac sleeping bag. The first time he slept in it was for an afternoon nap, which is usually an hour at the most. He slept for over two hours! It is brilliant when he wakes for a night feed as he is still snug while he nurses, then I can simply put him back down without disturbing him by having to rearrange blankets or duvets. The sleeping bag washes really well; we were recently hit with a tummy bug so it has been washed multiple times yet still looks as good as new with no bobbles or fading at all!
Slumbersac sleeping bags with feet start at just £20.99. Slumbersac also have a great range of regular baby sleeping bags as well as travel bags and other accessories.
