Sleeping Warm and Safe with the Gro Company

Baby toddler sleeping bag

With the weather turning cooler, it’s important to ensure our kids are warm, but safe in bed at night.

We co-sleep, you can read more about it here, and we need to make sure that covers are kept out of A’s way whilst he’s in bed to so he doesn’t accidentally wriggle under them.  During the summer this is fine and he can be warm enough in just his sleepsuit.

However, when it’s cold A  still needs some way of keeping cosy, so we use baby sleeping bags to keep him warm, but safe.  He can roll around in his attached cot without anything covering his head.

The Gro Company recently got in touch to ask if A would like to review their 3.5 tog sleeping bag and of course I said yes!  Our current bags only go up to 2.5 tog and it’s hard to layer A’s nightwear to keep him warm, but not too warm.

We were sent this beautiful Fly a Kite Grobag sleeping bag, which A loves.  He is a big fan of birds, particularly owls!

Aside being cute to look at, it’s beautifully soft and cosy, easy to put on (zip side and popper shoulders) and will last from 18 months until 3 years old.

Now my littlest monkey can sleep safely and be warm all throughout the winter.

Do you use sleeping bags with your children?

    We adore the gro bags. It was a big effort to persuade Libby to go into a big bed with a duvet because she missed her sleeping bags! Lia still uses them and I think they’re a lot safer than covers for little ones. I like gro ones because they are more difficult for our little houdini to climb out of!x

      They are definitely good quality as we’ve had some that just don’t feel as nice or are harder to zip up etc. Hope the pregnancy is going well? 🙂 x

      It’s a good size, for 18-36 months, so plenty of growing room and A is 20 months now. He looks so cosy in it. 🙂 x

    We intended to use them – I think they’re a great idea – but Matilda’s having none of it. It’s hard enough to get her to accept a blanket on cold nights. :-/

      Oh no! Some children don’t like being confined I guess! I’m sure she’ll accept something when it gets chillier, or even a cosier all-in-one fleece sleepsuit with vest underneath? Xx

      Thank you! I love them too! 🙂 x

    Yes! Gro bags. So much easier than the swaddling, etc. and part of our learning experience of getting our eldest to sleep in his cot. Is there anyone they don’t suit? If you pardon the pun.
