Want to make sure you’re baby is warm and toasty now that the temps are dropping?
It’s in the bag with my winter sleeping bag top tips.
1. Check your Tog Rating. If you’re still not sure what a tog is then you can school up here, but basically the tog let’s you know the warmth of the bag as it relates to the room temperature. And what exactly is the optimum temp??? Between 16 and 20 degrees is about right.
2. Buy a couple of bags in the winter weight. It takes longer to dry them in winter and if you’re usually a few days behind on the washing (like me!) you’ll still have a spare bag in the cupboard.
3. It’s all about layering. Use a singlet, then jarmies – and onesie jarmies are great because they don’t ride up like pyjama tops do. The Gro Company does a fantastic onesie GroSuit with quilted arms for keeping baby nice and snug.
4. It’s absolutely ok for your baby’s hands to feel a bit cool. As long as their middle section is nice and warm they’ll be happy.
5. If the temp suddenly drops and you’re worried they’ll be cold in their bag you can pop a blanket over the top and tuck it in safely (still sleeping your baby at the base of the cot so they’re SIDS safe).
The following bags are lovely plus they’re warm, easy wash and adorable designs.
