Frequently Asked Questions

We've gone over all the different types of baby sleeping bags and things you should know before buying, but do you still have some questions or still a little confused? Don't worry, you're not alone! We’ve gathered some of the questions we get asked the most and answered them all for you. Take a look at our frequently asked questions to help...

How should the baby sleeping bag fit on my baby?

The arm holes should be snug enough, so your baby cannot get their hands inside the bag. Sleeping bags for smaller babies have additional poppers to help the bag fit. The neck hole should not be so big that your baby’s head could slip down inside the bag but should be a comfortable size. By picking one designed for your little ones age will help give you peace of mind.

How many do I need?

We recommend having 1 to wear and 1 to wash. If you are opting for seasonal sleeping bags, you will need a couple with a higher tog rating for the winter, and a lower tog for the summer.

What is a TOG rating?

TOG stands for Thermal Overall Grade. It is a unit of measurement used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product, commonly used in the textile industry (quilts, duvets, and comforters). It indicates the degree of warmth you should expect from your sleeping bag. The higher the TOG, the warmer the garment.

What's the best sleeping bag for toddlers?

When you start to have a little mover on your hands there are some great sleeping bags with feet. These sleeping bags can convert from a sleeping bag to a suit with legs using zippers. They give you a great 2-in-1 wearable blanket for little ones on the move. From sleep to play time, or perfect for getting them ready for bed but they can still move around before it's time for sleep.

What should my little one wear underneath their sleeping bag?

This one completely depends on the temperature or season. Although you can buy different TOG's, you will still need to adjust the clothing your baby wears underneath – in very hot weather, they might just wear a nappy or short-sleeved bodysuit, whilst in colder weather, they might need a bodysuit and sleepsuit.

When can I start using a sleeping bag?

You can use a baby sleeping bag from birth. Sleeping bags often have a lower weight limit, usually around 8-9lbs (4kgs) so depending on your baby’s size they can be used from birth.
