Here are some of the best sleeping bags to keep your little one warm during the colder months.
Using a sleeping bag for your child is a great way to keep them warm and secure during sleep in their early years. But as the summer months have passed and the cold seeps in, you need to make sure that you invest in a warmer sleeping bag.
We look at three great sleeping bags for you to consider this winter…
MORI Clever Sleeping Bag
Aside from being beautifully packaged (should you choose the gift wrap option), this sleeping bag feels ultra soft and welcoming for your child. That’s down to the 30 per cent organic cotton and 70 per cent bamboo fabric it’s made from. Also, the fact that it’s a 2.5 tog adds a very cosy quality to it. Your child will feel warm and comfortable without ever overheating in the winter. What’s especially neat about this sleeping bag is the clever seat-belt opening in case you want to take your child out in their pushchair with it on. The double direction zipper and side-shoulder openings make it a simple to use as well. It’s one-size and suitable from newborn up to two years.

Playful Penguin Grobag
This 3.5 tog sleeping bag from The Gro Company is great for keeping your child at a comfortable temperature during the colder months. The soft cotton rich velour is ideal for rooms between 12-15 degrees. One particularly useful feature is the ‘zip-click’ that stops your child potentially undoing the zip themselves. It’s suitable for newborns up to three years, depending on the size you buy, and there are underarm poppers for zero to six months size (on top of the shoulder poppers that feature on all sizes).

Aden + Anais Winter Sleeping Bag
Because of its premium jersey weave, this sleeping bag is beyond soft in feel. The 2.5 tog means it feels so nice and warm for your child to be in – the padding feels just right for this time of year. The easy-dress poppers along the shoulders and double-direction zipper that opens along the bottom seam make it very easy to manoeuvre you child in and out of it. While the double-direction zipper also means it’s a doddle to make those middle-of-the-night changes that can so easily come about. And then there’s an extra popper underneath so you can alter the fit as your child grows. It’s available in various sizes from newborn all the way up to three years.
