What To Consider When Buying A Baby Sleeping Bag

Using a baby sleeping bag means you don’t have to worry about how much bedding to use and it will keep your little one warm all night, no matter how much they kick around.

Baby Sleeping Bag Safety

A baby sleeping bag is less of a suffocation risk than a blanket, but still needs to be used properly.

Always check the baby sleeping bag complies with the British Safety Standard, BS 8510:2009 which ensures the neck opening is sized correctly to prevent baby slipping down inside the bag.

Always check that your baby’s head can’t slip through the shoulder straps and that your baby has plenty of room to kick around.

Make sure you use the correct Tog rating for the time of year. There are different Tog ratings for baby sleeping bags. Some are suitable for year round use and some are for summer or winter.

Are Baby Sleeping Bags Suitable For Newborn Babies?

There are lots of baby sleeping bags specifically designed for newborns.

Check the brand manufacturers instructions for using the sleeping bag safely and make sure the sleeping bag fits baby well around the shoulders so they can’t slip down into it.

Age Of Baby

Sleeping bags come in sizes with recommended age ranges so always go for the correct size for your child’s weight.

Fastenings

Check how the sleeping bag can be put on and removed. If you will be changing nappies during the night an extra zip at the front can come in handy so you don’t have to remove the sleeping bag for changing.

Side zips are also a good option for babies who wriggle around. Shoulder and underarm poppers are ideal to ensure a good fit.

On-The-Go Baby Sleeping Bags

Many parents choose to use sleeping bags when out and about. Some include a vent in the front and back of the sleeping bag to allow for a five-point harness, so that it can be used in a pushchair or a car seat.


I hope this list of the best baby sleeping bags was helpful.
