The sleeping bag is the best choice when it comes to the safety of your sleeping child. By using the correct sleeping bag, in terms of size and warmth grade (tog), you will ensure your child’s body temperature is just right - she will be protected from the cold and at the same time from overheating. According to the newest studies, this can also decrease the risk of the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Tips and guidelines for a safer sleep with a sleeping bag:
-The sleeping bag is a type of a cover and is used instead of blankets, sheets, comforters, quilts, etc.
-The sleeping bag can be used from birth. Our sleeping bags were designed with snap buttons underneath the armpits, which allows you to adjust the size of the armholes in order to ensure the best possible fit (sizes 0-6 Months).
- It is very important that you use a sleeveless sleeping bag to avoid the danger of overheating. Babies cannot regulate their own body temperature the way adults can because their sweat glands are still developing. A sleeveless sleeping bag will allow the air to circulate and ensure a balanced temperature.
- The correct choice of the warmth grade (thickness, tog) of a sleeping bag is influenced by the temperature in the child’s bedroom, rather than the season. You can find detailed information about choosing the right WARMTH GRADE HERE.
When reviewing the guidelines, please take into consideration that there may be cultural differences when it comes to the way parents raise their children in different countries (for example some prefer lower room temperatures than others) and if in doubt always ask your doctor.
-The correct size of your child’s sleeping bag is very important for his/her safety. When choosing the right size, please take your child’s length and weight into consideration. The child’s head should not be able to go through the neckline, so that the child does not slide down into the sleeping bag. At the same time, the neckline should not be too tight.
