Mummy Confession: I love trying products, comparing them and trying to let others know what great options are out there for their child. So much the same when talking about sleep wear. I also like making lists of all products in a certain category…so here is the fruit of my labour!
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post, nor have I tried all of the following options (though I am happy to should a brand wish to send one for evaluation!). This post contains some affiliate links by which I earn commissions from qualifying sales. Word links are mostly Australian Amazon or other Aussie sites and photos are for US Amazon.
Sleeping bags, sleep suits, pyjamas…there are SO many options when it comes to winter time and sleep wear. Where do you start?
There are a few options out there, depending on what your baby prefers. I will list the ones I know of, as well as the lovely options you have. I recommend checking out reviews of these products before purchase, and asking questions if you have any regarding sizing, tog ratings, materials, or anything else relevant. ( I will try to add to this list as I gain knowledge about any of the following, but you can click through to find more information about each brand listed.)
Before I go on too much, I do recommend checking out Mumma Morrison’s 2017 Winter Sleeping Bag Overview where she reviews and compares several brands of sleeping bags for baby. Another helpful area may be checking out my sleepwear post from last year which covers a few other options.
Many of these are tog rated to reflect how you should layer your baby according to the temperature. The GroEgg2 is also a perfect companion to these sleeping options, as it tells the room temperature, and the light changes to reflect the temperature without you needing to guess or wake baby to check.
(Are you having trouble getting bub to settle or sleep? Check out my post here on different tips to settle bub or get bub to stay asleep) or if you’re beyond exhausted , here are some resources for pregnancy, babies and beyond.
