FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a Baby Sleep Bag?

A Baby Sleep Bag (or Baby Sleeping Bag) is a ?wearable blanket? designed for babies to be used instead of traditional blankets and sheets. Baby Sleep Bags have a neck opening and armholes and are therefore ?worn? by the baby to help the baby stay at the right temperature through the night without the problem of traditional blankets and sheets being kicked off or getting tangled up..

Why should I use a Baby Sleep Bag instead of blankets and sheets?

? They stop babies kicking off their covers, getting cold and waking themselves and everyone else up

? They can?t be kicked over your baby?s head or get tangled up

? They keep babies at a comfortable temperature all night long

? Your baby can wake up, move around his cot, and fall back to sleep all on his own without you having to tuck them back in

? They become a great part of the bedtime routine, and will help your baby feel familiar, secure and confident and understand when its time for bed, even when away from home

? They can help the transition from Moses basket to cot by being the familiar ?comforter? in both

? They may delay the age at which your baby rolls over onto his tummy

? They may delay the age at which your baby is able to climb out of his cot..

Are Baby Sleep Bags the same as Baby Sleeping Bags?

Yes. A new British Standard BS8510:2009 has recently been produced which has brought the newer term ?Baby Sleep Bags? into more common usage. This is to avoid Baby Sleep Bags being confused with traditional camping sleeping bags. Baby Sleep Bags (formerly called Baby Sleeping Bags) are wearable blankets with armholes and neck openings and are therefore quite unlike camping sleeping bags..

Are Baby Sleep Bags safe?

Yes. Well fitting, low-tog Baby Sleep Bags, when used correctly, are potentially one of the safest forms of bedding for your baby. While the baby has complete freedom of movement within the Baby Sleep Bag, the fitted neck and armholes ensure that there is no danger of either slipping in or out, provided the baby is placed in the correct size of Baby Sleep Bag for his age/weight. Therefore, provided also that a suitable level of nightwear is worn, he can sleep safely at a pleasant and constant temperature throughout the night..

The Gro Company has conducted exhaustive research and product testing to ensure that all the components of our Grobag Baby Sleep Bags conform to the British Safety Standards and safety regulations. The National Standards Body of the UK has created a new standard BS8510:2009. Grobag Baby Sleep Bags are one of the first to achieve the new standard which further ensures all aspects of quality and safety.

What should my baby wear under a Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

What your baby wears will depend on the tog of Grobag Baby Sleep Bag and the temperature of your baby's bedroom. (In the same way as you would adjust nightclothes and number of blankets). As a guide, please refer to the table below. Please remember, though, that babies are all different and, just as with blankets and sheets, you will soon discover what your baby is most comfortable wearing. Placing your fingers on your baby?s chest is the best indicator of whether they are too hot/too cold/just right as babies? hands often feel cool..

What to wear under sleeping bag

Which weight of Grobag Baby Sleep Bag should I buy?

Our 2.5 tog Grobag Baby Sleep Bags are ideal for Autumn, Winter and Spring and can be used right up until the Summer nights become warm. If your nursery is usually below 20C, we recommend a 2.5 tog Grobag. However, if you live in a particularly mild region or if you have well insulated and heated accommodation and your nursery is usually 21C or above, you may prefer a 1.0 tog Grobag for year round use. Our 1.0 tog Grobags are ideal for use from during the Summer months when the nights are warmer and are also very useful in early Spring and Autumn for day-time naps whilst your baby is still in a 2.5 tog Grobag at night. 0.5 tog Grobag Baby Sleep Bags are for use in high Summer, for holidays abroad, or if your child is unwell and has a raised temperature..

Why only 2.5 togs when my Winter weight duvet is 12 togs?

Health professional guidelines recommend that Baby Sleep Bags should be ?lightweight'. Our own research and our mounting body of "parent testimonials" confirm that our 2.5 Tog Grobag Baby Sleep Bags are ideal for the UK climate and for the recommended nursery nursery temperatures of 16C to 20C. A Baby Sleep Bag surrounds the baby, providing insulation from both below and above, and also a warm pocket of air around the baby..

Because of the low tog rating, Grobag Baby Sleep Bags also provide great versatility throughout the year, simply by adjusting the level of your baby?s nightwear. When the weather is very cold, simply add more clothing (this could include a sleepsuit, socks and even a cardigan). When the weather is warmer, or perhaps if your child is unwell, you can remove layers of clothing while still keeping your baby at the right temperature..

Remember: never use a duvet or quilt with a Baby Sleep Bag..

What does the TOG rating mean?

The Tog rating describes the warmth or "Thermal Resistance" of a product and is widely used in the UK to explain warmth levels of duvets. Grobag Baby Sleep Bags are tog tested to conform to BS4745:1990 and to the new British Standard BS 8510:2009. Latest advice from Health professionals is that Baby Sleep Bags should be ?lightweight' and to meet the new British Standard, Baby Sleep Bags must be between 2.0 and 3.5 togs for temperatures between 10C and 20C. This is why our main range of Grobags are 2.5 togs for the recommended ideal nursery temperature range of 16C and 20C..

What is the best room temperature for my baby?

FSID and Health Professionals recommend that the ideal room temperature for your baby is between 16C and 20C, and ideally at 18C/65F. Our 2.5 tog Grobag Baby Sleep Bags are designed to be used in this temperature range. If the nursery is warmer or colder, simply adjust the level of clothing your baby is wearing. During summer months, or in warmer climates, if your baby?s nursery is above 20C and we recommend using our 100% cotton 1.0 tog or 0.5 tog Grobags..

Many people ask us how to keep the nursery at around 18C in the winter, without having to have the central heating going all night! We recommend an inexpensive small thermostatically controlled heater which is available from all good electrical or DIY outlets. Position it well away from your baby?s cot and out of reach of your baby, and adjust it to come on just whenever needed in order to maintain the ideal room temperature, thus saving time and money turning on and off all the radiators. (Remember to remove the heater once your child can climb out of his cot)..

We also provide a FREE nursery thermometer with every Grobag to help you monitor the temperature of your baby's bedroom..

What should I do if my baby gets too cold or too hot?

If your baby has woken up because he is too cold, pick him up & adjust either the temperature of the room, or the baby's clothing. You can cuddle your baby in his Grobag to warm him up again before putting him back, warm and cosy in his cot. If your baby feels hot, you should cool him down by removing some clothing, then either adjust the temperature of the bedroom or the clothes your baby is wearing before returning him to his cot..

Is there any danger that my baby could become too hot in a Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

Provided you follow the guidelines on your nursery thermometer (provided FREE with every Grobag Baby Sleep Bag), there should be no danger of your baby over-heating. Always keep your baby?s head uncovered. It is safest to use a Baby Sleep Bag without sleeves and never use any clothing or bedding with a hood attached. Decrease the level of nightclothes and bedding if your baby is unwell and has a raised temperature. If you are in any doubt, please consult a Health Professional..

What size Grobag Baby Sleep Bag should I buy?

Our 0-6 month size Grobag Baby Sleep Bag is suitable from birth if your baby weighs 8lb 8oz (4kg)or more or from when your baby reaches this weight. It will last until your baby is 6 months old and may well last longer..

The 6-18 month size is suitable from when your baby is 18lb (8.1 kg) and is generously sized so may easily last until your baby is between 18 and 24 months..

Our 18-36 month size is suitable from when your toddler weighs 25lb (11.4kg) and many toddlers are still wearing their Grobags well after the age of 3..

What size to buy

How many Grobag Baby Sleep Bags should I buy?

As the larger sizes last for at least a year, we recommend you buy at least 2 Grobags (so you will always have a spare one if you suddenly need one in the middle of the night!)..

Why don't Grobag Baby Sleep Bags have sleeves?

We believe that Baby Sleep Bags should be sleeveless to aid heat loss and air circulation. (Babies sleeping under traditional blankets rarely sleep with their arms inside). The new British Standard also stipulates that Baby Sleep Bags should be ?without sleeves or hoods?. In cooler weather, we recommend long-sleeve bodysuits, in addition to a long-sleeved pyjama top, pyjamas or a sleepsuit..

How do I wash my Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

All Grobag Baby Sleep Bags can be machine washed at 40C. They can be hung out to dry or tumble dried on a low setting. As with all cotton goods, we have designed our Grobags to allow for up to 5% shrinkage. If your child has any allergies and you wish to wash your Grobag at 60C, you should allow for a little more shrinkage. In general, think environment ? if not dirty wash at 30C!.

When washing, it is best to keep the zip closed. You can iron your Grobags on a low heat if desired, always keeping the iron away from the zip or covering the zip with a cloth..

We recommend that you wash dark colours separately for the first few washes. We also recommend that you wash your Grobag with a detergent that is free from bleaching agents in order to retain the original colours..

When do I stop using a Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

Grobag Baby Sleep Bags can be used right up to the time your child is ready to move from a cot to a bed, and because of the freedom of movement they allow, they can be used even longer if your child wishes. Even though your toddler will happily stand up in a zipped Grobag, cot-climbing will be far from easy, and your Grobag may well delay the age at which you have to move your child to a bed - a big bonus! Grobags are available for children age 3-6 years who just love them so much, they don't want to say Good-bye! Please note that this size is very generous ? so don't consider it until your child has grown out of the 18-36 month size Grobag. We also have 6-10 years size Grobags with double slider zip suitable for older children who aren?t suited to traditional bedding..

What other bedding can I use with my Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

You should use your Grobag instead of blankets and sheets. The only other bedding required is a bottom sheet. Grobags are designed to replace blankets and sheets. They come in three tog (warmth) ratings for your individual baby and the temperature of your baby?s sleeping place. Duvets, quilts and pillows should not be used for babies under 1 year old and never with a Baby Sleep Bag. FSID recommend that the safest place for your baby to sleep is in a cot or crib in your room for the first six months. However, if your baby shares your bed, make sure he is only in a Grobag, and not under your own bedding as well. Please note that Grobags are designed to replace blankets and sheets in your baby's cot or bed. They are not intended for use as dressing gowns outside the baby's bedroom..

Important: never use your Grobag Baby Sleep Bag with a duvet or quilt..

Why do I have a Grobag with a label in that says it can be used from 7lbs in weight?

Before the new British Standard was produced, Grobag Baby Sleep Bags conformed to a Voluntary Code of Practice in the UK which was published by the Baby Products Association in 2005. The recommendations in this code were based on the information available on average babies? birth weights and head and neck circumferences. The new British Standard working group has made recommendations based on increased average birth weights of babies, and their corresponding average head and neck circumferences and therefore the neck measurements that a Baby Sleep Bag must have in order to conform. Babies come in all shapes and sizes and the most important thing is for you to feel confident that your baby is not in a Baby Sleep Bag which might be too large for him..

Why is the weight of the baby so important for the smaller size Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

Our key safety consideration is to ensure that babies cannot slip down inside the Baby Sleep Bag. Therefore, we design the neck size to be as large as possible to allow comfort and heat loss, whilst being smaller than the average head circumference of the younger age/lower weight of baby we advise for the Grobag Baby Sleep Bag. We use health professional graphs to link head sizes with weight and this is also in line with the new British Standard for Baby Sleep Bags (BS 8510:2009). Most new parents do not know the head circumference of their babies, but they can keep a track of their weight, hence we use weight as a guide..

You must always take care not to allow your baby's head to slip down and get covered by any bedding, whether that bedding is a Grobag Baby Sleep Bag, blankets or sheets..

When can I first put my baby in a Grobag Baby Sleep Bag?

Our 0-6 months Grobag Baby Sleep Bag can be used for a full-term, 8lb 8oz (4kg) baby from birth. However, if your baby weighs less than 8lb 8oz (4kg) at birth, we recommend you wait a short time, until your baby grows larger. For the first few weeks and for babies under 8lb 8oz (4kg), we recommend the Grobag Swaddle as a safe and easy alternative for your baby. Our 0-6 month size Grobag includes under-arm poppers to reduce the size of the armholes for babies up to 10lbs (4.5kg)..

CHOOSING A SIZE:

An ideal time to start using a Grobag baby sleep bag is when your baby weighs more than 8 lbs 8oz (0-6 mths size). It is very important to check that your baby?s head cannot pass through the neck-hole when the Grobag is fastened for use. Please remember that these are recommendations only as all babies are different..

A tog measurement is a European warmth rating: the higher the tog, the warmer the product. Grobag baby sleep bags are available in three tog ratings..
