Benefits Of Using A Baby Sleeping Bag

Here’s how to choose the best baby sleeping bag, plus our favourite ones to keep your little one snug and warm all night long.

Benefits of using a baby sleeping bag

  • Better sleep. I don’t know a single parent who doesn’t yearn for a night of uninterrupted sleep! As there are no sheets or blankets to kick off, your baby won’t wake up cold. A bag also keeps your baby at a consistent warm temperature. The cosier your baby, the better he’ll sleep.
  • Safety. Not only are sleep bags super snuggly, they’re actually much safer than loose blankets. Since 2005, the Amercian Academy of pediatrics  has suggested the use of wearable blankets because loose sheets and blankets pose a major suffocation threat.
  • Comfort. A sleeping bag can act as a familiar ‘comforter’ for your baby, making sleep times easier even when he’s away from home, or during travelling, and eases the transition from basket to cot and cot to bed.
  • Sleep association cues. Your baby will quickly develop a sleep association where sleeping bag = bedtime.

Choosing the right tog

Many baby sleeping bags have a certain thickness, known as the tog rating. The higher the tog, the warmer the bag. As South Africa’s climate is relatively moderate, it’s not necessary to change bags with the seasons. A 2 or a 2.5 tog rating is generally ideal for our climate.
