A sleep sack can help your baby stay covered while sleeping
Until relatively recently, most parents would use blankets to keep their babies warm at night or during naps. However, research has shown that it is preferable to use baby sleeping bags or sleep sacks instead of loose blankets in the crib. In order to reduce the risk of SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, pediatricians recommend eliminating any loose bedding or toys that could accidentally cover baby’s face while he or she sleeps. Baby sleeping bags eliminate the need for loose blankets and are a better alternative. This is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using sleep sacks instead of blankets in the crib.

In addition to the safety issues with blankets, sleep sacks are also more convenient. Many parents complain that their baby kicks off his blanket at night and then wakes up feeling cold. A baby needs on average 16 hours of sleep per 24 hour period to thrive. Waking up at night due to temperature changes is a common problem and baby sleep sacks can help with this issue.

Baby sleeping bags can be either quilted or lighter weight depending on the season and the temperature of the nursery. With a blanket or a toddler quilt, baby won’t stay covered as he/she moves around while sleep sacks maintain baby at a constant temperature throughout the night.. These bags are available in different sizes and styles. They are sleeveless to enable babies to regulate their temperature (in a similar way to adults who usually sleep with their arms outside their quilt) and are available in a variety of colours, designs and styles.

Baby sleep sacks come in sizes up to 36 months. They are intended to be used by babies and toddlers that still sleep in a crib. Many two year olds move around a lot in their sleep and still don’t stay covered at night so the larger size 18-36m baby sleeping bags can solve this problem. Also wearing a sleep sack may discourage your baby from trying to climb out of the crib.

Baby sleeping bags can also be a good solution for camping with a baby and many parents bring them along for outdoor trips. Some sleep sacks carry a TOG rating. A tog of 0.5 is usually appropriate for a lightly air conditioned summer nursery or warmer winter homes (central heating). For chillier houses (nursery temperature 65-68 degrees Fahrenheit), a tog rating of 2.5 to 3 would be appropriate.
Baby sleeping bags replace loose objects in the crib and potentially dangerous blankets that can be kicked off. To know more and view latest designs please log on to
