I was reluctant to buy it because I was not sure whether would I be using it because we usually don't sleep in an air-conditioned room.
However, for the past few months, the weather here in Penang has been ridiculously hot. And if I were to carry Shern to sleep when he makes a fuss, both of us will be sticking to each other with our sweat.
So we have been turning the air conditioning on on most nights - at least for the first few hours of sleep. That was when I started researching about baby sleep bag again.
So what is a baby sleep bag?
Baby Sleep Bags are the safe alternative to traditional sheets and blankets. There are no covers to kick off or get tangled up in, so little ones stay cosy and safe during the night.
There are many different brands of a baby sleep bag but the leading one is Grobag.
So what makes Grobag so popular?
First of all, I like Grobag's aim of "Safety and comfort are at the heart of everything grobag do". This wins me there and then.
Safe - FSID’s (Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths) only recommended Baby Sleep Bag specialist
Good safety details - clever little extras like our secure zip-click and chin guard to ensure the head of the zip is tucked away under a cover, which is secured via a snap-on button under the chin. Firstly, it prevents baby from accidentally undoing the zip during sleep. Secondly, baby won't hurt himself because the zip is not exposed.
Choices - Available in a wide range of sizes, TOG rating and designs.
Four sizes (suitable for an age range from birth to 6 years old).
Three levels of TOGs (which basically measures warmth - higher equates to being warmer)
Chemical free - possess chemical free fire retardant polyester filling.
Comfort - cotton lining (100% cotton outer and 100% cotton flannelette lining on 1.0 tog) which is kind to baby's skin
Free nursery thermometer - help parents to regularly check if the sleeping bag being has the appropriate level of warmth.
I bought mine for a great bargain online.
So now I put Shern on his Grobag whenever we turned on the air conditioning in our room. He sleeps peacefully. And I sleep peacefully too knowing he is safe and warm.
