- our baby gets better sleep because of the security they feel in an enclosed blanket (which means more sleep for parents too!)
- It keeps material from covering your baby’s face, unlike loose sheets and blankets that don’t stay put through the night
- It gives a correct and consistent body temperature, so the baby doesn’t overheat
Why should my baby use a sleep sack?
Safety and comfort! A sleep sack keeps fabric away from your little one’s face while they’re asleep and keeps them secure and comfortable like an all-encompassing hug.
How should a Nest Designs sleep bag fit the baby?
Make sure you’re using a sleep bag intended for your baby’s age/size. Your baby should only take up ¾ of the bag, leaving the other ¼ for them to move around a little bit.
Why should I choose a sleep sack instead of a sleep suit?
There are definite perks to both options. Some reasons to choose a sleep sack is that they’re better for smaller babies, you can layer more clothes underneath, and they generally fit for longer than sleep suits as they offer more room to grow.
What does a baby wear under a sleep bag?
Dress them in whatever works best for the temperature of the room, keeping in mind the TOG rating of the sleep bag. Babies have a very charming way of letting you know if they’re too hot or cold (hello, crying!). You can put pajamas or onesies underneath, or let them sleep in just a diaper if it’s comfortable for them.Which sleep bags are best for warm seasons?
Choose a sleep bag with a lighter TOG rating, such as 0.25 TOG, 0.6 TOG, and 1.0 TOG.
Which sleep bags are best for cold seasons?
A heavier TOG, such as 2.5 TOG or 3.5 TOG
Do I want long or short sleeves?
Depending on the temperature and what’s most comfortable for your baby, select no sleeves or short sleeves in warmer temperatures and sleeves for cooler temperatures. For a versatile option, pick a sleep sack with removable sleeves.
How do you clean a sleep sack?
It’s super easy to keep your Nest Designs sleep bag clean, just toss it in the wash! A few instructions: wash it in warm water with similar colors and tumble dry on low. Don’t bleach, iron, or dry clean. Poof! It’s ready for another night of slumber.
