Have you ever had that really annoying moment when you’ve just fallen into a deep sleep and you hear your baby start to cry (in the middle of the night – it’s always the middle of the night)?  You drag yourself out of bed, trip over a couple of toys, stand on a piece of Lego and try not to swear as you make your way down the passage, in the dark, to the kids bedroom.  You get there and quickly realise that bubs is not hungry or thirstily, her nappy is good, and she’s not in any pain!  The problem is……………… she’s kicked off the blankets AGAIN and the cold has woken her up (and consequently you too).  Then just to add insult to injury, now that she’s up, she thinks it’s time to play, so don’t think about going back to your snug warm bed just yet mummy!!!

I have always used sleep bags for all three of my children and I can honestly say that I swear by them.  You might still need to use a blanket in the cooler winter months, but at least if they wearing a long sleeved babygro or onesie  (to cover their arms) and they do happen to kick the blanket off (which they will, believe me), the chances of them waking up cold when they’re still nice and snug in a sleep bag are almost 100% less!!  I can honestly vouch for that from my own experience!!!

Three most important bed time essentials:  inVENTA Sleep bag, bunny and taggie blanket

I was recently sent a beautiful winter sleep bag from Love to Dream to try out and review.  You might recognise their ‘Love to swaddle’ range which is fabulous and so popular with mums of tiny babies.  The sleep bag that we got for Miss L was the new winter 2.5 tog from the ‘Love to inVENTA range which comes in sizes 4-12 months or 12 to 36 months.

From the minute I took it out of the box I was impressed.  It had a really super soft feel to it, and I’ve already washed it twice and the quality of the fabric is fantastic.  Unlike the usual polyester filling the inVenta winter sleep bag is filled with 100% bamboo which is both breathable and antibacterial.

The bit that I absolutely loved the most (and even Mr D was impressed) was it’s genius cooling system, which allows you to regulate your child’s temperature without disturbing them or waking them up.  Each sleeping bag has two zips running across it (front and back) which when opened reveal a mesh fabric letting air into the bag.  Too clever!  They also have a back to front travel slot so you can put your child into a car seat (with a five pint seatbelt) without taking them out of their sleep bag.  A very handy little feature indeed.  That way if your bubs falls asleep in the car it’s so much easier to transfer them to bed without waking them.

Awesome prize – worth $99.95

Miss L has the gender neutral beige bag with a cute little elephant on it, but you can choose pink or blue in a variety of different designs.

  1. Sleeping bag provides the perfect warmth in all conditions and mostly there is no need to provide extra blanket.There is less risk of the baby slipping underneath or wriggling out which makes the baby to sleep for a longer duration and mum also gets a chance to sleep well…..

  2. My little girl is a wriggler and the only way I can guarantee a decent nights sleep is to have her in a sleeping bag. They also help with the cool Canberra weather

  3. I think the most important bit is that sleeping bags give Mums and Dads peace of mind. A safe way to warm babies/ children and you can rest more easily knowing they are warm enough…

    • I totally agree. There is always that worry that they could wriggle underneath the covers and suffocate when they’r tiny. Sleeping bags totally stop that from happening xxx

    • haha – there is always one isn’t there. My Master J used to scream the house down when he saw the bag because he knew it meant bed time!!! Luckily he slept really well in it! xx

  4. My little man used to be fine with a wrap, then progressed to a blanket with no problems. Until the day he learnt to roll. Now I cannot keep him covered at night! But a sleeping bag solves the problem, he can roll as much as he likes, the sleeping bag rolls with him!

  5. I like the sleepsacks because it keeps my little one warm without having to worry about blankets and it makes diaper changes so quick and easy

  6. My little miss will hopefully be out of her harness soon for hip dysplasia so I’ll be needing a sleeping bag then as I don’t think she’ll stay under the blankets 🙂

  7. I actually don’t have a sleeping bag, I still keep going in to my bubs room and covering her… The sleeping bags sound great
