grobags - necessary?

I have a 3 week old son and am using blankets for sleep as was told grobags not safe until their heads are bigger and won't slip through.
Now I'm wondering, why change? I heard grobags keep them at the right temperature, but I can't help thinking it's nicer to sleep under a blanket.
If we did get grobags, surely we'd need loads - different togs, different sizes and one for the wash of each? So could I save some money by not buying something unnecessary?
Thanks

Of course not an utter necessity but so useful!

Esp liked that it keeps them cosy during night feeds and eased that transition back into the cot afterwards.

Well worth it imho.

Thanks, useful advice!

Don't buy the expensive grobags, you can buy baby sleeping bags somewhere like asda for a lot less cash. Definitely worth it. Dd is 9 weeks and in a grobag at night as she kicks the blanket off now and it's freezing.

They're great for my little wriggler. I got them cheap on ebay.
