Morning ladies
My LO is 12 weeks old and im trying to get him to sleep in a grobag but he doesnt seem to like it. When its bedtime and hes drowsy I'll place him in his basket and shush pat till he falls asleep. Im currently using a cellular blanket and tuck it all under the mattress to stop his kicking his legs and have to hold his arms as he'll flail them all over the place while shush patting him to sleep. How did you transition your babies into grobag? When do you put baby in it - after feeding, after bath?

We put dd in hers after her bath but before last bottle. Found that was the easiest way. Otherwise she wakes up too much if drowsy. Hth

I waited another few weeks, I think she was about 4 months, and her Moro reflex had significantly reduced

We are going into summer and soon it will be too hot for a normal Grobag. I used blankets with my children when they were younger. Grobags are useful when they get can roll at four to six months.

We used a grobag from about two months.

Put him in it in the evening after bath and then I BF him to sleep in it.

You get different togs of grobag so you can use them all year. I would put it on prior to the last feed
