Hi, I am struggling to dress my 8 month old boy at night during these hot humid nights. I usually put him in a babygro or vest on him covered with a cellular blanket but I am finding that he is either too warm or too cold as he kicks the covers off as he moves quite a bit whilst he sleeps. Can anyone recommend know a lightweight summer sleep suits? I’ve seen ErgoPouch in John Lewis has anyone tried these before?

Try a sleep sack. We had a really lightweight one for the summer, and they can't kick it off!

Which sleep sacks Inappropriaterasberry?

I have been using some supermarket own brand ones and they are just too hot and sweaty even the lighter summer ones. I don't think the fabrics are quite right for warmer weather. I'm struggling with this too.

We got this one, only 0.5 tog. Just put him in a vest and a sleep sack. No need for a blanket if really warm.

There are lots on amazon! I ended up ordering the wrong size in the end, it was too big, but it still worked!

I decided to give ErgoPouch sleep suit bag 1 tog a go. It was a good decision! My 8 month old has not slept through the night until now! It's a toddler sleeping bag with legs/feet which I think is best for my son as he likes too wriggle around and feels trapped in a traditional sleep bag. The ErgoPouch is a natural fibre sleeping bag Which is so gentle on my sons skin especially as the night have been really warm so he is just in a vest.
I think the best feature of the bag is that you can change the bag into a suit with legs which is so convenient moving my son from the car seat to cot on a let night visit to friends so I don't have to disturb his sleep. The ErgoPouch retails from £55.99 which is a bit more expensive than other brands however the suit is large so will fit your little from 6 months up to at least 2 years of age so it's well worth the cost and you font have the hassle of replacing the bag.
I bought my ErgoPouch in John Lewis.
