I've read that you should use cellular blankets for baby to sleep to reduce risk of SIDS. I have been given (new) a couple of gro bag sleeping bags and a gro swaddle wrap. These are not cellular so how are these ok or should i not use them? Sorry if this is a stupid question. Dc1 due in June and my brain is going crazy with loads of questions!!
They're fine to use. Well, the swaddle certainly is, we used one from birth. At hospital they swaddled in cellular blankets. I don't know at what age you can start using grobags as we swaddled for months, but I assume it's right from birth?
The cellular bit refers to actual blankets, as they are cooler than fleecy blankets. I've never put DD under a blanket though, as she only slept when swaddled, so hopefully someone who used blankets will come along and tell you how to tuck in a tiny baby.
They are fine to use. If you use blankets they should be cellular. This is a precaution in case baby gets blanket on face. The holes mean that air still circulates so your baby can breathe. Gro bags are fastened onto the baby securely with poppers and zips so there is no danger of the baby getting its head underneath the bedding.
