Ooooo, now I'm interested too... Couple of worries though...my son's a wriggler, if he wriggles down the bed - how would he get out from duvet...is there anything to stop them getting stuck? Also isn't 4/8 tog a bit hot considering max grobag is 2.5 and this still seems to be a bit like a sleeping bag. Waiting patiently for more info!
Hi, I am the same UmSami, have a daughter who wriggles but hoped this would a. stop her falling out of bed and mean I don't have to buy 2 cot sides b. look a bit more "grown up" like brother and sister. Hope to hear from someone who has used one.
If you get the bump to 3 catalogue - it explains how the tog thing works - basically bigger surface area then higher tog needed- I can't explain it very well but when I read it in the catalogue it made perfect sense - now can't find the catalogue!- from what I understand the duvet zips onto the fitted sheet to keep child in and warm but would love to know what someone who has bought one thinks!
Because the size of the cot bed is smaller it automatically retains more heat when the child is sleeping, however, the larger surface area in a single bed means the child only heats the area he/she is sleeping in, therefore, a higher tog rating is required on the single bed size. The single bed size comprises of 2 x 4 tog duvets that popper together giving flexibility to reduce the tog to 4 togs when the nighttime temperatures
A. Health professional guidelines recommend that baby sleeping bags should be lightweight'. Our own research and our mounting body of "parent testimonials" confirm that our 2.5 Tog grobag® baby sleeping bags are ideal for the UK climate. A baby sleeping bag surrounds the baby, providing insulation from both below and above, and also a warm pocket of air around the baby.
Because of the low tog rating grobag® baby sleeping bags also provide a versatility that a higher tog sleeping bag would not allow, and both our 2.5 tog and 1.0 tog baby sleeping bags can be used for the vast majority of the year.
When the weather is very cold, simply add more clothing (this could include a sleepsuit, socks and even a cardigan). When the weather is warmer, or perhaps if your child is unwell, you can remove layers of clothing while still keeping your baby at the right temperature. Never use a duvet or quilt with a baby sleeping bag.
I have one! It's FAB! Ds never falls out of bed, it's really nice cotton, nice design (we have the blue stripey one) and all round great. I imagine if they get to the stage where they don't need it to be zipped down, you can just use it as a normal duvet etc. It's also not quite as expensive as it looks when you consider it takes the place of the sheet + duvet cover + pillowcase.
The only problem is it's a total bugger to get on the bed the first time when you're not yet used to it. I was stuck with it for ages (but I am a bit thick with such things). They could do with adding instructions to the packet as I didn't find it intuitive at all.
Ds did seem to get very hot under the duvet itself so not sure I'd get that given the choice - I think I'd go for a slightly lighterweight one but then ds is a very hot child.
