Need baby sleeping-bag that zips up rather than having poppers on the shoulders - does anyone do them?

When DS1 and DS2 were babies they had a sleeping bag that zipped up the front. Unfortunately it was completely worn out so I chucked it away.

DS3 has a baby sleeping bag that has straps over the shoulders that fasten to the bodice bit of it with press studs. The problem is that he can get the press studs open really easily - he only has to stand up in his cot and they just go pop pop.

Does anyone know where to get baby sleeping bags that don't have these press-stud/popper things? I got the DSs original one at Green Baby in Islington but they don't seem to do them any more.

gro-bags zip up the front

Gro-Bags are zippered - from top to bottom, which is good for nappy changes

Dinosaur, ASDA do some lovely ones for a tenner!

They look as if they have poppers on the shoulders...?

no they're zipped all down the side and around the bottom i think so you can unzip them as far as you need to.

Dino - the Gro-bag I had was like the 'transport' one on the link below - it had a zip.

Wow to think that DS3 is at standing-in-cot age already!!!

Okay thanks guys. I've looked on the kiddicare website and they actually have the combisleeper ones, which is what I originally had for DS1 and DS2. They're much more expensive but they're great because they're very versatile - it's basically a 1.0 tog bag with a 1.5 tog cotton fleece lining, so you can use them seaprately or put them together for a cosy 2.5 tog bag. Also ohas detachable sleeves.

Next question - if I buy it by clkcing on kiddicare button, how do I get my mumsnet discount??? Anyone know?
