after her kciking her blankets off for the 3rd night in a row and waking up a bit chilly, am going to get her a sleeping/grow bag thing. but what tog do i need? and how many should i get? is it worth buying 2-3 in case of accidents and not able to get them dry in time?

If yiou get them fron Gro-Bag company you get 10% discount if you buy two. Depends on how warm the room is - DSs have always on ever had 1 tog for winter and half a tog for summer.

Always worth getting 2 lovie!! ds loved his!! best to get the medium tog (8.5 i think) as if they get too cold you can add a blanket and take them out in the summer! Hows things going for you this weekend?

my room is pretty warm, gets the evening sun.

not too great spursmum, few setbacks. and kids driving me potty.

That should be in the kids job desciption!! make your parents carzy in record time. Things will be fine you'll see!

I think they come in 3 togs:

0.5 - really warm weather
1.0 - warm weather
2.5 - colder weather

If you are interested, I think I still have a 6-18 months 2.5 tog one which ds2 has grown out of.
CAT me if you'd like it (I don't want any money for it) and I can send it to you for when the weather is cooler (not that it's v hot at the mo!) It's a Peter Rabbit design, so not ultra girly - more unisex .

I only ever have one, but always throw it in the tumble dryer (never shrinks or fades)if there's an accident.

Just checked on the website - 2.5 tog is for "standard nursery temperature of 16-18 degrees".

misdee Sat 09-Jul-05 18:39:22

spursmum Sat 09-Jul-05 18:41:33

God your typing is worse than mine. Mothercare does their own sleeping bags, john lewis do grobags at £20. best thing ever invented i say!!

jessicaandbumpsmummy Sat 09-Jul-05 18:42:07

misdee Sat 09-Jul-05 18:49:25

will pop to john lewis next week, or order online. the ones on bumpto3 seem a bit pricey. do they have a good resale value?

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 18:53:55

Kiddicare do them cheap usually.

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 18:54:41

There you go, Misdee

Misdee ... Bump to Three here have some good discounts at the moment. Also, these people generally do them a bit cheaper than Bump to 3.

BTW, DS's room is around 25 deg c tonight and he'll be in a 1.5 tog with only a vest on. Same all sumnmer - even when 20 deg in room. So def recommend lighter bag with warmer tog for winter and a couple so as to have spare in case of the inevitable leaky nappies!
