What baby sleeping bags does everyone use?
Does everyone use Grobag or can you recommend some different ones?

I use Grobags or Jonelle (John Lewis brand) ones.
Both wash well and you can get them in bigger sizes (18 - 36 months)

I use grobags (I got them in the sale before ds was born)or the mamas and papas dreampod (I think thats the name) which I got from TK Maxx at a reduced price. I dont like paying full price for sleeping bags but they are both good quality and wear well. I did try the Asda ones but they seemed to shrink and ended up much shorter then the other ones I had. Kiddicare normally has grobags a bit cheaper than full price

Grobag from Kiddicare

Grobag, M&S and Jonelle have been good

The Grobag sizing is different to some of the cheaper ones - they do a 6-18 month which was ridiculously big on my 6 month M&S one was 6-12 which I liked as an in-between option.

I have used different kinds but am very happy at the moment with Slumbersacs I found on ebay, the sellers shop is Komfikidz, they have a website too and their prices are really really good.

I've used both Grobags and the John Lewis ones for my DD - however, I'm not so keen on the ones with the towelling on the inside, as every morning after DD had worn it, I had to disentangle her little toes from the unravelled towelling, which must've been really uncomfortable for her .

It does sound like Grobags are the most commonly used, but it's really good to hear about the alternatives too.

There is an aussie version called a bubbaroo which i preferred. its lining was like a towel whcih is nicer than poly cotton and abosorbed sweat. there in an expensive nz brand merino something that looks fantastic and lasts until they're 2 so isn't that expensive in the long run.

We used the mamas and papas dreampods which washed well and were lovely and soft, but ds grew out of the 6-18 month one when he was 10 months old! He's now in a summer weight grobag.

I like Grobag because I trust them that the tog rating will be what they say. You can get them used on Ebay about half price - the only "wear" they really get is from washing.

I also got my mum to make one from a sheet (for very hot summer) using another Grobag as a pattern - worked well, although it took her a couple of hours, and she's a professional seamstress...

I've got the Bambino Merino one. Can't remember how much it cost (we bought it at Baby Show ages before DS was born) but like someone said, it lasts from 3mths until 2 years old. It has no tog rating as they claim the wool keeps baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We are more than happy with it and if DS's nappy has leaked in the night, it's rare that it goes through to the sleeping bag - it repels the wetness somehow?

We have some non-Grobag ones from TKMaxx - will check labels when I get home - but one is towelling inside.
Also have a Tchibo one (v good value).

TKMaxx ones are 'Dormouse Collection'
