Question by michele m:
Looking for specific kind of infant sleep sack.?

I’m looking to purchase an infant sleep bag/sack that is made of high thread count cotton in a adorable print. Everything seems to be out of stretchy fabric…I want it made out of the same fabric my bed sheets are made of. Does anyone know where I can purchase this? I do not feel like making one myself.

QUESTION ABOUT GROBAGS AND SIMILAR BABY SLEEPING BAGS? http://birthpolicy.org/142/question-about-grobags-and-similar-baby-sleeping-bags/ http://birthpolicy.org/142/question-about-grobags-and-similar-baby-sleeping-bags/#comments Wed, 22 Sep 2010 14:54:44 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/142/question-about-grobags-and-similar-baby-sleeping-bags/ Question by happy wife and mum:
Question about grobags and similar baby sleeping bags?

When using a grobag, do you still need to do the suggested ‘feet to foot’ posiiton in the cot?
I purchased one and there’ll be a lot of excess sleeping bag at the bottom as it’s quite a bit longer than a newborn. If I put the baby’s feet at the foot of the bed, where will all the excess sleping bag go? Will not it all be bunched up at the end?


——————————————

Answer by mama b
Hi, I do not think the feet to foot thing is as vital with grobags as the baby doesn’t have the issue of wriggling under the covers. I put the end of the grobag at the foot of the cot and put my tiny girl in it – so her feet are probably about 4 inches from the foot of the bed. I think the grobags are excellent as my 6 month old has recently started to ‘thrash around’ in her sleep. If she was under a cover it would be off her, or over her head or restrict her movement. I do not think they are suggested for newborns though? (make sure he/she cannot wriggle down in to the neck of the grobag). I started using one when she was about 2-3 months old and transferred from the moses basket to the cot. In the moses basket she was tucked in with a sheet/blanket. They also come in different tog ratings – we have got a 2.5 tog one for most nights and a 1 tog one for hot summer nights. Hope this helps, but check out what your health visitor thinks is best.

Question about sleeping bags – do babies sleep superior if their feet are being held together or lose?

Or is it just a question of age?


——————————————

Answer by Anastasia H
It’s a question of age, mostly, even though some young babies like to have their legs loose, too. My first daughter liked to be swaddled for the first several months, but my second went straight to a sleep sack after about a month. I still have my older one in sleep sacks at two years old! I like them because they stay put, unlike blankets, which children can easily kick off. I also do not like the idea of blankets in the crib, but I am just anal like that.

How do you put your infant to sleep? Eg. Which blankets/sleeping bag?

Hi girls..

My boy is 10 weeks on thursday. I still half swaddle him with the proper swaddle blanket..(under his arms)

How do you dress your baby to sleep?
How do you put your baby to sleep? How many blankets (if you use them)
Do you use the sleeping bags? If so when did you begin using them?

Hope your all okay :]


——————————————

Answer by 76jules79
I used bags from birth even though my son was large. I have just started using a pillow and duvet (19months now) and generally dress him in a vest and grow or pajamas. In summer I omit the vest or if it’s really hot then he just wears a vest. I used to put him on his back but he rolled at 3 months and has slept on his front ever since. I still lay him on his back when I put him down though.
