“100 days of life-changing innovations
From medical advancements to must-have devices, 100 days of life-changing innovations celebrates the technological breakthroughs and inventions that have really made a difference to our lives. ”
And what were we were delighted to find on Day 54? The Baby sleeping bag
It was nominated by Justine Roberts, Founder of MumsNet and this is why.
“After the newborn stage, babies are as wriggly as eels: pop into their rooms a few hours after bedtime and chances are you’ll find that, not only have they turned themselves around in their cot, they’ve also relocated from one end to the other. So spare a thought for the parents of the pre-Grobag era, whose children would either end up tangled and sweating in a knot of blankets, or coverless, frozen and wailing. Grobags are, literally, bedclothes in the form of bags – pop your baby in feet first, fasten them up over the shoulders, and hey presto, they’re tucked up all night. A particular advantage for me was that they made travelling easy – no matter where we stayed, bedtime felt familiar. I even had one with holes for car straps, so I could lift a sleeping child out of the car seat and straight into bed.”
At Pixie & Jack we couldn’t agree more. Sleeping bags for babies are a beloved favourite of many sleep-deprived parents and have proved to be a real hit with our customers too as you can see from our reviews. This simple yet effective idea keeps babies snug and still during sleep. They can’t kick the covers off and get cold, they can’t get stuck under the covers and get too hot. We’ve made a lovely range of sleeping bags with a cosy 2.5 tog rating and available in two sizes – 0-6 months and 6-18 months. They are all tested to current British safety standards, read more about how we ensure all our products are completely safe for babies.
