A sleep bag is a wearable blanket that lets you keep your baby warm during sleep. It's a blanket with sleeves, which is worn over the top of pajamas or other clothing.
In the winter months, sleep bags are one of the safest ways to keep your little one warm at night, especially if he or she has trouble regulating body temperature during slumber. These blankets limit the risk of overheating by keeping your baby’s hands and feet from getting too hot. They also prevent loose bedding from becoming a choking hazard as well as protect against SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Many parents find them easier than traditional blankets because they don't have to worry about blankets slipping off their child while they're sleeping or waking up half-covered in bedding when it comes time for wakeful playtime during the day!
You can find a range of sleep bags at our store, from our Sleep Nest Kicker for more flexibility, or our snuggly Sleep Nest Original and more mid-weight Sleep Nest Fleece.
Why is it safe?
If you are looking for a safe way to keep your baby warm, a sleep bag is the perfect choice for you. Sleep bags can be used with or without cotton layers underneath, and it's easy to adjust their temperature by adding or removing layers of clothing if needed. They are also easy to clean because they do not have any hard parts that could trap dirt or bacteria inside them (like buttons).
Additionally, some parents find it difficult when caring for young babies who prefer sleeping on their stomachs instead of their backs due to reflux issues (GERD), flat head syndrome (plagiocephaly), etc., but with a sleep bag this does not matter as much since there are no loose parts or seams around their mouths which might cause chafing during their slumber!
How can I select the correct sleep bags for babies?
- Make sure the sleep bag is comfortable.
- Check the size of the sleep bag.
- Check the weight of the sleep bag.
- Check material of the sleep bag, as it may be harmful to your baby's skin if it is rough or has sharp edges.
- Look out for safety features like zippers that cannot be opened by children, since this can lead to suffocation accidents when they are sleeping in their cribs or cots without supervision
How to maintain baby sleep bags?
- Wash the sleep bag in cold water and then dry it in a shade.
- Do not use bleach or fabric softener on the sleep bag as this may damage the fabric of your baby’s sleep bag, causing rashes or irritation to their skin.
- Tumble drying can make your baby’s sleep bag shrink over time, so make sure you don't tumble dry it after washing it in cold water and instead lay flat to dry
