This is a guide only. It is important not to overheat your baby. The
best guide is to consider whether the heating, bedding and clothing
would add up to a comfortable sleeping temperature for you. The ideal
room temperature for children is 16 to 20 degrees Celsius, with 18
degrees considered perfect! Please consult your medical professional for
further advice if required.
Should I buy a front or side zip woolbabe?
considerations are how wriggly your child is and how often you will use
the travel slot. If your child is very wriggly or likes to stand up in
the cot we recommend a front-zip bag, as they may otherwise pop open the
shoulder domes on a side zip bag.
The travel slot in the
front-zip bag is only in the back, which means that little feet are
unlikely to go through the slot which can happen with a side-zip bag.
However if you use the travel slot often you may prefer the slot in the
front and back.
One other advantage of the side-zip woolbabe is that it opens out completely flat. This can make nappy changing a bit easier.
