How many sleeping bags do I need for my baby?
We recommend you invest in 2 sleeping bags for your baby or toddler. This is particularly important in winter, when washing takes longer to dry and also you really need your sleeping bag to keep your baby warm.
What is the difference between a sleeping bag and sleep sack?
Nothing! They both refer to a warm, snuggly bag to keep your baby safe and warm for sleeps. We tend to use the term 'baby sleeping bag', as this is what our sleeping bags are labelled as. The term 'sleep sack' is sometimes used by European bag manufacturers or some cheaper brands.

What size should I buy?
The sizes are based on average sized babies, so do consider if your baby is extra big or small for her age. We recommend that you buy the right size for your baby now, rather than worrying about it lasting for next season. It's important that your bag fits well, so there is no danger of baby slipping into a bag that is miles too big. You can also consult the manufacturer's measurements before purchasing to ensure the bag will be just the right fit.
If you're not sure about the size, carefully open your purchased bag, keep the packaging and try it on. We are happy to exchange the size provided the bag is returned to us in original, saleable condition, with all packaging intact.
What is a TOG rating?
The tog rating indicates how warm the bag is and relates to how many blankets the bag is equivalent to. The higher the tog, the warmer the bag. For example, a 2.0 tog bag is equivalent to just over 2 blankets.
Merino bags are not tog rated because they have naturally temperature regulating properties.
