how to use a baby sleeping bag


Creating a safe environment for your baby to sleep can be a daunting task; there are so many options & so a lot of different advice on what's right for them. The Lullaby Trust, a charity that promotes safer sleeping for babies, lists the sleeping bag as an essential product in their guide.

Sleeping bags are a safe option as they prevent little ones head from accidentally being covered and the availability of different TOGs means you can choose the right one for the season.

why are they good for babies?

  1. Little ones love to wriggle, even when they’re sleeping. A Sleeping Bag keeps their legs tucked in to avoid them waking up chilly in the night because they’ve kicked off the covers. The fitted neck opening and armholes also ensure your baby won’t slip down inside the bag.

  2. Sleeping bags provide a familiar sleeping environment for your little one. An evening routine can be established as they’ll (hopefully) associate winding down and sleeping with being placed into the sleeping bag, even if it’s for storytime on the sofa or bedroom floor.

  3. Sleeping bags are designed with many useful features such as double-directional zips to make changing easier and clever openings for a pushchair so your little one can snooze undisturbed on the move.

  4. As your little one grows, a sleeping bag remains a good choice as they give them plenty of room to move around & grow. We understand babies grow too fast which is why we designed the MORI Clever Sleeping Bag to fit from 4kgs (this size can be anywhere from newborn to 3 months) up to 2 years. (This means you don’t have to replace the sleeping bag every 6 months how handy!)

what age to use a sleeping bag from

It’s very important you get a sleeping bag that’s the right size for your little one; if it’s too big, there's a chance their head could slip down. Sleeping bags often have a lower weight limit, usually around 8-9lbs (4kgs) so depending on your babies size they can be used from birth.

The perfect temperature all year round

The variety of TOGs available for sleeping bags make them safe for sleeping all year round, but what is a TOG? Put simply, it determines the thickness of the sleeping bag: the higher the rating, the warmer it is. 

Babies can’t regulate their temperature well, so dressing them appropriately underneath a sleeping bag is important so they stay at a safe & comfortable temperature whilst they sleep. Below is our guide on what layers & TOGs should be worn when:
