    Baby sleeping bags

    Emily seems to move around in her sleep a LOT and is always kicking her bedding off. I was wondering where you purchase those sleeping bags/pj's for kids as at the moment temperatures still require airconditioning at night and she wakes up because she gets too cold.

    I think there are a few different types out there Scarlett.
    I have seen 'all in ones' (where the long arms are a part of the sleeping bag) sold at DJ's, Target, some baby stores and possibly Kmart.

    I use a Grobag for Aidyn, which doesn't have long sleeves, so I can choose what he wears underneath - atm he is still wearing short sleeved suits underneath it, as its not that cold yet.
    I bought mine online, try doing a Google search on Gro-bags, or baby sleeping bags, or something similar?
    If you can't come up with it, feel free to email me and I will send you a link.

    Yep I've got two different kinds, I picked a thinner all in one with the arms in Big W last week and we've got an American version of a gro-bag that Mum ordered online for us. Matilda loves it and because she does the same with wrapping them up around her head it works wonders!

    I have a cotton gro-bag that we used for Jacob during summer, and I also have some polar fleece sleeping bags that I bought from Best & Less. I have also seen them at Big W.

    Scarlett - also try ebay, I have seen lots on there. Some are new if you don't like getting 2nd hand stuff.

    I got one for Matthew from Best and Less and one from Harris Scarfe.

    I bought Liam two last week, both from Target. When I was at Best and Less on Monday I also saw them there.

    I used them last year and was so happy to still see them in Size 1 for Liam, I dont know what I will do if gets to Size 2, I havent seen any yet, Size 2! He doesnt sleep with any covers and wriggles all night too.

    I just got a catelogue in the mail from Bumpto3 from the makers of grobag! Its because I'm in the coles baby club I guess, so there will be heaps of others getting them.
    Its got all the grobags in it, there are a few patterns and weights. They do mail order, so if you want a new one, go to their website and you should be able to get one. They look pretty good - but so they should for about $90!!

    I read through the BumpTo3 Gro-Bag brochure this morning and it took me almost the whole train trip to work (45 mins).

    I am going to get some of these - they are expensive but I think it is worth it for the piece of mind.

    I brought Jessica the sleeping bag with long sleeves from a baby clothes shop for $15 and another for $10 from big w.
    I have found it good, she is waking less in the night and staying warmer. I am putting a bonds suit or similar underneath as well adn she isn't too hot.

    Cheers Michelle

    Went to Big W yesterday and they had all sorts of styles and prices. They even had Bonds ones... didn't realise they had them out.

    I guess because it is becoming so popular
