What are baby sleeping bags?

A baby sleeping bag, as the name suggests, is like a sleeping bag but for babies! But what makes them different is that a baby sleeping bag is used solely indoors rather than for outdoor use - like with camping sleeping bags, for instance.

Baby sleeping bags usually have arm holes or sleeves, depending on the design and manufacturer and are used in place of sheets and bedding. The reason is to provide sufficient warmth and comfort to babies and allow babies to move around freely without the restriction of conventional bedding options. Baby sleeping bags are generally available in both summer and winter options.

Merino & Me Summer Baby Sleeping Bags

No matter where you live, our Woolbabe range of sleeping bags has baby covered. We use a blend of Merino wool and cotton, perfect for warmer weather conditions. If you live in a warmer or humid climate, change the clothing inside the bag to suit.

Woolbabe baby sleeping bags feature:

  • A 30% Australian Merino and 70% organic cotton blend
  • Lightweight feel and design
  • A travel slot on the rear of the bag and a two-way zip - allowing them to be used in prams with a five-point harness
  • Large 95cm design - suitable for babies through to toddlers
  • Underarm dome design to vary in size depending on the size of the baby

Comfort and carefully designed

Not only are our baby sleeping bags comfortable and soft, but they are also perfect for babies with sensitive skin and other conditions like eczema. The thin layer of cotton and wool is as soft as a t-shirt and won’t leave baby feeling uncomfortable or scratchy.

The combination of Merino wool and cotton offers the best of both worlds, providing a light cover for your child in warmer conditions. In addition, Merino wool responds well to changes in body temperature, keeping baby at a constant temp, encouraging everyone to have a good night's sleep. There are also no sheets or blankets to kick off while in a baby sleeping bag, so your baby won't wake up cold.

Our Woolbabe sleeping bags are easy to take on and off. Our front-zip design means that they are less escape-proof and prone to babies and toddlers learning how to pop out. We love the ease of a front-zip bag!  They are also far better for toddlers, as they are less escape-proof compared to other shoulder dome zip designs.

Benefits of a Woolbabe Baby Summer Sleeping Bag

The Merino & Me range of Woolbabe summer baby sleeping bags is designed to have many benefits to make sure your baby is comfortable, including:

  • Regulating temperature so that extra bedding isn’t required and the chance of baby waking up from being too cold can be minimised*.
  • A baby sleeping bag creates a safer sleeping environment for baby to sleep, reducing the suffocation hazards of extra bedding.
  • The bedtime routine can begin in the sleeping bag, before placing them in their cot, making settling easier.
  • A baby sleeping bag develops a positive sleep association, meaning that when baby is in their sleeping bag, it develops a mental cue that it’s time to sleep.
  • A sleeping bag is a sleep environment that is safe and familiar, so when taking your baby's sleeping bag on holiday or when visiting family and friends, your baby sleeps and has their usual sleep cue.

*Babies may still wake if there are issues with sleep associations or self-settling.

How to take care of a Woolbabe Baby Sleeping Bag

Woolbabe sleeping bags can be gently machine washed with a liquid wool wash.  You can also low-tumble dry your bag but to avoid potential shrinkage, drying in the sun is the best way to make sure this doesn’t happen.
