Just one of the many items I believe all parents should own during the course of their parenting journey, are sleeping bags for children. If it's undisturbed sleep you're after, a sleeping bag can be golden. Nothing breaks up a well-deserved night's rest for everyone, like a child who is lost, tangled or uncovered in their beds.
If your child doesn't wake you due to the discomfort of it themselves, then the worry of whether they're comfortable or not will certainly keep you alert well into the night! It's one of those mothering things.
All of my babies were fitted into little sleeping bags from the moment they were no longer content with swaddling and they have remained a firm favourite at bedtime for many years from there onwards. Not just with myself, but the kids themselves. My kids have even in the past, insisted on being jammed into baggies that no longer fit just out of pure habit.
It's a case of whatever works isn't it!
Grobag are one of the well-known sleeping bag companies you're probably quickly able to recall off the top of your head. We have owned and loved several bags by this brand over time. They're memorable for their quality design and gorgeous nursery prints which help kids settle happily at the day's end.
I have only recently learned that Grobag make sleeping bags for not only babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers - but older kids too!
I have been breathing a sigh of relief at this news, as my toddler will one day grow out of the smaller size that she's currently enjoying and that leaves me with sleepless nights already! (We mums worry about all kinds of senseless things in the middle of the night don't we?!: Things that have happened, things that might happen, even things that probably won't happen...)
Anyhoos, we were sent a Grobag in a size 3-6 years to share with you here, which will be the next size up for my toddler when she's grown out of her current bags. Believe it or not, there's even a Grobag in a size 6-10 years!
Already my youngest sons, (aged 7 and 9) are pestering me for some sleeping bags of their own and I am seriously tempted. Less bedding to wash all-round is an attractive option. (I can average five wash loads a day as it stands.)
I am thrilled that, (when the time comes), my youngest daughter can upgrade to enjoy the comfort and security of this larger bag at night times. She's quite a long way off wearing this one just yet but I am happy about being a step-ahead nonetheless.
When I unpackaged this bag, I was surprised to find that the length of it stretched from my neck to my feet! (Did I mention it's huge?!)
...and roomy and feels very plush and comfortable. I wish it fit me. (Actually, I think it possibly might!)
The Grobag is Australian Safety Standard approved and crafted in 100% cotton fabrics to allow your child to sleep comfortably all night long no matter what the temperature. It is available in a variety of TOGs: From 0.5 for heatwaves to 1, 2.5 (recommended for year-round comfort) and 3.5 TOG for very cold climates.

The Grobag has the thoughtful features throughout you expect, to keep your child safe and comfortable. I like the soft, piped edges that prevent the bag from cutting into your child's arms as they sleep. There's a safety cover over the zipper pull at each end to discourage young kids from fiddling while remaining easy enough to unzip for parents and toilet-training children.
This is the Starlight design which is suitable for both girls and boys. The bag is equipped for travel too and features built-in areas for a 5 point safety harness. If you're going on a long road trip, this could be the best way to keep your young child warm in the car.
