Here are OUR MOST frequently asked questions:
Why are baby sleeping bags a better alternative to sheets and blankets?
Sleep sacks allow babies to maintain a constant temperature throughout the night, without the risk of kicking off covers or getting tangled up in bedding, while still allowing them to move around freely during the night. They are far lower maintenance for parents than conventional bedding and can provide security and familiarity when babies are staying away from home or moving from a Moses basket into a cot.
What ages are Slumbersac baby sleeping bags designed for?
Our baby sleep sacks come in six sizes and cater for newborn babies up to ten-year-old children.
Why do some bags have side zips and others centre zips?
Some designs do have centre zips on all sizes; however most of the smaller sizes have side zips which are designed to make for easy access when changing your baby during the night. As babies become bigger and stronger there is a risk they can force open the ‘snaps' at the shoulder so we use centre zips without snaps on size 3. All sizes of travel bags have a two-way centre zip to facilitate harness fixing.
Could my baby become too hot?
As long as the room is a safe temperature and the right tog sleeping bag is used, there is no danger of children overheating. Never use any clothing with hoods and avoid using additional sheets or blankets with sleep sacks. The only additional bedding required is a cot sheet. For more safety information click here.
Do bags wash and dry easily?
Yes, due to the quick-dry light weight polyester fleece filling they wash easy and dry quickly. All our baby sleep bags can be machine washed at 40 degrees and tumble-dried on a low heat. We recommend you wash our sleeping bags inside out and keep zips closed for washing and drying. Remember, too, that for your convenience it is advisable to have at least two bags, particularly handy when it comes to unplanned night-time changes!
Are the long sleeves on the winter sleeping bags detachable?
The long sleeves on our long sleeve sleeping bags are NOT detachable. These sleeping bags are suitable for wearing while in a buggy or sleeping at very cold room temperatures. Alternatively we offer our Simply 3.5 tog winter sleeping bags without sleeves which can be combined with our new sleeping bag sleeves which fit any Slumbersac.
