Research has shown that when using conventional bedding, babies and toddlers tend to get too hot in the warm, summer months. Keeping your little one cool and comfortable while they sleep is essential to reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Slumbersac's award-winning sleeping bags ensure your little one remains at a constant temperature, eliminating the risk of them overheating.
In very hot temperatures we recommend using our Muslin and Bamboo Muslin Sleeping Bags. Made of a 100% natural material, they are extremely light and naturally breathable, allowing moisture to flow out of the sleeping bag as the air circulates, helping to keep your baby cool and comfortable. And if they are more comfortable, they are less likely to wake in the night!
Our summer baby sleeping bags are available in two togs:
Lightweight / approx. 0.5 tog. These bags are completely unpadded and suitable for use in hot summer months and in room temperatures above 24 degrees. Perfect for summer holidays.
Summer weight / approx. 1.0 tog. These bags are slightly padded and suitable for use in warmer rooms with temperatures between 19 and 24 degrees.
For more detailed information on which tog you should choose for your baby, please visit our Tog page.
Slumbersac summer sleeping bags are available in various sizes, from newborn up until 10 years old. When choosing the right size sleeping bag for your child, it is important to remember that they should be able to kick and wriggle freely in the sleeping bag. Ideally babies feet should be positioned at 3/4 of the sleeping bag, leaving the bottom quarter of the sleeping bag 'empty'.
Please refer to our Sleeping Bag Size Guide Chart below for guidance on which baby sleeping bag you should buy, depending on your child's length and weight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, or find more information on our dedicated Size Guide page.
Here are just a few of the reasons why you should buy a Slumbersac Summer Sleeping Bag.
