As any parent knows, ensuring your little one gets the best night’s sleep possible is important for all the family and a baby sleeping bag is an essential piece of kit

aby sleeping bags ensure that your little one stays cosy and warm all night, with no chance of throwing off blankets and waking up cold. They also provide parents with peace of mind as there is no chance of baby getting tangled up in loose bedding.

When looking for the best baby sleeping bag for your tot, it’s important to think about what time of year you will be using it. This is so that you can choose the correct tog rating. Togs (the thickness of the sleeping bags) generally range from 0.5 tog up to 2.5 tog. The higher the tog, the warmer the sleeping bag. So in spring and summer you will only need a thin bag, but in autumn and winter you may want to swap to a warmer one.

Some sleeping bags also have the option to adapt between different togs, which is perfect if you don’t want to have to keep buying new ones.

Another thing to consider is whether you plan to travel in the car or put your baby in a pram while wearing a sleeping bag. If that is the case, you should look for a sleeping bag which is travel friendly and has holes in it for the safety straps to thread through. It is not advised to travel with babies in sleeping bags without this.

Other useful features to look out for are two-way zippers, which make night-time nappy changes less of a disturbance. Also pay attention to whether there are adjustable poppers under the arms to make the arm holes the correct size for baby and extendable bags, which grow with your little ones over time.

There are so many beautiful baby sleeping bags available and they make a perfect baby shower or ‘welcome to the world’ gift for new parents.

To help you decide which one to buy, whether you’re looking for a good all-rounder for your imminent arrival or a cute little gift for an upcoming baby shower, we’ve searched around to find 11 of the best baby sleeping bags.
