    Does any one know anything about the sleep bags/grobags??
    Ive heard that they are really good and that you are only supposed to use them on their own with out covers?
    Im just wondering if any of you have used them and what are the pro's and cons?
    Do you use bumpers in a crib??
    baby bedding has me confused LOL!!
    Any other facts or ideas much apprecated!

    I use them and i have to say they are brilliant!!! i woke up one night and jamie had the blanket on top of his head :shock: so ive used one ever since! (i tucked the blanket in tight too!!!) they realy are brilliant,you dont need any other covers as they keep baby as a constant temperature and also stops them kicking the covers off and getting cold in the night!
    Bumpers are not recommended (and duvets) for babies under 12 months as they are a supposed risk of suffocation!

    We've heard great things about gro-bags as well.

    Just need to get off my back-side and finish my shopping now.

    So much to buy and so little time! :D

    Well I'm presuming you use a long-sleeved sleepsuit and if the room is the right temp it should be OK?

    I am going to be a nervous bloody wreck! :D

    yes they are the right things layla, but they are cheaper in asda, i think they are £10 or £12 for the same thing.

    to be honest if the `room is cold, like when i wake up for the 4am feed(!) i'll put a thin blanket over him too, to keep his arms warm.

    it's better than the alternative of them kicking ALL the blankets off, or over their heads.

    i have seen different togs on ebay. ie summer and winter ones. but the gro bags in asda and tesco just seem to be one type. i am definitely going to buy a couple as joshua was forever kicking his cover off (still does now).

    I've got a couple of these, one from TK Maxx and one from Matalan. The Matalan one was a right bargain at £8 and is really snug feeling.

    The company that invented the real Grobag is just down the road from DH's work www.bumpto3.com they do a great looking room thermometer egg thingy aswell.

    I absolutely love the grobags. I particularly like the actual grobags from grobag.com because they have excellant design features. I have used them since birth and 18 months later im still loving them. I usually buy a new one and one off ebay. Im not flush for cash but consider my £25 well spent on a new gro bag. As for the arm, i too wondered about that at first but i wear long sleeved bodysuits and its never been a prob.

    Buy with confidence (no I dont work for grobag).

    Oh, before I actually had my baby I thought they were the most stupid lookin things.
