    Hi Beany ( :D )

    I love gro bags, think they are fab. Seren has 2, and find them really useful. Seren tends to sleep with me after she has first woken up and I was finding that putting covers on her in the bed was not too good as she would wiggle and lose them and wake up cold. Now with a grobag she sleeps better, and also goes to sleep easier as she now associates them with going to bed. I also found that when she has slept away from home she settled better in her grobag.

    Here she is in hers

    you can't really see her grobag in this one but I wanted to show off her doing her very best Fred Elliott impression

    Hiya beany!

    Brody has one every night I would not be without it!

    If you like you can borrow one to see how you get on with it? (I've got 4!)

    I swear by Grobags, they are definately one of our best buys, so convenient! We got ours from Asda Home, really reasonable prices £10 and £12 and one of them is Winnie the Pooh x

    Hey Beany :)

    Ella has a few aswell, she's been in them since she was a few days old. Now she really associates being put in her Grobag with bed which is fab :D

    Beanie - Ella has that flowery one in a 1 tog. She's been sleeping in it the past couple of nights with a vest and sleepsuit. I had to wake her up this morning at 8.30!! Obviously nice and comfy!

    I would definately recommend the gro bag. Jess is 21 months and has a huge big one now, nearly goes the length of the cot.

    depends on how hot the room is if i think its hot then just a vest if its cold then a rumper suit, but i still use a lil blanket aswell dont no why i just never feel she looks snug unless there is a blanket over her, but if she kicks it off then its not a problem :)

    matalan do lovely ones only £7

    I dress Jess in a vest, long sleeve sleepsuit then her gro bag. Just before I go to bed about 11 I then put a fleecy cover over her. Probably will start leaving the cover out though soon, its not as cold as it as.

    Im glad he likes it, they are well worth the money.

    Hi everyone,

    I also bought a few grobags, 4 or 5, but after 2 weeks old, Maheen would not go to sleep, she only manages to settle down now if she is swaddled (ie. her arms and hands can't move); With the grobags, she could move too much and thus not falling asleep! :cry:
    It's a shame, coz grobags are really good, I hope she will be fine with them at some point,...I find babies so cute in them, and it's so much easier to use than blankets!!
    When did you all started using them with your little ones? Do you think it's too late now for Maheen?
    Mel xx
