So many parents spend countless nights wondering if their baby is warm enough. From about 4 months old, your baby might become more active, and move around till she is free from her bedcovers.
Although a baby is better at regulating his/her body temperature at this age, being to cool (or too warm) increases the likelihood of waking and disturbed sleep patterns.
Here are a few things to look out for when choosing a sleeping bag:
- Choose one that is sleeveless and hood-less, and fits around your baby's arms and neck. This is to prevent your baby from slipping down inside it.
- Monitor room temperature and dress your baby accordingly. A helpful room thermometer is included with every ergoPouch product purchase.
- Overheating is one of the risk factors associated with sudden infant death syndrome, so make sure you choose the right TOG rated product for the relevant season. See our What-to-wear-guide for our recommended products and related TOG rating.
By following our ergoPouch TOG ratings and what-to-wear guide, your baby should be warm enough without the need for any blankets.
