Keeping little ones warm while they snooze goes a long way towards getting a good nights sleep. While layering lots of light, breathable layers ensure they stay snug during the day, baby sleeping bags keep babes covered from their arms all the way down to their wee tippy toes during the night.
The other benefit to baby sleeping bags is that they move with your baby, meaning no more lost blankets and a better chance at a decent sleep for all!
