Baby sleeping bags are a must-have when your baby is ready to transition from the swaddle. The right baby sleeping bag will keep your little one cosy and warm while giving them enough wiggle room to move freely without fear of kicking off the covers in the night.
If you're looking for a way to keep your baby warm during those cold winter nights, consider the benefits of a baby sleeping bag. A baby sleeping bag is different from a sleep sack. Whereas a sleep sack typically just covers your baby's body, a baby sleeping bag can cover your baby's body and arms.
Sleeping bags are an excellent alternative to heavy blankets and can provide the warmth your baby needs for a good night's sleep. They are made of soft, breathable fabric that’s safe for babies to sleep in and are designed for use all year long, so you can keep your baby warm no matter what weather you're experiencing. While baby sleeping bags aren't your only option when it comes to creating a comfortable, safe environment for your baby to sleep in, they are an excellent choice that will offer several benefits if chosen over other options.
For decades, sleeping bags have been a popular, safe sleep option in Australia and other countries around the world. Studies have shown that babies who sleep in sleeping bags may have a lower risk of SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The advantage of using this type of sleepwear is that you don't have to worry about loose blankets in the cot which could potentially cause a hazard. You can simply zip your baby into their sleeping bag before putting them down to sleep – no fiddly sheets or blankets required.
Today, there are many different types of sleeping bags on the market and sometimes it is difficult for new parents to decide which one is best for their baby. Our sleeping bags come in many different styles, colours and patterns so you will be able to find one that matches the theme of your child's room. Some come with three-way zippers for easy diaper changing and others have a zip-off bottom that allows you to adjust as your baby grows. Some even have built-in sleeves. Australia’s market leading and award-winning brand ergoPouch sleeping bags are made from skin-friendly, natural fibres, including the fillings. All are machine washable and easy to care for.
At Peekaboo Baby, you can browse a range of sleeping bags for your little one. Our ergoPouch organic sleepsuit is a high quality option for babies and toddlers. They are available from newborn up to 4 years old and come in organic cotton and bamboo as well as a range of styles, prints and colours.
The award-winning Sleep Suit Bag by ergoPouch converts from a baby or toddler sleeping bag to a sleep suit with legs. The straps of the sleepsuit become leg holes, so it's also perfect for little wrigglers and movers who like more leg freedom in sleep, and toddlers transitioning from cot to bed. Made from 100% certified organic cotton which is breathable and helps your child maintain a regulated temperature whilst sleeping, and prevents overheating.

What are baby sleeping bags for?
Infant sleeping bags are essentially the same as a wearable blanket. This is a blanket that your child will stay safe and warm in while they sleep, without feeling restricted as they naturally move around while sleeping. Many parents use them as a sleeping bag to keep their little ones warm and secure.

Can you put ergoPouch in the dryer?
To care for your ergoPouch and ensure it is kept in the best possible condition, we recommend washing it prior to the first use and then routinely as needed. Yes you can use the dryer, but only on a very low heat. These products are made with super soft fabrics that need to be dried on a low heat in order to keep their beautiful, soft feel. All ergoPouch products are designed to be tumble dried on a cool/gentle cycle. We recommend that you follow the care instructions on each product label.
Where is ergoPouch made?
ergoPouch products are designed in Melbourne, Australia and manufactured at an ethical factory in China. The factory has been inspected and approved by a third party ethical team. This ensures that the workers have safe working conditions, are paid fair wages and are not subject to forced or child labour.
Can a newborn baby sleep in a sleeping bag?
If you're expecting a baby, you're likely to have many questions about your newborn's sleep. One of the most common questions is whether or not it's safe for a baby to sleep in a sleeping bag.
In short, yes, it is safe for a newborn baby to sleep in a sleeping bag, provided the bag is the right size and your baby cannot wriggle down inside it. Make sure there is no gap between the top of the bag and your baby's chest so that it can't slip over their face. The safest choice is to buy a sleeping bag designed specifically for babies. These are designed to be safe, with no hood or strings. Our ergococoon swaddle has a simple zip-up design that will keep your baby snug. It's quick and hassle-free, perfect for those nighttime feeds in the dark. With its ergonomically shaped bell design, you can be sure that your baby's healthy hip development is protected. When your little one is done with swaddling, this versatile blanket can transition into a sleeping bag with snap buttons in the armholes.
What does 0.2 TOG mean?
We use the TOG (Thermal Overall Grade) rating scale to measure how much heat is trapped in a sleep bag. The higher the number, the warmer the bag. We recommend lighter bags for spring and summer, and heavier bags for autumn and winter. Our 0.2 TOG baby sleeping bag is made from 100% natural cotton and designed specifically for use in warmer months.
Are ergoPouch safe?
All ergoPouch products are subjected to rigorous safety tests prior to retail sale, ensuring they exceed national standards for safety and meet Australian legislation. Products are also independently verified as being non-toxic, using natural dyes in the fabrics and organic cotton so each sleep suit is free from any harmful chemicals. As with any product, we ask you to ensure the sleeping bag you choose is the right fit for your baby. Each design features a size chart and usage instructions to help you.
