When you become a mum or dad the sleeping bag becomes an essential item for your baby. It will be your best ally by stopping your baby from moving too much whilst asleep, from becoming uncovered or getting cold. Making sure that a baby can sleep peacefully, be protected and maintain a perfect body temperature are all issues that many parents are concerned about, as are the security and comfort of a newborn who has just been welcomed into the home. Using a sleeping bag will help avoid the possible dangers that a sheet and blanket can present, assuring that both you and your baby will be able to sleep more peacefully.
Do you want to sew a sleeping bag for your baby?
If the idea of making a sleeping bag for you baby instantly puts a smile on your face, you are in the perfect place. Before anything, we are going to pont out a few things to keep in mind before starting.
Sleeping bags for babies can be used for both summer and winter, helping to keep the baby warm in winter and cool during the summer. You should always use natural fibres to make them to avoid causing any allergic reactions. Our 100% cotton poplin and 95% cotton jersey fabrics are especially recommended for making soft garments and accessories for babies because they let the delicate baby skins breath.
Another advantage is of using natural materials is that they can be easily washed in a washing machine*.
*Always when a machine washable natural filling has been used in the sleeping bag.
