Gro Bag's! Definitely one of the first products I'd heard of when I was pregnant first time around. Seems everyone with a young child uses them!
I can totally see why, we've been a fan for ages so I was really flattered when I was asked to work with The Gro Company.
We chatted by email about what kind of Gro Bag we would need, and they are a friendly bunch. They didn't even mind when I said we don't do 'girly'. Thing is there's lots of different Baby sleepig bags options, there are different, togs, patterns, sizes, you can even get travel ones with special openings not to mention they go from newborn to age 10!!!! This is information that my big two are very excited about and they claim we 'need' to get them each a big grobag for holidays, best get daddy talked round soon then!
I love the print on our bag, it's so funky and I love that it's not putrid pastels (a very personal dislike).
Termite has gotten to the point where she likes to move around and wiggle her legs in her sleep so it's important to have lots of room in the bottom of the bag and this is just perfect, it fits snugly around her top so she's not going to slip down and get all bunched up and uncomfortable, but the bottom is wide enough that her evening river dance doesn't leave her tangled up....
The bag also has a double zip so you can open it at any point from top to bottom , making nappy changes in the middle of the night a fuss free affair. It also has a wee 'hatch' so that you can use it while traveling and still ensure little one is securely fastened.
There's been no shrinkage in the wash and it dries quickly too which is great for a quick turnaround. priced at £30.99 it in the mid range of their prices, and I think very reasonable, there's plenty of wear in these so they should last a long time.
They don't just make sleeping bags either check out some of the other brilliant products. I loved the swaddle when the babies were babies and they washed so well that all thereof them have used the same ones. We also found the bedding a great help in transitioning to toddler bed and we will be getting this cute alien one for Termite this summer but our very next purchase will be the award winning gro-light. We've never needed one of these as my babies have always slept in darkness and I've gotten quite adept at happy changing in the dark, but since the start of school my boy has developed a fear of the dark and wants to sleep with his light on! I know this will pass but in the mean time I'd really like to try one of these as a compromise to having a bright light shining on him.
