View Full Version : Grobags - Any comments?
Hope this finds you all well.
I was wondering if any of you have used a grobag baby sleeping bag? They are expensive (about $80) but from what I have read about them seem quite good.
I have seen some sleeping bags in Target and K-mart for about $20 but they have sleeves and I am worried about bub over-heating.
Your comments would be appreciated. :D
I can highly recommend the Grobag, I've used the winter ones for my daughter from when she was about 2.5 months old. She would kick off the sheet and blanket and I was worried that she would get cold during the night.
You still put their pyjama's on and then the Grobag over it. The prestuds at the shoulders are great too, no fiddly buttons and it zips around.
If you are interested, I have two that I am planning to advertise in the weekend shopper. They are winter grobags - one is Newborn size and has little ducks on the chest with a yellow and white stripe on the length. The second one is up to six months and is mauve with a lovely heart, butterfly embroidery on the chest and then little bunny rabbits and butterflys on the length of the grobag. Both are in excellent condition and there are no faults with either of them. They are for winter use and are quilted.
I guess it depends on whether you have a son or daughter.
I am happy to sell both of them (2) for $80 plus postage.
If you (or anyone else is interested), you can PM me if you like at firstname.lastname@example.org (I live in east brisbane)
Hi. Did you find that baby had trouble getting to sleep without his arms being swaddled? My baby seems to settle much quicker if he is swaddled really tightly, but that might only be because he's young (six weeks).
I've heard the grobags are really good though.
Thanks for your comments and offer for pruchase. Unfortunately, my baby would need a bigger size of grobag. I don't think you will have any trouble selling them for that price.
our bub gets so restless at night there is no point even trying to put on blankets so we used one which we got from best n less, it was great, if you are worried about the sleeves cut them off but we found when the weather was still warm we just had her in a singlet and the sleeping bag. if you look around you might be lucky to find a cotten one. its starting to get colder now so we have been searching for bigger ones now our bub is 1, we found big w has a reasonable range we bought one for i think it was $12 they also the 2 peice pj's that button on to each other. just a thought. we were looking at grobags but we cant afford them but if you look there are quite alot of cheap alternatives
good luck :D
I bought 2 grobags 1 is quilted for Melbourne winter nights, the other is towelling on the inside for those "in between" nights. DD started sleeping in them when she was about 5-6 mths old and too big/active to swaddle. She loved the ritual of the sleeping bag, and it worked well when she had to stay in hospital for a week as it was a little piece of home.
I bought the 6-18mth size and they did her for over a year so even though a bit $$$ it was worth it in the longrun. She is now 2 and in a "big" bed and cannot stay under the covers so I am considering what to do now!
On the downside - as she moved around in her sleep the bag used to get a bit twisted up around her legs and torso, and a couple of times her arms got stuck inside the bag!
I highly recommend grobags. We swaddled bub until six months and have used grobags eversince. You can even buy a teddy grobag for bub to put their teddy in once they are older. We also travel a lot and found it was nice to have the same routine for bed no matter where we were. Grobag on signals sleeptime.
I use a sleeping bag from Snugtime - they have a website - they are sleeveless like a grobag but full price are $29 - I was lucky to get mine on sale for only $10. They come in 0-6months & 6-18months & I have found them brilliant for my little one that continually kicks off anything covering her legs.
Just wanted to say 'thanks' for your comments re the grobags. Much appreciated.
