    Pros - comes with exact guidelines for temperature, clothing to be worn etc
    Cons - very expensive for a sleeping bag!

    Another pro for grobags is that they can't kick them off like they can blankets.

    Also grobags are easy to put on and off as they have a zip on the side ( I have another sleeping bag brand too with front zip and it is much harder to put on).

    They are expensive but you can pick
    2nd hand ones for a reasonable price on eBay. up

    I can't afford grobag so got a cheaper brand from UK and I'm very happy with it.

    Sleepy wings seem like the perfect solution for me to use with a sleeping bag since DS still has strong startle reflex, unfortunately he's a side sleeper and doesn't like it. I have to stick to muslin wraps for now.

    Thickness of garment. So 0.5 is good for summer. 2.5 is for winter and 1 is in between

    I love the bubbaroo Joey bags they come in different togs from 0.35 for summer and up to 2.5 for winter. My 1 year old is still in one. When she was younger I would swaddle over the sleeping bag until she could roll
