    I am another who doesn't think the 2.5 togs and their recommended clothing is enough.

    With DS I now use a 3.5 tog Ergopouch sleeping bag. The size is quite generous (he's currently using a 12-36 month one). They are around the $60 mark and the colour choices are really lame but they seem so much warmer than the grobag ones.

    On really cold nights I have the thermostat on the column heater set so his room doesn't dip to below 18 degrees. Under his sleeping bag I have him wear a singlet, flanelette pyjamas and socks. On really cold nights instead of a singlet I put him in a long sleeve onsie.

    I've tried in the past to put a blanket on him once he's asleep but with all the tossing and turning he does it's really quite pointless. (Makes me feel better though )

    If any one you want to try a sleeping bag, please don't fork out the ridiculous amount of $80,- for a Grobag. Slumbersacs are exactly the same (same materials used, same designs etc), but are so much cheaper.

    If you check out that seller store, you'll find heaps more and postage is cheap as chips. They do combined postage as well. This is where I bought my bags from and DS (who is well over 1m tall), still fits in the 12-36 month size.
    They are so cute and it's a shame that DS wont use them anymore. It hurts having to sell them

    For those looking at buying a sleeping bag, please look at the Slumbersacs first before you spend $80,- on a Grobag.
    Slumbersacs are EXACTLY the same as Grobags but only cost around $30,-. They are made of the same materials and filling, have the same sizing, also come with the room thermometers, have heaps of cute prints, same design, etc.

    This seller has lots more other colours and prints in their ebay store. This is where I bought DS's bags from and postage is cheap as chips. They also offer combined postage. (I also got him a Sophie the Giraffe from this shop for half the Aussie price lol).

    DS (who is 1.09m tall) still fits in the 12-36 months sized bags and is now 24 months old. It's a shame he wont wear them anymore. They are just soooo cute! It hurts having to sell them

    eBay is the best! It's where I buy all my bub's clothes.
    No brand new grobags here! They are so ridiculously expensive!

    I'm a fan of slumbersacs as well. Wash and wear really well. Won't pay for a Growbag anymore!

    Wow thanks I'll have a look at the slumber sack and the ergo pouch as soon as we have the internet up and running again. I started DS off without a blanket last. Ight and he woke twice within 1-1/2 hrs so I popped a blanket on him and he slept well the rest of the night
