    Default Best sleeping bag for 6month old

    DS is nearly 6 months old and he has slept in his Ergo Cocoon since about 6 weeks old and loves it, however he has nearly outgrown it and it's also getting cooler. Just wanting some recommendations for what to get next. He loves having his arms in but I still want one that has the option of arms in or out like the Ergo Cocoon. Has anyone used the 1 tog ergo?

    I don't know of one for this age with arms in/out option. But I did just want to say that when my first bub was 6 months she was rolling herself over in the cot while swaddled with arms in (using regular wraps). It was a matter of safety that we bought an arms out sleeping bag so she wouldn't get trapped in the face down position.
    We bought the SmartDream 2.5 tog for winter - nice quality sleeping bags by Living Textiles and cheaper than grobags. Can get good 'specials' on their website too! Several times I got them for $20 each by buying 'out of style' stock.
    If bub still wants arms in you might try regular swaddling. I find that the dymples waffle wraps from big w are a good size for 6 months and are fairly houdini proof.

    Ergo Cocoon have a 2.5 tog and 3.5 tog sleeping bag. We use the 2.5, it's great.

    I bought the ergo 1 tog. Did not like it. The zip broke after 2 weeks. It is too thin for the colder weather now. I now use grobag. Bought them when they were on special from bambini pronto. Half price. They may have a sale in June. Subscribe to their newsletter.

    if you look on ebay you can buy slumber sac sleeping bags from UK for about $AUD25 plus about $5 shipping. They are brand new and 2.5 togs for 6-18 months.

    Oh perfect thanks Witwicky. Just had a look at these and they are exactly what I am after as he still loves his arms inside.
