1. What is a baby sleeping bag?

A baby sleeping bag is a "wearable blanket" designed for babies to be used instead of loose blankets. Baby sleeping bags have a neck opening and armholes and help your baby maintain a comfortable  sleeping temperature throughout the night without the risk of getting tangled in the blanket or be wriggled under. Compared to a blanket, a right sized sleeping bag cannot be kicked off when your baby is dreaming and therefore always hold a cozy sleeping temperature.


2. Why a sleeping bag instead of loose blankets?  

Unlike traditional blankets  right sized baby sleeping bags cannot be kicked off while your baby is dreaming and keep a constant and comfortable sleeping temperature throughout the night. Traditional sheets or blankets carry the risk that your baby gets tangled up or they cover baby's face. This is why baby sleeping bags are recommended as safer solution when bedding your baby.

3. Which size sleeping bag should I choose for my baby?

4. What to dress baby in when using the sleeping bag? 
 
Your soft and cozy organic baby sleeping bag comes in 2 versions:  all-year and light summer.
What to dress baby in depends on your Smiling Monkey baby sleeping bag and the temperature of your baby's bedroom (in the same way you adjust your nightwear and duvets). As a guide, please refer to the table below. Please remember, though, that every baby is unique and, just as with blankets and sheets, you will soon discover what your baby is most comfortable wearing. Placing your fingers on your baby’s neck is the best indicator of whether they are too hot/too cold/just right as babies’ hands often feel cool.
