Baby Bundles Merino Sleeping Bag

Baby Bundles Merino Sleeping BagThere are lots of things to think twice about when you have a new baby.  I have found the more choices I could make that I've felt safe about (and didn't have to doubt while waking and feeding at 12am....2am...4am...!), the easier those early days and months are.  One of those choices was dressing – and particularly sleeping – my baby boy in merino.  It's breathability, superior insulating qualities and washability were always stacks ahead of any other fabric I've dressed him in, and if I could afford to I would dress him in merino more often than not!

The Baby Bundles sleeping bag is scrumptious.  With both beauty and practicality in its favour, it's got a lot going for it.  

In terms of beauty, the colour palette is lovely.  I have tried out the porcini – a cute mushroom colour perfect for both boys and girls.  It also comes in light blue and raspberry, both of which look delicious in the pictures.  The top panel of each colour is stripy and the two-tone fabric makes the bag look extra luxurious. 

In terms of practicality, you can use the winter-weight sleeping bag for rooms ranging in temperatures from 14-22 degrees.  This is pretty flexible, and makes the bag useful across many seasons (especially when you're raising kids in Dunedin!)  For cooler rooms, an extra layer of merino close to baby's skin is recommended.  The Baby Bundles sleeping bag fabric is made up of two layers of super fine NZ merino comprising 430 grams in total.  It is so very soft, and being 100% merino the sleeping bag washes and wears really well without the hassles of other types of wool.

For night-time nappy changes or checks, you can use the side zip for easy access. The zip's anchor point is at the bottom of the bag, making it fast to find in dim light and meaning baby stays as warm as possible.   This zip continues right up to under an arm, and one shoulder panel of the sleeping bag features two domes so slipping this bag on an already sleeping child is easy.  That's a good thing, as there isn't a middle opening to make this bag useable in a car seat or capsule - so if baby falls asleep in the car you would need to put the sleeping bag on after the fact.

I like the fact that Baby Bundles make their products right here in New Zealand.  The bag is spacious enough to be practical and yet fitting enough to be safe and attractive.    Marketed as useable from 3-24 months, the bag can still zip up over my 2 ½ year old who likes to pretend he's still a baby at times!  So it offers plenty in terms of flexibility and longevity of use.  It definitely feels like a safe night-time option for our family, and retailing at $160-179 makes it one of the more affordable quality sleeping bags on the market.
