When didu start using a sleeping bag? I originally swaddled my LO but she doeant like it now so we have just been wrapping her lower body. I want to transfer her to a cot soon, so was thinking about using her sleeping bag but wondered if she would sleep ok as she is using being wrapped. Any advice?
the general rule of thumb is if they're over 8lb 13oz and going off your siggy your lo is then it'll be fine! They are the best invention ever, if you night feed then they are brill because they don't get cold, and at last feed you can put it on before they fall asleep and just put them in their cot straight away.
Sure she will be fine, as her legs are sort of swaddled in them anyway - get her in her cot too! H started sleeping through at 7 weeks because we did! x
I didnt put my LO in a sleeping bag till he was 4 months. I was worried about them for some silly reason, now i wish i had put him in them as soon as he was over the minimum weight for them. He sleeps much better, i think he was making himself cold kicking his blanket off all the time, plus i dont have to worry about finding him with a blanket that he's pulled over his head either!
We went from full swaddle, to swaddling with arms out, to the sleeping bag. This took a little over four months for us (since she loved to be swaddled), but I absolutely love the sleeping bags. The one we have now zips from the top down so that you can change diapers without having to remove the sleeping bag completely. The sleeping bag gives you so much peace of mind since you know they can't get it over their heads.
Had to respond to this as I have just been sitting at the computer for the past hour waiting for my little one to wake up...because he is using a sleeping bag for the first time!! He has been wrapped/swaddled since birth for 8 months (yes I know waaaaaaaay too long!!). I thought I would give today a go because he was very tired after his swimming lesson....Fingers crossed tonight goes as well!!
