Top 10 Best Baby Sleeping Bags In Australia 2022

What are the benefits of a sleeping bag or sleep suit?

They’re a safe sleep association

All parents know that sleep equals sanity, so it’s no shock that we’re permanently on the hunt for anything that can help your baby catch a few extra zzz’s. A dummy can fall out in the middle of the night, and soft toys aren’t considered a safe comforter for newborn bubs, so the need for something to serve as a safe sleep association is key!

A baby sleeping bag, also known as a sleep suit is an invaluable tool for helping your baby get a safe, warm, comfortable night’s rest. Putting this on your little one night after night starts to represent a time to go to sleep, as well as providing adequate warmth and comfort throughout the night.

They help to control startle reflex

The other benefit of a sleeping bag for newborns is that your baby’s arms are contained, so they won’t wake themselves during the night with the startle reflex that all newborns have. It will also prevent babies from scratching themselves with their fingernails during the night.

What you should look for when buying a baby sleep suit:

- A TOG system

When it comes to choosing a baby sleeping bag, it’s important to take into account the climate you live in and the temperature of your baby’s room. Sleeping bags and suits come in different TOG strengths, TOG stands for (Thermal Overall Grade) which relates to how much warmth the sleep suit provides. TOG is a unit of measurement used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product, the higher the number, the warmer the suit. If you’re wanting to put your baby in a sleeping bag in the summer months, you should pick up a 1.0 strength sleep suit. For use in the coldest winter months, a 3.5 strength TOG suit might be best. It’s always good to check the temperatures recommended for each TOG strength before you buy the suit. Read more below...

- Safety

It’s always best to buy from reputable brands when buying a sleeping bag or sleep suit, as they’re made from durable, breathable materials. You should never let your baby go to sleep in anything with a hood or with cords or ribbons hanging off it - as this can be a choking hazard.

You should also always look for a sleep suit that’s hip-healthy, with an extra wide shape and garment construction. Grip pads on the feet are always a great idea for babies who are walking.

- Comfort

The most important factor when it comes to comfort is the softness of the material used. Many sleeping bags and suits are made from a soft cotton fleece fabric, which is both breathable and provides a thermal grade of warmth. You also want to ensure the zipper is covered with fabric at the top of the suit near the neck, so that the zipper doesn’t dig into your baby’s skin as they sleep.

- Functionality

Overall functionality is important when it comes to finding the perfect sleep suit, as you need to be able to reach dirty nappies with a two-way zipper, and go on baby quickly and easily at bedtime.

Baby sleeping bag features to consider:

- Transitional ‘wings’

Many sleeping bags offer a transitional system with wings, where you can begin to transition your baby’s arms from swaddled in, to out in stages, one arm at a time. This will allow your baby to become used to the feeling of having their arms out - slowly - andas a result, begin to wake themselves up less.

- A two-way zipper

A two-way zipper is a great functionality in sleeping bags and suits, as it allows access to change a dirty nappy without having to remove the whole suit from baby.

- Washable fabric

A cotton, machine-washable suit is ideal for dealing with vomiting or reflux babies, because you can wash as much as you need without worrying about your sleep suit losing its shape or softness.

- Longevity

A sleeping bag that converts to a sleep suit is a genius way to get bang for your buck, as it has the ability to grow with your baby. Once your baby is walking you will need to put your child to sleep in a sleep suit with legs in case they stand up in their cot and trip over.

Here are the 10 best baby sleeping bags of 2022:

2. Billie + Bobbie The All Season Merino Wool Baby Sleeping Bag, RRP $219.95

If you’re looking for a safe and comfortable sleeping option for your baby, you can’t look past the unique features of merino wool, as found in the incredible Billie + Bobbie All Season Merino Wool Sleeping Bag.

What makes the Billie + Bobbie All Season Merino Wool Baby Sleeping Bag different?

Did you know that Merino Wool features a myriad of benefits related to sleep and comfort? In fact, Research from the International Wool Textile Organisation has found that babies that slept with merino wool actually had a deeper, more restful sleep. Researcher Dr Paul Swan, from the University of Sydney, said: "Wool regulates your body temperature far better, keeping you in what is known as 'the thermal comfort zone'. You therefore not only fall asleep quicker, sleep longer, but also have deeper, better quality sleep."

Yep, you read right - more sleep.

Why try Billie + Bobbie All Season Merino Wool Baby Sleeping Bag?

The best thing about the Billie + Bobbie All Season Merino Wool Baby Sleeping Bag is the fact that it grows with your baby and that it is suitable for use across all seasons, compared to a regular TOG rated sleeping bag, of which you need to buy many, as they have to be switched around across the year to coincide with the temperature.

Recommended for babies with eczema:

If you have a baby with sensitive skin, you’ll be pleased to know that Merino Wool is actually recommended for sensitive skin & eczema thanks to its ability to manage moisture levels next to the skin.

Can help to regulate temperature:

Similarly, Merino Wool can help to regulate temperature - a skill in which babies can’t achieve on their own, meaning that the natural properties of Merino Wool allow it to create a micro environment around the skin keeping your baby warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot, maintaining the ideal temperature. 

The wool won’t feel ‘prickly’:

Merino Wool is luxuriously soft, light and non-itchy which makes it the ideal fibre to wear against the skin.  Billie + Bobbie Sleeping Bags are made using 18.5 micron Superfine Merino Wool. ‘Superfine’ refers to the diameter of the fibre.  Because the Merino Wool is so fine it feels soft against the skin, unlike traditional wool which can feel itchy or prickly.

Better still, all Billie + Bobbie Merino Wool Sleeping Bags are made right here in Australia, so you can be sure that you’re receiving a quality product every time.

Real customer review:

[Review of Billie + Bobbie The All Season Merino Wool Baby Sleeping Bag] “We are really happy with our Billie & Bobbie sleeping bag!

Would absolutely purchase again or gift to a friend!” - Courtney, 1 October 2021

Real review: Melissa B, lovetodream.com.au

“I truly feel confident laying our baby girl down to sleep every night knowing she’s safes and secure. We’ve been using the Love to Dream swaddle for a couple of months now (baby girl is 5 months) this was the perfect transition from the traditional swaddle method. We needed something to contain her as her little hands were creeping out of the traditional swaddle and causing a potential risk with loose blankets. She absolutely loves having her little hands up near her face. She feels safe and secure in it and sleeps 7pm-7am with one night feed at 11pm. I also love the fact I can take her arms out with the transition zips once she’s ready, great value for money. Thanks love to dream! I would highly recommend this product!!!!”

Real review: SA, amazon.com

"This sleep sack was recommended to me by baby’s sleep coach. The other brand she suggested was popular, but way too pricey for my liking; I'm glad I bought this one instead - it's perfect quality for baby, as well as being reasonably priced! And best of all, like the name suggests, it really does grow with your child. The size that I purchased (6-18 months) has more-than-ample length and width, and an appropriately-sized armhole to accommodate a growing baby, without compromising on safety. There is no fabric bunching up or hanging loose on my now 9-month old, who tends to be a very active sleeper that moves around all over the crib while sleeping.”
