I love that this sleeping bag can be used either as a traditional sleeping bag or as a footed bag (which means it’s great for use in the car). The fabric is super soft and the weight is perfect as an everyday sleep bag in Tasmania.
With cosy arms and perfectly breathable due to being made from 100% organic cotton throughout, my 2-year-old son adores this bag. He sleeps well in it and it still makes him feel independent at bedtime. Yes, he does like to get up and find where I am when he wakes up in it, but he would do this in a sleeping bag too so this is much safer! The two leg zips make for easier night nappy changes on a younger child. A smaller fit, so size up.
The defining feature of this sleeping bag is that it can be worn as both a sleeping bag or as a sleep suit (with feet). It’s luxuriously soft with organic cotton quilting on the inside, 400 thread organic cotton on the outer and a subtle non-toxic print on the outside. Love the arms for extra warmth.
