Have you ever run the ‘sleep transfer gauntlet?’
Many parents know it well. It’s that difficult, sometimes soul destroying, always stressful process of transferring a sleeping baby or toddler from car or pram to bed.
But we’ve found something that promises to stop the stress in its tracks. A sleep outfit for little ones that means no more panicking about the car-to-cot switch. Or the pram-to-cot swap. And we need 15 cuties to test it out for us.
The sleep suit that solves baby sleep dramas
There is nothing quite like that moment of sweet relief when your child finally dozes off. Unless they fall asleep somewhere other than their actual cot. Then that moment of relief comes with the panic of ‘the transfer’. Not to mention the fear of having to insert a baby into a sleeping bag WITHOUT WAKING THEM UP. You don’t know fear till you’ve tried to lever a zipper on a dozing toddler. It’s a special kind of hell.
A smart solution to a common problem
As any parent can attest, sleep is the most elusive yet seductive beast you’ll meet on the parenting path. When we find something like the ergoPouch Sleep Suit Bag that promises to make sleep that little bit easier to manage, well we just have to share it with you. A sleeping bag that allows baby or toddler to sleep anywhere? Take our money now.
How does the ergoPouch achieve this miraculous feat? Quite simply. It niftily converts from a sleeping bag to a sleep suit with legs – or vice versa – at the flick of a zip. Bubba stays snug and the transition from pram or car to cot or bed is seamless. No wrestling sleeping babes and jammed up zippers required. And there’s no bulky padding either, so it’s suitable for the car as recommended by Kidsafe Australia.
Summer (and skin) friendly
One of the most common complaints parents have about sleeping bags is the weight and lack of breathability, always an issue for the warm Aussie climate. What good is a seamless pram to cot transition if the baby sweats more than a Bachelor contestant in the final rose round? Fortunately, the clever people at ergoPouch have thought about that.
The ergoPouch Sleep Suit Bag is made from soft organic cotton fabric so it not only feels amazing, but is highly breathable. The new short sleeve summer range also comes in a lighter TOG rating (1.0 TOG compared to the winter weight 2.5 TOG) making it just right for the spring and summer months. It’s suitable for nursery temperatures of 21-24 degrees celsius.
The ergoPouch Sleep Suit is also the ideal solution for older toddlers who don’t like the way a sleeping bag constricts their mobility, but still need that warmth and security. And once your toddler moves to a toddler bed, you’ll appreciate the safety that comes with them being able to move their little legs freely.
The Sleep Suit Bag comes in three different sizes (2-12 months, 8-24 months and 2-4 years) and there’s a TOG/sleeve/pattern combo to suit any little person. No wonder it was named most popular baby sleeping bag at the 2016 Mother and Baby awards. You can see the full range at ergoPouch.
