ErgoPouch is an organic and sustainable sleepwear and sleep aid brand for children up to 6 years of age that aims to take the guesswork out of what to dress your child in when you put them to bed.The Australian brand makes beautiful high-quality sleepwear from GOTS-certified organic cotton and bamboo, for the safest clothing and materials for your child to sleep in. The natural fibres are non-toxic and allow for the skin to breathe easily, regulating body temperature and reducing the risk of overheating.
The clothing is ergonomically designed and TOG-rated (Thermal Overall Grade) for warmth ( a unit of measurement used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product). TOG-rated fabrics are super important for children as babies are unable to regulate their body temperature like adults can.
The premium natural fibres are made with ethical and sustainable manufacturing processes which allows the brand to stay true to its principles and care for the environment and your children at the same time. The high-quality cotton used in ErgoPouch makes it very durable meaning it can be passed down from child to child too. The collection caters to newborns right up to children aged 6 years old to help them have the best sleep (and therefore yours too) possible at a safe temperature!
ErgoPouch promises your child will be safer, and more comfortable, in their beautiful natural-fibre products that have been designed to suit their sleep needs as they grow.
Looking for more information about the ErgoPouch temperature guide? A key characteristic of all their products is their ability to keep a baby or child at the safest temperature while they sleep. They use TOG-ratings which means their swaddles and sleeping bags keep children in temperatures from 14°C – 26°C without even needing a blanket. Their sleep pouches come with a free room thermometer so you can confidently measure the temperature in your baby’s room and ensure the safest sleep possible.
At the memo, we stock ErgoPouch 0.2 TOG, 0.3 TOG, 1.0, and 2.5 TOG levels. To work out which is right for your baby, you should begin by measuring the temperature of your room. Cooler rooms at 16°C- 18°C mean a warm 2.5 TOG rating is best, whilst rooms at 20°C-22°C can use a mild 1.0TOG rating and finally warmer rooms at 24°C-26°C can opt for the lightest TOG rating of 0.2-0.3.
Are you wondering which ErgoPouch product is right for your child’s age? We recommend the swaddles for newborn babies up to 12 months of age, whilst the sleep suit bag can start from 3 months old all the way up to 6 years of age.
ErgoPouch Sleep Suit
The sleep suit is an essential part of any baby’s and young child’s wardrobe! These cosy bags mean you don’t need to cover your little one with blankets as their temperature will be perfectly regulated all night long. They’re more likely to sleep through the night as the bag won’t come off them even if they wriggle around during the night! The award-winning Sleep Suit Bag converts from a baby or toddler Sleeping Bag to a Sleep Suit with legs using the zippers, making it super versatile. The suit is made from organic cotton which allows the skin to breathe and prevents overheating making it the safest, most comfortable sleeping aid. Choose from posy pink, deep blue or pastel green shades.
First up, wondering what exactly swaddling is? Swaddling is a way of gently wrapping a baby up in a light, breathable blanket to help them feel calm and sleep well. Swaddling a baby is designed to help them feel snug and secure just like how they did in the womb. If you’re wondering about the benefits of swaddling it can help:
- Keep your baby warm as they’re unable to regulate their body temperature
- Feel cosy and snug just as if they were in your warm arms
- Make feeding easier by keeping their arms and legs restricted
- Prevents your baby from scratching themselves (and you) with their nails.
- Improve sleep
We love the ErgoPouch swaddle sleep bag as the easiest and safest way to swaddle your bub. It eliminates the need for complicated wrapping and does it for you, keeping your baby tucked in and warm all year long. The two-in-one bag transitions from arms-in swaddling for newborns, to an arms-out sleep bag once they start rolling, allowing for extra wear as it grows with your child’s needs. Crafted from breathable organic cotton, this swaddle is the safest and most comfortable material for your baby’s skin.
Sleep bags are a great option compared to muslin swaddling if you find the wrapping complicated. We love these bags because they really are the simplest way to swaddle in just one zip. The functional design with two way zips allows you to easily change a nappy in the middle of the night and the button clasps at the arms are perfect for when your baby is starting to roll.
