Discover the Ergopouch 2.5 tog sleeping bag at the memo. A swaddle sleep bag is the simplest and safest way to swaddle your baby. It helps to contain startle reflex while keeping your baby snug and securely swaddled throughout the year without the need for complicated wrapping. The two-in-one bag transitions from arms-in swaddling for newborns, to an arms-out sleep bag once they start rolling. There are press stud poppers in the armholes that convert this swaddle into your baby’s first sleeping bag as they grow. Made from breathable natural fibres, the organic cotton material is comfortable and soft on your baby’s skin. Discover the full collection and other TOG ratings here.
Okay, here’s the deal. Swaddling your baby for the first few months is where it’s at. The Ergopouch 2.5 TOG is the ideal solution to help your baby feel cosy and warm, minimising their startle reflex and calming them into sleep. Ergo Pouch is your ‘hands down’ option. If your baby turns out to be a ‘hands up’ sleeper, head over to the options from Love To Dream. Once you’ve got that sorted, choose a tog. Togs are related to the weight of the material, which you’ll choose based on room temperature.
Sleep bags are a good option versus muslin swaddling because while some people are amazing at it and the midwives make it look SO easy in hospital, most parents struggle at wrapping their baby in muslin, and a lot of babies always seem to escape from it. Ergo Pouch designs are foolproof - one zip. It’s a very clever design with two way zips for easy access to change a nappy in the middle of the night, button clasps at the arms for when it's time to transition your baby's arms out (when they show signs of starting to roll). The design allows the swaddle to be firm and tight, but also allows for your baby to have movement with their arms (it's not a straight jacket), but not so much movement to have their startle reflex wake them.
I found these great for swaddling my baby. They are so much easier to use than a wrap you do yourself. They were especially great for night time when you are tired and have to get them in and out with nappy changes etc. Just be aware with sizing as I found the newborn ones got very tight on my baby very quickly. I personally, would size up.
So handy at night when you’re too tired to keep re swaddling when their little hands break free of traditional swaddles. We are not at the rolling stage yet but love that there’s press studs for arms out when the time comes.
