Sleeping bags are a hot commodity in the world of baby and toddler sleep. A great sleeping bag will be a comfort to your child and hopefully help them (and you) towards a much better night’s sleep. So how do you find a great one?
Swiss company Zizzz are convinced that the answer lies in how you make the sleeping bag to begin with, and specifically, how you fill it. Most sleeping bags on the market are filled with some form of polyester, mainly because it is affordable and machine washable. But if you’ve ever slept with a polyester or synthetic quilt, you’ll know just how unsettled your sleep can be.
This is because polyester fillings don’t provide the best heat regulation, so you’ll sometimes be hot, and sometimes cold. Zizzz have taken this into account, and use only top quality Swiss wool to fill all their sleeping bags. It’s great for heat regulation, and it’s the ultimate in renewable resources! The cotton exteriors of the bags are all certified organic. What’s more, because they are committed to sustainability and best practice in their manufacturing, their sleeping bags are all made in Europe. That means they haven’t travelled all over the world during production and Zizzz can ensure their workers receive a fair wage.
Such quality comes at a price, it must be said, and on current conversion rates, you’d expect to pay from about $135 for one of these lovely sleeping bags (all their prices are in Swiss francs). The bags come in sizes to fit children up to four years, and you can see all their designs and purchase directly from Zizzz.
