Babies are notoriously active sleepers, kicking their covers off at the very first opportunity or waking themselves with those early startle reflexes.
An appropriate swaddle, sleep sack or sleeping bag helps to keep babies cosily contained, creating a womb-like environment and ensuring they’re warm enough to sleep as soundly as possible.
Swaddles, sleep sacks and sleeping bags for babies come with various TOG ratings. If you’re not sure what the what is, Lana’s pulled together a helpful guide to the TOG warmth-measuring system.
Now let’s look at some of the best ways to keep your little one cosy and contained.
