Once your baby outgrows his swaddles at around 3 months, it’s a good idea to put him in a sleep sack for his naps and at bedtime. Also known as a baby sleeping bag, these cosy cover-ups will keep your baby warm and comfy, while giving him plenty of room to stretch his legs.
Since it replaces loose bedding, you won’t have to worry that your sweetie will suffocate under a thick blanket or get tangled up in layers of cloth. Even better, baby won’t feel cold because he’s kicked off his blankie. This means you won’t have to wake up to tend to him either.
When you’re away from home, junior’s favourite sleeping bag will also be a source of comfort, helping him settle into a new environment faster. Sleep sacks are indeed a godsend, but since there are so many in the market, we’ve done the groundwork for you!
Baa Baa Sheepz Wearable Blanket Zip Sleep Bag
WHAT This baby sleeping bag is made of bamboo fibre fabric, and has a peanut shape that gently hugs shoulders and hips to give baby a snug and secure feeling. The two-way zipper (top-down and bottom-up) makes for easy diaper changes, and the product is also hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, making it great for babies with sensitive skin.
PARENTS SAY Perfect for Singapore weather. Good material which is also lightweight and stretchable.
Aden Anais Essentials Cotton Muslin Sleeping Bag
WHAT Made of 100% cotton muslin, this sleeping bag slips over baby's pyjamas, eliminating the danger of loose blankets. The material is pre-washed so it's super soft from the start, and remains that way wash after wash. The generous sack design also allows room for kicking, but cannot be kicked off so baby stays warm all night.
PARENTS SAY Reasonably price compared to many brands out there. Very practical when taking baby out to a restaurant in the bassinet of the stroller.

WHAT Crafted from soft and luxurious organic linen and cotton blend, this organic sleeping bag is ideal for your baby's delicate skin. The sleeping bag is designed with side -zip fastening for easy changing and under-arm poppers for correct sizing. Available in two sizes for 0 to 6 months, and 6 to 18 months.
PARENTS SAY Ideal for anyone looking for super comfy sleeping products for their baby. Unisex and of great quality.
Love to Dream Swaddle UP Transition Bag
WHAT This transition bag helps your baby graduate from swaddling, while maintaining the snug secure feeling of being swaddled. The patented easy zip-off wings help your little one adjust to sleeping without their arms swaddled, and ensures fewer disturbances to your baby's sleep routine as they transition. The hip-healthy design also allows your bub’s hips and legs to flex naturally.
PARENTS SAY Works well as a transition bag (with one wing off). Plenty of space for baby to kick, and the two-way zipper is great for quick night-time diaper changes.
Ergobaby On The Move Sleep Bag
FROM Baby Central
WHAT This sleep bag can also be converted to a walker bag for lounging, playing and toddling around. Convertible feet holes let baby switch from sleep to play, and the bag’s length can be modified to prevent trips and grow with baby. There’s also a travel-friendly seatbelt slot for strollers and car seats.
PARENTS SAY Well made, soft, cosy and functional. The feet-out option is fantastic and the shoulder snaps for easy removal is ingenious.
