where it all began…
Baby sleeping bags are the single most useful baby item I own.
I received a baby sleeping bag as a gift for my first child, which luckily I had shrunk in the wash (a skill I was born with) so it fitted little Alfred perfectly when he was a couple of months old. He didn’t like being swaddled and I had no idea how wriggly a little person could be, until there was a tiny winter baby, lying in the crib next to me, continually kicking off his blankets and waking up chilly! The sleeping bag kept him snuggly and warm all night whilst still allowing him to kick his legs. As Alfie grew older, the benefits of sleeping bags continued to grow – slowing down his ability to climb out of his cot and the bigger he became the more he moved around in the night!
A few years and another baby later, I found myself having to replace most of my original sleeping bags which had shrunk, or become misshapen and lumpy and I was so disappointed with the range available. Sleeping bags are worn for months, several times a day, every day. I wanted to have something pretty yet also good quality, the design and style mattered to me.
Through extensive research I found a number of lesser known and unique brands, from across the world, some of which were new to the UK market.
The idea of The Baby Sleep Shop was born!
Stocking a carefully hand-picked, beautiful collection of baby sleeping bags and swaddles, top brands which are all in one place! The range suits every nursery and includes premium brands, zip directions, multi-tasking sleeping bags and swaddles and a range of sizes and togs for all temperatures and locations.
A baby sleeping bag makes the perfect baby shower or new baby gift which is thoughtful and so practical – having one to hand that had been gifted to us was an absolute godsend one long night when Alfie was little and allowed the house to get some much needed sleep. As well as gifts for the new arrival, we have a beautiful range of additional gifts and treats for the new mama, to put a smile on her face.
I hope your little ones enjoy our collection as much as mine have.
Lots of Love,
