How bamboo helps babies sleep for longer
How precious it is to hold a brand new baby. Hours blur into days and weeks as mum and bub bond. It’s a time for cuddles, long loving looks and celebrating all the firsts together. The miracle of making a little human being is one of life’s unmatched joys.
However, rarely does everything run smoothly. Amidst the celebration of new life and the introductions to family and friends, this new little human also brings challenges of their own. The biggest one by far is establishing a sleep routine.
Both mum and baby require plenty of restful sleep to aid in post-partum recovery and the all-important task of growth development. But more often than not, sleep ends up being a battleground and not the peaceful sanctuary hoped for.
Why a bamboo sleeping bag
Sleeping bags have become a game changer for parents when it comes to getting baby off to sleep. Because they are like wearable blankets, sleeping bags offer all the warmth and cosiness of a blanket without the risk of being kicked off during the night.
A bamboo sleeping bag goes one step further to ensure your little one sleeps in comfort all night long. A sleepy, snuggly baby who is warm and comfortable is less likely to wake, fuss and disrupt the rest of the sleeping household (which is something most parents are keen to establish quickly).
After being cradled in utero for nine months, it’s no wonder that sleeping all by oneself can be extremely foreign and upsetting for a newborn. A sleeping bag can aid in restoring those feelings of closeness and security without restricting your baby’s movement or growth.
Healthy hip development relies on babies having a full range of motion, so a sleeping bag that has generous dimensions to allow for kicking and movement is essential.
Now, why wouldn’t you wrap your baby in the softest and gentlest natural fibres you could find? We love bamboo for its super soft feel, perfect for sensitive skin. It makes it ideal for cuddling your baby off to sleep, knowing that they’ll be as snug as a bug in a rug. A soft rug, that is.
Night time changes
Once you master dressing your baby correctly for bedtimes based on room temperature, you’ll still need to negotiate night-time feeds and nappy changes. And, because toilet training doesn’t come until much later, it’s important to ensure night-time nappy changes are as least disruptive as possible. Avoiding disruptions helps your baby fall asleep quicker and become happily familiar with day and night time routines.
To help with this, we’ve made sure our bamboo sleeping bags come with a full zip at the front, so you have easy access to your baby and the smelly culprit responsible for waking everyone up.
Even better, why not pair your sleeping bag with a Bamboo Grove Zip Romper for even easier access and less disruption.
Here, at Bamboo Grove, it is our greatest wish that you and your family get back to enjoying a good night’s sleep on a regular basis. Don’t forget to enjoy all those baby snuggles, as not every night time waking needs to be stressful.
Sometimes being the only two people awake in the quiet of the night can be a sweet experience. Before long, you’ll have teenagers in the house that you’ll struggle to get out of bed at all! You’ll miss those cheeky midnight cuddles one day!
Amazing quality, love the feel of the materials.
Have used other swaddle bags, but this one had an amazing TOG / temperature guide in the box that it comes in which is really helpful.
Best sleeping bag ever!
Absolutely love this sleeping bag! It is so soft and the most gorgeous design!Talieya C.
This sleeping bag is perfect for my baby with eszema. The bag is not tight around the neck which means less contact dermatitis under her chin. The fabric is soft and my baby stayed warm throughout the night. I've got the 1.0 tog, 6-24 months sleeping bag for reference.
Staple item for any FNQ mum!! If your bubba is one for sleeping bags, this is a showstopper! Keeps babe cool in those hot months! Added length of the suit means room to move and grow. Definitely need 2-3 to always have a spare on hand!! Thanks Bamboo Grove Co x
