Snug as a bug
Baby sleeping bags are a fantastic invention. They can't be kicked off like blankets and prevent your baby from waking in the night from cold. As they get older, they also prevent your child from climbing out of their cot! I used sleeping bags for both Tom and Lily, both of whom slept in them until they were around three years old. I didn't put either of them in one until they were in a big cot though. Emma, on the other hand, is such a little fidget that I've had to put her in a sleeping bag at night even though she is still in the Moses basket. I'd put her to bed in the 'feet to foot' position and find her later in the night with her head touching the top of the basket and the blankets way down at the bottom. Thanks to her new pink sleeping bag, she now stays warm and cozy all night long, no matter how much she fidgets. Not to mention that she looks absolutely adorable in it!
