Sleepbag Support

Category

Thanks for purchasing a Tommee Tippee Sleepbag. This product support page is here to help you use your new Grobag safely, and to ensure that both you and your little one sleep soundly.

Our Sleepbags are suitable for use from 6 to 36 months.

Safety reassurance

Our Sleepbags conform to the European safety standard for children’s sleepbags EN 16781:2018 and the Australia/New Zealand nightwear standard AS/NZS 1249:2014.

How do I wash my Grobag?

We recommend that you wash your Grobag before the first use. Always close the zip before washing, gentle machine wash at 40°C, and then reshape while damp or tumble dry on low heat.

You can use a warm iron but don’t iron over the back neck label.

What is ALOEKIND™?

Our luxury Grobags are made using cosy, bamboo rich fabric and a signature ALOEKIND™ lining. ALOEKIND™ is a unique cotton blend that’s infused with naturally soothing Aloe Vera and so it’s extra kind to baby’s sensitive skin.

SnugFit™ Intent

All our Grobags are shaped for a slimmer profile over the chest and waist, which enables full freedom of movement, without restriction or excess bulk. The bottoms of our Grobags are roomy, to allow your baby to adopt the natural, hip healthy “frog legged” sleeping position.

Zip fastening

The zip starts near the baby’s chin and finishes at their feet for improved comfort and reduced risk of skin irritation, as well as preventing baby from undoing the zip by themselves.

When fastening, it’s important to make sure that the zip slider is fully engaged, right at the top of the zip before sliding to close.

The easy zip opening is also perfect for night-time nappy changes as you can unzip from the bottom, whilst keeping baby cosy and warm at the top.

Why does my new Grobag have a red fire warning label?

We take our responsibilities in this area very seriously and from 2022 our Grobags are going global! We’re still using the same premium fabrics but with extra precautions to ensure our Grobags meet all the regional safety regulations.

In Australia and New Zealand, all nightwear for children aged 6 months to 14 years must carry a fire warning label. These safety standards are mostly based on the risk of the garment being exposed to an open flame. Any garments which hang loosely and are made from a more flammable natural fabric (e.g., cotton) must carry the high fire danger label.

Sleepbag Size Guide

Your child's head should not be able to pass through the neck hole when the Sleepbag is fastened. If it can, the Grobag is too big for them. Remember to check the weight of your child and refer to the chart below.

Please note that these are recommendations only as all babies are different…

Approximate child age Minimum child weight Child height
6-18 months 8.2kg / 18lbs 68-86cm
18-36 months 11.3kg/25lbs 86-98cm

Sleepbag Tog Guide

What are togs?

A tog measurement is a European warmth rating: the higher the tog, the warmer the product. It’s a measure of warmth, rather than thickness.

Always consider the room temperature when selecting your child’s sleepwear, rather than the outdoor temperature. If you’re unsure, we recommend that you use a room thermometer.

The Sleepbag is available in four tog ratings…

0.2 Tog 1.0 Tog 2.5 Tog 3.5 Tog
For hot nights For warm nights For cool to warm nights For cold nights
24°C (75ºF) and above 20-24°C (68-75ºF)  16-20°C (61-68ºF)  16°C (61ºF) and below

Sleepbag What to Wear Guide

Several factors determine which tog rating should be used. These include the number of clothes your baby is wearing, the temperature of their bedroom and your baby's health.

Because all babies are different, we recommend that you check your baby regularly as they sleep by placing your hand on their skin to make sure that they’re not too hot or cold. Don't go by their hands or feet, as they'll often feel cooler.

For more information, please take a look at our simple what to ​wear guide.
