The dreamy range of ergoPouch has long been our secret weapon when it comes to our bebes (and us) sleeping through, so we did a little happy dance when they released the Sleep Onesie!
Made from natural fibres, the super soft and stretchy jersey fabric is perfect for delicate skin, and these new onesies are game-changers for little ones who feel restricted in a sleeping bag, and toddlers who are making the move from cot to big-bed. No blankets needed! Yaaas!
Why our bebes love the Sleep Onesie
1 // It sees them through the change of seasons
These new Sleep Onesies follow on from ergoPouch’s popular Winter onesie range, the only difference is they come in lighter TOGs for Spring and Summer – 0.2TOG is for room temps of 24°c + and 1.0TOG is for room temps of 21°c to 23°c. So if your bebe has been loving their Winter onesie, they can continue to sleep in the shape and material they love, but with lighter organic jersey cotton fabrics.
2 // They can wear it for years
The Sleep Onesie comes in three sizes so your little one can feel snug as a bug in their fav pyjamas and have that familiar comfort during the tiring transitional years – #lifesaver! The 6-12m size is ideal for babies who are sleeping arms-out (aka, not swaddled) and who feel confined in a traditional sleeping bag. Then you have the 12-24m, for toddlers on the go, who especially love having more leg movement while they sleep! And the 2-3y is made for toddlers and pre-schoolers who are transitioning to a big bed – or those little cheekies who show signs of climbing out of their cot.
3 // It’s the ideal alternative to Sleeping Bags
Not all babies like Sleeping Bags, in fact some find it too restricting, that’s where the Sleep Onesie comes in handy, it’s also perfect for toddlers and preschoolers who are transitioning to a big bed.
4 // The material is crazy comfy
We love ergoPouch for using natural fibres, and the Sleep Onesies are no exception. Using GOTS certified organic cotton and non-toxic certified fabrics, they’re delicate on your bebe’s skin. The 0.2TOG fabric is made from 95% organic cotton and 5% elastane, and the 1.0TOG fabric is made up of 55% organic cotton, 40% bamboo viscose and 5% elastane.
5 // They’re functional and fashionable
Available in a gorge grey marle print, all you need to do is layer underneath (depending on the room temp) – forget about fussing over blankets. We also LOVE the three-way zip for easy nappy changes and toilet training and the fact Sleep Onesies can be worn when your bebe is in a car seat or pram, so they can nap on-the-go… genius!
