There's a little secret parents know, and it's all to do with getting a good night's sleep. To help their babies stay asleep for longer, many parents are opting for baby sleeping bags as they can help maintain their body temperature and can be more comfortable than blankets.
Baby sleeping bags are designed to provide comfort and warmth without the need for additional bedding. As there are no sheets or blankets to kick off while in a baby sleeping bag, your baby won't wake up cold.
A sleeping bag also provides a safer sleeping environment since there are no sheets or blankets to wriggle under or go over their heads, and they prevent little feet from becoming stuck between cot bars.
So now you know why to use them, we've rounded up the best available here in Australia.
