Winter has finally arrived here in Brisbane…that is the day time temperature has dropped below thirty degrees Celsius.
Beds have been dressed for winter…covered in warm flannel sheets and draped with doonas.
Slippers have been unearthed.
Charlie’s pyjama drawer is full of footed options.
And Grobags have been laundered and are stacked next to Lyddie’s crib.
Babies are at their most loveable when they are asleep.
A sleeping baby means that a mother can sleep…that makes them very loveable indeed.
Anything that helps a baby sleep is a good thing.
I have found that Grobags have helped both my babies to sleep.
Grobags help your baby stay warm and cozy through the night.
No waking because they have kicked off their covers and become too cold.
Grobags prevent other discomforts.
Your baby can’t get their little legs caught in the crib bars.
Your baby also can’t access their diaper…which means they can’t remove it and wet the bed.
Grobags provide parental peace of mind.
Baby sleeping bags are approved by SIDS and Kids.
They impede standing in the crib and learning how to climb out!
Grobags come to signify sleep.
Zipping Lyddie into her Grobag is a part of our nightly routine. It serves as a cue, letting her know that bedtime is imminent.
That the Grobag has become synonymous with sleep makes it a most valuable instrument in the quest to be a well rested mother!
A friend gave us our first Grobag when Charlie was a baby.
I think they make wonderful gifts.
They are sensible…used every evening, night after night.
And they are incredibly long lasting…not only does the big sizing allow for use outside the stated age range but they are also very well made and can be handed down to younger children.
We now have a pile of Grobags…all different TOGS, sizes, and adorable prints.
A sleeping baby is so serene.
And there is something especially sweet about a baby sleeping in a Grobag.
They simply seem so snug, so secure, so safe.
And knowing that they are snug, secure, and safe means that as a mother, I can sleep well too.
I have a Grobag to give away!
You get to choose the Grobag…subject to availability.
All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me about your favourite part of your night time routine.
I love listening to Lyddie nurse herself to sleep, the gulps become less rhythmic as she drifts off to sleep.
I love telling Charlie a bedtime story…and then inevitably hearing him ask for another one!
And if you wanted to like The Gro Company on Facebook or follow them on Twitter, that would be lovely!
