Slumbersac – A product review

Slumbersac is an online retailer that specialises in sleeping bags for children. Not the camping type but the every day or night) type sleeping bags that most parents but their babies in. Slumbersac, however, don’t just offer them for babies they offer them for children of all ages and sizes and even have ones with and without legs and arms in them. Slumbersac sleeping bags are perfect for helping you to help your child to sleep and the range of sizes are extremely helpful for parents who have older children with disabilities that still like sleeping in the sleeping bags but have outgrown the baby sizes.

I was sent three items from slumbersac and asked if I would review them; the baby sleeping bag with feet, a kid’s sleeping bag and a bath poncho.

I have used sleeping bags with both my babies but never did I realise you could get them with legs or in child sizes until now and I wish I had discovered this site earlier.

The first item up for review is the baby sleeping with feet. This in itself is a fantastic idea for toddlers once they start to walk as it helps to prevents any falls when trying to stand up in their cots as they can actually use their legs. It also works for older children or more advanced toddlers as they can still walk around, get out of bed or simply keep it on in a morning to stay warm.

The design is a lovely unisex piece with a 2.5 tog. It is lovely and thick and very good quality. I tried it on my two year old and noticed that the zip zips down instead of up, this is a great safety feature as it prevents little fingers messing with zip in the night. As you can see from the pictures the sizes are very generous and it will definitely last a long time. To give a more accurate feel for sizes I tried it on my 5 year old and it also fits him, just. My advice would be if you want a snug fit go smaller, but my little one had no problem sleeping in this.

The second sleeping bag I was asked to review was one for my five year old. Again this is a large piece aged 5-10 which is quiet a big age range to cover. My son, who is five, has loads of room to grow into it so it really is an investment piece that will last years. Unlike with the legged sleeping bag this it tricky if your little one still gets up in the night to use the bathroom as they may fall but if they sleep through it’s wonderful. This one is thinner and is perfect for summer and the warmer evenings or under a duvet in the winter.

The slumbersac bath poncho is my favourite piece out of the three I was asked to review. I have always opted for bath ponchos for my babies for swimming and holidays but once they hit three I struggle to find them big enough. The one I was sent is aged 5-8 and is a lovely length for my five year old. We have used this towel after the bath and at swimming and because it is long, fluffy and thick I am confident that he warms up quickly. This particular one is a great unisex towel for boys or girls as it is a nice bright yellow colour with a lion on the front but you can also choose from other styles including a pink one and a blue one. If you order direct from the website you also have the option to personalise this which would make a great Christmas gift. The slumbersac bath poncho is 100% woven terry cotton making it so soft and absorbent and unlike many other bath ponchos the slumbersac ones come with hidden arm holes making it easier for your child to move around without the towel coming off or revealing too much skin.

If you are looking for bath ponchos or sleeping bags for older children then Slumbersac is definitely worth a look.
