0.5 or 1 tog sleeping bags?
Aug 30, 2010 12:38PM
I can't find some anywhere! LO is only 2.5 weeks but refuses to be swaddled and kicks off her bedding, problem is our house is so warm, even having our bedroom window open before bed I can't get temp under 21c! Anyone have any suggestions? Xxx

try tk maxx, they usually have quite a few in a range of sizes and togs, or try ebay for second hand and/or new ones...personally i think grobag are the best brand of sleepbag, the shops own toend to be quite a bit shorter meaning they grow out of them sooner. also as ur lo is still v young, they don't recomend sleepbags for babies under 7.5lb, not sure how much ur lo weighs. hth xx

I have a very thin, inexpensive sleeping bag from Tesco (about ??4 or ??5 I think). It was just off the rack with all the other baby clothing. It's so light you almost wonder if there's any point to it, iykwim!

amazon sell 0.5 and 1 tog and they are cheaper than other internet sites (and free delivery!) the 0.5 tog would be perfect as they are just the thickness of a thin cotton sheet

They sell 1 tog in mothercare and Iv found 0.5 tog on ebay, however if your house is warm I wouldnt bother with a blanket. My bedroom has been consistantly over 22 degrees and have only put a blanket on lo in the past few days when its dropped below 21 degrees and been colder in the morning (she is 13 wks now)
I found putting a blanket on plus long sleeve sleep suit gave her heat rash in the first few days so I stopped with the blanket and she has been fine, she never seemed cold to touch either (but regualrly suffers from cold hands so used the suits with scratch mits on and covered her hands) X

My bedroom is around the same temperature and I use a 1 tog, like others I didn't spend a fortune and got them from Matalan and Asda - I have 3 in total which is great as there is occasionally a leaky nappy so always got one or two to hand as spares! lol. I don't use any blankets basically if the room is more than 22 degrees then I put her in a vest with the 1tog sleeping bag, and if it falls below that then I put a vest and sleepsuit on with the sleeping bag and that seems to suit her fine.
If she's just in a vest and the night drops cooler then I just pop her in a cardigan over the top if she wakes up and I think she's on the cool side.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
