Hi ladies my daughter is 7 months but is too long for 6-12 month sleeping bags am i ok to put her in the next size up or is there a reason for me not being able to do this ? i can't think of any im assuming its just to fit the length

I think that as long as her head won't slip through the head hole she will be fine
As long as she can't wiggle down into the bag.

we had the same problem with abby - as she was so tall.
The only reason they tell you not to, is because (like ladybird says) there is a risk that they can wriggle down inside the bag, but as long as you check it fits OK, then that shouldn't be a problem.
If you are worried then the gro-bag ones are a lot longer than some of the other cheapy ones, but to be honest, appart from a few car-boot bargains I found, Abby only wore the Matalan cheapy ones (why pay ??30 when you can pick them up for ??7?!)

I found that slumbersac ones were really good - much cheaper than grobags, and longer than the supermarket ones like sainsbury and tesco. I bought mine on a website called designer kids and baby as they were doing a deal on buying two. I also really recommend the travel ones as we used to be able to put lo in his sleeping bag to tavel in the car and then lift him out (praying that he woudl stay asleep!) the other end. And I used the travel one even when we weren't travelling too. Really good buys.

Trying in May - anyone want to join me?
Hello everyone. First time posting for me. My husband and I are officially about to start trying this month for baby number 3. We have two wonderful children eldest (son) is 8 and autistic and daughter is 5. I’m hoping this won’t be a long journey for us this time. Our first son took 9 months after two bad mcs. We were incredibly lucky with our daughter and caught on the first attempt. Anyone else just started this journey? Lots of baby luck for everyone trying to conceive this month xx
