“The ErgoPouch Sleep Suit Bag is a wonderfully innovative and very well made organic cotton sleeping bag. With the option for it to be either a sleep suit or a full sleeping bag, it really is just so clever.
Being made and filled with 100% organic cotton, this sleeping bag is perfectly breathable and ensures you won’t have a hot sweaty child waking in a panic in the middle of the night or with a heat rash which I love, as well as it being beautifully non-toxic. (Most winter sleeping bags are filled with synthetic materials even if they have organic cotton on the outer.)
The sizing for these bags are a smaller age range and on the smaller side sizing wise than some. It’s definitely worth sizing up if you are unsure. These bags do have a more affordable price point which makes up for needing to get more over the same period.
With wooden floorboards in our house, I was a little cautious about having my 19 month old tearing around with the Sleep Suit Bag on, given that his feet are so thickly covered. The grips on the underneath of the foot do work effectively though and for short periods of time, this gives immense amounts of joyous novelty. I find middle of the night nappy changes easier with this sleep suit, given it has two zips – one for each leg, however this bag is more tricky to do a sleeping transfer into as it doesn’t have one long zip.
This is a fantastic and fun sleeping bag/ suit for a toddler. Highly recommended.”
“Love this sleeping suit bag! I have been frustrated in the past that bags don’t come with arms as our house is cold in winter and bub has always been too chilly and I had to get additional arm warmers. Problem solved – thanks ergoPouch! My baby really loves this suit. He moves about in it easily and is happy to stay in it long past sleep time. As he grows, I know he’ll love the option to turn the bag into a suit with legs. I’m so pleased to find a product that is organic and that I feel great comfort having my baby sleep in. It can be a bit of challenge to wiggle baby into as it’s a two-way zip that meets in the middle (doesn’t open up fully) and I found the sizing a bit small (my 2-12 months size is too short at 8 months. Plenty of room so far in the 8-24 months) Really awesome sleeping bag that suits our family perfectly.

“You don’t need to convince me when it comes to ErgoPouch sleeping bags – I’ve been using them with both kids from cocoon size! While I’ve never actually owned this style of sleeping bag before, what strikes me about it is how warm it is. I love that it comes with the extra insulation of arms and that the lower half can be zipped into two, transforming it into a sleep suit.
What I love most is how transparent ErgoPouch are in their marketing materials: all products are responsibly made with premium organic materials. They also have a great price point compared to other sleeping bags of this quality on the market… I really can’t wait for bub to get all snugly in this sleeping bag next winter!”
“Love the legs for transition, and grip pads on feet. Very versatile product.”
