“Little Earth Baby’s sleeping bag is very well made, beautifully soft and light and is suitable for newborns and up.
As a 1.8 tog bag and being made of organic natural materials, it is light and breathable as well as being thermo-regulating and perfectly meets all needs for the varying temperatures of the transition seasons and summer.
This sleeping bag has been very thoughtfully designed to fit children right from newborn up to 2 years old. It is the first sleeping bag I have seen with two sets of press studs on the neck so that it is suitable for the 0-6 month age too. There are also press studs to alter the size of the arm hole to ensure a safe and comfortable fit at all times.
Little Earth Baby’s sleeping bag includes a super soft velour organic cotton comforter which is very cute and cleverly attaches to the bag with a press stud. This means that baby can go to sleep touching it and won’t lose it in the night. A very clever idea.
This sleeping bag is apparently suitable for room temperatures between 13-27 degrees, depending on what is worn beneath. This is an English sleeping bag and I think they have different views on bedtime dressing as for the 13-15 degree room temperature, a jumper is listed as necessary which I wouldn’t normally choose as bedtime attire. I would say that this sleeping bag is more suited between 18-27 degrees by Australian standards.
This is a gorgeous, breathable 3 seasons sleeping bag which has some very useful and clever features of being adjustable for a newborn and also having a clip on comforter.”
“What a cute fun bag! This bag comes in several great colours and has an adorable attached (with popper) comforter that can be removed (you would need to remove it for young children – SIDS guidelines). This is a 0-2 bag so long but can be adjusted with double shoulder and underarm poppers. Seat belt opening and two-way side zip of YKK quality that goes around the bottom of the bag as well. I felt the finishing of the bag could be a little better along the zip and inside but this doesn’t detract from its functionality. The bamboo wading will help to make it a multi season bag. Very soft, cute sleeping bag.

“This is such a versatile little sleeping bag! What I instantly love about it is that it thermo-regulates between temperatures of 13 to 27 degrees which is ideal at this time of year in our unpredictable climate (Springtime in Sydney).
The other wonderful thing about it is that it’s wearable between 0 and 2 years. Little poppers under the arms allow you to adjust the size to your baby. It also comes with a little comforter which you can pop on or off for bub – my baby doesn’t use a comforter but I’m going to leave it attached to see what happens!
Bub has been very comfortable in the week since I started using it – it’s super soft and not too bulky thanks to bamboo wadding. The zip around the side of the bag has taken some getting used to but I actually think it makes it easier when bub is kicking and flailing because his feet and legs can’t escape so easily from the front. It’s also great for particularly hot evenings when I want to expose his feet and get a little air in there. Love the two-way zip!”
“Extremely soft, beautifully made. Love that this brand supports Surfers against Sewage.”
