Hi Everyone smile.gif

I'm looking to buy DS, 16 months, a winter sleeping bag (it must be made of natural fibres) and I've found one by ergo pouch. Has anyone used these before that could give me some feedback?

I was looking to by a merino kids one but the sizes are 0-2 and 2-4. The trouble is, if I buy the smaller size, it'll only last one season, and I think the 2-4 size would be too big to wear this winter.

Are there any other brands out there that are all natural that you would recommend?

TIA smile.gif

I have the 0-2 yrs Merino kids one & TBH my dd only just fit it the winter before she was 2. If you had your heart set on that one, I don't think the bigger size would be too big and you would get lots of use out of it

I got a baobag sample and they recommend the ergo pouch as it is all natural fibres. I think they look like a pretty good bet but I have never used one

Thanks Ladies. I just ordered the ergopouch cotton bag it's sized 12-36 months so hopefully DS will get a bit of wear out of it. It's 2.5 tog so hopefully will be as nice and snuggly as a wool one. Bonus was, it cost only $60. smile.gif

Carolyn, I know you have already purchased but if anyone is looking for one and can't get their hands on the Ergopouch, I recently bought a Pure Baby one which is also all natural fibres (100% organic cotton). I think it was around the $59 mark. Unfortunately it's not tog rated but it has a similar feel to a 2.5 tog grobag I had for my daughter. My only gripe is that the zip doesn't go all the way to the bottom so have to tuck his legs up to get them in. But other than that it's perfect.

Can I ask where you got it from because this is exactly what I'm looking for but haven't found them that cheap?

Thanks

Thanks smile.gif I'll keep it in mind. I'll probably need a 2nd one for emergencies incase of nappy leaks and when the other one's in the wash. If the ergo pouch doesn't do the trick - I'll look into these ones.
