What is an ErgoPouch? A baby sleeping bag is a unique cross between a baby blanket and a traditional baby sleeping bag. It has the softness and fabric weight of a traditional baby blanket, but the construction and comfort of a baby sleeping bag. It is developed with stretch inserts to allow the baby to move freely without getting tangled. Using only the finest materials, the ergopouch is highly breathable and safe.
ergoPouch bags have a slimline fit and special stretch inserts in the shoulders and sides, which allows the baby to move freely and reduce entanglement.
A clever 2 way zipper for easy closure when putting your wriggly baby to bed, plus it also gives you easy access for nappy changing.
Made from 2 outer 300 TC organic cotton sheeting layers with a bamboo inner.

The ergo Pouch range of sleeping bags are slim fitting compared to other sleeping bags. The arm holes are smaller and closer fitting, and the neck hole is smaller and higher. Please take this into consideration when choosing the size of your bag.
Optimal Temperature Balance.
Sleeping with natural fibres, such as alpaca, bamboo and organic cotton, has long been known to give a better nights sleep, and now we know why.
Natural fibres disperse moisture from the skin, providing an even warmth and body temperature.
Studies have consistently confirmed that sleeping comfort is highly dependent upon the body achieving its own unique optimal temperature balance for a restful and revitalising nights sleep. If during the natural sleeping cycle, the body is too warm or too cold, the human body will either consciously or subconsciously adjust its position in bed, thereby causing a disruption to the natural sleep cycle. ErgoPouch sleeping bags are all highly breathable, keeping babies warm yet allowing them to keep a consistent body temperature and not overheat.
Why use a baby sleeping bag instead of baby blankets?
Baby sleeping bags provide the perfect mix of comfort, safety & convenience for both baby and caregiver. Because the baby is essentially wearing their blanket, you are assured that they are consistently warm and free from becoming entangled in their bedding. And when babies sleep longer and peacefully, so does the whole household! Additionally, ErgoPouch is designed to safely replace costly bedding, which makes it an exceptional valueas well.
What is a Tog Rating?
The British "T0G" value is the international standard measurement of all blankets’ thermal effectiveness (how well it keeps you warm). The higher the number then the better a blanket keeps you warm. The TOG rating describes the warmth or ’Thermal Resistance’ of a fabric, and iswidely used in the UK to describe warmth levels of duvets and sleeping bags. If the room is warm enough for you to be comfortable wearing light clothing (16 - 20°c) then it is the right temperature for your baby.
How do I dress my baby when they wear a baby sleeping bag? How can I tell if they’re too hot or cold?
Nursery temperature and body heat are the best indicators to keep your baby comfortable while wearing their ErgoPouch. The optimal nursery temperature is approximately 16-20 degrees°.
If you are able to keep your nursery temperature in this range, dressing your baby in the suitable ergopyjamas will be best. Reading the guidlines of our what to wear chart will help you dress your baby before bed. Please remember that babies have immature circulatory systems, so cool fingers or toes are not a good way to gauge body temperature. A quick way to check if your child is comfortable is to place your hand underneath their clothing on their stomach or back. If they feel sweaty, remove a layer of clothing. If they feel cold, add a onesie or t-shirt.
How many baby sleeping bags do I need?
We always recommend having two sleep bags. Many times babies have little accidents in the middle of the night and it’s handy to have a spare while the other is being laundered.

What a fantastic sleeping bag! Great quality, soft fabric and great fit! Good all season bag. My little man has been in it all winter with the addition of blankets and it has kept him warm and snug. Will be great as the weather warms as well!

This sleeping bag is fabulous. It is made of such soft fabric. I love the two way zip and how it is nice and snug to wear. A great purchase.

This is a fabulous soft bag. Easy to wash and can tumble dry low. Great EXCEPT for the really close fitting neck. We have sewn the top flaps of the bag open as it rubs under the children's chins if done up. However the rest of the bag is so fabulous it still gets 4 stars. A lower neckline would give it 5+
