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.
Organic cotton quilted sleeping bag:
The only 100% cotton, winter weight sleeping bag we can find! It has a 3.5 tog rating, making it suitable for bedrooms approximately 15 to 21 degrees.
Lined and filled with beautiful quilted organic cotton, the ergoPouch is the ideal sleeping bag for little ones with allergies or sensitive skin.
Not to mention the super stylish, crisp look - like a gorgeous duvet you wear!!
GENTLE machine wash and tumble dry. Please wash your bag with other items in the machine rather than by itself.
The filling is hand-made and can be damaged from the extra stress being washed by itself will result in.
We also recommend you don’t wash these bags in a front-loader if you can avoid it, and in particular do not wash your ergoPouch by itself in a front loader as this may damage the filling.

This is a fabulous soft bag. Easy to wash and can tumble dry low. Great for kids 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. Also we have found that the fill settles in clumps after washing. However still seems to be warm and toasty.

I've owned 4 Ergo pouches now and have just ordered 2 more winter weight of the next size 12-36mths. Have tried with a grobag, but my daughter seems to like the security and closeness this bag provides. I graduated her from a Miracle blanket, to a miracle blanket inside a Ergopouch, then a Ergo pouch inside a Miracle Blanket which she remains in at 16 months. I did find the 3.5 tog a little warm last year with the miracle blanket and a panel heater in her room and am pleased to see a 2.5tog, which would have suited the situation better. They're so soft. I was tempted by the soft jersey lining of the grobag in summer as the bamboo sheeting of the 1.0tog Ergopouch seemed a bit 'coarse' on bare skin without winter PJs and a bit thick with the miracle blanket over top. The Grobag was very thin and perhaps not as comfortable for lying on top of a Safety Sleep which tends to bundle up a little even when tightly applied to a mattress. And yes I've tried no miracle blanket, which she's had since NB, which equates to no sleep, so that remains work in progress.

I have used this bag all winter for my 11 month old son. It's been great to throw in the wash after accidents or for it's regular wash. I have always washed it on a delicate cycle and dried in dryer but the filling is quite separated inside in some places. I'm not sure how much this affects the warmth - seems to be fine still. Love the 2 way zip for nappy checks and changes!

I bought one of these a few weeks ago for my daughter and it's fab. The first night she seemed to think it was a bit small- as it's not as wide as her previous sleeping bag, but then she loved it. It's great that it's so snuggly around the neck and she is all cosy when I take her back out. And I couldn't believe how quickly it arrived! Ordered it lunchtime one day and it was down here in ChCh by the next morning-wow.

I own a few sleeping bags, (Merino, organic, etc) you name it, I probably have it. But the Ergo Pouch is my favourite, for the following reasons:
1. Warm and snuggly-out of all the ones we have its the warmest one out of them all, without it being stuffy. Our house is an old villa, so it gets pretty cold. it is super snuggly. Bub loves wearing his. (I want one for myself)
2. easy to wash -no special instrucitons with washing it. Just throw it in the wash and chuck it in the dryer. Easy washing even hubby can do it.
3. Great price point.- There are plenty of expensive sleeping bags out there, I own a few. However, this one I have to say is true value for money.
If you are thinking about a true winter sleeping bag for your bub, get this. It is by far the warmest and snuggliest bag without breaking the bank, You can get 2 and it will still be cheaper than the higer end ones in the market.
Only thing is-wish they made one for mums too. :)

LOVE this sleeping bag. Has been so good for winter keeping my little boy warm. A great price as well compared to some of the others. I have a Gogo bag for summer and this for winter.
