If your baby is creeping up the bed or ending up with arms and legs tangled out of the cot, SnugSheet is just what you need.
It allows your 6 - 30 month old to sit up (when they are able to) and enjoy some freedom of movement but it prevents your baby moving around the bed and it prevents them from standing up and falling or climbing out.
SnugSheet™ combines a standard single bed sized, stretchy fitted base sheet with a sewn in baby sleeping bag (or gro bag) portion that includes a zip up bodice.
SnugSheet™ replaces both the normal sheets (top and bottom) on a bed. It fits over the mattress just like a normal fitted sheet.
Its soft, warm and comfortable and the child has a fair degree of freedom of movement and can sleep in a comfortable position of their choosing.
What is a SnugSheet?
SnugSheet™combines a baby sleeping bag concept which is neatly sewn into its own fitted base sheet for added security and safety.
The SnugSheet Original fits a single bed, which means your baby can safely move into a single bed from the bassinet. No need for a cot!
Or you can use your SnugSheet Original in a cot, just ensure that it is firmly tucked in and the strap which tied to secure it under the mattress is securely done up.
SnugSheet™ is available in ONE SIZE which fits babies aged approximately 6 months to 30 months. This is a guideline as it depends on the individual baby’s size.
As a general guide measure your baby around the chest under the arms – At the widest part of the chest. This is the most important measurement with regards the fitted bodice. It does not matter how long/tall your baby is.
The maximum chest measurement that will fit comfortably is 67 cm.
SnugSheet™ is designed to fit a standard single bed mattress but will also stretch to fit a king single.
SnugSheet Original is available in pale blue or pale pink.
SnugSheet™ is made from soft, slightly stretchy cotton rich towelling fabric - 80% cotton - with reinforced stitching and seams and a strong and durable front zip.
It is useful to have two SnugSheet™s so you can wash one whilst the other is in use.
Wash in warm or cold water only. Avoid drying in a clothes dryer as it reduces longevity of the elastic
After removing your SnugSheet™ to wash, re-tie the fastening strap so the ends do not retract during washing

I had to write a follow up to my earlier review to say that the snug sheet has continued to impress. Sleep is no longer a battle and 99% of the time our daughter is now sleeping through the night. The only slight issue we have had is that she has worked out how to undo the zip so we have started using a safety pin to avoid her doing this. Highly recommend the snug sheet!

Very pleased about our purchase of a Snug Sheet. We have recently had LOTS of difficulty getting our 11 month old to sleep during the day and had reverted back to feeding/rocking her to sleep as she would otherwise kneel at the end of the cot and get herself into quite a state. She seemed to unable to self settle anymore since learning how to get up on to her knees. After about a week of fighting her to sleep, I researched online for a solution. We had used a Safe T Sleep when she was younger but she had worked out how to escape from this. We placed the snug sheet on her cot today and for the first time in a week she has fallen asleep by herself!! This has happened for both her day sleeps. She was unhappy when we first zipped her in but very quickly went off to sleep. I am hoping this is the start of better sleep for our household again.

Both of my kids have used these when I put them in their big beds. My daughter from 12mths and then my boy at 6mths. Brilliant little inventions. Just put them on the bed like a fitted sheet and your little one stays snug as a bug and cannot, no matter how hard they try, fall out of bed. Easy to clean and quick to dry. I highly recommend these and feel that you won't be disppointed in trying them and will wonder why you never tried them earlier :)

Hi, I've used one of these with my first child and am about to use it for my second. I used it for when my child outgrew/got to strong for the safety sleep. It's great for graduating them slowly into sleeping freely in a single bed. Basically they are like a fitted sheet but you zip the child into it and they can sit, twist, turn etc but are held in place in the centre of the bed. Hope this helps.

I got one of these after my 20 month old suddenly decided she didn't want to sleep anymore. We went through a month of sleep hell, she would cry for hours then finally fall asleep exhausted at about 10pm, usually falling asleep standing up. Daytime sleeps were a thing of the past! I thought if I could just stop her standing up she would go off to sleep. In desperation I thought I would try a Snugsheet ( I thought she was too old for the safe-t-sleep). It was AMAZING! From the first time we used it, it was a magic cure. She cried for about 2 mins then went off to sleep andy our sleep nightmare wa magically over!

I love our Snug Sheet - I don't know where we'd be without it as my son can get out of everything. We safety pin the zip so he can't get out of this! He can still move around comfortably and sleep on his tummy too. It fits a single but we use it on a King Single - not perfect but does the trick. If they made a King Single I'd give it 5 stars :o)

I first bought a snugsheet when my daughter was in a cot as she kept kicking the blankets off and I would have to go in all the time and put them back on to keep her warm. It worked like a charm. She has recently gone into a king single bed and I use it on there. It has stopped the problem of her getting out of bed all the time and like above has helped to keep the blankets on and her warm. I would recommend a snugsheet to anyone. Best invention ever!!!
