How to Make A Warm Baby Sleeping Bag

Baby Sleeping Bags are a safe and comfortable way for babies to sleep. Warm Sleeping bags allow air to circulate around the baby so there is less likelihood of overheating and because the bag has a fitted neck and armholes your baby is highly unlikely to slip in or out, under or over, which is a common problem with fussy sheets and blankets. Baby Warm Sleeping bags are incredibly easy to make and unlike shop bought bags, you can create a baby warm sleeping bag that fits your baby exactly.

  1. Fold your fabric in half and lay your baby’s outfit on top. With a pen, trace around the outfit, give yourself half an inch or so around the outfit. Come in at the arms and neck but not the legs, just run the trace down to the bottom of the fabric.
