The Gro Company is a global nursery brand, known and loved for their innovative and award winning sleep solutions for babies and young children.
They work very closely with, and are endorsed by the UK’s leading safe sleep charity, The Lullaby Trust.
Choosing the correct size and tog is important to ensure a comfortable environment for your baby to sleep in.
Please see the information below to help you choose the most appropriate Grobag.
Choosing a size
An ideal time to start using a Grobag baby sleep bag is when your baby weighs more than 8.8 lbs (0-6 mths size). Your child’s head should not be able to pass through the neck hole when the Grobag is fastened; otherwise the Grobag is too big. Remember to check the weight of your child.
Please remember that these are recommendations only as all babies are different.
|Approximate child age||Minimum child weight||Maximum child length|
|0-6 months||4kg / 8.8lb||68cm / 27″|
|6-18 months||8.1kg / 18lb||86cm / 34″|
|18-36 month||11.4kg / 25lb||98cm / 39″|
|3-6 years||53.5cm chest||116cm / 46″|
|6-10 years||58cm chest||140cm / 55”|
Choosing a tog
A tog measurement is a European warmth rating: the higher the tog, the warmer the product. Grobag baby sleep bags are available in four tog ratings.
A number of factors determine the tog rating of the baby sleep bag that should be used. These include the number of clothes your baby is wearing, the temperature of their bedroom and your baby’s health.
|Grobags come in a variety of warmth ratings (togs):|
|3.5 tog||Cold temperatures – for cold room temperatures of 12-15°C (54-59°F)|
|2.5 tog||All year round – for standard room temperatures of 16-20°C (61-68°F)|
|1.0 tog||Summer and daytime naps – warmer weather and in rooms of 21-23°C (69-74°F)|
|0.5 tog||Holiday and heatwaves – hot weather and very warm rooms of 24-27°C (75-81°F)|

How to wash
All Grobag Baby Sleep Bags can be machine washed at 40°C. They can be hung out to dry or tumble dried on a low setting. As with all cotton goods, we have designed our Grobags to allow for up to 5% shrinkage. If your child has any allergies and you wish to wash your Grobag at 60°C, you should allow for a little more shrinkage. When washing, it is best to keep the zip closed. You can iron your Grobag on a low heat if desired, always keeping the iron away from the zip or covering the zip with a cloth. We recommend that you wash dark colours separately for the first few washes. We also recommend that you wash your Grobag with a detergent that is free from bleaching agents in order to retain the original colours.
