Essentials for newborn sleep

From womb to world, award winning and highly recommended baby sleeping bags by ergoPouch has everything you need for uncomplicated newborn sleeping.

Commonly referred to as the ‘fourth trimester', your newborn will be sleeping around 16 hours a day in the first few months as their body grows rapidly, brain develops and they learn a circadian rhythm.

All babies are different, but it's highly likely that your newborn will like to sleep in an environment that mimics the close confines of a womb. Swaddling, and ensuring your baby is in a safe sleep environment will help achieve this. Guidelines such as TOG-ratings, layers and sleep tools will help you navigate sleep in the first three months as you and your baby find your rhythm together. ergoPouch have handy parent approved features in all their products, to make them easy to use in the middle of the night! 

Let’s get dressed

TOG stands for Thermal Overall Grade and is a unit of measurement for insulation and warmth of sleepwear and bedding. Put simply, the lower the TOG rating, the lighter the fabric and the higher the TOG rating, the more padded and insulated it is. As newborn babies cannot regulate their body temperature, dressing them in a TOG-rated swaddle or baby sleeping bag with the appropriate layers underneath will help keep them warm, without overheating.

Below is the handy ergoPouch temp guide for quick and easy reference! 

Every ergoPouch Cocoon Swaddle Bag and baby Sleeping Bag, comes with a FREE Room Thermometer and Dressing Guide to keep in your little one’s room.
