Hi Everyone, can you put a newborn straight into a grow-bag or is there a certain age that you can start using them?
I swaddled her for the first few weeks then gro bags, check on the sites they sell them from they might be like avail from 0-3mths and that way if they sell them that young you must be able to use them? xx
I thk DD was about 2-3 mths when she went in, only cos we got it as a prezzie, and I didnt know what they were before then
I think swadling is the best way to go in the first few weeks, I think dd was about 6 weeks when we started using a grow bag. She is 12 months now and I put the grow bag on the floor every night at bed time and she crawls into it, she knows it means bed time!
I use the official gro bag brand. You can put newborns in them once they are over a certain weight. Check it on the label but think it s around 7 and a half pounds. Ds was in one from about 4 weeks. Dd is ib one since she was a few days old. I love them.
As far as I know they should be 10lbs before going in a Grobag.
My boy still needs to be swaddled, we tried him in a Grobag and he kept waking. He is in a Wombie now. Loves it!
Depends on the sleeping bag/brand you use, I'm sure you can find some that suit newborns. I would not swaddle a baby regardless of age, but to each their own. You can put a blanket over a newborn no problem. For the first little while they hardly move so there's practically zero risk of them becoming tangled in it in any way.
Both my girls were in grobags in their first week. They're brilliant!
My first 2 kids were born in Germany and the hospitals there use Grobags instead of blankets, they were both put it straight from birth.
