When is the right time to switch from the sleeping bag to the comforter?
A sleeping bag for baby's safety
During your baby's first years, it is strongly recommended for safety and comfort reasons that they sleep in a sleeping bag.
A comforter can be dangerous for babies by blocking their airways and causing choking hazards. It is important to use only a firm mattress and a sleeping bag in your baby's bed. No pillows, blankets, bumper pads or stuffed animals. Babies do not have the reflex or the ability to get out of anything that prevents them from breathing, even if it is small.
A sleeping bag to prevent baby from being uncovered
As baby grows, there comes a time (often around 18 months) when your little one may need more mobility. This is when many parents think that their children no longer want to wear a sleeping bag. In most cases, this is due to an ill-fitting sleeping bag that constrains the child's movements and prevents them from moving freely.
At Plumetine, we recommend that you always leave about 15 cm free at the end of the sleeping bag, so that your little one can move, turn around and get up without constraint.
A 36 month sleeping bag
Our size 3, 105cm high, is specially designed for little (big) kids from 18 to 36 months.
In fact, this size offers comfort and optimal sleeping conditions to your child who, at this age, is still spontaneously moving during sleep.
The real time to switch to the crib comforter is undeniably when your little one needs to get up at night to go to the bathroom alone. This is the time to put away the sleeping bag and move on to the crib comforter.
