Slumbersac Summer Sleep Bag
With the on and off heatwaves we’ve been having in the UK this summer my apartment is averaging around 24C but at one point rose over 30c! This is way too hot for baby with his original 2.5tog sleeping sack, so I bought the Slumbersac Summer Sleeping Bag at 0.5 tog which is to be designed at 21c+. The design I went for was Simply Owl and it is a really nice unisex design, with colourful little owls and a light turquoise lining. The quality is excellent, with a simple zip straight down the center. If your baby is used to swaddling you may need to go for one with arms (his 2.5tog one has optional detachable ones) but William hates being swaddled and really likes having his arms free.
It comes with a guide written on cardboard which demonstrates the temperature recommended for sleep sacks, but it’s written in German. It does have pictures though so it’s easy to decipher, but here’s the information it gives:
|Tog||24c+||21-24c||18-21c||15-18c||15c or under|
|0.5||Short vest||Short arms|
|1||Short Vest||Short or long arms|
|2.5||Short or long arms|
Short or long legs
Short or long legs
I purchased this off Amazon for £22.99, as I like the fact that I get Prime deliveries next day included free, making it good value, but they do have a website where you can buy direct also which has periodic sales on that make them a good price too. They are more expensive than the ones you can buy in the supermarket, but the quality and designs really are perfect.
There are quite a few designs available in lots of different sizes, here are some examples off Amazon:

I would highly recommend a sleeping sack for the night time, whatever brand you go for.
