this hot weather has been lovely, but the one(?) downside we’ve encountered so far has been how hot Pip’s room has been at night. we have a permanent thermometer to ensure that we know the temperature (ours has a min and max as well, so we can see variation) and it hasn’t fallen below 23C this week, no matter how long I leave the window open.
this Aden + Anais Sleeping Bag has been a saviour. it is made out of one layer of muslin, the same as their swaddle cloths that we use constantly. the worry I have always had in using the swaddle as a sheet is that it obviously falls off or worse, so the sleeping bag is a wonderful solution. we tend to dress Pip in a short sleeved no leg vest/suit inside the bag, but if it was *really* hot then you could just use the bag on its own.
all Aden & Anais products do tend to be quite pricey, but I have always found the quality to be great and well worth the expense. I usually have a look around the internet though for good deals, and now she needs a bigger size, actually ordered Pip this one last week, as it is an excellent price, and may be worth a look if you too are looking for size 12-18 months and don’t mind the fact it is plain not a pretty pattern. (the bags tend to come up a little big and we have always found that the size/weight recommendations have run with age, unlike some other brands).
they also make excellent presents too…
