Swaddle Grobag Guide


 

Choosing a weight

The Swaddle Grobag comes in two weights of fabric:

  • Cosy is for cool rooms between 16 and 20°C
  • Light is for warm rooms between 21 and 25°C

 

What your baby wears will depend on the weight of Swaddle Grobag and the temperature of the baby's bedroom. (In the same way as you would adjust nightclothes and number of blankets). As a guide, please refer to the table below. Please remember, though, that babies are all different and, just as with blankets and sheets, you will soon discover what your baby is most comfortable wearing & placing your fingers on your baby's chest is the best indicator of whether they are too hot/too cold/just right as babies' hands often feel cool.

How to wash

All Swaddle Grobags can be machine washed at 40°C. They can be hung out to dry or tumble dried on a low setting. As with all cotton goods, we have designed our Swaddle Grobagto allow for up to 5% shrinkage. If your child has any allergies and you wish to wash your Swaddle Grobag at 60°C, you should allow for a little more shrinkage. When washing, it is best to keep the zip closed. You can iron your Swaddle Grobag on a low heat if desired, always keeping the iron away from the zip or covering the zip with a cloth. We recommend that you wash dark colours separately for the first few washes. We also recommend that you wash your Swaddle Grobag with a detergent that is free from bleaching agents in order to retain the original colours.
