Breast Feeding

Breastfeeding is by far the best way to feed your baby. It's best for you & your body and your baby's health too. Formula milk doesn't come close to it. The NHS and The World Health Organisation recommend you breastfeed your baby exlusively for the first six months - this means you don't need to give your baby any other food or drink. It's the natural way to feed your baby and almost any woman can do it. Having said that, some women take to it like a duck to water whereas other mothers struggle somewhat. Perseverance is the key though. Like anything new, practice makes perfect! Hard work to start but it's worth it in the end though!

As children grow and start to take their first steps, they need all the help they can get. Slumbersac sleeping bags with feet are great for helping your child as they learn to walk and explore their world for the first time! Toddlers can enjoy the comfort and security of their sleeping bag while still being able to move about freely

Slumbersac’s sleeping bags with feet are just like their normal sleep bags but with openings for feet so children can walk around while staying in their bag! The innovative sleeping bags are designed so that your child's feet fit inside the sleeping bag when sleeping and when they wake up they can pop their feet through the openings and walk or crawl around in it!

You can also get your little one into their bag and ready for bed nice and early but they will still have the freedom to play until you’re ready to put them down! Likewise in the morning, they can run around happily in their bag until it’s time to get ready.

Made to the same high standards as all Slumbersac’s other sleeping bags, they are made from soft 100% jersey cotton, lined with 100% cotton and are padded with soft quick-dry polyester fleece. They also offer a selection of designs in muslin, which are perfect for the hot Summer months.
