Real mums review the ergoPouch Sleep Suit Bag

We asked the Essential Baby Real Mums' Review Team to check out the new ergoPouch Spring/Summer 1.0 Tog Sleep Suit Bag at home with their babies. Made from breathable organic cotton, the Sleep Suit Bag cleverly converts from a sleeping bag to a sleep suit with legs using zippers. You can read more about it here.

And the verdict? They loved it! The quality, the feel and the design all got top marks. Most importantly, the Sleep Suit Bag was a hit at bedtime, improving the sleep of bubs around the country – and their parents!

But don't take our word for it – read on for the comments straight from the mouths of the 30 reviewers ...

What mums loved

The look and feel

"A beautiful fabric that washed well and felt wonderful to touch." Brenda B

"I particularly like the fabric since my child suffers from eczema. I know he is the most comfortable in the natural fibres used." Jessica A

"Beautifully packaged and beautiful fabrics used. I would be so happy to receive this as a gift." Zara M

"As soon as you touch the ergoPouch you can already feel the amazing quality of the organic cotton. And the fabric of the pouch allows for easy wipe off cleaning should there be any pre-bed accidents." Bernadette M

"The fabric of the suit reminds me of luxurious high end hotel sheets – it is soft and silky both inside and out." Susan J



"It's great being able to use the ergoPouch throughout winter months, and then having a lower TOG pouch for when the nights are warming up." Laura W

"I love the option of the various tog ratings for different seasons. Perfect for all climates!" Karli V

"I am using it every night on Harper, 10 months, and she's is having the most peaceful night sleeps! It is the right thickness to keep her warm throughout the night as she's a bit of a wriggler now, so sheets/blankets are pointless as she ends up at the top of the cot." Natasha G

"I love the 'What to Wear Guide' and room thermometer swing tag – this takes lots of worry any guessing out of what to dress baby in besides the ergoPouch." Annette C

The structure/design

"It was simple to use. The zips are high quality, easy for me to use and not so easy for my baby boy to get undone!" Zara M

"The stand out feature would have to be the way it converts into a sleep suit with legs, allowing easy travel in the pram or car seat. And my son looks super cute walking around the house in his suit before bed." Felicity G

"The anti-slip grip on the bottom of the feet worked great for walking around, especially on the tiles." Renae H

"Hands down my favourite feature is the front zip. I have had MANY issues with my Houdini toddler working out the zips of other brands, but having the zip behind a small pocket and also an additional snapped flap has so far meant Mr Houdini has stayed inside." Annette C

"I love sleep bags in general, but have never used one that converts into a suit with legs. I found it simple to switch between the sleep bag and suit modes." Jessica A

"I haven't seen another sleeping bag around that has short sleeves – they are either no sleeves or long sleeves. The short sleeves are one of our favourite things about the ergoPouch." Sarah W

"I loved the button patch across the chest to cover the zipper. Very kid friendly!" Ashlee W


"10/10. I was very surprised about what this suit could do." Brenda B

"Such a simple product has made such an enormous difference, and yes I will be telling all my friends about this wonderful product. You can imagine how ecstatic I was when on the first night she slept through! I didn't need to worry that she had kicked her blanket off and was cold, so I also had a great night of interrupted sleep." Ruth V

"We love it, it's so easy to use! And it's versatile, easily being able to swap between a sleeping bag and sleeping suit, which is handy for an active toddler." Laura W

"Definitely would recommend this, especially to new mums. It's made my life so much easier and bub feels warm and snug while at the same time has his freedom to move comfortably." Suman J

"My little girl performs gymnastics in her sleep, she is constantly moving from one end of the cot to the other during the night and gets herself tangled and twisted in her sleep bags. The sleep suit prevents this from happening and she seems to sleep more soundly." Susan J

"This sleep suit is great for our wriggly 8 month old. It is fitted enough to prevent him from moving around the cot too much, but still easy enough for him to find a comfortable sleeping position. The suit was easy to get on and off, and the zipper allowed for very easy overnight nappy changes when needed." Karli V

"We have already started recommending it to our friends and family! The fact that it is convertible means that it can be tailored by each family to their unique circumstances and the personality of their baby." Chrissy J
