As a parent, you’ll know how challenging it can be to get your baby into a regular sleep pattern in the first few years of their life. But if you’re looking for a way to keep them as comfortable as possible while they snooze, you might want to try a baby sleeping bag – and Folk & Thread has some of the best.


The brand’s organic Baby Sleep Bags are designed to keep babies and toddlers warm and safe, whether they’re napping or sleeping at home or away. Plus, Folk & Thread is a proud partner of The Lullaby Trust, so every purchase funds a remarkable donation project.

Read on to discover why Folk & Thread’s Baby Sleep Bags won two MadeForMums Awards this year, including Gold in the baby sleeping bag category and Bronze in the eco-friendly product category.

Designed with care

Available in 0.5 tog, 1 tog or 2.5 tog for extra warmth, every sleep bag in Folk & Thread’s range is made from organic cotton, which is kinder to your baby’s sensitive skin. The design was also thoughtfully created by British baby sleep product experts with more than 25 years of experience, so each bag has a range of useful features to help your baby have a more peaceful sleep.

For instance, the 0-3 months size features a curved easy zip for speedy late-night nappy changing, without having to fully undress your baby. Meanwhile, the 3-18 and 18-36 months sizes have a clever pocket design that allows you to zip up wriggly feet first, and a travel opening for use with a 3- or 5-point harness in buggies and strollers. The larger sleep bags are also extendable, so they can grow with your child and last even longer, saving you money.

What did the MadeForMums parent testers think?

Parent tester Frances, who tested Folk & Thread’s Baby Sleep Bag with her 20 month old, said: “This product feels so luxurious! It’s thick and plush and our little one sleeps amazingly in it. The middle zip makes it so much easier to zip him in, and the 5-point harness pocket on the back is great as well. Overall, the design makes our lives a lot simpler at bedtime, and knowing that it promotes safe sleep puts us at ease too!”

Parent tester Sophie also tried the Baby Sleep Bag with her 9 month old, and said: “My baby boy seems very happy using this product at bedtimes. It has lots of helpful features that I haven’t seen in a sleeping bag before, such as the option to use it in a car seat and the extra poppers at the bottom to adjust the length. I also love the zip across the nappy line, as I can check or change his nappy in the night without fully removing the whole bag and making him cold.”

The Better Sleep Project

Every purchase you make from Folk & Thread also helps to fund The Better Sleep Project, in partnership with The Lullaby Trust – a charity that raises awareness of sudden infant death syndrome.

Currently, there are more than 125,000 children living in temporary and unsuitable accommodation in the UK. The Better Sleep Project provides these families with baby sleeping bags and safe sleep guidance, supporting them to help create a safer night-time environment for their babies and reduce the risk of infant death.

So, when you buy from Folk & Thread, you can feel good knowing you’re also helping a baby in need to sleep safer.
