Pros: Keep your baby warm because he can't kick the covers off, easy to get your baby into
Cons: If your baby's too hot he can't cool down by kicking overs off in the summer months, especially when older

The big plus of sleeping bags is that your baby can’t kick his covers off and get cold. They’re comfy and cosy and babies seem to love the feeling of security. And Mothercare sleeping bags are no exception.

Mothercare has been selling products to us mums since 1961, so it’s often the first port of call for anyone with a baby. If there’s one thing worth trying to help make bedtime a little smoother, it’s a sleeping bag.

There are 13 different colours and styles in the Mothercare sleeping bag range, and different tog ratings, but most of them work in a very similar way. We tested the Fast Car Snoozie, and the prices for this one range from £17.99 for the smallest to £21.99 for the biggest.

What we love

Mothercare sleeping bags are easy to wash at 40 degrees, and tumble dry on low, which is essential if you only have one or two and your baby is sick on one. They wash well, and even after eight or nine months of regular washing the colours haven’t faded. They’re also made of a lovely soft velour material that doesn’t seem to get ruined with washing or tumble drying, so are still very soft against my baby’s skin.

When we go away we only need to take our sleeping bag, not blankets and sheets. Mothercare Fast Car Snoozie has a zip up the front, which makes it very easy to get my baby in and out of quickly. Mothercare sleeping bags are good value for money, as they last well, and are as stylish as any other brands on the market. Overall, an excellent buy.

What to watch out for

While the 0-6 month sleeping bag is great for that age range, the 18-36 month is actually fine for a baby younger than this. The only difference between it and the 6-18 month style is the length. It just doesn’t make financial sense to end up buying the 6-18 month and the 18-36 month when one will do.

The 2.5 tog will keep my baby warm enough during the winter months, although on particularly cold nights a blanket might be needed, too. The summer weight sleeping bag is much lighter and perfect for spring, autumn and cooler summer nights, although on hot sticky nights, even this is too much for my baby.

Who is the Mothercare Fast Car Snoozie Sleping Bag best for?

Mums after a sleeping bag that can survive constant washing.
