Questions about baby sleeping bags and blankets
What should my child wear inside his Zizzz baby sleeping bag?
We advise parents to dress their baby in pyjamas made out of natural, breathable materials. If it is cold, put an extra layer on your baby.
What is the ideal temperature for my baby's room?
The ideal temperature of a baby room is between 16º and 22ºC
Do you advise sleeping bags or blankets for sleeping?
We advise a baby sleeping bag. It is the safest way and most relaxed way for a baby to sleep. A baby can’t kick off a sleeping bag, so there is no risk of them becoming uncovered.
An uncovered baby might wake up from the cold. By putting them in a sleeping bag you also avoid the risk of suffocation as the bag will never smother the baby as a blanket might.
Our baby sleeping bag provides your baby with a comfortable and recognizable sleep environment. It will help them in their sleep routine even when they are not in their own bed. We recommend our blankets for other uses, too. You could use one keep your baby warm when you are carrying them or when you take them for a walk in a buggy.
Why don’t your baby sleeping bags have sleeves?
Our bags don’t have sleeves to make sure enough air can circulate and to avoid overheating, which can be a cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). If babies sleep under a blanket they will normally keep their arms uncovered, just like we do.
We recommend layering garments to adapt your baby to their room’s temperature. The best way to see if they are warm is to put your hand on their chest or behind their neck. Baby’s hands can feel a bit cold because of poor circulation in the first 12 months. Don’t worry! This is normal.
How do I take care of my Zizzz sleeping product?
You can wash Zizzz products at 30ºC on your washing machine’s wool program. Remember to use a wool detergent. Do not put Zizzz sleeping products in the dryer.
Can I use Zizzz sleeping products for a baby with allergies or eczema?
Yes, because we only use natural materials: Swisswool and BIO cotton are both hypoallergenic. Cotton or wool fabrics are rarely a cause for allergy. Skin allergies are often linked to chemical and toxic residues in fabrics.
By using BIO cotton for our inner lining we ensure there is no chance that traces of chemical pesticides could cause allergies. The farmers don’t use them so neither do we. Our wool is from sheep raised in the Swiss Alps and no pesticides are used on them either.
What is the TOG value of a Zizzz baby sleeping bag or blanket?
The textile industry uses TOG values to show how much a duvet or sleeping bag will insulate you. You’ll often see TOG values quoted on baby sleeping bags made out of polyester. We don’t believe it’s very useful since our products are breathable and help to regulate your baby’s body temperature naturally. However if you twist our arm, it’s roughly 2.5.
Until what age can a baby/child sleep in a baby sleeping bag?
Our largest sleeping bag (110 cm) is for chidren from 2 to 4 years. We have three different sizes. The smallest size (70 cm) is from 0 to 6 months. In this period babies grow really quick. This is the reason that the period to use it is relatively short. It is not good to make a bag too big. Our second size (90 cm) is from 6 months to 24 months.
How many bags do you recommend?
It is best to have two baby sleeping bags. This way you always have a back-up when one is in the washing machine.
Can I use your baby sleeping bag all year round?
Yes our bags are designed for use all year round in houses with temperatures between 16° and 22°C. So except for hot summer days when you sleep yourself without your duvet.
