The Lullaby Trust – the new name for FSID

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

FSID – the charity for Sudden Infant Death has recently changed their name to The Lullaby Trust. They have chosen this new identity to help raise further awareness and to ensure that sudden infant death is not ignored or considered to be an issue of the past.

Across the country, over 600 apparently healthy babies continue to die suddenly and unexpectedly every year. This is unacceptable and The Lullaby Trust want to do all they can to prevent these deaths.

‘The Lullaby Trust’ communicates warmth, trust and compassion. It is a simple name which is easy to remember and illustrates commitment to promoting safer sleep for babies in every family.

In 2000, The Gro Company who manufacture Grobags – the safest baby sleeping bag – began working with The Lullaby Trust to develop a safe baby sleep bag – the Grobag®. Both organisations wanted to reduce sudden infant death risks from traditional bedding. Although sheets and blankets can be used to sleep babies safely, babies can wriggle down under the covers, creating risks such as overheating and covering of babies’ heads.

Nowadays over 95% of parents in the UK use baby sleep bags, despite being a relatively unknown product in the UK Grobags were first launched.

Through the partnership, over 3.2 million parents and over 250,000 healthcare professionals have been reached via product sales and leaflets. Further consumers have been reached with safe sleep messages via consumer baby shows, websites, advertising and marketing materials.

Not only do the Grobag® Baby Sleep Bags meet The Lullaby’s Trust requirements in terms of their design and construction, but we appreciate the extra steps that have been taken to ensure their sleep bags are used correctly by parents. For example, the free room thermometer that is supplied with every Grobag® which helps parents maintain the correct room temperature and on the reverse of the thermometer, parents are reminded of all the steps to make a safer sleeping environment for children.

Grobags are also available in different Togs to adapt to weather temperatures. Summer Grobags are available in loads of different designs for boys and girls in both 0.5 Tog Grobags and 1.0 Tog Grobags. Alot of these Grobags are also Travel Grobags which means they can be used in a car seat or pushchair, thanks to hidden slots in the back of the fabric – perfect for travelling and holidays.

Grobags for Babies – Great for Bedtime Routines!

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Grobags for babies are the ideal choice for a safe, comfortable sleep for your baby. The routine of putting your baby to bed, either for a daytime nap or (hopefully!) for the night is an important part of settling your baby to sleep and Grobags for babies can play an important part in this routine.

Used regularly, your baby will come to know when they are tucked up safe and snug in their Grobag that this signals bedtime. A quiet environment – a little tricky, we know if you have older children – after a nice warm bath can also help.

Babies get to know their bedtime routine so make a Grobag part of that routine, safe in the knowledge that all Grobags for babies provide the safest bedding for your baby to sleep in.

Baby Grobags are great for many reasons, below we list some of the reasons why you should choose a Grobag for your baby:

  • Baby can’t kick off the covers or slip down in a Grobag
  • It’s easy to place your baby in the cot without any fuss if they are already asleep
  • Grobags for babies are recommended by FSID, the cot death charity
  • Double poppers and zip-click covers stop curious little fingers from undoing their Grobag
  • All Grobags are machine washable up to 40°C with a 100% premium cotton outer and lining. Any edges from zips or fabrics are carefully hidden away.
  • Grobags for babies are made using the softest materials and fabrics, providing comfort for your baby
  • A FREE room thermometer is included in all Grobags for babies
  • A great range of colours and togs will ensure their is a Grobag for your taste
  • Award-Winning – Grobag has won 4 Gold Mother & Baby and 2 Gold Practical Parenting awards – all voted for by parents

Travel Grobags are also great for using when out and about. Travel Grobags come with slots in the back so they can be used normally in your baby’s bedroom or in a Car Seat or Pushchair. See the images below of the Grobag Travel Scribble, Grobag Travel Alphapet and Grobag Travel Alphapink.

Grobag – the most recommended baby sleeping bag for your baby

Monday, March 11th, 2013
Little Tractor Grobag

Little Tractor Grobag

One of the main concerns about becoming a new parent is how to dress your baby for bed to keep them warm and safe. There are many schools of thought on this but in our research, but the one name that keeps getting mentioned is a Grobag.

What is a Grobag?

A Grobag (or Baby Sleeping Bags) is designed for babies from Newborns to approximately 3 years old. It can be used instead of traditional blankets and sheets. A Grobag has a neck opening and armholes and either a side (ususally on 0-6 month sizes) or front zip with shoulder poppers. A Grobag helps baby to stay at the right temperature through the night without the problem of traditional blankets and sheets being kicked off or getting tangled up. Grobags come in various tog ratings 0.5 Togs for summer weather, 1.0 Tog for warmer weather and 2.5 tog Grobags for use all year round.

What is the advantage of using a Grobag over blankets and sheets?

  • A Grobag can’t be kicked over your baby’s head or get tangled up
  • A Grobag should keep your baby at a comfortable temperature all night long
  • Your baby can wake up, move around his cot, and fall back to sleep all on his own without you having to tuck them back in
  • Grobags can become a great part of the bedtime routine, and will help your baby feel familiar, secure and confident and understand when its time for bed, even when away from home

Is a Grobag safe?

In a word – Yes! A well-fitted, low tog Grobag (they only go up to 3.5 Tog) when used correctly, is potentially one of the safest forms of bedding for your baby. While the baby has complete freedom of movement within the Grobag, the fitted neck and armholes ensure that there is no danger of either slipping in or out, provided the baby is placed in the correct size of Grobag for his age/weight.

The Gro Company has conducted exhaustive research and product testing to ensure that all the components of each Grobag conforms to the British Safety Standards and safety regulations. The National Standards Body of the UK has created a new standard BS85. Grobags are also the only baby sleep bag to be recommended by FSID – the cot death charity.
