FAQ related to both the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 and the X-TEND Sleepsuit

Should I get the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 or the X-TEND Sleepsuit?

365 Sleep Bag 2.0

We recommend 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 for most babies 6 months to 2.5 years. Some older babies continue to prefer the comfort of our 365 sleep bag.

The enclosed design, weight, and built in hand mittens of the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 can provide a certain level of security for babies who are ready to transition out of a swaddle. This design along with the organic cotton quilting throughout the body and legs provide an evenly distributed uninterrupted warmth, promoting better sleep for your baby. The enclosed design also prevents or delays toddler climbing of the cot and reduces the likelihood of babies getting their feet stuck between cot rails.

The 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 has been designed with extra length allowance for kicking and movement. Which means it runs longer than our X-TEND Sleepsuit of the same size and can be often used for longer.

Additionally the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 is fully configurable and can be adjusted to all seasonal variations, ambient temperatures, and your baby's changing needs, eliminating the need for blankets and multiple tog bags.

X-TEND Sleepsuit

The X-TEND Sleepsuit is a baby sleeping bag, but with legs, allowing toddlers and mobile babies to move their feet freely, naturally and unrestricted. Like the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 the X-TEND Sleepsuit is designed to be sufficiently warm, without the need for traditional blankets.

The X-TEND Sleepsuit is ideal for toddlers when transitioning from cot to bed, but are yet unable to manage blankets on their own.

Additionally, the X-TEND Sleepsuit comes with a Two-way Front Zipper and a unique extra-large Drop Seat feature, which allows a toilet trained girl or a boy to use the toilet or a potty when required. This can be especially handy for toilet trips during cold nights, when your child isn't feeling well, during camping trips, or whenever it isn't ideal to take off the entire garment.

Is the quilting/padding cotton or polyester?

Our products are certified organic cotton throughout, even the quilting/padding.

  • Inner and outer 100% organic cotton
  • Quilting/padding (2.5 & 3.5 Tog garments) 100% organic cotton
  • Shoulders, sleeves, sides, and legs 95% organic cotton 5% spandex

Synthetic materials such as polyester and microfleece can trap heat and cause overheating as they do not breathe as well as cotton. This is particularly the case for babies as they cannot regulate their body temperature as well as older kids or adults. Overheating is a major risk factor for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

What is the use of removable sleeves?

The sleeves are removable, which gives you an additional way to configure the sleepsuit to the ambient temperature and regulate your child's body temperature, especially useful for hot sleepers. This feature also give you the flexibility of being able to wash the sleeves separately if they are soiled before the main sleep bag.

Are the sleeves Bulky?

Not at all. They are lightweight, breathable with a bit of stretch allowing full range of natural movement.

Are the garments safe for Eczema and sensitive skin?

Both the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 and the X-TEND Sleepsuit are made of GOTS and OCS certified organic cotton, grown free from nasty chemicals and toxins, soft and gentle on your baby's delicate skin. An ideal choice for all babies, specially babies with Eczema and sensitive skin.

What is the fabric like?

Both the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 and the X-TEND Sleepsuit are made of certified organic cotton fabrics, which are super comfortable, soft and gentle on baby's delicate skin.

Can the garments go in the dryer?

Yes, gentle tumble dry on low heat.

What is a Tog?

The Tog is a measure of warmth or "Thermal Resistance" of a product; the higher the Tog rating, the warmer the sleep bag. A FREE room thermometer with a dressing guide is included with your order.

365 Sleep Bag 2.0 FAQ

What does the 365 System include? Does it have all 3 bags for Summer Autumn/Spring and Winter?

Yes, you get the whole 365 System which consists of two configurable bags:

  • A cool Summer bag (0.5 Tog, recommended for 22°C and above)
  • and a mild Autumn/Spring bag (quilted 2.5 Tog, recommended for 18-22°C).

The two bags can be used separately or can be zipped up together to form a warm Winter bag (approx 3.0 Tog, recommended for below 18 degrees).

You can also buy the Summer and the Autumn/Spring bag separately if you need a spare.

- The Tog is a measure of warmth or "Thermal Resistance" of a product; the higher the Tog rating, the warmer the sleep bag.

Is there a video that shows how you can attach the two bags together? Can this be done without waking baby?

There sure is! It's done with the version 1.0 bag, watch the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8LC7s7r134

The new version 2.0 zips up the same way- so these videos still apply.

Love the idea of 3 bags in 1 to cover all seasons. But how does it help with overnight temperature drops?

While combining the two bags, the 0.5 Tog bag is added on the top/outside of the 2.5 Tog bag. So, during overnight temperature drops, you can simply add the 0.5 Tog bag on top, without ever having to unzip the 2.5 Tog bag your baby is already in, thereby not having to expose your baby to the cold. This additional layer although only a 0.5 Tog creates warmth similar to 3.5 Tog in practice, because the air trapped between layers serves as thermal insulation.

This feature helps to significantly reduce the amount of disturbance experienced by your baby. And with some babies, you may even be able to completely get away with not waking them up at all! By the same token, if your baby is too warm, you can just as easily remove the 2nd bag.

Our wonderful tester and mum to 3 gorgeous little ones, Libbie, reports how easy it is to manage temperature drops with the 365 Sleep Bag. Watch her video here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8LC7s7r134

Will my baby have trouble rolling over in the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0?

Not at all, your baby will be able to comfortably roll over or crawl around in these. The organic cotton used to make the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 is very soft and lightweight.

Why does the 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 have front zippers that zip downwards?

Front zip sleep bags remind parents to put baby on their back to sleep safely. Downward zips prevent baby from escaping out of the bag and makes nappy change a breeze.

Why does the sleep bag have a fire warning label?

The fire warning label is part of the Australian mandatory safety standard for children’s nightwear AS/NZS 1249:2003. It acts as a reminder for parents to keep their babies/children away from fire and open heat sources. It also helps remind parents that baby sleeping bags should not be used as daywear or dressing gowns in living areas.

What sizes do they come in?

The 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 comes in the following dual sizes:

  • 0-1 (6-18 Months)
  • 2-3 (18-36 Months)
  • 4-5 (3-5 Years)

- All measurement are approximate and are for guidance only as all babies are different.

Which size sleep bag should I get?

In order to get the correct size sleep bag, measure your child's height from base of neck to floor standing. Add 10cm to allow some room for leg movement. If your calculated length is close to or slightly bigger than the length of the sleep bag (found in the sizing guide table), you will need to get the next size sleep bag. For example, if your baby measured 71cm from base of neck to floor, then you add 10cm to allow for leg movement, total length would be 81cm. The length of a Sleep Bag size 0-1 is 85cm, your child would grow out of this very quickly. You would need to get the next size 2-3 sleep bag.

If you are going for a larger size, you'll need to measure your child's head circumference and ensure it is sufficiently larger than the neck circumference of the sleep bag (found in the sizing guide table) to avoid your child's head slipping under the sleep bag.

We do not recommend getting excessively larger size than what is suggested in the sizing guide table. Extra material from excessively larger size sleep bag can cause risk of suffocation by bunching up at the neck and mouth as well as discomfort and legs getting tangled in the extra material.

How should I dress my baby underneath the sleep bag?

The 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 is designed to be used instead of blankets and top sheets. The table below shows guidelines for the amount of clothing for your baby and the correct 365 Sleep Bag 2.0 configuration that should be used in different room temperatures.

Please remember, though, that babies are all different; additionally, other factors such as humidity in your region, whether there is heating in the house, and your baby's health (whether your baby has a cold or infection or another special need)  can determine how you should dress your baby.

Dress your baby to be comfortable, neither too hot nor too cold. Feel your baby's chest regularly to check his/her temperature. Don’t worry if baby’s hands, face, and feet feel cool - this is normal. If your baby is sweating or has a red face, remove some clothing and/or use a lower tog configuration. This may be necessary if your baby is unwell, in which case you should seek medical attention.

Which size sleepsuit should I get?

In order to get the correct size sleepsuit, measure your child's height from base of neck to floor standing. Match this height as closely as possible to the sleepsuit's length (found in the sizing guide table) at the lower of the dual size. For example, if your child's height from base of neck to floor is 70cm the correct sleepsuit size to get would be the size 2-3 which is 78cm long at size 2 and can be extended to 86cm at size 3.

How should I dress my baby underneath the sleepsuit?
