Sleeping bags closeup

All our sleeping bags are made from 100% pure merino and soft cotton to ensure your baby sleeps in comfort all year round!

Feeling cold is one of the most commonly overlooked reasons for babies waking during the night.  As they sleep your baby's body temperature lowers and if they have kicked off their bedding, they wake up and can wake the whole household. 


Using a Baby Caterpillar Sleeping Bag.

  • Eliminates the need for extra covers.
  • Allows your baby to move and kick their legs without feeling constrained, while keeping warm and snug.
  • Ensures your baby's head wont get covered by loose sheets or blankets, which lowers the risk factors associated with SIDS.
  • Allows for easy settling, night time comforting and feeding - you can pick baby up without disturbing and the sleeping bag will become a signal for sleep, so baby will drop off easier.
  • Helps prevent adventurous babies from climbing out of their cots!


What is the TOG rating?

A TOG rating is actually a European warmth rating which is generally used for sleeping bags and bedding made from synthetic fibers.  As all our sleeping bags (and in fact all our Baby Caterpillar products) are made from 100% natural fabrics we don't use TOG ratings.


Quality you can count on.

All our sleeping bags are made to last.  We firmly believe, that if you invest in a quality sleeping bag then it should last the test of time.  Therefore all our sleeping bags, and in fact all our Baby Caterpillar garments are made in New Zealand by a very small local team and quality checked every step of the way.  We only use the best zips - YKK, and studs, and all our sleeping bags are double stitched for added longevity.

  • I have used several different types of swaddles (or wraps as you call them) over the course of my 3 children, but I just had to email you and let you know that I love your one the most.  It really is so easy to use and fits for much longer than the other merino ones I had.  I have finished having children now, but I will be telling anyone who needs a swaddle for a baby to buy your ones.

  • Thank you for my sleep. I LOVE YOU! I received one of your baby merino swaddles for a baby shower gift, and finally my beautiful baby girl slept through for more than 2 hours at night. I had always wrapped her, but she always managed to get her arms and legs out and then wake up. Having the pocket thing meant she could not get her legs and feet out, then I just had to wrap her arms, and she stayed like that all night long. I will be getting a sleeping bag very soon

I purchased the twin pack (1 winter & 1 std weight) I was a  bit dubious about spending so much but has been the best product I've bought for our little girl & worth every cent! so nice to know she's snug as in her bed .... Easy to wash too.  Would recommend your products over and over again.... And great they are still made in nz!!!  Thanks again
