Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

So easy to use! I love that I can give my baby a bath, put him in his grobag and he knows it's bedtime. No worrying about how hot or cold he is, no worrying about kicking off blankets during the night. And being able to unzip the bottom to do nappy changes during the night is really convenient. The covered zip near the neck means I don't have to worry about his little chin getting scratched.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Love that you can decide if baby’s arms are in or out. My baby likes to sleep with his hands above his head but I can see how good it would be for babies who like to be swaddled to have their arms enclosed in the bag. Being able to unzip the bottom for nappy changes during the night makes things much quicker and quieter.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would lower the neck slightly as it can get damp during the night if he dribbles while feeding.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would recommend the Gro-snug as it is a comfortable and soft. It is a really good newborn swaddle, I love that it will grow with my baby and help make the transition into a sleeping bag easier. I feel this product is good value for money and I liked that it came with a free nursery thermometer as it came in handy and helped us decide what my baby needed to be wearing in warmer weather while sleeping in the gro-snug.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This product made my life easier as my son settled quickly while wearing it as a swaddle as he was really comfortable, he slept soundly. We also tried the Gro-snug with my baby’s arms out, it was easy to change from swaddle to having his arms free, I feel this will be a great help when it's time to move him to a sleeping bag. The position of the zip is also a really good idea as it made night changes really easy and my baby stayed warm and snug.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change a thing with the Gro-snug, it's perfect! Great value for money and super comfortable for young babies.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I loved the design of the Gro-snug and the fact that it can be a swaddle or a Gro Bag.  I only swaddled my daughter for a couple of weeks so I loved being able to transition her into a Gro Bag using the same item.  When we were swaddling it kept her legs in the perfect position and she did not like having her arms out, so it was nice to be able to use it with her arms out.  The side zips made for easy nappy changes especially in the middle of the night and the cotton was so soft to the touch.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I love Gro Bags and I loved the fact that this could be used from birth as it kept my daughter warm at night without having to use blankets.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Nothing, I think it’s perfect!

Tested by mum Nancy Paterson for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The Gro-snug is really soft and comfortable. My baby slept really well in it which was brilliant! I like the design and the colour, it's really well made. It's easy to clean and dried quickly. My baby like to wave his arms around in his sleep (!) so it was great he could have his arms out in this and felt comfortable. I like the zip at the bottom, it made changing nappies in the middle of the night much easier!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It helps my baby sleep easier which is amazing! I like the free nursery thermometer that comes with it, it helps me worry less about my baby overheating at night. It was easy to clean and dried quickly. It's really super soft cotton and I loved the grey colour.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Nothing, it was great! I'll be buying bigger sizes as my baby grows.

Tested by mum Sarah Asquith for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

My daughter loves to be swaddled but I am very paranoid to do this. I also do not like to swaddle with a blanket in case my baby kicks out of the swaddle and the blankets end up over her head. However, the Gro-snug has revolutionised our bedtime as my daughter can now be swaddled and ensures she sleeps better and all my fears are addressed - the instructions tell you what to wear to ensure the baby is at a correct temperature, the way the bag is designed ensures that the hips are in a natural position and there is no risk of loose blankets being kicked over baby’s face.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

My baby sleeps - I don't think any more needs to be said.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

That it was made when my first child was born.
