Tested by mum Lorna Ward for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I love love love this product. When I was pregnant my friends told me to invest in one but they never appealed to me, and I probably would never have brought one if it hadn't been for me testing the product! This is so easy to use, very soft, washes well and my little boy loves it.

How did this product make your life easier?     

My little monkey was always kicking his sheets off and his feet were always so cold in the morning. But this product keeps him snuggled up all night long, no more tucking him in. In fact he was so snug the first night I used it he slept through.

Would you choose this product to win?

I love the fact you can get different togs for warm and cold weather. The poppers are covered with fabric so no chance of the catching during the night. Very spacious so they can still have a wriggle, also they can't cover there face or slip down underneath the covers.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would increase the patterns available to make them more desirable. Other than that I don't think there's is any thing else I would change about this amazing product. It is an essential for every mum.

Tested by mum Hollie Quilter for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I already recommended the Grobag to a friend! It had a beautiful design and was a lovely product. My 14-week-old baby seemed to be extremely comfortable, it was easy to wash and stayed soft. I was extremely pleased with it - I wouldn't use anything else now, it was baby luxury.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It made my life easier as a mum because I wasn't using lots of blankets. If my baby is happy then I'm happy. 

Would you choose this product to win?

It was comfortable, a good thickness - there are different togs avaliable but I found the 2.5 to be more than enough for my munchkin. It was a beautiful colour and design too; I really loved the picture on the front was very nice and an extremely good quality.

Tested by mum Tanya Cook for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

Grobag are the pioneers of the sleep bag system and as such are the trusted experts. Their affiliation with the Lullaby Trust and the handy features such as the thermometer and information on how many layers babies should wear means I trust their products more than other similar ones on the market. Our baby has been using hers since 4 weeks and definitely sleeps more soundly because of it.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I love the ease of zipping them in and out. The side and bottom zippers makes access for nappy changes easy and the poppers under the arms means you can tailor the fit to the size of your baby as she grows. Finally the travel sleep bags make transporting them from bed to car without waking them a reality.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, the sheer quality and range of bags make them the market leader. In fact gro bag is as synonymous with baby sleep bags as Hoovers are to vacuum cleaners. Recently they have collaborated with designers such as Anorak meaning not only are the bags, flexible, safe and practical but they are also on trend and design friendly too. I love the safe sleep tog system and everything this company stands for.

What changes would you make to this product?

If anything I would love them to bring the price down slightly as realistically you need a few bags for each stage and season. Also more design collaborations to produce funkier designs. Other than that there is nothing I would change about gro bags they know what they are doing.

Tested by mum Elizabeth Armitage for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I love the design features of the 0-6 month Grobag. The side zip makes it really easy to get your baby into the sleeping bag without waking them and the zip cover means that you can be confident that the zip wont poke into your baby and hurt them or make them uncomfortable in the night. I also really liked the little poppers underneath the arms which mean that you can stop the sleeping bag riding up and coming over the baby's face when they are still small. The Grobags do tend to be more expensive than other brands of infant sleeping bags, however, I feel like it is really a case of you get what you pay for and this item is definately worth paying a little bit extra for.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The side zip made getting my baby into his sleeping bag when he was half asleep a doddle! I feel much more comfortable leaving my baby to sleep in his Grobag than I would in loose sheets, which could either come up over his face or be easily kicked off in the night. The free room thermometer included with the grobag made it really easy to see which tog my baby should be in.

What changes would you make to this product?

My little boy is a very big boy and outgrew his 0-6 month sleeping bag by the time that he was 3months old. So I have now put him in a 6-18 month Grobag, which is also good but has a front zip instead of a side zip, I wish that there was a larger version of the side zipped sleeping bag as I found it easier to get him in and out of when half asleep and during nappy changes in the night.

Tested by mum Jennifer Orr for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

Yes, definitely. The Grobag definitely is better than any other sleeping bag that I have used. It washes so well, colour never runs, dries super quick, the designs are very cute and there is a good range for boys, girls, and unisex. It is very safe to use and zips are well covered by material and there is no chance of hurting the wee one.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Some of the other sleeping bags I have used are very short and I worry about being to egar to zip him up and catch his toes. The Grobag is a good length, not only avoid catching toes but also more space for my wee boy to move around. The fact that it washes so well and dries so quickly, it makes my life so much easier.

Would you choose this product to win?

I genuinely love it, and so does my wee man. The design is amazing, and the entire product functions so well. I haven't had any issues with loose threads or anything and it definitely holds its price. I also like that the packaging is environmentally friendly and is not over the top.

Tested by mum Amanda White for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

The design of the Grobag is brilliant - the side zip and shoulder poppers mean that baby is kept safe and secure in the Grobag all night. The side zip also makes for easy access should you need to change a nappy in the night. The Grobag I tested was made from organic cotton and was lovely and soft - my son was very comfortable in it and slept well. The unisex design is lovely and the zip cover is a great feature. Yes, Grobags may be more expensive than those you can buy elsewhere, but they also last longer size-wise and the quality is second to none - the one I tested will 'fit' my son until he's 18 months (he's 7 months now).  I loved the cute unisex design too.

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

I'm a bit of a worrier and have never liked putting my baby to bed with blankets in case he kicks them over his face in his sleep. The Grobag is fantastic & my son loved it. He was comfortable and slept well.... and I slept well knowing that he was safe & couldn't get cold or tangled up, like he could have done with a blanket. I will definitely be buying more Grobags.

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

I honestly wouldn't change a thing.

Tested by mum Karen Collins for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

Grobags have great designs and are high quality. With every tog rating available it means you are prepared for any sleep situation. They wash very well and are easy to use. The variety of sizes also means that as children grow they can continue to be snug and safe whilst they sleep.

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

I like knowing that the material is not going to creep up over my baby's face as they sleep no matter how much he might move at night. That gives me peace of mind. I don't have to worry about tucking sheets and blankets, I can just lay him down in his Grobag and he is ready to sleep

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

There isn't anything that I would change. They are good value for money and perform very well in the job they are designed for. There is a large variety of designs already.

Tested by mum Laura Elliott for the M&B Awards 2016:

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

It is hard to fault the Grobag design. It comes in a large range of classic and fun designs, varying tog ratings and sizes. We tested the 100% organic Grobag which was so soft and snuggly, my baby looked very cosy and content at night. It is great quality and is showing no signs of wearing. Being easy to wash and dry makes the grobag and essential part of the nursey now and I have no need for all those sheets and blankets!

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

Using a Grobag certainly gives me peace of mind that my baby is safe from wriggling under the covers at night. This is especially helpful now that she has moved to her own bedroom and I can't easily check on her throughout the night. The double poppers give added security.

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

If pushed I would say that poppers under the arms for the larger sizes of Grobag (as used for the 0-6 month size) would be a welcome addition for slimmer babies!

2015 – Shortlisted for 'Best Nursery' Award!

The Gro Company’s Grobag is a clever, beautifully made product that solves the problem of little ones kicking off their blankets at night.

The Grobag is available in different ‘togs’ – thicker for winter, thinner for summer. Poppers enable the arms to be adjusted according to size and the sleeping bag also washes well. The designs are lovely; suitable for boys and girls.

It’s a practical product – quite pricey but worth the money.

2015 – Shortlisted for 'Best Sleep Product' Award!

The Grobag (by The Gro Company) is made from soft, comfy material that will keep little ones warm at night. There are different ‘togs’ for warmer or cooler weather (to keep baby at the perfect temperature while sleeping) and details on the back of the Grobag packaging offer guidance re sizing and tog rating. The included room thermometer is also a nice, unexpected addition.

The biggest product flaw is the zip placement; the zip fastens under the armpit, which means that the Grobag must be removed in its entirety for night time changes – a major sleep disruption. On the plus side, both shoulders on the Grobag are fastened with poppers, which makes it easy to get baby in and out of the sleeping bag.

The Grobag comes in a range of fun, funky designs and the material is good quality. Some might consider the product a touch expensive; fix the zip structure and it’ll be unabashedly worth its price!

2014 – Sleep Award!

The Gro Company’s Grobag is 100% cotton and comes in a variety of fun, funky colours and designs. It is particularly brilliant for restless sleepers who are in the habit of kicking off their covers and waking up cold.

The Grobag is designed for optimum comfort, safety and durability. It’s machine washable and tumble-dryer safe, and works well as part of bedtime routine. The product is available in different togs to suit different seasons but there is also an ‘all year round’ tog that is equally suitable and might save you a couple of pounds (because you only need one Grobag).  

The zip can be a bit fiddly and for children who are potty trained and waking up to use the loo at night, the Grobag can prove cumbersome – when time is of the essence; especially if there’s a bunk-bed involved! It’s also pricey in comparison to other brands but the quality and ingenuity of the product make it worth the extra pennies.

2014 – Nursery Award! 

The Gro Company’s Grobag guarantees that baby will be covered up during sleep time. The bag stops little ones from kicking off blankets and their legs will not get stuck between cot bars. The bags come in a variety of togs and there is even a design that allows tots to be transferred from a car seat straight into bed – no palaver necessary! The material is nice and snugly and the Grobag washes well.

The zips can sometimes be a bit fiddly and the product is not ideal for older children who will need to use the toilet in the night but for pre-potty trained children, the Grobag is brilliant! It keeps wiggly babies warm and comfortable in all seasons and although fairly pricey, is great value for money!
