Steppeebag Features & Benefits
Our sleepbags conform to the European safety standard for children’s sleepbag. Our Steppee range conform to the children’s nightwear.
How do I wash my Grobag?
We recommend that you wash your Grobag before the first use. Always close the zip before washing, gentle machine wash at 40°C, and then reshape while damp or tumble dry on low heat.
You can use a warm iron but don’t iron over the back neck label.
The zip starts near the baby’s chin and finishes at their feet for improved comfort and reduced risk of skin irritation, as well as preventing baby from undoing the zip by themselves.
When fastening, it’s important to make sure that the zip slider is fully engaged, right at the top of the zip before sliding to close.
The easy zip opening is also perfect for night-time nappy changes as you can unzip from the bottom, whilst keeping baby cosy and warm at the top.
All our Grobags are shaped for a slimmer profile over the chest and waist, which enables full freedom of movement, without restriction or excess bulk. The bottoms of our Grobags are roomy, to allow your baby to adopt the natural, hip healthy “frog legged” sleeping position.
Why does my new Grobag have a red fire warning label?
We take our responsibilities in this area very seriously and in 2022 our Grobags are going global! We’re still using the same premium fabrics but with extra precautions to ensure our Grobags meet all the regional safety regulations.
In Australia and New Zealand, all nightwear for children aged 6 months to 14 years must carry a fire warning label. These safety standards are mostly based on the risk of the garment being exposed to an open flame. Any garments which hang loosely and are made from a more flammable natural fabric (e.g., cotton) must carry the high fire danger label.
Sleepbag & Steppeebag Size Guide
Your child’s head should not be able to pass through the neck hole when the Sleepbag or Steppeebag is fastened. If it can, the Grobag is too big for them. Remember to check the weight of your child and refer to the chart below.
Please note that these are recommendations only as all babies are different…

Sleepbag & Steppee Tog Guide
What are togs?
A tog measurement is a European warmth rating: the higher the tog, the warmer the product. It’s a measure of warmth, rather than thickness.
Always consider the room temperature when selecting your child’s sleepwear, rather than the outdoor temperature. If you’re unsure, we recommend that you use a room thermometer.
The Sleepbag is available in four tog ratings and the Steppeebag is available in three, it’s not available in 3.5 tog…

Sleepbag & Steppee What to Wear Guide
Several factors determine which tog rating should be used. These include the number of clothes your baby is wearing, the temperature of their bedroom and your baby’s health.
Because all babies are different, we recommend that you check your baby regularly as they sleep by placing your hand on their skin to make sure that they’re not too hot or cold. Don’t go by their hands or feet, as they’ll often feel cooler.
