Little Mo 40° Frequently Asked Questions
My 12 week old wears size 6 month clothes. Will they fit in the Baby Sleeping Bag?
Our Baby Sleeping Bags are only for use with children above 6 months of age. Please refer to our Usage Instructions and Safe Sleep Checklist for more information.
How do you determine the 40° temperature rating?
Our unofficial 40°F (4°C) temperature rating is estimated based on the thickness of the insulation and on our own real-world testing. By surrounding the baby using thick channels of insulation, we are able to trap a substantial amount of warmth between the child and the outside air.
All children should wear appropriate base layers and a warm hat in cold weather, and that is reflected in this estimate as well. Keep in mind this is an estimate only and that a child's warmth while sleeping can be affected by many variables that parents should monitor.
Why can't my baby sleep wrapped up in layers of clothes? Or a snowsuit?
They can - if it's warm enough - and we've done that ourselves. But it's not very comfortable for the baby and it can be difficult to get in and out of. Many layers added up are also bulky to pack and heavy to carry.
Snowsuits are designed for movement and are typically sewn-through, meaning there is no insulation along the seams. They lack the thickness to keep warm in cold weather once your body is asleep. Many snowsuits also have hoods, which pose a risk to young babies.
Besides, what would you rather sleep in: a full-body snowsuit, or a thick down sleeping bag?
What materials are used in the Baby Sleeping Bag?
Our sleeping bags are designed using premium materials for a luxurious-feeling sleep experience. They use a buttery-soft 1.1 oz ripstop nylon to provide a baby-safe, breathable, and water-resistant outer shell against spills and accidents.
Between each layer are thick channels of polyester fiber insulation, providing outstanding warmth to the wearer. We use YKK #5 zippers.
What if my child has an accident inside the sleeping bag?
Diaper blowouts and upset tummies are never fun, whether at home or in the tent. Our Baby Sleeping Bags are machine washable to help you get the most out of your sleeping bag.
If an accident does occur, do your best to blot the stain immediately and remove as much moisture as possible from the insulation.
Make sure your child always has spare, dry sleep clothes available.
