Review // Gro-snug from The Gro Company
Swaddling is one of those magical midwifery mad skills that I’m yet to master… even two children down the line, I’m fairly hopeless at it! So, a few weeks ago, when we were offered a Gro-snug (a brand new product from The Gro Company) to review, I was intrigued and excited to give it a whirl!
We were sent the Light Gro-snug in Grey Marl, which is made from super soft, stretchy cotton (95% cotton, 5% elastane); it’s absolutely perfect against newborn skin. The Gro-snug comes in either a Light or Cosy version depending on the time of year your baby is born, and the Light version is ideal for our summer baby!
The Gro-snug is a 2-in-1 sleeping bag for newborns; it can be used as either a swaddle bag, by fastening the nickel-free poppers at the arms, or as a sleeping bag, by unfastening said poppers. We’ve used the Gro-snug predominantly as a sleeping bag, and we are in love; Indy sleeps better, and tends to sleep a bit longer, when he’s in it.
Another great feature of the Gro-snug is that it unzips from the bottom, which makes it ideal for night time nappy changes as it causes minimal disruption.
It washes really well; we’ve had ours for around three weeks now and have washed it every two-three days – it still looks brand new! It’s also tumble-drier friendly, so fantastic for winter, or days when the weather isn’t washing line friendly!
The Gro-snug is for age 0-3 months, or up to 5.5kg. It’s the perfect product for transitioning your Little One into a sleeping bag from 3 months.
The chest is lined for comfort, although this does make the Gro-snug bunch a little at the top when not using in swaddle mode.
The Gro-snug comes with a free nursery thermometer (which has been very useful on warm nights) and a what to wear with the Gro-snug guide (which, again, has been very useful!).
The wonderful Gro-snug costs £22.99 is available to buy from The Gro Company store, and I would definitely recommend it to parents with newborns.
