Lola & Ben Merino Baby Sleeping Bag Reviews
Here is what Cat Timms - Baby Sleep Consultant based in Perth, Australia had to say.

O.M.G. EXCIIIIITEEEEED!!! so excited! so I'm a total sleep-product nerd (in case you hadn't realised already, haha) and when I heard that Lola & Ben
- New Zealand Made Style for Little Ones were releasing a new improved version of their AMA ZING bag I was nearly as excited as I am now! I could have just kissed the postman!! If you haven't heard about this bag, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!?!?! it's AMAZING! so it's an organic cotton 0.5 tog bag that comes with 2 silky soft merino liners. It's 94cm long and sized from 0-2yo so this is literally the only bag you need to buy.
You can see here I have unsnapped the top so you can see how the thin merino liner goes in the bag and some extra cotton goes around the edges to conceal the join. The new design includes 2 shoulder snap options to make the neck hole smaller/larger (clever, much?!) plus the liners snap in the top BUT zip in the rest of the way making it much quicker to get in and out and Dad-proof.
Also this new design includes a small zip in the cotton bag and a neat little snapped opening in the merino liners so you can put seatbelts through. Perfect for walks in the pram on cold days!
This is my all-time favourite bag
. Why? other than high quality fabrics; because it's 3 bags in one. A 0.5 tog organic cotton Summer bag. A lightweight merino bag for Spring and Autumn and then a Winter bag if you buy the thicker liner as well (depending on where you live you mightn't need it). Now it's pricey for sure, but totally worth it! and you'd spend more if you bought the equivalent 3 bags like say, grobags. I highly recommend this bag. I'm about to give it a wash so I can give it to some clients to use and I will let you know their reviews. Lastly, the lovely people at Lola&Ben have offered a great discount for us!
Enter the code (Available here
) at checkout and you will get 10% off in addition to the free shipping they currently offer! woohoo! so if you buy the bag with both liners that comes down to under $200, if you bought 3 grobags at $80 each that's $240 plus your child might outgrow them so then you need to buy more... and they're full of yucky polyester. I promise, you will NOT be disappointed with this bag!
Remember that anything merino sells secondhand really well and I will be happy to list it here for you to sell when you're done with it. But you'll probably want to gift it to a friend; it's too awesome not too! :)
P.S. I have no affiliation with Lola and Ben
and am not selling these for any sort of profit. They're a small family run business that sell a unique, high-quality product that I believe aids sleep. I simply asked nicely if they'd do my clients a deal and because they're lovely they said yes so yay for you! :)
Hello there, I just wanted to say the '4 seasons in one bag' you gave me to review at http://mybabysleepingbag.com is still working great!
Our little boy outgrew it a long time ago but now our little 7 month old girl is enjoying it.
Thank you so much for making a quality product. MC - USA
I just wanted to let you know that I received my order a couple of weeks ago and I am extremely impressed with the sleeping bag and liner. It is such a well made, well thought out design made from gorgeous natural fabrics. I absolutely love it and the flexibility the snap in merino liner gives me as we live in Brisbane, but travel to see family in cooler climates in NSW, ACT and VIC regularly. I will be spreading the word to all of my Mummy friends and will be ordering another one shortly. Thanks again and congratulations on a fantastic product !! Renee, Australia
Your baby sleeping bag looked great online, but when mine arrived, it is so beautiful and well made..the photo doesn't do it justice! Sonja, UK
I'm a bit of a sleeping bag junkie, yours truly stands out from the rest. Nic, Melbourne
The ability to change the warmth of your merino wool lined sleepsac was perfect for our recent holiday. We left here with the winter liner and when we arrived in Fiji the cotton outer alone was perfect. Sam, Hamilton
I had to change my seven month son during the night last night, and wanted to tell you that it was so easy with your sleeping bag, it hardly disturbed him at all…thanks! Kerry, Taupo.
Your sleeping bag is amazing, well designed and very functional.. awesome stuff!! Tanya, Christchurch
