I have a gro bag for my baby to sleep in when it arrives. The gro bag is very long. If babys feet need to be at the base of cot what do you do with excess gro bag, fold under baby? or just have baby further up the cot and end of gro bag touching base? In someways as baby can't wriggle under any blankets as it's in gro bag perhaps this doesn't matter. However, it's just one of the many little things that this soon to be new mummy can't be quite sure of so would appreciate some advice!

Hi Eowyn, there is a lot of do you dont you use a gro bag from birth. A lot of people recomend that you dont use them till 3 months+ bacause of overheating and a lot of people that say it prevents them from wriggling under the blankets. If you feel more comfortable using one then I would recomend that you get a newborn one to be on the safe side. And always feet to the foot of the bed, if the gro bag you use is oversized then it is quite likely that they will still be able to wriggle down. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and birth, Nicola x.
Oh thanks. I'll do that tuck it under the mattress. Makes sence. I think if you get the right tog for the time of year there shouldn't be a danger of overheating. Well no more so than using blankets. You'd still need to make sure the number of coverings were right for the temp of the room so I can't see the differnece. The gro bags I have are for 0-3 months and have arms so they can't wriggle down. However, tucking it under mattress will mean there's no where to wriggle to. Thanks for the advice girls.
