The year before I fell pregnant with Roo, one of my work colleagues was pregnant with twins. She would come into work and show us all the baby things she has bought. One of the things she brought in was a Grobag, a baby sleeping bag. A friend had recommended it to her and I adored the idea of it.
So once I feel pregnant with Roo one of the first things I bought was a Grobag for her. I was ever so slightly obsessed with them and she has six of them before she arrived. Needless to say, I loved them and found them a bedtime essential.
Over the years Tigger had them and now Piglet too. They are so incredibly easy and safe to use and I don’t have to worry about covers being kicked off.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
The Orla Kiely collection is simply gorgeous, with each of the different designs making it a tough decision as to which is our favourite. Whilst Piglet has the Orla Kiely Birds Grobag from the AW16 collection, I really do love the Orla Kiely Martian Grobag from the upcoming SS17 collection. Alongside the beautiful designs, parents are able to rest assured in the safety of The Gro Company who were founded back in 2000 by two parents who were unable to get their baby to sleep. Since then they have managed to get over 80% of babies using baby sleeping bags and are partnered with the Lullaby Trust.
