WIN A GRO-EGG
BABY IT IS COLD
I remember always being anxious about room temperature when my baby was sleeping. Is it too hot? Is it too cold? What should the room temperature be? I experimented and tried to analyze it to death. Have you done that too?
Then my son Max learned to sleep at 5.5 months old, thanks to professional help. His transformation made such a profound impact on me, that in 2009 I decided to dedicate my full-time career to helping others do the same.
Since then – and now together with my personally trained and well qualified team of Professional Associates – we get to answer this question A LOT.
RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT WE ALL SLEEP BETTER IN CAVES.
When I was chatting about this with a family of three children all needing to learn how to sleep independently, DAD started to chuckle. When I asked why he was laughing, he said that he and his three siblings would arm wrestle for a particular bedroom when they would all go back and visit their parents. It was known as the magical sleep room – even extended family and friends would request it when visiting. Everyone would say that they got the best sleep, and attributed it to the mattress and box spring. The light bulb went on during our conversation. It was not the sleep surface. It was the environment. It happened to be the coolest and darkest in the home.
SET THE ROOM TEMPERATURE 16 TO 20 C (60.8 TO 68.0 F)
…and then take the guesswork out by having this wonderful Gro-Egg that can also serve as a dim yellow night light when you are up feeding your new bundle of joy.
The Gro-Egg will let you know if the room temperature drops by changing to the colour blue so that you can adjust the temperature. If that is not possible, you could adjust your baby’s sleep attire and/or their sleep sack.
If the temperature starts to rise, the Gro-Egg will turn red. You can either turn on the A/C if you have it, a fan, open the window or adjust your child’s sleep attire and/or sleep sack.
This is a MUST have product and will reduce your anxiety and worry, as well as help your precious child get the healthiest sleep possible.
Please never use a blanket for safe sleep – until your child is three years old and in a big kid bed.

WHAT IS TOG? AND HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TOG SLEEP SACK I NEED?
TOG is the unit of measurement for thermal resistance. In tired-parent speak, that means how warm the sleep sack is. The higher the TOG (or weight), the warmer the sleep sack. Lower TOG sleep sacks are best for warm weather in the summertime.
Here is a chart we put together to help you choose the sleep sack that is best for the ambient room temperature of your baby’s room:
