The neck seems too small
We have a very active baby and the front-zip duvet woolbabe is great to keep him covered up at night. Unfortunately, the neck opening is proving to be troublesome. At 9 months, the opening behind his head started to really dig in and we can no longer close the zip at the top. He isn't a chubby baby either -- is only in the 30th percentile for weight and has a relatively small neck! It's a shame, as the sleeping bag tends to push up into his face now. I have also not been able to keep him warm in the duvet sleeping bag during (Brisbane) winter, without using some extra blankets.
So warm and snug!
My baby sleeps so well in this sleeping bag, especially in the chilly nights when the temperature drops. At first I thought it was a bit cumbersome as it was so long, but I soon got used to the length and am glad that it has that room for my little one to grow. Highly recommended.
Lifesaver for a damp house
We purchased our woolbabe because we live in an old villa in Kingsland, beautiful house but very cold in winter, our little one stopped waking up when the temperature dropped around 2 am when she wears her woolbabe. Woolbabes are very warm and sturdy which means you rest easy knowing your baby is protected.
easy to wash, dries fast on the line or dryer or on heated towel rail, absorbant for nappy leaks durable and sturdy.
The front zip model seems to sit higher around the neck than the side zip, i just wish it catered for my little chubba bubs neck better.

Beautiful sleeping bag!
I debated for a long time before buying these sleeping bags because I often find wool scratchy and irritating. These sleeping bad, however, are lovely and soft. I love the weight of the duvet sleeping bag - it really keeps baby warm and cosy through the night. It also feels more substantial than the polyester filled sleeping bags. I get the impression this makes him feel cosier and move around a lot less. When I pick him up, he's toasty warm but not sweaty. I also bought the 3 season bag, which is really lovely and versatile for warmer weather,...but I haven't used it yet as it's been too cold. Anything under 22 and I would definitely go with the duvet bag. The only problem is I want another for when I'm washing one! They do take a long time to dry, especially if you need to hang it inside due to the weather. Count on a couple of days and have a back up!
This sleeping bag is so great, warm, and comfortable. Washes really well. When my kiddo outgrew the first one, I got another brand as it was summer and on sale. Plus I didn't think I would need the 3 seasons ones just yet. My kiddo would take out the new sleep bag (which looked nice and felt ok to me) out of the cot and put the old woolbabe back in! Eventually I took the hint and we have the 3 seasons and the duvet one for winter. Sleeping bags remain in the cot now! One happy kiddo!
I love our Woolbabe Sleeping bags!
I first brought a Duvet Woolbabe sleeping bag after I had my first child as he was a winter baby and I loved the fact that the Woolbabe was the warmest baby sleeping bag on the market! I started using the sleeping bag when he was 3 months old and I used it right up until he stopped wearing sleeping bags to bed at 20 months old. I loved my front zip woolbabe as it is more durable if you have a wriggly baby and you don't have to fiddle around doing up domes over the shoulder. The one downside to the front zip woolbabe is that it is harder to dry ...and takes a long time as it can't open right out but I still gave it a 5 star rating as that is something easily fixed by just buying a side zip sleeping bag :) I love this brand of sleeping bag so much that I also brought their 3 seasons and summer weight sleeping bags too! They are now being used for baby no. 2 and still going strong! The warmest winter sleeping bag that I could get and Woolbabe do a front zip bag as well as a side zip bag. Takes a long time to dry because it can't open out flat (but that is easily fixed by buying the side zip bag if it bothers you)
Best sleeping bag and I've tried a few!!
This is the best sleeping bag for winter. My son stays toasty all night and I don't have to worry about going in to put blankets on. Have used other sleeping bags but they are just not as warm, even the merino ones. Need another as one is not enough!
Reasonable price, warm
Could have bigger neck hole
Love our Woolbabe
We've used a duvet side zip woolbabe for our now 2 year old for most of the year but summer. We just change what he wears underneath it. It has been amazing! It keeps him so snuggly warm, he has never woken cold. It has become such a sleep association that he'll go and get it sometimes when he's tired and wants to go to bed! We've also just moved him to a bed and we've had no problems with him climbing out. I'm sure its the sleeping bag that is helping!
Great value, length of use, ease to use and clean
I the love the woolbabe sleeping bags as they have a big age range (3-24months). The duvet bag is nice a thick no need for extra blankets. I love that they are made from cotton and merino no polyester rubbish so they breathe well.
Wears well and easy to wash and dry.
I love both the duvet and 3 seasons woolbabe bags, and my daughter does too! Great sizing that means they will last for ages, beautiful fabric, excellent quality, awesome padding on the duvet, both are super easy care; I wouldn't be without them and would recommend them to all mothers.
Everything, what is not to love!
Warmest sleeping bags
I really love the Duvet Woolbabe sleeping bags. They kept my little girl warm all night and she slept really well.
Highly recommended. I also love that they are made of wool which helps regulate temperature and has low fire danger. These bags are also good for wriggly babies as you don't need to worry about blankets being pulled off.
Best sleeping bag ever!
Wouldn't use any other. Have used this sleeping bag since my son was 4 months old. Went straight from a wrap into sleeping bag. He had just turned 2 so I've bought two 2-4 year old bags so we can use one while the other is being washed. Creates a sleep association so when he is put in his bag he knows it's sleep time. Keeps him toasty warm all winter long without the need for any blankets on top.
Perfect for sleep routines
My 15month old daughter knows exactly when it's bed time at night and never protests thanks to the Woolbabe sleeping bag. She knows it's night time as soon as it comes out and even grabs it to tell us she is ready for bed.
The duvet weight is perfect for Auckland winters and for wriggly babies as no need for blankets and they stay the perfect temperature all night. Also prevents her from trying to climb out of the cot.
Very easy to wash -straight in the machine with a wool detergent.
Amazing!! Best thing since sliced bread!!
I have a very wriggly baby so blankets just don't work. The duvet weight woolbabe keeps my daughter snuggly warm all night, and has been key to her sleeping through and not waking up in the wee hours cold. The front zip means she can't play with domes and wriggle her way out of the sleeping bag. This product has been a saviour for me.
Natural fibres, front zip, reasonable price.
Love the product - have two (winter and summer) and great for baby to sleep in whether at home in cot, away in portacot or even in pram on go! Get yours today. We will be buying infant size when grows out of these ones. A must for all babies
So snuggly and warm!
I love the woolbabe. My daughter has slept in hers from 8 weeks and she has slept consistently at least 8 hours through the night. It is also to know that I can sleep well and be confident she isn't too hot or cold. The merino is super snuggly and beautifully made. Thank you Woolbabe!!
Great quality, warm, easy to use
Amazing!!! So glad we purchased
We umm'd and ahhh'd over purchasing the duvet woolbabe, but don't regret it for a second. Great when travelling, especially to the grandparent who live in colder climate. We were so happy we also bought a 3 seasons front zip. The double front zip makes it easy to change nappies without having to strip baby down. The front zip also means no domes on the top, great advantage when you baby knows how to pull and tug at the shoulders.
Warmth, reliable, double front zip access
We love our Woolbabe Duvet weight sleeping bags
My 17 month old has two woolbabe duvet weight sleeping bags and we love them! They are a great weight, are easy to get her in and out of and keep her toasty warm all night. They don't need to be washed separately from her clothes and they wear very well. This is our second winter using the woolbabe duvet weight sleeping bags and I wouldn't use anything else for night time sleeps.
I love that they are woollen and thick and cosy and easy to get the baby into and out of.
We started using the woolbabe duvet sleeping bag from when our son wasn't swaddled (4 months) the transition was easy because he still felt snug. They're great sleeping bags & easy to wash & dry. Being able to use them in lower temperatures is great. Would fully recommend these sleeping bags :-)
Can be used in low temps, easy to clean/dry, lovely fabric
Love my Woolbabe!
I wouldn't be without my Woolbabe, I love knowing that once my baby is down for the night he's going to be warm and toasty the entire time. Also that so no matter what odd position he contorts himself into he won't end up with blankets up around his face. I have recommended Woolbabe to everyone I know with a baby!
safety, warmth, ease of use
Questions & Answers
Hello, how are you? My name is Gloria Lin live in Melbourne.
I have a problem here with one of your product I bought in one of the exhibition in Melbourne Exhibition Center next Casino early 2019. Because I like the idea of your products which has temperature regulating baby sleeping suit , that idea inspired me to buy a few other products from your stand. Like, Baby Ring Sling Little Sailors, Medical Grade Hypoallergenic Toddler Pillow, some Muslin Wraps. Feels very good with pillow, wraps and sling. But, with the sleeping suit, after my daughter use this suit to her new born daughter, we found the one we bought is wrongly package inside, the package inside is different from what it says on description board. The original designed suit is Reverse Zipper , but inside product is buttons at the bottom. It really not what I was looking for. We need the suit with zipper , it is more easier to change diaper than the buttons, we really like the one with zipper.
We do not understand why you are doing this kind of mistake, the way you cheat your customer is very wrong. Hope you can solve this problem for me. My granddaughter is 4 months old now, dont know what you are going to do with this, but, hope you can solve this problem for me ASAP, or please tell me which way is the fastest and better way to solve it. Thanks very much, my contact email is email@example.com. Looking forward to hear from you. All the best,
