DreamGenii: Twinkle Togs

I have recently been sent a DreamGenii: Twinkle Tog to use with The Boy.

I was more than happy to be asked to review this revolutionary sleepsuit because he doesn't keep still in his cot. Quite frankly the concept of putting him under a sheet or blanket was ruled out when at the age of 1 month he would end up with it scrunched up under his armpits in the morning because he'd been flicking his legs about in the night. He's become progressively more acrobatic during the night ever since. It is not at all unusual for him to do a full 720°!

We use sleeping bags with him but sometimes he becomes frustrated that he can't move his legs very much. The Twinkle Tog is different because it is an all-in-one wearable bedtime quilt and, the one I have, is 2.5togs in thickness, therefore ideal for the Winter months. They do a lighter weight one for the summer too.

"If you travel in the car during the evening, the dreamgenii® Twinkle Tog allows your toddler to be unstrapped easily from their car seat and transferred to bed without unnecessary disturbance. With a quilted outer, and a soft jersey lining, the dreamgenii® Twinkle Tog will ensure that your toddler has a comfortable, undisturbed and cosy night – quite simply A Magical Night's Sleep."

The fact that it can be used in the car is fabulous. We've got a couple of trips coming up which are going to involve evening travel. We'll be able to get him into his pyjamas and the Twinkle Tog before strapping him into the car-seat and it won't interfere with the safety straps. For parents who are looking for an alternative to a Gro-bag, this is ideal!

As you can see from the photo, The Boy is extremely comfortable sleeping in his Twinkle Togs; he had far more freedom and slept just as soundly as in a sleeping bag, but had more independence prior to bed, and after waking up. I'll definitely be using this for a while yet!

Available in Summer and Winter tog weights and in a variety of patterns and age sizes.

Exclusively available in the UK from www.Mothercare.com and selected Mothercare Stores

The lovely people at DreamGenii sent me this Twinkle Togs to use with The Boy. I was not given any other reward and my reviews are, as always, honest.

    This sounds brill, I wish I'd had one of these when Sausage was smaller, she too is an acrobatic sleeper, and had the same issue with sleeping bags, as she's be flailing about in her sleep, trying to get her legs free and would often wake up crying with the frustration of not being able to extricate herself from its confines!

    That's a good point about the travelling in the car because you can't with the sleeping bag!
    Good review and I may consider getting one now 🙂

      The thing is that not all buckles on their seats fit through the Gro-bag hole, this one prevents that from being a worry.
