To ensure you’re giving baby her best ever bedtime, Laura Mason puts these sleep suits and bags to the test

Best for winter: The Little Green Sheep wild cotton sleeping bag
This 2.5-tog bag is thick and chunky to touch and made from organic, soft and snuggly cotton. Spacious armholes and a voluminous interior ensure there’s plenty of wiggle room, too. A donation from each purchase goes towards supporting the Woodland Trust. £38.95, thelittlegreensheep.co.uk

Best for summer: aden + anais classic sleeping bag
This sleeping bag comes in an array of prints, including this Winnie The Pooh design which is part of the brand’s endearing Disney range. The pure muslin bag is incredibly breathable, so it’s a perfect choice for warmer months, allowing baby’s temperature to regulate more easily. £29.95, adenandanais.co.uk

Best flexibility: Ergopouch sleep suit bag
This design cleverly converts from a traditional sleeping bag to a sleep suit with leg pockets, allowing toddling babies to freely move their legs. It allows little ones to not only stand comfortably, but the addition of slip-free grip feet ensures walking is easy, and helps to prevent any falls when standing in the cot. £55.99, naturalbabyshower.co.uk 

Best for travel: The Gro Company Orla Kiely travel gro bag
To transport a sleeping baby safely, and let you gently lift her into the cot without disturbing her, this bag features flaps to accommodate a five-point harness on a car seat or pushchair, alongside a protective two-way zip closure. Better still, it’s available in a range of standout Orla Kiely prints. £36.99, gro-store.com

Best for newborns: Love To Dream Swaddle UP
A combined sleeping bag and swaddle in one, the Swaddle UP secures babies and encourages them to sleep with their arms raised to emulate their natural sleeping position in the womb. It also assists with self-soothing, as babies are able to touch their faces for comfort, all the while feeling safe and snug. £22.99, cheekyrascals.co.uk
