|It’ s never easy to transform our Northern European dress habits when we jump on the plane & head for hotter Southern climes. I always arrive at the airport in chilly March, clad in puffer jacket and gloves, totally unable to imagine that I’ll be comfortable in shorts and t-shirts in a few hours time.
When Scarlett & Fin were tiny, it was even tougher as we tried to gauge the best blankets and sleeping gear to manage a small baby’s notoriously cranky temperature controls. We’d always arrive to find all their favourite warm stuff was way too warm for life in the sun.
The new 2-in-1 multi-tog Babasac sleeping bag is a perfect way to cope with the sudden climate change. It was designed by mum Keira O’Mara, as a result of her frustration at having to buy a new, cooler baby sleeping gear to take on hols.
The Babasace comes with removeable inner panels that easily zip out and allow you to magically switch from a toasty 2.5 tog rating in the shivery UK to comfortable 1.0 tog at your destination.
It’s 100% cotton and available in two designs, pink hearts and navy stars. Available from May in 3 sizes (0-6, 6-18 and 18-36 months) from www.mamascarf.co.uk, it costs from £39.99.
