Oh the beauty of a baby at sleep, there really is nothing better… unless it is a baby asleep in one of the superb contemporary surrealist sleep bags from French brand Anatology. 

Launched at the 2013 Playtime Paris showcase, Anatology is one of those standout brands that achieved the almost impossible in baby land these days – they had broken the mould. Sure there are plenty of utterly divine baby sleep bags on the market, but this is the first we’ve seen that takes the product to an edgy contemporary level with designs and colour ways that are more akin to top-end designer bed linens than baby nursery items.

There are checkers in a range of unusual, but delicious, nursery colours: lime, aqua green, flamingo pink… and macaws, flamingos, panda themes destined to set one’s baby brain into wild flights of fantasy in the middle of those broken nights…

The title of the collection is Graphic Jungle – the perfect description for this unapologetically modern meeting of contemporary artistic traditions with daringly wild motifs

Made from 100 per cent cotton poplin, the length is adjustable with the first size (created by popping a few closures along the back of the bag) catering to newborns through to 6 months; the second (fully open) from six to 18 months. These sleep bags are also that crucial thing in the land of babies – machine washable (at 30°) – and have brass snap closures on both the side and at the shoulders, making for super easy baby changes between naps.


Why? With duvets out of the question during the baby months (due to safety concerns), baby sleep bags are a brilliant way of ensuring your baby stays warm while they sleep without having to fuss with dressing them in a multitude of layers. Plus, aesthetically, these Anatology bags are pure contemporary cool.

Outstanding Features The designs!! as well as the details – such as brass closures. Also the fact that it is machine washable for no-hassle cleaning.

Best For Design savvy parents who want something as chic as their own bedlinen for their baby.
