10 tips for using the Toddiebag

  1. If your little one doesn’t like the roll-up socks…
    …but you can only sleep well knowing that his/her feet are covered; then simply put him/her to sleep without the roll-up socks on, wait until the child falls into a deep sleep, and then put them on.
     
  2. To ensure that the roll-up socks last longer…
    …and not get worn out quickly; open the bottom of the bag and take the slippers off your child’s feet as soon as you can after waking up in the morning. The Toddiebag was designed primarily for using it at night. Nevertheless, many children like to toddle around in them during the day. However, if your toddler walks around and about in the Toddiebag every day, the soft cotton fabric of the slippers can get worn out easily.
     
  3. If you want to make putting your child to sleep a simpler process…
    Toddiebag should be part of your night time routine. Define the order of the steps in the “getting ready to sleep ritual” and make one step consist of putting the Toddiebag sleeping bag on. We recommend you to do this either before or after telling the bedtime story.
     
  4. If you want your child to sleep in the Toddiebag every night, even when you need to wash it frequently…
    …don’t be afraid to put the bag in a dryer. You have to bear in mind only one thing: don’t dry it on high temperature because the delicate cotton fabric of the Toddiebag will shrink when it’s too hot. At first, we didn’t recommend drying the product in a dryer, but many moms have told us that nothing will happen to the Toddiebags.
     
  5. To make sure that the Toddiebag doesn’t get worn out by the constant washing…
    …turn it inside-out every time before you put it in the washing machine. Believe it or not, this one little trick can help a lot in keeping the quality of the product.
     
  6. If you want to prevent your Toddiebag product from constant washing…
    …we advise you to take it off your child before breakfast. Many Toddiebags end up in the laundry, not because of the “accidents” at night, but because of the stains for which the jam, milk and chocolate drinks are to blame. If it is not necessary for your little one to wear the Toddiebag in the morning, than be on the ready and quickly take the toddiebag off, before you serve breakfast.
     
  7. If for some reason your child doesn’t want to wear the Toddiebag…
    …the most important thing is not to be angry. Give time for your child, this is usually due to the defiance phase.

Maybe through a story your child will get to like the animal on the Toddiebag and then won’t mind spending the night in it.
     
  8. If you are not sure what clothes to put on your child under the Toddiebag…

  9. If you want to make sure that the Toddiebag fits perfectly…
    …put the roll-up socks on your child’s feet and ask him/her to do a few squats, then lie on his/her tummy and pull his/her feet up. So try to move in every way that would only be possible in loose, baggy clothes.
     
  10. If you are not sure whether it’s the right size…
    …do not wash or rinse the Toddiebag before trying on. First check if it is the right size, because if it isn’t, we can change it. Of course we only change it if it isn’t used, so neither washed nor rinsed.
