Pregnancy & New Baby Event: Gro-egg Review

Grobag EggI remember as a new mom, being constantly concerned about whether my daughter was too hot, cold, needed thicker pajamas, thinner pajamas, you get the picture. The Gro-egg is a product I saw on the market after my daughter was a young infant and I am so excited to have it for my new bundle of joy– especially since we will be in the winter months when he arrives and I will want to make sure he is warm enough (or that my husband doesn’t crank the heat too high). 


The night-light glow is not only a nice feature, but the changing colors give a visual cue as to whether the room is at a good temperature. This is a great feature, because when you’re half asleep during a middle-of-the-night feeding and halfway across the room, you may not be able to see the temperature, but you will know at a glance if you’re in the “green zone” (yellow, actually :-)). 

I first plugged it in at my computer desk (see picture to the right) and when it glowed dark orange my husband was convinced it was because it was next to the computer. I have since moved it to my night stand, since baby will be sleeping in our room the first little while, and we still aren’t in the yellow zone, we are slowly working on lowering the temperature in the house (my husband is convinced he should dress in a T-shirt and shorts year round, but we are working on getting him to add an extra layer, keep the house a little cooler and he might even be pleased when he sees some energy savings as well!). 

Additional information about the Gro-egg™

Color Changing Digital Room Thermometer

The Gro-egg™ color changing digital room thermometer is another clever innovation from the people who brought you grobag® baby sleeping bags.
Room temperature is vital in creating a safe sleeping environment for your baby and should be maintained at 61-67°F to help reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
The Gro-egg™ glows yellow if the room temperature is within recommended guidelines (61-67°F). If the room temperature is outside this range, the Gro-egg™ acts as a visual reminder for you to take action to cool or heat the room, or to adjust the baby’s bedding or clothing.
Every baby’s home should have a Gro-egg™ room thermometer and it is ideal for use with grobag® baby sleeping bags to help you to monitor the temperature of the room where your baby is sleeping.

Key Features:

  • Simple to use room thermometer that changes color
  • Digital room thermometer with permanent ‘back-lit’ LCD readout
  • Provides a soft ‘nightlight’ glow
  • Power adaptor included
  • Instructions and safe sleep guide enclosed

  67. this would be so great to have. I hate laying in bed trying to decide if I should check to see if the kids are cold/hot, checking, and then checking again later. This would save a few trips (maybe).

    We have the bumbo seat and loved it when the little ones are just learning to sit.

  68. I love that the grobag comes with temperature ratings, a room thermometer and all sorts of other information to help you keep your baby comfortable!
