About Us

The Gro Company was founded in 2000, the result of two parents battle to get their baby to sleep at night. Practically unheard of in the UK, an Austrian sister-in-law introduced them to baby sleep bags, and after the amazing 12 hour sleep as a result, Grobag was born. Wanting to spread the word to other sleep deprived parents, our founders gave themselves a target of 10 years to get the UK from 0% to 80% baby sleeping bag usage, but managed it in 5.

We are known as the “official” baby sleep bag brand, having sold over 3 million Grobags worldwide. We now have over 13 different products to our name, all designed to make parenting easier. With offices in Exeter, Shenzhen and Melbourne we are a global business that always strives to put our consumers first.

We are proud that right from the start the company worked closely with the safe sleep charity the Lullaby Trust, and so safety and quality has always been important in what we do.
