Choosing the right Baby Sleeping Bag

Baby Sleeping Bags are becoming an ever more popular choice for parents. To help understand this item, we must first understand ‘tog’ (not your swimming ones!)

What is tog?

The tog rating of a baby sleeping bag determines its thickness and therefore how warm it keeps your baby or child. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the baby sleeping bag. As you will see in the table, the decision on which tog value to choose depends mainly on the temperature of the room.

Please note that these are guidelines only and you should always check your baby to make sure they don’t overheat. Remember it is better to be cool than hot and it is quite normal for baby’s hands and arms to be cool. A good tip is to feel the back of your baby’s neck…if it is damp then your baby might be too warm.
