Sleep & swaddle bags

Ensuring a suitable sleeping temperature holds special importance, particularly for young babies who haven't yet developed the ability to regulate their own body heat. Opting for winter sleep and swaddle bags crafted from natural fibers is a wise decision. These bags aid proper breathability for the skin and play a crucial role in preventing overheating. When choosing sleep solutions for your baby, it's great to consider the care and comfort that come with these natural options.

They not only help maintain the right temperature but also allow your baby to move comfortably, ensuring a peaceful and unrestricted sleep.

A helping hand adjusting the tog

When it comes to picking the perfect tog for your baby's sleep, it's all about the climate where you're at. If you're tackling the ever-changing British winter, aiming for a 2.5 Tog is your cosy companion. This magic number is your year-round go-to, ideal for temperatures ranging from 14 to 20°C

Now, let's chat about this TOG thing. Think of it like a sleeping bag's thickness level – the higher the TOG, the toastier it keeps your little one. Just like how we switch up our own bedding with the seasons, having a variety of TOG sleeping bags is a smart move. Follow our guide below:

  • 0.5 TOG: Best when room's around 25 – 28°C
  • 1.0 TOG: Perfect for a room at 21 – 23°C
  • 1.5 TOG: Just right when things hover between 20 – 22°C
  • 2.5 TOG: Designed for all year-round use and room temperatures between 14 - 20°C
