Why Baby Sleeping Bags?
They offer a safer sleep environment for your little one. No loose blankets to worry about kicking off, which means fewer sleep disruptions for both baby and you. They also provide a consistent level of warmth, ensuring your little one stays snug all through the night or nap time. 

What is a TOG rating?

When to Use 2.5 TOG

This TOG rating provides ample warmth to keep your baby comfortable during cooler nights. It's your go to for use in most seasons, except for very hot or very cold days. Shop our 2.5 TOG Sleeping Bags here.

When to Use 1 TOG
A 1 TOG baby sleeping bag is suitable for use for the warm Summer days, when room temperatures are between 21-23°C. It provides moderate insulation without overheating your babe. Shop our 1 TOG Sleeping Bags here.

When to Use 0.5 TOG

Useful Tips

  • Don't use any blankets or duvets over the sleeping bag. This can cause overheating or pose suffocation risks.⁠
  • Dress your little one in light, breathable clothing under the sleeping bag. Avoid overdressing to prevent overheating.⁣⁣⁣⁠
  • Check regularly to make sure your baby isn't too hot or too cold by feeling their chest or back – hands and feet might be chilly, but that's normal.
  • Having a thermometer handy is always a good idea!
