Sleep is very important. If you want to enjoy a good night’s sleep, you should choose a right duvet tog. If the duvet is too warm or cold, adults will take corresponding measures timely. However, what duvet tog is best for your toddler since he doesn’t know how to add an extra blanket or sheet or get out from under covers?
Babies under 12 months
Due to the risk of overheating and suffocation, babies under 12 months are too young for both duvets and pillows. Make sure the child who is younger than 12 month’s sleep under a blanket without a pillow. You can slightly raise the head end of cot if you feel that he need to sleep on a slight angle.
From toddlers through childhood
If your child reaches the age of one, you can give him a lighter weight duvet of between 4 tog and 9 tog unless his bedroom is exceptionally cold. Children are small and their bodies trap more air, thus they will generally be warmer under the same duvet as an adult would be.
What duvet tog is best for a toddler?
Once your child reaches the age of one with a 4 tog duvet, you should always start your child off. As they grow, you need to give them a warmer one of either 4.5 tog, 6 or 10.5 tog, with anything higher often being uncomfortable for kids.
Try keeping your child sleep with a lower tog duvet as long as possible.
Although a lower tog is far lighter than a higher tog, you always should prepare a blanket in cold nights.
Try a children’s sleeping bag
Putting your toddler to bed in a children’s sleeping bag is another great tip for ensuring your toddler gets a great night’s sleep. It is a fantastic way of keeping your child warm.
