Our Simple Summer Sleep Solutions

Love To Dream helps your baby enjoy sweet summer snoozes


It’s the best way to end your summer’s day: a solid snooze. Here’s how to make that good night’s sleep a sure thing for your baby (and you!)

Sweet summer days

Childhood is a fleeting experience. It seems like the baby days fly by in an instant. There’s a parenting adage about “the days are long, but the years are short”. That’s never more true than during summer.

Summer and sleepless nights

As a parent to a little bub, you know there’s one thing longer than the days - it’s the sleepless nights. Making sure your little one gets enough sleep enables you to, too. That’s why we’ve created the sweetest summer sleep solutions.

Smiles and snoozes

Sleep is an integral part of your baby’s routine and development. For parents, it’s the foundation for sanity. A solid snooze makes the whole family smile. During the hot summer months, however, things can get a little stressful. Your child’s summer night’s sleep can be disrupted, because:

  • They’re thirsty: In the madness of summer heat, it’s very easy for your little one to dehydrate. Make sure your baby has consumed enough liquids throughout the day, whether that be breast milk, formula, or water, depending on their age.
  • They’re too hot: Heat and an elevated room temperature could be stopping them from falling - and staying - asleep.
  • They’re disturbed: Mosquitoes, bugs, and summer evening noises could be waking them up. Banish the buzz of the outside world by installing an electric fan in your child’s nursery. Be sure to never point the fan directly at your child while they sleep.
  • Their room is too warm: Always keep a handy temperature gauge in your baby’s nursery. For an extra layer of cool and comfort, keep the curtains closed and blinds down during the daytime.
  • Their room is too cold: Yes, this really happens! Temperatures can change - and sometimes quickly! - from day to day, night to night, and hour to hour, during summer. Finding a versatile sleep getup that caters for varying temperatures is a must.
  • They’re uncomfortable: Thick blankets and uncomfortable clothing could lead to sleep disturbances.
  • Their sleepwear doesn’t work for summer: What your child wears when they go to bed after a glorious summer’s day out...matters more than you know.
The no-sweat summer sleep solution

As temperatures swing from sticky heat to cooling storms throughout summer, finding the right sleep solution for your baby is essential. That’s why it’s important to know about your baby’s bedtime garments’ Thermal Overall Grade.

Thermal Overall Grade

The Thermal Overall Grade is where the magic of sleeptime settles on the maths.

Also known as the TOG, the Thermal Overall Grade helps you match room temperature with garment warmth. Generally, the higher a garment’s TOG, the warmer the product will be. A higher TOG, however, does not mean the garment you’ve chosen will be thicker.

TOG and varying temperatures

During the summer season, you - and your baby - need something that caters for the fluctuating temperatures that summer nights bring. Check the temperature in your child’s nursery and select the right TOG for those funny summer nights:

As you can see from the list above, the Love To Dream 0.2 TOG rated products are the ultimate snooze solution for summer. Versatile and superb for adjusting to varying temperatures, our summer-sweet 0.2 TOG products are perfect for fending off skin irritations, cuddling down for cool, and keeping the sticky sweat at bay. The Love To Dream 0.2 TOG rated range enables the natural regulation of body temperature. As your baby’s natural body temperature changes throughout the night, they’re not left to sweat in summer, or shiver when the night cools down.

Summer sleep choices

The Love To Dream range turns your summer sleep dilemma into a simple one. The Love To Dream range caters for every stage of your baby’s development, from the Swaddle to the Sleeping Suits.

Swaddling up for summer

You’ve perfected the art of the swaddle, but summer presents a whole new dimension to this sleep necessity. Swaddling helps your baby feel calm, secure, and sleep better.
