What is a TOG rating?
TOG stands for 'Thermal Overall Grade', which is a unit of measurement used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product, usually in the textile industry. Our sleep garments are given a TOG rating according to the warmth they provide. Basically, the higher the TOG, the warmer the product.
Why do we need a tog rating system?
Swaddles are a popular alternative to traditional blankets as they remove the need for additional bedding and sheets while a baby is sleeping. Swaddles and sleep bags are given a tog rating according to the warmth that they provide.
How does the tog rating system work?
The higher the value, the warmer the product. Swaddles and sleep suits from Love To Dream are available in 3 different tog ratings.
Summer and daytime naps, warmer weather and in rooms 24-27oC (69-74oF)
All year round, for standard rooms 20-24oC (61-68oF)
Cold temperatures, for cold rooms 16-19oC (61oF) and below
Very Cold temperatures, for cold rooms below 16oC (61oF)
**It is important to check your baby regularly to ensure that they are comfortable and that they do not overheat.**
The table below provides you with the guidelines around how to dress your baby based on the room temperatures.
The table is only a guide. All babies are different. The number of clothing layers may vary according to a baby's health, their physiology and the room temperature in the room. The care-giver must determine what is suitable.
Note: It is important to check your baby regularly to ensure that they are comfortable and that they do not overheat.
