Which tog should I choose for my baby’s sleep bag?

Jungle or Butterflies?

Sleep bags are designed to keep babies the perfect temperature all night long, which means no more kicking off blankets!

Many parents feel that sleep bags help their babies to sleep better, and Verbaudet’s wide selection of sleep bags cater to every taste and budget.

If you’re feeling confused – don’t despair!
We’re here to answer any FAQ’s you may have surrounding sleep bags.

What is a Sleep Bag?

A sleep bag is like a wearable blanket for your baby that is more convenient than traditional blankets or sheets. Sleep bags have neck and armholes and are worn by your baby at night to help keep them the right temperature whilst they sleep.

Are Sleep Bags safe?

Using a sleep bag that fits properly is one of the safest types of bedding for your baby. Whilst they have freedom to move around, the neck and armholes - when correctly sized – prevent your baby from slipping in or wiggling out.

Why should I choose a Sleep Bag instead of blankets and sheets?

Sleep bags stop your baby from kicking off their covers, getting cold and waking themselves (and you) up! They keep your baby at a comfortable temperature whilst they sleep, giving you peace of mind, and when correctly sized, they can prevent your baby from getting tangled up in sheets.

Sleep bags can also help with your baby’s night time routine, helping bring a sense of calm and familiarity – even when they’re not sleeping at home.

What should my baby wear
under a Sleep Bag?

What you dress your baby in depends on the tog of the sleep bag you are using and the temperature of your nursery.

You can refer to our guide to see how to adjust your baby’s clothing in accordance to room temperature and the tog of your sleep bag. However, please keep in mind that all babies are different, and you will soon decipher what your baby is most comfortable in.

You can check your baby’s temperature by using a thermometer, or by feeling your baby’s chest/back of their neck.

Is there any danger my baby could become too hot in a Sleep Bag?

It is unlikely your baby will be too hot, providing you choose the right tog for your nursery temperature and your baby is not wearing too many clothes underneath. It is best to use a Sleep Bag without sleeves or with detachable sleeves, and never to use any clothing or bedding in which baby can become entangled.

You can decrease your baby’s amount of clothes and the tog of your sleep bag if they are unwell and have a temperature. If in doubt, contact your doctor.

Sleep bags are one of the safest ways for your baby to sleep - provided all instructions are adhered to.

What is the right TOG?

Which weight of Sleep Bag
should I buy?

Vertbaudet’s 2 tog Sleep Bags can be used during autumn, winter and spring, up until the summer nights become warm. If your nursery is usually below 18°C, we recommend a 3 tog sleep bag.

If your nursery is 21°C or above, we recommend a 1 tog for year-round use. Our 1 tog sleep bags are also perfect for use during the summer when the nights are getting warmer.

How do I choose the right
sleep bag for my baby?

It is important to pick the correct sleep bag to guarantee a safe and comfortable temperature for your baby’s sleep. You should consider the temperature of the nursery (ideally 18-20 degrees) and the clothing your baby is wearing under their sleep bag.

‘Tog’ refers to the thermal resistance of your baby’s sleep bag. The higher the tog, the more warmth the sleep bag will retain; the lower the tog, the less heat they’ll retain.

Our sleep bags adhere to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 guidelines, meaning the product contains no substances that are toxic or harmful to your baby’s skin.

Winter Sleep Bags

Our winter sleep bags (3 tog) ensure a safe, comfortable night’s sleep for your baby, even during the coldest nights.

They are a great improvement on conventional bedding and sheets as they ensure a constant temperature without you having to worry about your baby kicking off their sheets and getting cold.

Our winter sleep bags are generously padded, making them ideal for winter and for nurseries below 18 degrees.


Summer sleep bags

Summer baby sleep bags ensure your baby stays cool and comfortable on warmer nights.

All of our summer sleep bags are 1 tog or below and are suitable for nurseries above 21 degrees.


Year-round sleep bags

Our year-round sleep bags are 2 Tog and help your baby to maintain a constant temperature through the night. They are suitable for use all year at room temperatures between 18-21 degrees.
