Choosing the Perfect Duvet

As the months grow slightly warmer after the winter, now would be a good time to start looking at your child's sleeping environment.

A bedroom should create a sense of calm and serenity. Part of being comfortable in a bedroom is of course down to the the core component - the bed! Chances are you've spent time deciding on a suitable bed and mattress for the requirements of your child. It's also a good idea to take just as much time looking at the different options for bedding.

Of course one of the main priorities is ensuring your child is warm through the night with a suitable duvet. Choosing the correct tog for you child's duvet is essential for providing comfort and safety.

Understanding "Togs"

All duvets have their own scale of comfort and warmth, this is nationally known as the "tog" rating. The tog rating refers to the effectiveness of the materials used inside the duvet, the rating of the tog uses an ascending scale ranging from a lightweight 1.5 tog, to 15 tog. It's good to know that sometimes, even if a duvet looks thick it may not necessarily be the warmest. The tog rating is also based on the fillings ability to trap air, which therefore provides more warmth. That's why natural fillings may feel lighter than synthetic fillings as are they are able to trap more air with less material.

Choose the Right Tog for a Child

When choosing a duvet for your child it's important to note that a child's duvet, should be no more than 10.5 tog. This is due to the fact that when children sleep, their body temperature is naturally higher - therefore a higher tog would be too warm. For younger children the recommended tog rating is lower, at 4.5 tog. Specialist blankets and cot quilts should be bought for children under 12 months old.
