Let's dive into the world of TOG ratings! This is a term as a new parent you'll begin to hear as you shop different wearable blanket options for your baby and toddler. Understanding TOG ratings is crucial for selecting the perfect sleep bag to keep your child comfortable in different seasons and room temperatures.
The acronym "TOG" stands for "Thermal Overall Grade." TOG rating is a standardized measurement system used to determine the thermal performance and insulation properties of sleep bags, and wearable blankets.These ratings help you gauge how warm a sleep bag will be and ensure your child stays comfortable during sleep.
TOG ratings are expressed as numerical values, typically ranging from 0.5 to 3.0. The higher the TOG rating, the warmer the sleep bag. For example, a sleep bag with a TOG rating of 2.5 will provide more insulation and is suitable for colder temperatures, while a sleep bag with a TOG rating of 0.5 will offer minimal insulation and is better suited for warmer conditions.
Choosing the Right TOG Rating for Your Child
Selecting the right sleep sack TOG rating depends on several factors, including the room temperature and the season. While TOG helps us understand the warmth of a sleep garment, much like adults we all have our own preferences when sleeping. Many of our customers children prefer certain materials or weights for that perfect night sleep.
|Room Temperature Range|
24°C (75°F) and above
Please note that these temperature ranges are provided as a general reference. Room temperature preferences may vary for individuals, and it's important to consider your child's comfort and adjust accordingly.
To achieve optimal comfort, consider the TOG rating in conjunction with the clothing your child wears underneath the sleep bag. In colder weather, you can pair a higher TOG-rated sleep bag with warmer sleepwear, such as long-sleeved pajamas or a onesie. This combination ensures your child stays cozy throughout the night. We love to reference this chart from LouLou Lollipop to help you in dressing your child.
Understanding TOG ratings empowers you to select the most suitable sleep bag for your child, keeping them comfortably warm and safe during sleep. Remember to consider clothing layers, room temperature, and the season to create the perfect sleep setup tailored to your child's needs.
Choosing the Right TOG Sleep Bag for Your Child
WHAT SEASON: When choosing a sleep sack, it's essential to consider the current season and prevailing temperatures in Canada. The climate can vary greatly, so selecting the right TOG rating will help ensure your child's comfort.
Many families with opt for a 2.5 TOG sleep sack in the early Fall. This will take them through the winter months, and when their child outgrows it in the spring/summer they'll move into a 1 TOG sleep sack. If you have a warm house during the summer, a 0.5 Sleep Sack may be a better choice.
1 TOG Sleep Bags are one of the more versatile options and can be easily used throughout the seasons with the right clothing combo. Add sleepers, and diaper shirts, for colder winter nights, and strip down in the warmer summer months. This can also be a great choice for climate controlled homes.
WHAT SIZE: It's important to follow the sizing guidelines provided by the manufacturer or retailer. Consider the age, height, and weight recommendations to determine the most appropriate size. A sleep bag that is too big may pose safety hazards, while one that is too small may restrict movement and cause discomfort. Ensure that the sleep bag allows enough room for your child to kick their legs freely while maintaining a secure fit around the neck and arms.
WHAT TYPE OF MATERIAL: Look for materials that are soft, hypoallergenic, and gentle on your child's skin. Common material options include cotton, bamboo, and organic fabrics. Cotton is a popular choice as it is breathable and helps regulate temperature. Bamboo fabrics are known for their softness and moisture-wicking properties, making them suitable for warmer weather. Organic fabrics ensure that no harmful chemicals or pesticides are in contact with your child's skin.
WHAT FEATURES: Some sleep bags offer removable arms, optional swaddling features, or additional innovations for function and convenience. Double zippers can provide easy access for diaper changes during the night without fully removing the sleep bag. Look for features like snap closures, zip guards, or covered zippers that prevent discomfort or scratching.
You can also get a variety of styles such as a traditional sleep bag, or a wearable sleep suit with separated legs for early walkers.

Why Sleep Sacks?
Sleep sacks help baby transition out of swaddles while ensuring baby stays warm! Sleep sacks keep loose blankets out of the crib to reduce the risk of suffocation, or SIDS.
Wearable blankets are perfect for babies to toddlers! Transition into a sleep sack once baby starts rolling, and continue to use until at least one years old.
