Swaddling your new born with their arms close to their chest keeps them snug and secure. A feeling that helps them settle and enjoy a peaceful sleep. Swaddling helps reduce the startle reflex which can wake your baby during the night, so it can help the whole family enjoy a good night's sleep.
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.
Garments are given a TOG rating according to the warmth they provide. Basically the higher the TOG, the warmer the product.
To help parents understand which TOG values are right for differing room temperatures, a set of guidelines has been established as per below:
0.5 TOG – room temperature: above 26 °C
1.0 TOG – room temperature: 23-24 °C
2.0 TOG – room temperature: 20-22 °C
2.5 TOG – room temperature: 16-19 °C
It is important to check your baby regularly to ensure that they are comfortable and that they do not overheat.
