How To Dress Your Baby Underneath a Sleeping Bag

How To Dress Your Baby Underneath a Sleeping Bag

As a new parent, you’ll just be learning how to dress your baby and at what temperature their little bodies need to stay at. Sleeping Bags are designed for comfort and safety, however, a little one needs to be dressed appropriately underneath to ensure they won’t get too cold or overheat. Depending on the TOG of the sleeping bag and the temperature of the room, there are different layers that will need to wear.

We’ve designed a collection of different sleeping bags from the popular Clever Sleeping Bag, which is perfect for babies that like to sleep on the go, to the Mini MORI Panda Sleeping Bag that is great for a simple sleeping solution or the Forest Sleeping Bag for those winter months. All our sleeping bags are crafted from organic and natural materials, which help baby to regulate their temperature and stay comfortable all night long.

This TOG baby sleeping bag has been designed for the cooler months to ensure your little one is always warm, and never wakes uncovered and feeling a chill. As the thicker TOG is crafted for the winter months, we advise that you do not use this midweight option if your baby’s room temperature is above 22°c. We would advise to opt for a lightweight sleeping bag (see below) instead, however, TOG choice is at the parent’s discretion and if you do opt for the midweight it is advisable to dress baby is just a nappy.

        BABY IN SLEEPING BAG IN COTDressing underneath Lightweight 0.5 TOG Sleeping Bag

        This TOG baby sleeping bag has been designed for summer and the warmer months to ensure little one is covered and comfortable, but doesn’t yet too hot. If you are using the 0.5 TOG for your baby, it is advisable to not use in temperatures under 20°c as your little one will still feel cold and need to be dressed in too many layers, making them feel uncomfortable. If the room temperature is below this, we advise a midweight sleeping bag is used.

        Between 21 - 23°c:

        - Long Sleeve Bodysuit

        Between 24 - 27°c:

        - Short Sleeve Bodysuit

        If your baby’s room temperature is above 27°c (this will most likely occur if you live in a hot country or during those very hot and humid summer days and nights) we advise that you do not use a sleeping bag as it is dangerous.

        *All information given are guidelines, and parents should use their own discretion when deciding which TOG is suitable for their baby, and how to dress their little one underneath the sleeping bag with consideration to room temperature.
