The best baby sleeping bag: How do I find it?

The following factors are important when you choose the best sleeping bag: size, safety, TOG value, material and function. We will explain in the following paragraphs.

The right size baby sleeping bag

A sleeping bag in the right size is important to give your baby a safe and comfortable sleep. Often, baby sleeping bags have double sizes. You can determine which size you need by measuring the height of your baby. View our size table here. Pay attention: the baby sleeping bag must fit well around the neck. Also, it is important that the holes for the arms are not too big. At last, your baby needs to have plenty room to move around in the bottom.

A baby sleeping bag with the right TOG value

You choose a sleeping bag with the right TOG value by looking at the room temperature. The perfect temperature for the nursery is 18 degrees. However, this is not always possible. When the temperature drops, you need a higher TOG value. In this table you can find the right TOG values comparing with room temperatures. Every baby is different, so always makes sure to check your baby on a regular basis.
