Tog Ratings & Temperature Guides

What is a TOG rating?

 

 

 

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. Our sleep 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:

 

 

 

0.2 TOG - ideal for room temperatures between 24°C and 27°C
1.0 TOG - ideal for room temperatures between 20°C and 24°C
2.5 TOG - ideal for room temperatures between 16°C and 20°C
3.5 TOG - ideal for room temperatures below 16°C

 

 

 

The table below provides you with the guidelines around how to dress your baby based on the room temperatures.

The table is only a guide. All babies are different. The number of clothing layers may vary according to a baby's health, their physiology and the room temperature in the room. The care-giver must determine what is suitable.

 

 

 

Note: It is important to check your baby regularly to ensure that they are comfortable and that they do not overheat.
