Winter is horrid for waking babies and toddlers who find themselves cold after kicking off blankets in the cot. The answer? A sleeping bag. Safe, comfortable and warm, the whole family can have a good night’s sleep with these dreamy finds!

What is a TOG rating?

Obviously you’re going to consider the cute factor when selecting from this list, but you should also know about a sleeping bag’s TOG rating if you don’t already. 

A TOG rating indicates the sleeping bag’s level of warmth based on the thickness of the product. The higher the TOG rating, the warmer the sleeping bag will be for your bub on those cold winter nights. The warmth of your baby’s nursery will determine which rating of TOG you should dress them in for bed. You can find a helpful guide here.
