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.
