Hi, dd currently has summer duvet which isn't going to be warm enough as the weather gets colder. Just wondered if anyone knew what TOG I should be looking at? She is in a single bed and our house isn't v warm except when I win the war of the boiler and manage to convince 'it's not cold' husband to put the heating on!! Thanks
the maximum tog recommended for a child in a single bed is 10.5tog whereas the maximum for a cot bed/junior bed is 4.5tog. (something to do with the relative surface area covered by the child). My 2 have 4.5 tog when it is warmer and 10.5tog in the winter (we live in Scotland)
Get a 3-in-1 quilt: 4 tog plus 9 tog, which can button together to make a 13 tog. We have two sets between the three dc, and find them the best option. All the dc also have a blanket at the foot of their beds.
And don't underestimate the added value of wooly bedsocks!
Thank you for all of the replies, didn't appreciate the difference between single bed and toddler bed. I like the idea of putting a throw on but may invest in a thicker tog for the winter as she is funny about having anything different oh her bed - true OCD toddler behavior. Thanks again.
