Looking for one for my daughter who is 6. Is 13.5 enough? I havent a clue what we currently have and can’t find a label. She gets quite hot at night so will a 15 tog be too much?

13.5tog is too heavy. Mine have 4.5 tog in summer and 10.5tog in winter. The maximum recommended tog for a child in a single bed is 10.5tog

13.5 will be pretty warm I would have thought. Apparently when children are small the duvet traps more air around them and keeps them warmer. My DD is only 2 and uses a 4.5 tog on a cot bed. I read that for small children, 10.5 is enough on a single bed, but not sure what age that goes up to.

We all have 10.5 Spring & Autumn & 13.5 in Winter but I hate a hot house so heating doesn't go above 18°

A 10.5 tog. Sheet when it's really hot.

I do have a 15 tog one for winter when it gets really cold but we don't have the heating on as much as others and the house can get really cold.

If buying a new one it is well worth getting one of the 2 part ones that button together, usually one 4.5 tog and one 10.5 spot together make 15tog. Then you have all eventualities covered. I did the rounds the other week switching from the summer to autumn diverts duvets.

3.5 in summer, 13.5 in the winter.

Although for some reason my 12y/o refused to have the light duvet on in the summer as he was too cold. Including during the absolute height of the heatwave...

Dd1 (5/6) 13.5tog and gets cold under that. She was in a 4.5tog with blanket ove the hottest part of the summer.
Dd2(3) 4.5tog with occasional blanket. No heating on overnigh in wintwr unleas house falls below 12degrees. Average temp iwintwr is 16-18 degrees (15 just now).
So much depends on your child and how hot/cold they are.

Hers is quite thin at the mo and she complains she’s cold so think she has a summer one. Think I will go for a 10.5 tog. Thanks.
