What TOG Should a child's duvet be?


The ideal duvet tog for a child lies between 4.5 to 5.0. Since children are small, their duvets tend to trap more heat than adults, so they don't need as much insulation as an adult might. 


However, it depends on the temperature of the room. If their room tends to get colder by night or for colder weather, you can use a duvet with a tog ranging from 9.0 to 13.5. You may even use duvets with different togs for summer and winter.


What tog quilt should a 3-year-old have?


Since toddlers tend to be more active in bed, like playing and wriggling around, they tend to get hotter than adults when sleeping. They cannot regulate their body temperature, so you typically have to give your child a thinner and lightweight duvet to tackle this problem. 


Generally, for a three-year-old, a duvet tog between 4.5 – 5.0 for the summer season and a tog of 7 or 7.5 for the winter season should be okay. Ensure that your child's room temperature is at an ideal range between 18-21 degrees, especially at night.


Can a 2-year-old have a duvet?

A 2-year-old child can use a duvet as it no longer poses a threat to their safety.  You can give your two-year-old toddler lightweight blankets and even a pillow or stuffed animal to sleep with. Ensure that the pillow isn't too big so that she or he can use it to climb out of the crib.


What tog duvet should a 5-year-old have?

Typically, it is considered okay for a five-year-old child to use a full-sized duvet. However, it is advisable to start with a lightweight duvet with a duvet between 4.5 and 9. You can change this up as the seasons change or if the room temperature significantly drops during certain occasions. 


It also depends on the child and his or her body temperature.
