What TOG should baby sleep in ?
What is the thermal index of a textile (TOG rating)?
The TOG is a universal unit of measurement quantifying the thermal resistance of a product, i.e. the quantity of air that passes through the textile from the inside to the outside.
The higher the TOG is, the more warmth the sleeping bag will provide (warmer and cozier). The lower the TOG is, the more air the sleep sack will let through (lighter and more breathable).

Identify the season the sleep sack will be worn
Just like us, it is possible that baby will prefer certain textiles over others depending on the season. In the fall, we often like to swap our cotton sheets for flannel sheets and in the spring, we easily opt for lighter sheet sets.
Observe your baby
Don't hesitate to select a product with a slightly higher or lower TOG if you know your baby is particularly cold or warm. His body temperature is the best barometer for your final choice. The most important thing is to make sure your baby never overheats
- What to wear under baby's sleep bag?
There are many options available to you. Some babies will like to be dressed only in a onesie while others (depending on the season) will like to wear pajamas under.

2. Why use a sleep sack instead of a blanket?
Because it's so much easier! But more importantly, to meet the new Health Canada safety recommendations; blankets should not be used when baby starts to move. Therefore, the sleep sack (also called wearable blanket) becomes the clever answer to safe sleep while providing a sense of comfort to baby.
3. My baby sweats easily, which material should I choose?
Bamboo fiber is known for its outstanding breathability. It evaporates excess moisture while maintaining the comfort of a tempered body heat.
