What tog single duvet for toddler?
« on: September 29, 2009, 21:59:49 PM »
DD is in a bed and currently using a 4 tog cot bed duvet..but it is too small for the bed and winter is coming (it does get cold here)so going to get a standard single duvet but looking here the lowest togs are 10-13.5 and seems like a huge jump form the 2-4 tog gro-bags and quilts so wondering what tog quilt should I get for her..can get some in the US where I am sure they would have  lighter togs?
Any advice appreciated?

bumping up for you- don't use togs as a measurement in the US...

Thanks again cathie..DD is actually out of the grobags now but used them right up til she was able to remove them...you see they were 2 togs at the most and now I want to get a duvet and the lowest tog I could find was 10.5...seems a lot heavier.
Thanks for all your help though!

I was a bit suprised when I started looking at single duvets after cot ones, too. But then I did find a few places that do single 4 or 4.5 tog duvets. Try John Lewis online, for one, (http://www.johnlewis.com) - there is a 4.5 tog single duvet for 8.

Or else, what I almost did (before I found a 4.5 tog one on a sale in our local department store ata  bargain price!!) was to buy a 'seasons' one, where you get a 10 tog and a 4 tog toegther that you can use separately, and then clip together for super-warmth in the winter. And just use the 4 tog bit for now, and the heavier one when they get older, since presumably, there comes a point where they need more togs to be warm enough, just like an adult.

Its all a bit irrelevant for us, anyway, since DD is currently going hrough a phase of kicking off the duvet and removing her pjyamas (AND nappy!!) before going to sleep. So am wondering why I bothered  ::)

Oh thanks caty...thats a great idea on the season one..will look intot he john lewis one too...great help, Thanks.
My DD kicks of her duvet too but luckily thats all..she did go through a striping phase but luckily It didnt last long and she could only manage to take off certain things...pj bottoms esp so put on a long nightdress...a vest with buttons at the crotch stopped the nappy removal! Hope it ends for you soon!
Thanks again!
