Duvets - Everything You Need To Know
In the comfort of the womb, your baby spent a lot of time sleeping. They were surrounded by warmth, and lulled by your voice. Once born, your baby might sleep for most of the day and it only makes sense to consider these things to buy the best duvet for your baby and don't forget to get a good set of pillows and a quality mattress too!
It's important to note that babies less than one year old really mustn't be given duvets, as they can pose a risk of both overheating and suffocation. However, once a child has passed the 12-month mark, they should be fine with our cot duvets.
The scale ranges from 1 tog (the coolest) to 15 tog (the warmest).
• Summer = 1-7 tog
• Winter = 10.5 tog or above
There are two types of filling when it comes to duvets: natural and synthetic. Opt for a synthetic duvet if you suffer from allergies, while natural duvets are lighter but still equally as warm.
- Achieve higher levels of warmth with less filling
- Helps your skin breathe
- Can either be goose or duck feathers or combination of the two
- Can be unsuitable for allergy sufferers
- Comfortable and warm
- Much lighter alternative
- Great for allergy sufferers
- Easy to care for, can be washed more frequently than natural fibers
Note: You might notice more difference with the synthetic filling which why it's best for duvets and we only offer the best for your baby *wink
Duvet Care Tips
We recommend you use duvet covers and pillow covers on all of your bedding for an economical way to preserve the quality of your bedding.
- Always follow the care instructions found on a label sewn into a seam or on the original packaging.
- Dry and air your bedding thoroughly before returning it to your bed.
- Please note, natural fiber bedding cannot be dry cleaned as chemicals will damage the fillings.
