    Grobag 0.5 or 1.0 tog for summmer

    Hi,

    I have my 20 week old in a 2.5 tog grobag. I now need to buy a couple for the spring and summer months. What is more appropriate 1.0 tog or 0.5 tog?

    Thanks

    I prefer to use a 0.5 tog and not have the air-con blasting. In the cooler months (by HK standards) you can just put them in a full length babygro.

    It depends whether you use air conditioning. if yes, i use 1.0 tog, cos after midnight, the body gets colder & it'll be safer to use the 1 tog. my building is currently doing external walls renovation & they take down all the air-cons, and i'm using 0.5 for my 2 yo.

    the best thing to do is, follow the thermometer that comes with the grobag, and follow recommendation for the rm temp in baby's rm.

    (i have 2 of each tog for throughout the yr use. if you're planning to use grobag until your baby is beyond 12 mths, i think it's worth it to invest in all 3 thickness.)

    Grobag recommends 1.0T with the air-conditioning on and 0.5 without

    We sell a range of Grobags on ShopinHK

    one more thing is, you can adjust the warmth by adjusting the clothing for your child. when the weather was cooler, bb was wearing sleepsuit (with footies), plus 1 tog. now the it's warmer, she's just wear pyjama top & 0.5tog (the rm is actually 25C at night, so quite warm)

    Has anyone had any luck in finding stock of 0.5 tog bags? I checked just before the holiday and nothing.

    With aircon on we use 1.0 tog, I can't sleep without air con on in the summer! Without aircon I would say no grobag necessary.
