How to Choose a Sleep Sack
What is a TOG rating?
The TOG indicates how warm the bag is, and relates to how many
blankets the bag equals. 
The higher the TOG, the warmer the bag. For example, a TOG 2.1
bag is equivalent to just over 2 blankets.

WHICH TOG IS BEST FOR ME?
The chart below can be helpful with this issue, but is just a guideline.
Consider factors such as the clothing the baby is wearing, the temperature of the infant’s room, the baby’s health, and the amount of bedding necessary to keep an individual infant warm- this may vary as it does for adults. Ensure your baby does not overheat by checking him regularly.
 
WHY DON’T THE BAGS HAVE ARMS?
Bags are designed without arms as it helps air to circulate ensuring your baby doesn't overheat. The arms and head are the main ways babies release heat to avoid overheating. As long as your baby's core is warm, then you don't need to worry about cooler arms and cold hands. A wool bodysuit is a good base layer. However, if you do want a bag with arms, we have a few styles.
 
WHAT SIZE SHOULD I BUY?
The sizes are based on average sized babies, so do consider that if your baby is extra big or small for her age. We recommend that you buy the right size for your baby now, rather than worrying about it lasting for next season. It's important that your bag fits well, so there is no danger of baby slipping into a bag that is too loose.
