Duvets for Toddlers - Considerations
Below you will find the main features and characteristics to look out for in duvets for toddlers. This duvets for toddlers advice should be used as a base and suggest to do your own online analysis of the toddler duvets as well.
Toddler Duvet Tog
Before we explain what Tog is suggested for toddlers we may need to fully understand what Tog means in the duvet world.
The Tog measure or rating is the measure of thermal insulance of a unit area. British duvets are rated from 1.5 Tog (cool) and the way up to 16.5 Tog (extra warm).
So now you may be asking what Tog duvet for toddlers should I get? well, it is suggested that toddler duvets should not exceed 4 or 4.5 Togs as small children cannot effectively regulate their own body temperature. You will also have to judge for yourself as depending on the heating of your house this can also affect which Tog is best but you can't go wrong around a 4 Tog.
This one is a no brainer, duvets for toddlers need to be washable, preferably machine washable and quick drying in nature. I think we don't need to get into all the possible reasons as to how it can become dirty or messy.
Materials & Anti-Allergy
The materials you would be looking for need to make the toddlers duvet, lightweight, durable, breathable, hypoallergenic but yet still very soft and comforting. Some materials include:
Bamboo - has a texture similar to a cashmere/silk blend, excellent at absorbing moisture (up to twice that of cotton). Bamboo fibre also has natural antibacterial elements and is an eco-friendly and bio-degradable material making it an excellent choice for duvets for toddlers.
Cotton - is very comfortable, inexpensive and versatile.
Polyester - a very resistant material (resists abrasion and wrinkling) making it a very durable and long-lasting material. Polyester is easy to wash and quick drying in nature.
Down - the fine feathers are a touch of luxury with that can keep your child warm in winter and cool in summer. The luxurious life does not come cheap but maybe an investment going forward.
