The Love to Dream Sleep Bag 2.5 TOG is the safer alternative to loose blankets & sheets, which can cover your child’s face or fall off in the night, leaving your child cold.
The Love to Dream Sleep Bag features a built-in quilted blanket, with 100% natural cotton outer & lining, for added warmth in cooler temperatures.
The Story Behind Love to Dream.
Back in 2008 Hana-Lia Krawchuk gave birth to her beautiful son Elijah. Like many of us, Hana and her husband had trouble getting their newborn son to sleep. 18 months later and hundreds of dollars down the drain on sleep solutions; they were still sleep deprived having not found a single product to help their son.
Trial and error, and a mother’s intuition led Hana to a possible solution to their problem. She noticed that Elijah always seemed to sleep better with his arms up and after much research she found medical studies that seemed to back up her solution.
She found that babies who have access to their arms during sleep were sleeping better due to the ability to self-soothe. This went against everything she was taught about wrapping your baby’s arms by their side.
Luckily Hana was an experienced fashion designer and was able to use her skills to design the swaddle. She spent many weeks refining and sampling the first version of the Love to Dream Original Swaddle Up and upon release the swaddle sold out in two weeks!
Since then millions of parents across the world have come to learn and trust the many benefits that the Love to Dream range brings.

How should I dress my baby under the Love To Dream Sleep Bag 2.5 TOG?
Overheating has been linked to SIDS so it is very important to ensure your little one does not overheat.
The Love To Dream Swaddles and Sleep Bags have been designed to eliminate multiple layers of wrapping and bedding.
The table below provides you with guidelines* around how to dress your little one based on the room temperature.
*Please note: It is really important that you take into account all external factors when determining how to dress your baby, including the type of clothing that the baby has on, the babies general health and wellbeing, the temperature of the babies bedroom and if this may change throughout the night or day. All of these factors may vary in the same way as it does for adults. The table provided below should be used as a guide only & the carer needs to use their own discretion when dressing their baby for sleep time.
Is it safe to use a blanket over the sleeping bag?
We recommend that it is safest to avoid all loose blankets in the cot and instead add extra layers underneath your Love to Dream Sleeping Bag. Please refer to the guide on how to dress your baby.
If you do choose to use a blanket it is crucial that you follow SIDs and KIDs guidelines in relation to using blankets in the cot.
What is the TOG rating?
The TOG measurement, typically used in Europe, refers to the approximate warmth of the product by measuring the thermal insulation provided by its material.
TOG rating uses an ascending scale from cool & lightweight products at 0.2 TOG to warm & cosy products at 2.5 TOG. Basically, the higher the TOG, the warmer the product.
