What to think about before buying a duvet
When it comes to choosing a duvet, there are so many things to think about, including a couple of important safety aspects that shouldn't be ignored.
• From the tog and size to the type of cover you want, it can be hard to know exactly which type to choose for your tot.
• According to the NHS, duvets aren't recommended for infants under the age of one (12 months) as this could result in suffocation.
• Toddlers are advised to use a duvet of 4.0 togs or less. Younger children can't regulate their body temperatures, so you don't want to give them a duvet that's too heavy.
• Older kids can have any duvet up to 9.0 togs (for the winter months).
Another thing to consider is that your child should be in a toddler bed before using a duvet.
Are mermaid duvet covers a good gift?
We can understand how a regular duvet cover may not seem like an exciting gift for a child but with a magical touch like a mermaid design, it can transform a practical gift into a fun one. You could even pair it with a mermaid toy to take the theme further.
If your little one loves The Little Mermaid, whether it's the animated or live-action Disney film, you could get a duvet with that design or some The Little Mermaid toys too.
