Warmer weather means it’s time to reassess your bedtime routine to ensure you and your little ones have the most comfortable of slumbers. From switching to lighter layers to choosing cooling linen and cotton, discover our top tips.
1. Swap to lighter layers
A fluffy duvet, or Summer-friendly sleeping bag, can significantly transform sleep quality during warmer months.
While still being incredibly lofty to ensure you don’t get too hot during the night, our heavenly duvets will cocoon you in sleeping-on-a-cloud softness. For Summer, we recommend a 3, or 4.5 tog, for a breathable layer.
Did you know? The British Sleep Council recommends bedrooms should be an optimum 16-18°C. Keeping curtains closed during sunny days will help achieve that.
For little ones
Keep them the perfect temperature in our warm-weather sleeping bags, crafted from outstanding-quality cotton. Opt for our lowest 0.5 tog rating – which is not wadded – and, instead, comes in our cool, textured seersucker.
Top tip: Keep the windows open during the day to get the air circulating for a fresh nursery, come bedtime.
2. Add bright whites
Nothing replicates that cool, crisp feeling quite like the colour white. The go-with-everything shade is synonymous with Summer living and creates a beautiful, blank canvas for your sleep sanctuary.
Our bed linen is truly timeless and will instantly refresh your bedroom. From pretty pom-pom trims and matelassé techniques to vintage floral designs, these lightweight styles are both pretty and practical, keeping you comfortable as the mercury rises.
Did you know? Linen absorbs 20% of its weight in moisture and becomes softer with each wash, making it a true investment piece that you’ll love for years.
For little ones
Create a calming space to help the smallest member of the family drift off more easily with soothing white accessories. Hang our Kimbo & Indy Musical Mobile over their cot. It gently plays Brahms’ Lullaby to lull them into a peaceful slumber.
Did you know? With Velcro fastenings, each sleeve of the Noah’s Ark bumper is designed to wrap around the bars of the cot, which means air can flow freely through the cot.
3. Switch to linen and cotton
Summer nights call for breathable fabrics which keep you, and baby, the perfect temperature. From pure-cotton styles to crisp linen, discover the key to a blissful night’s sleep.
Whether you favour floaty nighties and matching robes, or prefer short PJ sets, our beautiful designs feature pleats, embroidery, tassels and tie details for an extra-special finishing touch.
“I love the entire nightwear collection, but my favourites, of course, are always the white pieces! Our beautiful short-sleeve cotton robe and matching nightdress (below) with a delicate fern print are real favourites the season – a great warm-weather duo, and ideal to pack for a holiday.”
For little ones
Get them ready to dream big this Summer with super-soft seersucker styles. Our pure-cotton sleepsuits prevent baby from sweating, or overheating in the night, thanks to the natural fibre’s moisture-wicking properties.
“With shorts, tees and PJs all made in our beautifully breathable premium cotton, little ones will be able to keep cool on even the warmest nights at home, or on holiday.”
