"What would you recommend a November newborn to sleep in? Sleeping bag tog etc?"

It's really important that you check the temperature of your bedroom, ideally this should be 18°C. To check this you can use a card thermometer or you can use a digital one.

For temperatures between 17-20°C it's recommended that you use a 2.5 tog bag with a long sleeved sleep suit.

It's really important too that the sleeping bag is the correct size for you baby. You need to check the minimum weight and height for the bag. It's important to check your baby regularly to ensure they are not overheating, and to adjust their bedding according.
