How to use the Convertible Cotton Quilt


Learn how to transition from cot to bed with the Convertible Cotton Quilt


The Convertible Cotton Quilt is a unique year round quilt suitable for toddlers and preschoolers transitioning out of their cot, as well as kids transitioning to big beds. The Convertible Cotton Quilt comprises two TOG rated halves that zip apart for use in a cot (Demi size), and zip together to create a standard sized quilt for use in a bed. The Demi half can be used from 2 years of age for blanket training in the cot, or on a cot mattress on the floor, along with our Organic Toddler Pillow. Watch our video above to learn how to use the Convertible Cotton Quilt, or follow the steps below.

Step one

Choose between the Light (3.5 TOG) or Warm (7.0 TOG) half. Light is recommended for room temperatures of 21ºC or more. Warm is recommended for room temperatures of 20ºC or less.

Step two

For a cot from 2 years of age
If starting with the Single quilt; unzip the Quilt and choose the appropriate TOG-rated half. If starting with the Demi quilt; simply choose the appropriate TOG-rated half.

For a single bed
Fasten two demi halves together to form a standard single quilt. Choose the appropriate TOG-rated half to cover your child's body.

Step three

If the night starts out warm, use the Light half over your child's body. As the night cools, turn the quilt to use the Warm half.

Step four

If your child soils the bed, unzip and wash the soiled half only. Machine wash and tumble dry on low to maintain loft.

Tip: Have a spare Demi on hand when one Demi is in the wash.

Step five

Add a quilt cover if desired.
