Being a parent you might want to give your child every comfort there on earth. However, you might not know that even the most luxurious bedding that you selected for your kid may not be a healthy place to sleep. As infants and small kids spend a lot of time sleeping or playing on the bed, thus resting set-up and bedding arrangement holds a crucial place in this matter. Hypoallergenic bedding is the most preferred choice of parents as it provides several benefits to the children sleeping on it.
If your kid is suffering from allergies frequently, you must not give any second thought to it, opt for hypoallergenic bedding. Allergies are mainly troublesome at night because of dust mites and tiny insects that like to cling to our sheets, blankets, mattresses and pillows. Hypoallergenic bedding is organic and chemical free, and is smart choice for kids not just for those who have chemical sensitivities or allergies.
Why to choose hypoallergenic organic bedding over other options?
Organic hypoallergenic bedding is made using natural material like silk and bamboo that have the inbuilt qualities to keep allergy causing insects and microorganisms away from your child, while sleeping. On the other hand, the other manufactured bedding options available in the market, might have dyes and other unsafe material used in its making that can cause harm to your kid’s delicate skin.
Other reasons to select hypoallergenic bedding for your kid:
Hypoallergenic: These organic bedding protects your child from various allergens while sleeping. The elimination of dust mites, bed bugs and other harmful microbes diminish your kid’s chances of coughing, wheezing, sneezing, chest congestion, itching and obtaining watery eyes all through the night. All such symptoms may keep your little one disturbed whole night, keeping him/her irritable the following day.
Healthy breathing: As organic bedding is made up of natural fibers, it helps kids to breathe properly while sleeping and save the kid from developing any breathing problem in the future.
Warmth of nature: The softness, warmth and the coziness of your lap can be offered to your child by organic bedding made with 100% sustainable bamboo and silk. This also makes them environmentally friendly!
Moisture wicking: Besides being hungry or wet, babies or small kids can at times wake at night due to feeling too warm or too cold. The new bamboo and silk bedding have the special moisture wicking qualities that give warmth in winter and coolness in the summer. The bamboo or silk fiber combats symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and irregular body temperature.
Safe: Organic bedding has special anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-mold properties giving your child a complete protection.
Durable: As children bedding gets soiled and dirty soon, these organic hypoallergenic beddings are most durable and easily washable giving your baby a healthy sleep for long.
Here are a few tips that you must keep in mind while buying bedding for your kid:
- Kids bedding like comforter, bed sheet, pillow covers, etc. must be made up of 100% organic cotton or bamboo and should be hypoallergenic.
- A thread count of 180 or more is said perfect for children.
- Limit your choices to bedding that you will use yourself as it would be unwise to select something extremely fancy for your kid that you yourself not comfortable using.
- Avoid synthetic fibers that cause irritation to kids.
So, do not let your little one toss and turn anymore, get hypoallergenic organic bedding!
