Help your child to dream big with a bamboo duvet cover
As parents, we always have our child’s best interests at heart. We’d move mountains to ensure that they are healthy and happy. But did you know that the type of bedding we choose could actually have a great impact on their wellbeing?
We all know that children require a great deal of sleep. It is vital for the correct brain development and optimum concentration. However, a good night’s sleep is also essential to a child’s growth. If your little one struggles to wake up in the morning, is constantly rubbing their eyes or simply lacks concentration, the most basic of solutions could be to change their bedding. Children are at their most vulnerable when they sleep and it is our job, as parents, to ensure that we take the best care of them that we can.
It is a scary prospect to think that we could unwittingly be putting our child in danger. However, that could be the case for many of us. Pesticides used to grow certain materials, not to mention chemical treatments and dyes used in the production of fabrics have the potential to be absorbed by our child’s skin each and every night as they sleep. Bamboo does not require the use of pesticides or fertilisers due to its inherent internal antifungal, antibacterial agent. The same agent is found in fabrics made from bamboo fibres, which controls the bacteria growth on the skin. Woven mechanically without any nasty or harsh chemicals, it is the safest and most luxurious bedding fabric for your child.
Finely crafted from a combination of 60% bamboo and 40% cotton, this Boo Living Bamboo Duvet Cover is all natural and silky smooth against your little one’s sensitive skin, even if they suffer with eczema or other skin conditions.
You’ll sleep easy knowing that your child is!
Dust mites will flee
There’s no need to take offense; suggesting you have dust mites in no way means that we think you have a dirty home. Dust mites will find their way into even the cleanest of quarters. Standard cleaning procedures can propel dust into the air, only for it to settle on another surface or cling to fabrics. In addition, dust is made up of a variety of different substances, which many typical cleaning products are unable to eradicate. As little as 1 gram of dust can accommodate 19,000 of these creepy crawlies.
Dust mites feed on dead skin. The average adult will shed 1.5g of dead skin a day. This can sustain up to a million of these little creatures. More than 12 million people in the UK have allergies triggered by dust mites. Allergy UK refers to it as “home fever” because the symptoms are remarkably similar to that of hay fever. But even if your child simply has difficulty waking up in the morning, is groggy, feels generally unwell or cannot concentrate, it could be that they too are allergic.
Boo Living bamboo fibre is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, hypoallergenic and repels dust mites, making it the perfect solution to ensure your child stays healthy and always gets a good night’s sleep.
They may be small but they sure are mite-y; ensure that your child is protected!
Do your bit for the environment and put those health concerns to bed
On top of being antibacterial, antifungal and hypoallergenic, bamboo is the eco-friendly option. It requires no chemicals and very little water to grow. It also absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than cotton does and releases more oxygen into the environment. The growing of cotton requires extensive irrigation and chemical spraying. Bamboo does not need pesticides or fertilisers to grow, due to its inherent internal antifungal, antibacterial agent. The same agent is found in fabrics made from bamboo fibres, which controls the bacteria growth on the skin. Boo Living sources all of its bamboo from an eco-friendly FSC accredited supplier, with high conservation values.
It seems odd that bedding could have such a great impact on our child’s health. But it really is an important decision, and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. We all want what’s best for our child, and something as simple as changing their bedding could have a dramatic bearing on their life. Because bamboo requires no chemicals or pesticides to grow, we can have confidence that our little one is protected from absorbing harmful substances as they sleep at night.
Thermo-regulating and moisture wicking, bamboo bedding will keep your precious baby at the optimum temperature throughout the night, whether the height of summer or those dank and miserable days of winter. It will feel silky smooth against their sensitive skin and, because bamboo doesn’t harbour bacteria, sheets will stay crisp and fresh as though they have been washed each and every night.
Wrap your child up in bamboo!
