Sleepy heads deserve Boo's luxury pillow, with these 2 spare cases
For little sleepy heads, this Pack of 2 Children’s Bamboo Pillowcases is the perfect choice. Silky smooth against their sensitive skin, it is antibacterial, antifungal and will have them waking up feeling as fresh as a daisy each and every morning. A good night’s sleep is vital to a child’s growth and brain development. So, as parents, it is our responsibility to ensure that they get it. Cotton bedding could actually have adverse effects on your child’s wellbeing. Not only does it provide an
accommodating environment for dust mites, it could also retain chemicals used during the growing and treatment of it. This, scarily, has the potential to be absorbed by your little one’s skin each and every night.
To have confidence that your child is safe and getting just the right amount of sleep, the simplest solution would be to replace their bedding with a naturally clean, non-toxic, unbleached, organic fibre instead. 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. It is therefore the perfect choice for children. Not only does it inhibit the growth of bacteria, it will wick away moisture, regulate temperature and naturally resist odour.
Cleverly crafted from the perfect combination of 60% bamboo and 40% cotton, these luxurious Bamboo Pillowcases are exceptionally gentle with your loved one. Naturally soft and hypoallergenic, it really is the most comfortable bedding you will ever come across.
Saying Boo will never be scary again!
Bugs will bite the dust
It is a common misconception that dust mites only live in dirty homes. This is absolutely not the case. A Mere 1 gram of dust can house up to 19,000 of the tiny creatures  and more than 12 million people have developed an allergy as a result . The average adult sheds approximately 1.5 grams of dead skin per day, which is enough to feed a million of the little blighters . Cleaning may, in many cases, aggravate the problem. Causing dust to fly upwards into the air, it may simply land on other surfaces or cling to fabrics. Additionally, because dust is a combination of various substances, many standard cleaning products are unable to remove it completely.
Allergy UK found that almost 60% of people with allergies suffered as a result of dust mites. They describe it as “home fever”, which has symptoms incredibly similar to hay fever. Sneezing, itchy eyes and a runny nose can all be signs. However, if your child struggles to concentrate in the morning, is consistently rubbing their eyes and feels groggy or generally unwell, it could be that they too suffer with this frustrating condition.
Bamboo fabric does not provide an appropriate living environment for dust mites and, as such, they are naturally repelled by it. So, you can have confidence that your child will remain healthy, happy and well-rested.
Mites; you won’t see them for dust!
Don’t stick with what you’ve got, try bamboo
It’s a strange thought that the bedding you choose for your child could actually impact greatly on their health. But that is absolutely the case. As parents, we always want what’s best for our child and, as such, something as simple as choosing the right bedding should be a priority.
Aside from all of the health benefits to be gained from switching to bamboo, it is also the far greener option. It doesn’t need chemicals and requires only a small amount of water to grow. Additionally, it absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air and releases more oxygen than cotton does. Boo Living sources all of its bamboo from an eco-friendly FSC accredited supplier, with high conservation values.
Soft, hypoallergenic, antibacterial and antifungal, it repels dust mites and feels silky smooth against the most sensitive of skin. The clever layering used in bamboo bedding means that it is thermo regulating and will keep your child at the optimum temperature all year round. It is even moisture wicking, so if your little one sweats a lot during the night the moisture will be pulled away from them and drawn to the exterior of the fabric. Because it doesn’t harbour bacteria either, it will feel as though your baby is going to sleep in clean and fresh sheets each and every night.
Put those worries to bed!
