How to protect your baby from allergies and skin conditions in bed

By , January 27, 2016 3:22 pm

Many babies and young children develop allergies that worsen at night . This is often caused by an allergic reaction to cotton polyester bed linen. Worse still the condition can be made much worse by a reaction to house mite droppings. In a recent expert report on allergies at home.

  • 58.9% of indoor allergy sufferers found their symptoms were worse in the bedroom. The authors suggest that this was due to dust mites in the bed, quoting figures that “the average bed harbours 2 million dust mites and the average pillow doubles in weight over a period of six months due to dust mite faeces”.
  • 16% of allergy sufferers said they wash bed linen every three weeks or less often, and 58% of those surveyed said they are washing at 30 or 40 degrees. This is two weeks longer than experts  recommends and at a temperature that they say does not kill any dust mites present.
  • 13% of allergy sufferers had had their current mattress for 11 years or more, and 3% kept theirs for 20 years or longer.

But what to do?
Thankfully there are some easy answers.

Firstly get Bamboo bedding protection for mattresses , pillows and duvets to put a barrier between your child and the dust mites.

Bamboo Bed Linen proven to help with Night Sweats

Many people suffer from overheating at night or night sweats. This can be a distressing , very uncomfortable condition which can seriously impact on restful sleep and overall health.
Regular sufferers should certainly see their doctor as this condition can be a symptom of some very serious illnesses. However for many people night sweats cannot be cured and its something they simply have to live with.

Natural Bamboo Bed Linen

The condition can be very much helped by sleeping in natural bed linen. Bamboo Bed Linen can make a huge  difference. It has huge advantages over cotton – Bamboo is softer, stronger, more lustrous, and three times more absorbent than cotton – it wicks away moisture, so it is cool in Summer and warm in Winter. The softness is ideal for babies and those with sensitive skin or allergic skin conditions. The structure of the Bambo Fibre uniquely wicks away moisture from the body extremely effectively, reducing the body’s temperature.

Here are a couple of testimonials to the effectiveness of Bamboo Bed Linen.

“Since you spend about a third of your life in bed (8 hours per day) and you loose the most sweat there (which causes itching which worsens skin problems) bedding is the most important part of trying to relieve skin problems. Temperature control, moist wicking and breathability is of great importance in this aspect. 100% Bamboo has proven to be the best fabric in all these aspects for the skin problems of H. MB Germany”

“We can confirm that the 100% bamboo has indeed provided a huge relief on the skin problems of H. He has a dust mite allergy and has atopic eczema. The duvet covers already made a difference and with the duvets and mattress topper the relief is even bigger.”
