When arranging a room for an allergy-sufferer, special attention should be paid to the place to sleep. The bed should not only be comfortable but also safe for the health of the child. Anti-allergic bedding and other appropriate accessories will ensure your child’s healthy sleep.
More and more children suffer from various types of allergies. Almost anything can cause an allergic reaction, however, the most common sensitization is caused by inhalation allergens, such as dust. House dust mites have the best conditions for reproduction among others in bedding. Complete removal of mites is impossible but the amount can be significantly reduced by special care for cleanliness (frequent washing of bedding, abrasion of furniture dust, cleaning the floor, etc.), airing the bedroom, getting rid of heavy curtains or carpets, as well as choosing an adequate bed, mattress and bedding set.
A place to sleep for a small allergy requires special attention and care. It’s best to choose a wooden or metal bed because it’s much easier to keep them clean than an upholstered sofa. The mattress should be made of synthetic materials. A good choice will be a foam mattress. You can additionally cover it with a special antiallergic cover that does not let bacteria and dust mites, or buy an antiallergic, cotton sheet, which is a barrier between the mattress and the child’s sensitive skin.
A cotton bedding set
A set of bedding with appropriate properties is very important. In this case, synthetic materials will not be a good option. Bedding should be made of 100% cotton, which permeates the air, has antibacterial properties, is pleasantly soft and delicate for the child’s skin. The offer of Fun with Mum online shop includes cotton beddings with filling. Their additional advantage is that they are two-sided – on both sides they were made of various color fabrics which gives them a very aesthetic look.
A bedding with antiallergic filling
The kind of filling of children’s quilts and pillows is equally important. As with the choice of a mattress, natural materials should be avoided. Be sure to avoid feathers and down which often cause allergies, and choose a breathable, anti-allergic silicone filling. It is also soft but much safer for health. It provides ventilation so that the skin maintains the right temperature.
In the interests of a child’s safe and sound sleep, the bedding should often be washed in a washing machine using delicate chemicals. Bedding with antiallergic filling can easily be kept clean because after washing it does not change its shape, preserving its elegant appearance.
Other textile accessories
If we want to buy a blanket for a child, choose one that is sewn from the highest quality materials. Blankets from Fun with Mum are made of original Minky fleece, 100% cotton and antiallergic filling. The offer also includes other products with a safe, antiallergic filling, such as bed covers, decorative pillows or cuddly pillows.
It should be remembered that dust quickly accumulates on textile products, such as pillows or bedding so it is better not to keep them on the bed during the day but to hide inside. It is recommended to choose a bed equipped with a special, practical drawer for storing bedding.
In the bedroom of a small allergy, it is recommended also to limit the number of plush toys. However each child’s room should be cozy, not like a sterile room, so we do not have to completely get rid of all the child’s favorite mascots. All you need to do is store them in a wardrobe or in closed containers and regularly wash them in a washing machine.
