As we all know, babies have beautifully soft skin. However, their delicate skin isn’t yet accustomed to the harsh world and can be surprisingly sensitive. So, what’s a simple way you can protect your child’s skin?
The answer is to invest in a lovely set of bamboo bedding for their crib. You may be surprised by that answer, but a baby bamboo bed set can help sensitive skin in three ways.
- First, bamboo bedding soothes rashes.
- Second, bamboo baby blankets reduce dry skin.
- Third and finally, bamboo crib sheets discourage baby acne.
Bamboo Bedding Soothes Rashes
Rashes are one of the most common skin conditions for babies. For example, you’ve probably seen your fair share of diaper rashes as a parent. Well, what’s the first thing you learn to treat your newborn’s diaper rash? The answer is to change their diaper as often as possible so they stay clean and dry.
This same principle applies to all rashes that your baby experiences. Any rash somewhere on their bodies needs to be kept clean and dry. While it’s fairly easy to manage that during the day, it’s much more difficult at night. Babies, like everyone else, sweat as they sleep, and all of that sweat is soaked up by their bedding where it creates a damp environment all night long. That is unless they have bamboo bedding.
A bamboo bed set has the incredible ability to wick moisture away from your child while he or she sleeps. In fact, this bedding can reduce the amount of moisture in you infant’s bed by 50%. And that kind of reduction means your newborn’s rash stays clean and dry all night long. As a result, most rashes can heal much more quickly than they otherwise would have.
Bamboo Baby Blankets Reduce Dry Skin
Rashes aren’t the only skin ailments that infants struggle with. Many babies suffer from eczema,
otherwise known as chronically dry skin. In addition to consulting your doctor, you can swap out your child’s bedding for a bamboo blanket to help alleviate your baby’s eczema.
How exactly does this blanket improve your infant’s dry skin? Well, any rough textures in their bedding can easily aggravate your little one’s sore skin, causing it to take longer to heal. Bamboo blankets are extremely soft and smooth, which means you can wrap your little sweethearts in a material that is safe and comfortable.
A bamboo blanket is unbelievably soft and smooth because it is made by using long strands of bamboo that are stretched across the entire length of the blanket fabric to eliminate any rough fibers ends from the blanket. Compare this to traditional blankets which weave the scratchy ends of their fibers throughout the fabric, leaving them to rub against your child’s sore skin all night long.
Bamboo Crib Sheets Discourage Baby Acne
While most people know that babies can develop a rash or even eczema, many new parents are
surprised to learn that babies can have acne. In fact, 20% of babies develop acne during the first month after they’re born. So, what can you do about it?
To begin with, the last thing you want to do is to rub ointments or lotions on your child’s acne. Your infant’s skin can easily absorb the chemicals in these products and make them sick. Instead, you need a natural way to prevent your baby’s acne from becoming infected while it heals on its own.
That’s where bamboo crib sheets come in. These sheets reduce the chances that your child’s acne will become infected because bamboo materials naturally discourage bacteria.
How, exactly, does that work, you might ask. Well, as you read above, bamboo sheets significantly reduce the amount of moisture in a bed. In turn, this ability makes your newborn’s crib inhospitable to bacteria because bacteria (like all living things) need water to survive. Since bacteria can’t find the water they need, your baby’s crib is a safe place for your angel to sleep while their acne heals.
Additionally, bamboo sheets not only soothe your baby’s acne, they can help clear up your acne as well! If you want to learn more about how a bamboo bed set heals your skin, read our blog Get Clearer Skin with Bamboo Bed Sheets.
