Tip On Choosing Your Babies Bedding
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When choosing baby bedding you will need to consider not only what you find appealing but more importantly what materials are safe for your child.

Incredibly, despite safety guidelines and clear regulations, the quality of baby bedding does vary enormously. This can affect not only the durability of the bedding but more worryingly it's safety.

In many cases the poorer quality products are imported from other Countries and do not conform to stringent safety rules designed to protect children from potential risk.

Sadly, despite government efforts to control the importing and sales of these products that can pose a risk to a babies welfare, there are many incidents were they make it through on to store shelves.

As a result you are advised to always buy bedding from a quality store who stock quality products. They will be concerned that the bedding conforms to guidelines and have passed strict tests to determine if they are made from safe non irritant fibers that are not flammable and do not produce a choking hazard. Some fibers easily pill or come away posing a health hazard if inhaled, therefore cheap, poor quality products should be avoided.

Another factor that causes concern are the use of certain dyes, bleaches and colours that could irritate delicate skin causing a risk of allergies. to reduce this risk always buy natural fibers as these are far more gentle on a baby's skin.

With natural fibers the air can circulate, which is necessary as young babies can not regulate their body temperatures. It is important that you maintain a healthy temperature for your baby and ensure they do not get too hot. A reason why synthetic materials should be avoided.

Be careful to buy well fitting bedding as you want to be able to tuck in the sheets, preventing them becoming tangled as your child moves. You can buy stretch fitted sheets which are ideal for staying in place.

Look for sheets that are brushed flannelette or woven cotton. Stretch terry cotton or jersey cotton or good options too. Parents usually choose cotton sheets and cellular blankets for their newborn baby. These allow the skin to breath and layers can be added or removed as needed. Remember if you double up a blanket that counts as two layers.

Another very popular option for baby bedding is baby sleeping bags. The advantage of these is that your child can not kick layers off or wriggle under the covers. Although you can buy newborn sizes, most parents wait a few weeks before using them. Many report better quality sleep as it is easier to maintain baby's temperature. You should ensure they fit well around the neck to avoid strangulation and never use a hooded version. They come in tog ratings for Summer and Winter also.
