What Do You Look for in Bedsheets?

When you think of waterproof sheets, you probably remember the old-school stiff-vinyl, crackly and unwieldy layers used on kids’ beds to protect the mattress underneath. They were uncomfortable to sleep on, difficult to clean and had a plasticky smell that kids hate. The new generation of waterproof sheets are completely different. Nature combined with technology gives you a smooth, natural surface that is so comfortable to sleep on that you don’t need a regular sheet on top. In cheerful colors and different sizes – for cribs, twin and waterproof fitted sheet doubles – they provide a new level of comfort and convenience.

Potty training is an anxious time for parents and kids. For parents, it can mean middle-of-the-night emergencies, when beds have to be remade quickly and kids consoled. With hypoallergenic waterproof mattress protector sheets, there’s no mess to clean up and consequently nothing for kids to feel sad or guilty about. And parents can get a good night’s sleep. They’ll need it for the next day!
The sheets are also breathable, which is good since babies and young children are highly susceptible to all kinds of rashes. Made of tender and natural fibers, they are soft and comfortable as well a highly practical. Unlike plastic mattress protectors, they’re breathable, and don’t overheat. So your kids can get a good night’s sleep even if there are any accidents.

Bedsheets should feel soft and fresh
What do people look for in bedsheets? Fresh and clean sounds good, doesn’t it? For 78% of Americans, sheets with a fresh scent actually make the idea of going to bed exciting. And about three-fourths of people feel that they sleep better on fresh-smelling sheets. Waterproof fitted sheets work as well for adults as they do for kids. They’re soft, comfortable to sleep on, all-natural and easy-care.
New technology uses cosmetic-grade zinc to make waterproof fitted sheet doubles, singles or crib-sized, as well as pillowcases. Zinc has antibacterial properties. It also helps to refresh and regenerate the skin. Zinc reduces odor, so your sheets smell fresh longer between washes. In fact, you don’t have to wash them as frequently. The zinc is incorporated into the fabric using an innovative technology and does not wash out over time.

Bedsheets should be easy-care
Waterproof fitted sheet doubles and singles as well as hypoallergenic pillow cases and crib sheets are all easy to care for. You can just toss them in the washer and dryer and they’re ready for use, smelling clean and fresh.

With new waterproof fitted sheet doubles or crib sheets, you get soft, colorful linens instead of smelly, crackly vinyl mattress protectors. We spend a third of our lived in bed, and babies even more. Choosing soft, colorful sheets that are breathable, waterproof and easy to care for is essentially an easy choice.

Your Baby is Precious, So is Their Skin

If you’re a new parent, your mind is probably reeling with a million and one different things at once. That’s perfectly normal. Parenthood is a major step in life, and one that’s not to be taken lightly. But it’s also an exciting milestone, and one that should be embraced.

All that being said, it’s probably still a challenge to ease your mind from all the anxieties that come from having a child or children, like how to take care of their health, how to teach them, how to feed them, and how to protect them. One of the most delicate parts of a new child is their skin. As we’ve come to know through countless idioms, a baby’s skin is incredibly smooth, and with this smoothness comes great vulnerability.

But there are many ways to care for your child’s skin. The three main environmental factors that affect a baby’s skin the most are water, sunlight, and the fabric a child sleeps on. Here’s how to best protect your children and their skin in the bath, outdoors, and at nap time.

1) Staying Safe From the Sun

Any doctor will tell you that your child is not to be in direct sunlight until reaching six months of age. After this, children can be exposed to the sun, but with a few precautions. First off, on very hot, bright, and humid days, it’s best to keep your child indoors in air conditioning if possible.

However, sunlight is rich with vitamin D which is good for bones, mood, and overall mental health, so on milder days it’s good to get your kid outside. On these occasions, remember to apply sunscreen on your child that’s at least SPF 30. For the best effect, it should be applied a half hour before getting outside. A child’s sweat glands aren’t fully developed, so choosing to not take this precaution can lead to heat rash and severe sunburn.

2) Baths: Not Too Cold or Hot, Just Right

While many adults enjoy taking showers daily, babies only need to bathe 2 to 3 times a week. When it comes time for a bath, your first step is to find the right water temperature. The water can’t be too cold, or it can bother your child and also provide an ineffective bath. But it also shouldn’t too hot or it can harm your child and do damage to the skin, resulting in itching or more severe effects.

A good water temperature for babies is just over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (or 38 degrees Celsius). Once this temperature is achieved, the bathtub should be filled with 2-3 inches of water. Then the baby should be gently scrubbed with a soft sponge, never a coarser one.

3) Soft, Waterproof Sheets for Baby Skin

Any experienced parent can tell you that little is more important than a baby’s bedtime. When a child sleeps comfortably and well, it provides parents with some peace and quiet as well as peace of mind, and it results in a happier, healthier child! The proper bedding and sheets are important for a baby to achieve the best sleep and protect their skin. A combination of fitted waterproof sheets for baby skin, a sheet protector, and hypoallergenic kids pillowcases is the best way to ensure good sleep and healthy skin.

Waterproof sheets for baby boys and girls are hygienic and comfortable. Adult humans lose nearly a half liter of water every night through sweat and other means, and while babies don’t lose as much, they also lose water. Crib fitted sheets without protection against this wear out faster and can irritate the skin.

With these tips you’ll have one less thing to worry about, new parents!
