Why Baby's Crib Bedding Should Be Carefully Chosen

Aug 17, 2007
Pink with ruffles and lace, blue with puppy dogs and teddy bears; it's for a girl, it's for a boy; but wait! Baby's bedding should be carefully chosen with more in mind than a crib's fashion statement. Your garments and bedding come with laundering directions and if you or family members have allergies triggered by certain materials or laundry products, you find alternatives.

Your baby does not come with a list of possible allergies so priority should be given to knowing the materials baby's bedding is made of and secondly to decor and eye appeal. Quality Baby Bedding will list fill materials and fill power (the higher the fill: the more puff and longer it will last) as well as thread count and cover fabric. Baby bedding should be lightweight, provide warmth and be breathable.

Vast Wealth of Information

In this day and age there is a vast wealth of information at your fingertips via the Internet and this includes construction materials used in Crib Bedding. Baby's bedding should be made of materials least likely to present allergy triggers such as wool, (Alpaca/Llama 70% sheep 30%) organically grown cottons and cotton, Primaloft synthetic down, and Hyperclean Down (a down cleaning process to make the down Ph neutral).

Many of the synthetic fabrics and fillers do not breathe and over time can emit toxic fumes as they break down during the aging process, posing respiratory and sleeping difficulties. Quality bedding manufacturers will most often have web sites available and proudly address the construction products used in their bedding. When it comes to baby, it is far more than about looks, but online bedding companies have beautifully incorporated eye appeal and unique design workmanship into Quality Baby Crib Bedding.

Wool Blankets

Wool blankets are the softest most comfortable blankets you will find. Organic cotton flannel, unbleached cotton flannel and cotton flannel are choice backings for wool Blankets. Smaller wool blankets are perfect for swaddling baby in security and warmth during cuddle time, while a bit larger version is perfect for bundling, car trips and day care Blanky's.

Down Comforters

Down's billowy softness and gentle, breathable warmth is a natural for baby's comfort. Down Crib Comforters offer year round warmth with very little weight. Because babies will be babies, most down comforters are machine washable.

Feather Down Cleanliness

Cleanliness of the fill is primary in determining the hypoallergenic nature of some down comforters. The fillers are washed to get rid of dust, dirt and organic matter.

There are two "cleanliness" tests for the fills that go into Down Comforters that determine if the fill meets government standards.

1.The Oxygen Test determines how much organic matter is left in the material being tested. The governed standard is 10; Quality products have lower numbers

2. Turbidity Tests. These tests measure the suspended solids, dust, dirt and such organic matter suspended in the comforter's material. The Turbidity scale goes from low numbers (unwashed feathers) to high numbers around 550 meaning least suspended organic matter.

Primaloft Comforters

Wrap your baby in the gentle softness and warmth of a Primaloft synthetic down comforter. Soft, airy Primaloft provides breathable warmth, and is a natural for baby's comfort. A Primaloft Crib Comforter offers year round warmth with a very little weight and is machine washable.
