Why investing on a high quality baby bedding set matters.
Feb 08, 2016
Up until their toddler years, babies spend more time sleeping than awake, so preparing a comfortable sleeping environment should be a priority for any parent.
There are three main things to consider when buying a baby bedding set.
A 100% cotton baby bedding set should be your absolute top choice. Cotton’s characteristics allow the fabric to breath much better than synthetic fabrics. It is also more absorbent, which means the sheets will dry faster in case the baby sweats at night. And it is also convenient as it is machine washable.
Peruvian pima cotton is widely considered the highest quality cotton in the world. Its long staple yields a very soft weave and makes it a more durable fabric. It is also hypo-allergenic, which makes it an ideal alternative for people with skin sensitivities and, thus, also perfect for children.
Pima cotton reacts extremely well to washing, so your baby bedding will endure the first years of your child without losing its quality.
Design is also an important decision, as you want to surround your baby with a soft and peaceful atmosphere.
Whites and pastel colors give a harmonious and peaceful environment to their upbringing. Bright colors are a good choice for your children’s play area as well as other parts of their room, but their crib should be a calm and soothing space.
Children’s brands many times don’t disclose the thread-count of its bedding sets. Little ones, just like us, will enjoy the experience of a more comfortable sheet, so thread-count should be part of the bedding set buying decision, just like it is for adults.
Thread count alone doesn’t mean much unless it goes hand in hand with a high quality fabric. Thread count stands for the number of threads per square inch in the fabric. Higher thread count fabrics are finer, most of the time resulting in a softer and more luxurious feel. When combined with a higher quality fabric, such as Pima cotton, it will ensure the bedding set maintains its quality over time.
