Quality sleep is important for your baby. The amount of sleep your baby gets affects their brain and body development, making it one of the most critical factors to their overall health.
The only way to achieve the perfect state of sleep is through comfort. Having a properly aligned spine, back, and head support is imperative for your baby to sleep comfortably. But, an overlooked element is the materials your baby sleeps on.
Sleep is the time their bodies use to heal, rejuvenate, and grow. Most baby mattresses are made of materials that contain chemicals that are unnatural. Many mattress manufacturers compete to design the most comfortable bedding without putting much thought into how the chemicals they use could affect babies.
We believe that natural materials are essential for creating a comfortable environment for quality sleep for your baby. Do not force their immune system into battle with foreign chemicals as they sleep. Choose natural materials to allow them to wake up feeling refreshed and well rested.
Here are the benefits you will notice after sleeping on organic cotton:
Cotton woven bedding is airy, making it more comfortable for your baby’s body. As they sleep, their body tends to heat up, which can cause them to wake up hot and sweaty. Cotton is excellent at absorbing heat from their body, keeping them dry and fresh. This fabric keeps them cool in the summer and warm in the winter by retaining and absorbing body heat. Synthetic materials like polyester absorb heat without ventilating it making it difficult to cool down.
Especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin, cotton is naturally hypoallergenic. It will not cause your baby’s skin to feel itchy or irritated and has limited association with allergies.
Cotton bedding could save you money in the long-run. It can be tempting to choose a cheaper synthetic material since high-quality cotton costs more; however, cheaper materials do not last as long. Natural cotton bedding can last almost twice as long as synthetic alternatives, so it will not need to be replaced as frequently.
Most people are under the impression that cotton is more work to take care of than other materials. Our removable covers are machine washable just like most other fabrics. It does not need to be hand-washed or air dried for hours after. Although, you should be sure to wash cotton with other non-textiles or wash it by itself altogether. Your bedding will clean better this way, and you will not risk overloading your machine. There is no need to use fancy detergents, and it can even be tumble dried on a low temperature. Take the cover out when it is still a bit damp and lay it flat to dry to reduce wrinkles.
At Pause&Sleep, our baby mattress includes an unbleached 100% organic cotton, waterproof, removable and washable cover that is specially designed for your precious little ones. You will have peace of mind that they are getting the best sleep possible during these formative years.
