TO ENSURE YOUR BABY'S COMFORT
Wicking fabrics for sports apparel makes sense for sweaty athletes and hot weather locations, but it also makes sense for babies. Fabrics that move sweat away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric, where it evaporates are considered to be fabrics that wick. Moisture wicking is really the transference of moisture, versus the absorption of moisture. Transference occurs when a fabric moves moisture from a baby's skinís surface to the outer layer of the fabric where it has more surface area and can typically dry faster than standard fabrics like cotton. Bamboo fabric absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton, is incredibly soft and dries quickly.
As we all know, the key to preventing and treating diaper rash is to keep your baby's diaper area clean, cool and dry. Because a baby's skin is so delicate, heat and dampness can easily cause irritations and break-outs outside the diaper area, as well. To have true moisture management, you have to have an optimum balance of two properties: wicking and fast drying. Bamboo fabric loves to absorb moisture and is also fast drying, releasing both heat and moisture at an extremely fast rate into the air. The result is lower skin temperatures, added comfort and a restful nightís sleep. Fabric that regulates a baby's temperature is called thermoregulating; meaning it will help your baby to feel cool when they are hot and warm when they are cool.
More and more parents are realizing the benefits of organic products to both their babyís health and to the environment. So, along with the benefits of thermoregulating comfort, it is reassuring to know that the fabric against your baby's skin is organic and not treated with chemical enhancements. Fabric manufactured from viscose from organic bamboo is an ideal fit for baby clothes, baby blankets, washcloths and towels. A baby can't tell you what feels good, but once you have felt bamboo fabric, you'll know that for any baby's delicate skin, bamboo fabric is the softest and better choice.
Make a sustainable, eco-friendly choice that will ensure your baby's comfort, and more importantly, her health by seeking out fabrics that provide both softness and temperature comfort. Or if you're sending a baby gift to a little newborn you know, don't think cute and colorful - think soft and comfortable and you'll see a happy baby when you visit!
