As per the medical dictionary –
‘Sleep is a natural periodic state of rest of both mind and body in which the consciousness is completely or partially lost. During sleep the brain undergoes a characteristic cycle of brain-wave activity that includes intervals of dreaming’.
This proves how imperative it is to sleep well at night in order to ensure proper functioning of your mind and body throughout the day.
In order to experience all the goodness of a sound sleep, you need to feel completely relaxed when you climb in between sheets and to a great extent it is your bedding, meaning the surface that you sleep on, which is responsible for providing this feeling. Who wouldn’t like to enjoy the luxury of sleeping on a comfortable bed covered with the softest bed-sheet which amongst other things is also capable of regulating temperature? Therein emerges the option of bamboo sheets and surprising though it might appear, it is indeed the long forgotten bamboo that provides the softest bedding material.
Bamboo sheets have risen to fame during recent times not just owing to their fine soft quality but also their antibacterial, antifungal and temperature regulating properties that are inherent to this species. Since these attributes are retained even after the bamboo has been transformed into sheets, the quilt that is produced is all-season in nature, meaning it can be used to keep warm in summers and cool during winters.
Most importantly what has caught everyone’s imagination is its built-in resistance to bacteria and fungi like mildew, mold and so on. Courtesy of this trait, it is one of the fastest growing renewable sources in the forest world. Therefore, after having been meticulously woven, the outcome is a high quality, soft and anti-allergic luxury sheet which is perfect for all age groups and is especially a good choice as kids’ bedding.
As is universally known, children have the most delicate skin and it does not take much for a small rash to aggravate into a full-fledged infection. Their skin needs proper care and the softest materials, especially during the time that they spend in bed and one of the ways of ensuring this entails using bamboo sheets as part of kids’ bedding. An added advantage is that bamboo does not require pesticides to grow and hence is more organic as compared to other materials. So you might as well rest assured that your child is sleeping on a surface which is completely free of chemicals.
Truly advantageous is the fact that even after several washes, bamboo sheets are able to retain their natural properties, namely softness, anti allergic and temperature regulation to the maximum. Thus, by using these, you need not worry about your child catching cold, getting sores or falling victim to contagions that thrive in humid conditions.
‘Natural’ is the way to go in this new millennium and switching to bamboo sheets is a viable option that meets this objective without being overly expensive on the pocket and draining on health and comfort. So why not discard those artificial fabrics and switch over to this eco-friendly alternative where the kids’ bedding is concerned to ensure a safe, comfortable and healthy environment for children?
