Why Cotton Rocks For Sleepwear?
Cotton sleepwear – does it really make a difference for your little boy? And what’s the difference between cotton sleepwear and sleepwear made from other fabrics like polyester? If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about the benefits of cotton for pyjamas, read on!
These days you’ll find plenty of pyjamas are made from synthetic fibers like polyester. The downside of this is that because they are synthetic, they will not breathe. Now if you live in a warm climate, and especially if it gets quite humid (talking to you Queensland and Northern Territory!), alarm bells should start ringing! Because in warm weather your little man is going to be more likely to wake up hot and sweaty when wearing polyester as his pjs will trap the heat and moisture that naturally accumulates through the night. He’s going to wake up feeling yuck and probably pretty grumpy too!
Cotton on the other hand is a natural fibre and it breathes extremely well, absorbing any moisture and allowing any heat to pass through quickly. But cotton has another useful quality. It also retains heat very well by naturally swelling to his body heat when it’s cold outside. So your little boy will keep cool all night long on a warm night and yet be kept warm all night when the nights turn a bit chilly during the cooler months.
So… Cotton On To Cotton!
Cotton is more durable than polyester so your sleepwear will last longer than just a season! Mums and dad will be pleased to hear that especially if their little boy is an active sleeper and tosses and turns a lot during the night! But don’t worry that cotton is all stiff and scratchy! That means extra snuggly factor for the boys as they cosy up with the sleepwear close to their soft skin. Cotton is also resistant to dust mites and is hypoallergenic, which makes cotton sleepwear the perfect choice for kiddies who have allergies or asthma.
So next time you’re looking to buy sleepwear, consider cotton sleepwear. It’s not only hard wearing but also hard working! It’s sure to give your son a peaceful and undisturbed night’s sleep by helping regulate his temperature and yet being soft and snuggly, so he can wake up refreshed and ready to play!
