Having a baby offers you a life experience like no other. Every day, you have the privilege of watching your little one grow up. Of course, not every day is filled with rainbows and sunshine. You will experience some struggles along the way — one of them regarding how you can appropriately dress your babies for sleep time.
When it comes to selecting different types of bamboo baby clothes, you have a wide variety of options available! Check out our latest guide on selecting soft and comfortable essentials that will keep your baby happy while they get some much-needed shut-eye.
Regulating Your Baby’s Body Temperature
Your baby’s body works hard to regulate its temperature while they sleep
When it comes to preparing your home for the arrival of a baby, tasks such as babyproofing stair gates and covering electrical outlets are typically a no brainer. But did you know that creating a safe and comfortable sleeping environment is also crucial for the health of your baby? Not only are you ensuring their comfort, but you are also reducing their risk of suffering from fatal sleep accidents or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Finding the right temperature for your baby’s bedroom
If your baby is too hot or too cold, their body starts working overtime to regulate their temperature. To keep your baby comfortable, make sure the temperature of their room is between 68 and 72 degrees. This will help reduce the risk of overheating and succumbing to SIDS. If you aren’t sure whether or not the room temperature is comfortable enough for your child, try to gauge how you feel in it. In general, if the bedroom feels cool enough for you, it is cool enough for your baby.
Monitoring the temperature of your child’s room
In order to keep your chid’s room at the proper temperature, you need to remember to keep an eye on the house’s thermostat. Of course, other factors such as the windows in the room and the house’s insulation can affect its temperature. If this is the case, consider using an indoor thermometer to keep track of the temperature inside your child’s room. You can also add a fan to the room to help reduce the risk of overheating.
Baby Bamboo Clothes That Are Perfect for Dressing Your Child In
Try these baby essentials for helping your little one get some much-needed rest
Not only does the temperature of your child’s room affect their ability to sleep well, but their clothing and bedding also make a huge difference! Bamboo baby clothes, for instance, can impact the number of times your baby wakes up at night. Bedding made out of breathable materials is also important for keeping your baby warm while also ensuring they do not become overheated during the night.
Finding the right bamboo baby essentials for sleep
To make sure your child gets a good night’s rest, dress them up in some soft bamboo baby essentials like night jammies or a sleep sack. A soft swaddle is also great for babies who are three months old and younger.
If you’re worried about your baby overheating, try breathable bamboo footies or rompers. Because your child grows so fast within their first couple of years, I have designed special 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, 12-month, and toddler-sized essentials. For colder days, you can dress your baby in a wearable sleep sack.
Bamboo fabric is one of the best materials you can dress your child in. Thanks to the temperature regulating Softek™ fabric my essentials offer, your baby can rest easy in their soft, breathable night essentials.
Picking out the right bedding for your little one
Bedding also plays an important role in ensuring your child sleeps well. I recommend either bamboo or cotton muslin. However, babies typically have varying preferences on the texture of their bedding. As long as you find a set of bedding that is soft and comfortable, you are good to go!
Tips for Helping Your Little One Fall Asleep
Need assistance with getting your baby to sleep? Try these tips!
When it comes to helping your babies fall — and stay — asleep, you want to focus on consistency. Arranging their nap time and bedtime will help your little one fall into a regular sleep schedule. In addition to practicing a regular napping and bedtime routine, you can add a sound machine and darken up the room to encourage them to fall asleep.
For babies, you need to make sure you are giving them full meals before putting them to sleep. Babies with empty bellies often have trouble falling asleep or going back to sleep after they wake up.
Signs That Your Baby is Uncomfortable
If you notice your baby is sweating or breathing heavily, they might be feeling a little overheated. To gauge their temperature, you can touch their belly or the back of their neck. If they are sweaty or cold to the touch, you need to adjust the temperature of the room and also make some changes to their essentials. Some people test the extremities, such as the hands or feet, but they do not give you an accurate reading of your child’s temperature.
When it comes to taking care of your children and ensuring they are as comfortable as possible, bamboo baby clothes are a top choice among parents. Lark Aventurewear’s breathable bamboo baby clothes are built with temperature-regulating Softek™ knit to offer baby soft material that is also breathable and stain-resistant.
