bambino merino clothing for babiesWhen you have a young baby, your instinct to protect them is running at an all time high. There seem to be ‘predators’ everywhere – not in terms of lions and tigers any more, but from pollution, toxins in our homes and all manner of 21st century hazards.

It’s important for our babies to be kept at a safe, constant temperature to prevent hypothermia or over heating. Swaddling our babes in manmade fibres traps heat and moisture and does not allow your baby’s skin to breathe. In addition manmade fibres tend to be made from non renewable resources such as petroleum, so they are bad for the environment.

Bambino merino

Bambino Merino was launched in the UK in 2005 and now the country’s leading brand of 100% merino baby sleeping bags.

Bambino Merino’s luxurious range of sleeping bags and natural baby wear include sleep suits, body suits and pyjamas all made from the finest merino wool, an ecological, pure fabric.

If you’ve never experienced the feel of merino wool; you’re in for a treat! Merino wool is lightweight and silky soft – the perfect material for putting next to your baby’s skin.

Merino wool is breathable, which keeps your baby at a constant and comfortable temperature – whatever the weather. it is suitable for babies with eczema as their skin is kept comfortable and cool.

The merino wool selected for bambino merino is renewable, sustainable, biodegradable and can be produced with minimal environment impact. In addition, it is ethically produced.

Easy care

[amazon-product small=”1″]1904601391[/amazon-product]When I think back to the early days of motherhood, I wanted everything to be convenient. By the time I had finished hours of feeding, there was little time for anything else – laundry and housework most especially!

Thankfully merino wool is easy to take care of and quick drying – that’s essential if you’re doing your bit for the environment by not using a tumble dryer. But, if you need to use it occasionally, merino wool can be tumble dried on a low heat.

Cost effective

You don’t need to worry about cost – at Bambino Merino, their sleeping bags grow with your baby, so you don’t need to buy numerous sizes as your baby thrives.  I have it on good authrity that bambino Merino are planning a toddler sized sleeping bag, which is great for fidgety toddlers who wake up with the covers kicked off!

What about you – have you used merino wool product for your children – what did you think?
