Kids Sleep Products
I don’t know about you, but I recently found myself thinking, how is it November already? As unbelievable as it seems, the holidays—that crazy time of year when you celebrate, eat, shop, and repeat—have arrived. With all the comings and goings of the season, we often lose sight of the healthy habits we’ve worked towards over the past year. Working out? Who has the time? Eating healthy? Ha! And last but certainly not least, a regular sleep schedule? There’s simply too much to do, right?
Wrong. Before you tailspin into the season of doing...I mean giving, you have got to set sleep goals for you and your family, especially your little ones. We know that the health and wellness of your munchkin is at the top of your list every day, but what about at night? According to our partners at the National Sleep Foundation, school-aged children (6 to 13 years old) need between 9–11 hours of sleep every night in order to help prevent sleep disorders and health related issues. These are serious health concerns, and enforcing a regular and consistent sleep schedule and bedtime routine are critical keys to success, regardless of the time of year.
Our PureCare Kids collection is specifically designed for growing children from 3 to 13 and offers premium youth pillows, protectors, and pillowcases that provide the comfort and wellness benefits that your growing child needs. Give your youngster a head start with proper sleep support from PureCare One Kids pillows, or check out the adjustable constructions of our Rise & Shine youth pillows, which are designed to grow and change just as quickly as your kiddo. Don’t forget the basics of mattress and pillow protection, which help to keep harmful allergens and irritants like dust mites, bacteria, and moisture from building up in your child’s sleep environment. And don’t worry, our entire Kids collection is completely washable—pillows and all!
Sweet dreams for your little ones start right here this holiday season.Read More & Comment »
What’s Living in Your Mattress & Pillows?
With Halloween just around the corner, many of us are busy decorating the house with ghosts, ghouls, and creepy-crawlies. But the truth of the matter is that this isn’t the only time of year that we share our homes with things that could make your skin crawl. Take, for instance, what’s most likely been living in your mattress and pillows all year… bacteria, allergens, and dust mites—oh my!
While an estimated 66% of Americans are planning to take part in Halloween festivities this year, only a small percentage are protecting their sleep environments from the creepy-crawlies that invade them year round. This seems crazy considering the fact that over 60 million Americans suffer from allergies and allergen-induced asthma, which are often triggered by dust mites and other allergens in the sleep environment. That means that of the estimated 42 million trick-or-treaters hitting the streets this year, only a few will be protected when they finally hit the sheets Halloween night.
I’d say it’s time to keep the critters and creatures of the night at bay with PureCare’s collection of bedding and pillow protectors. Our protectors are clinically tested by Dr. Philip M. Teirno, Jr., Director of Clinical Microbiology & Immunology at New York University. According to Dr. Tierno, “The accumulated quantities of allergens that build up in your mattress over time like fungi, bacteria, dust mites, dander and numerous other particulates can lead to exacerbations of asthma and allergies or contribute to their development.” Dr. Tierno’s straight forward solution? “A medical-quality mattress protector is the solution” to providing day-long, year-round protection for your family.
