What comes in a Baby Essentials Gift Set?
A: 1 Fitted Crib Sheet, 1 Baby Blanket, 6 Baby Washcloths, and a Panda caddy/organizer.
How deep is the fitted Crib Sheet? Does the crib sheet fit a standard crib mattress?
A: Yes, our fitted crib sheet fits the standard size crib mattress and has a 6” depth. There is a tight elastic all the way around the edge, not just at the corners like many crib sheets. This way the crib sheet fits snug and not loose. The bamboo fitted crib sheet will stay snug and not pop off.
Are Bamboo Crib Sheets Safe for baby?
A: Rayon Viscose from Bamboo is a healthy, safe alternative to cotton, and an excellent choice for babies and big kids with sensitive skin or eczema. Bamboo has soothing qualities and hypoallergenic qualities that are ideal for children with allergies.
Are bamboo baby blankets warm? Are bamboo baby blankets better than cotton blankets?
A: Bamboo’s fibers trap warm air and insulate your baby while sleeping, and although it’s also a highly breathable and cooling blanket, the fibers sense baby’s particular needs and either keep them warmer or release the heat if they are overheating. Cotton blankets don’t have the same abilities as bamboo, so your baby will stay warmer with bamboo blankets.
Do you have to use a special detergent for bamboo baby blankets? How do you wash crib sheets?
A: We recommend a mild liquid detergent like Ecos, Mrs. Myers, Woolite, Seventh Generation, ECover, or Kirkland Ultra Clean. We do not recommend bleach, fabric softener, washer balls or dryer sheets/balls. Wash the blanket without any Velcro, hooks or snaps that can snag on the blanket. Harsher detergents can break down the fibers faster, shortening the lifespan of the bamboo blanket or crib sheet.
Are bamboo blankets hypoallergenic? Are bamboo blankets soft?
A: Bamboo fibers are spun very round and smooth, so they don’t irritate skin the way that some rougher cotton fibers can. This is important for baby’s sensitive skin. Bamboo blankets feel silky soft against their skin and soothe skin irritations and eczema.
How can I reuse the Panda caddy/organizer?
A: So many uses! You can fill it with fresh diapers, small socks and hats, toys, shampoo and lotions, use it for the baby washcloths, its handy to keep on the dresser or near the bathtub.
