Remember how Daniel had his baby cot amped up with Babysafe Latex Bedding? When Baby Nathen came along, I thought we were all set, just dig out, reuse it and we’re good yeh? Unfortunately, when I took out all the Babysafe bedding, I found them all moudly.
Oh godddddd. All the Babysafe bedding looked and smelt terrible! I decided to look at the care instructions label again and realised we never bothered with it before. All our fault. :(
Here’s what you need to know:
- Hand wash with mild detergent is highly recommended. If machine wash, use a laundry net.
- Rinse well in cold water
- Press or roll latex foam carefully between two highly absorbent materials to squeeze out water
- Do not wring or tumble
- Dry under fan/warm air
- DO NOT EXPOSE TO DIRECT HEAT OR SUNLIGHT
What we did:
- Machine wash with mild detergent and without the use of a laundry net
- Sun dry
We basically did not follow the instructions at all la. Such a waste. :( These were good beddings too. Well, what’s done is done but we do know we want to let our newborn use these too. So make sure you read the care instructions to ensure longevity of your Babysafe bedding!
Here are some photos of our lovely Nathen enjoying (and being very attached) to the new set of Babysafe bedding! :)
A must have for us is always the newborn pillow which is a dimpled pillow that helps shape the baby’s head so that he/she doesn’t get a flathead, while allowing him to lie on his back or on his side – as you can see from the above side shot.
We’re glad we’re using Babysafe bedding again. Baby Nathen simply simply lovessss the Bambeanie – a better alternative to the usual bean sprout kernel pillows because these can withstand humidity, wetting and soiling, warmth of the body heat and still keep sterile and sanitary; it is washable too – just be sure to take note of the care instructions!!
I hope my unfortunate mis-handling of my Babysafe Bedding has helped you better care for yours!
As for Daniel, he is now enjoying the Kid Pillow now that he is 2 years old.
If you have a child at home as well, do consider checking out Babysafe. They have pillows that are designed to properly support your child’s head, neck and shoulder, whether he sleeps on his side or back.
