We sometimes get asked, "Why are natural fibres such a big deal?". The real answer is. . . .more SLEEEEEP! Babies sleep better in natural fibres, for the simple reason that their temperature doesn't jump around during the night and wake them up - even when there are changes in temperature around them. So, if it's a cold night they will stay snug and warm, and if it's a hot night, natural fibres in bedding and clothing will help keep them cool and comfortable. The result is more sleep for baby, and more sleep for you!
We only choose natural fibres such as organic cotton, bamboo and merino because they are so good at keeping the body at an even temperature. Unlike synthetics fabrics, natural fibres 'breathe' - and it doesn't get more natural than that. Most other baby sleeping bags on the market are filled with Polyester or other synthetic materials. Synthetic fibres, such as polyester trap heat as they don't breathe nearly as well - result being an overheated sweaty baby who will then cool down quickly as the moisture continues to sit next to the skin. These temperature fluctuations are uncomfortable and often wake a sleeping bub.
Organic cotton is also natural, renewable and biodegradable. It benefits both cotton producers and the environment by avoiding the harmful effects of toxic pesticides. By choosing organic cotton, bamboo or merino for your baby, you are also benefiting your baby's skin. Babies have thinner skin that is more easily irritated, so all ergoPouch products are made using vegetable dyes and are free from fire retardants.
