B.sensible Bedding

Blondie Boy has eczema. I've mentioned it in passing, I've got drafts of posts sitting to be finished, but I've never really talked about it. We are able to manage his eczema with prescription ointments, soap-substitutes and other things his doctor has given us.

We don't use fabric softener on any of his clothes and I prefer to keep him in breathable fabrics like cotton. When we heard about B.sensible bedding and that their baby line Suavinet could be beneficial for children with eczema we were keen to give it a try.

B.sensible’s bedding is made from Tencel a 100% natural fibre that comes from eucalyptus trees. Combined with a smart stretchable membrane that is virtually undetectable, it acts as a hypo-allergenic barrier against moisture, bacteria and dust mites. The smooth surface of the fibre and its extraordinary moisture absorption provides a really healthy environment for babies and young children. Another amazing feature of this new-age fibre is its ability to regulate body temperature, acting like a second skin. It also absorbs significantly more moisture than cotton and dries much more quickly.

The sheet was really soft and felt just as soft after we'd put it through the washer and dryer. I can't say that is has helped Blondie Boy's eczema, but it certainly has not gotten any worse and he hasn't developed any new patches on his face or any other part of his body which directly touches the sheet.

The bedding is also available in adult sizes.

Transatlantic Blonde was provided this product for review.

I'm afraid as a life long eczema sufferer this is the first of many things you'll try in an attempt to alleviate BB's skin. If you have any questions email me. I've probably tried out everything there is. Thanks for sharing this xx
