Night Night by Allersafe Baby Bedding Range
We all acknowledge that a growing number of children are suffering from asthma and allergies. It is estimated that 1 in 3 children suffer from an allergy. The reasons for this significant amount are thought to be complex and it will be some time before scientists know all of the answers. However, we all know that asthma is a response to an irritant (trigger) that we are sensitive too. We also know that one of the major irritants within the home is the dust mite allergen. So, how does a child become sensitive to the dust mite allergen?
Sensitisation to an irritant is normally caused by exposure to a certain concentration of the irritant over a period of time. In the case of the dust mite allergen we know that the critical concentration is 10 micrograms/g of household dust. If a baby/young child is therefore exposed to this concentration of dust mite allergen for a period of time then there is a risk that they will become sensitive to that allergen. An asthma attack can then be triggered by exposure to a much lower concentration of the allergen, 2 micrograms/g in fact.
In view of this significant increase in childhood asthma, Allersafe took the decision to introduce a new range of baby bedding that would help to protect baby from breathing this critical concentration of allergen. Like all Allersafe bedding, the baby bedding products will significantly reduce the amount of allergen allowed to develop in the bedding itself. Used as part of an allergen reduction programme within the home, the Night Night range helps to reduce the risk of sensitisation.
The Night Night range is therefore designed to help reduce the risk of sensitisation rather than to help reduce the risk of an allergic response. So, give your child the best possible start in life, give them the gift of the Night Night by Allersafe bedding.
