Babycare Lambskin Care Instructions

BabyCare Lambskins

Guidelines for Use
A million babies around the world have enjoyed the warmth, comfort and soft feel of Bowron Babycare since it was first developed over thirty years ago. However, continuing childcare research has resulted in many changes to childcare and parenting practices. The following provides a guide to assist you and your baby to gain the full enjoyment and benefit from your Babycare Lambskin.

Sleeping

When used as an item of bedding, it is recommended that children under the age of one are positioned on their backs and lambskin is covered with a sheet.


Thermal Control
Bowron Babycare is perfect all year round and can be used in a variety of ways. Wool is nature's insulation keeping baby warm and cosy in cold weather. In hot weather wool absorbs moisture which is then released into the air, leaving baby drier and more comfortable. However, as wool has superb insulation features, parents can generally use less clothing, less bedding and lower room temperatures to avoid overheating baby while sleeping.


Easycare
Babycare lambskin require less care than other baby bedding. Just machine wash and dry once a month. Full care instructions are attached to each skin. A daily airing keeps the lambskin fresh for baby. Small slightly soiled areas can be sponged off.
