Features of Natural Sheepskin for Infant Care

Natural Sheepskin is a versatile and very unique material. It has a low heat exchange rate, which means it is not affected by the room or environment temperatures.

Since the material is extremely absorbent, it eliminates body odour created by sweat and oils excreted by the human body. It is also anti-bacterial. The sheepskin rejects dirt particles and keeps itself clean.

We have used Natural Sheepskin for thousands of years to keep them warm, but our ancestors did not just use sheepskin because it felt good and was convenient, as more and more people now realise sheepskin has special qualities that other natural materials do not possess.

Infant Care Sheepskins

Baby Care Sheepskin is naturally thermo-static thus keeping bare feet close to your natural body temperature regardless of the temperature outside. Dr Stephen Scott and his colleagues at Cambridge University Hospital worked with 34 incubator babies each weighing less than 1.2 kg when it was decided to put half of them on sheepskin. At first, it was thought that the sheepskin babies moved around less and so expended less energy. As it turned out, however, both groups of babies were equally active, which led the study authors to conclude that the probable explanation lay in sheepskin reducing stress on the infants by simply being more comforting than cotton.

Sheepskin for babies benefits

According to a report in The Lancet, a British medical journal, sheepskin has a soothing effect. When it was decided to put half of them on sheepskin, Dr. Stephen Scott and his colleagues at Cambridge University Hospital worked with 34 incubator babies each weighing less than 1.2kg. What happened then was that 12 of the 17 babies in the sheepskin group gained weight faster than 14 of the 17 infants who continued on cotton sheets.

Sheepskin for infants are soft, warm, and very comfortable to wear. The lanolin in sheepskin is similar to that found in human skin allowing it to help heal inflamed or sensitive skin or rashes.

Sheepskin also absorbs moisture twice as well as cotton. The moisture circulates through the fur, eventually evaporating completely, allowing the product to remain dry.OZwool Australian Lambskin Infant Care Sheepskins and Natural Sheepskin

Love my Sheepskins

OZmade natural Australian infant care lambskinAs a mother of 2 kids I just love my sheepskins and my focus today is to talk about the joys of having a sheepskin in the home.  I have always used sheepskins for my kids which I bought when they were born and have had them ever since.  I have had them in the pram, car seat, Mattress protector, decorative floor rugs and I always had one with me when going to playgroup.

Sheepskins have some real, scientifically proven benefits for the body.  Sheepskin has the ability to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.  It can also be soothing to a baby or child which can result in a better sleep and reduce stress.

So the question I get asked all the time is……  How do you keep them clean, especially with kids?

Easy, it isn’t difficult at all.  I understand kids and babies pee and vomit so in this situation you can just spot clean.  You can also wash your sheepskin the in the washing machine and I love to use Tea Tree Oil Wool Wash which makes it smell really nice and takes away all odours.  On the other days, I just shake it out and place in a sunny spot to air for a few hours.  You can also vacuum your sheepskin and then bush it out with your fingers or use a brush (I use a standard dog brush).Extra Large Dog Sheepskin 1
