The best material for a sleep sack is one that is soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic. Organic cotton is a popular choice as it is gentle on a baby's sensitive skin and allows for good airflow, preventing overheating. Bamboo fabric is another excellent option known for its softness, moisture-wicking properties, and eco-friendliness. Both materials are comfortable and safe for babies.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or genetically modified organisms, making it less likely to cause skin irritation or allergies. Babies have delicate and sensitive skin, and organic cotton's natural, chemical-free properties make it a gentle and safe choice for their clothing and bedding.
Organic cotton, like regular cotton, may shrink to some extent when washed and dried. To minimize shrinkage, follow these tips:
• Wash in cold water: Using cold water can help reduce shrinkage compared to hot water.
• Gentle cycle: Use a gentle or delicate cycle to avoid excessive agitation.
• Avoid high heat: Tumble dry on low or air dry to prevent excessive shrinkage due to high heat.
