Tip of the Week

Does your child share a room? Is it cold where you live, or do you like to keep the thermostat low at night? Does your child have allergies?

These are all things that might affect the kind of kids' bedding you select. If you have kids that share a room, do they have a theme in mind? Do they want totally different things?

Make sure you talk with them and understand the kind of environment in which they would like to sleep, do homework, and play. If your climate – or house – tends to be cold, you might want to consider a heavier comforter, an extra blanket, or some flannel sheets.

If your child has allergies, you will probably want to avoid natural fills and fibers, such as down and wool. Rather, look into hypoallergenic, synthetic fills and some of the new materials, like fleece and micro-fiber, to provide traditional softness and comfort without causing sneezing or rashes.

You can also get foundation items, like mattress pads and pillow covers, that limit the number of allergens that can get into – or back out of – durable goods like mattresses and pillows.
