Why we

make

clothes

from

bamboo

Why Bamboo? Bamboo is the most

sustainable all-natural plant fibre on

earth with amazing silky softness!

Naturally Organic - bamboo is grown

without pesticides or fertilisers, unlike

conventional cotton which uses 25% of

all the worlds pesticides for only 10% of

the agricultural land mass.

Luxuriously Soft - feels like silky

cashmere.

Sustainable -Moso bamboo is the world’s

fastest growing plant, growing up to a

metre in a day. Bamboo is a grass, so

once cut it will regenerate in the same

way as your garden lawn.

Eco-Friendly - bamboo absorbs 35%

more carbon dioxide than equivalent

stands of trees, more bamboo would help

to cut the globally rising levels of carbon

dioxide and help in the fight against

global warming.

Absorbent - bamboo absorbs up to

60% more water than cotton making

it perfect for bathrobes, towels and

nappies.

Breathable - the porous nature of

the fibre makes it breathable and

extremely comfortable against the

skin.

Thermo-regulating - keeps the

wearer warm in cool weather and

cool in warm weather. Bamboo

pyjamas and blankets are great for

this.

We blend GOTS certified

& fairly-traded

organic cotton

with our bamboo

yarn

Hypoallergenic - bamboo’s organic

and natural properties make it non-

irritating so perfect for babies extra

sensitive skin. Bamboo fabric is

particularly suitable for babies or

children with eczema.

New Baby Buying Guide

Pushchair:

This is one of the most expensive

things you need to buy for your baby

but also one of the most essential. If

you live in the country and love

getting out and about an all-terrain

buggy is the thing for you. According

to Which? the best three-wheeler is

either the Mountain Buggy Urban or

the Quinny Speedi SX (both have great

handling on all terrains and can be

fitted with a carrycot or Maxi-Cosi car

seat instead of the seat unit). The best

four-wheeler is the Quinny Buzz 4,

although this buggy is bulky and

heavy. For a cheaper alternative, if

you live in a top-floor flat or if you

need to be able to get your pushchair

on and off the bus either the Chicco

Multiway or the Maclaren Volo are

also highly rated.

Car Seat:

An absolute essential as by law

you must secure your baby safely in

the backseat of your car with a Group

0/0+ car sear. The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix

child car seat is designed for babies

from birth to 13kg (about 12 months).

It is probably the most popular of all

infant carriers in the UK as it fits onto

many makes of pushchair to use as

part of a travel system.

Options for Baby’s Bed – The First

3-6 Months

Our Top Choice - Baby Hammock:

Why we like them: There is no doubt

about it, parents who use baby

hammocks all attest to getting a good

nights sleep. We like the MIYO baby

hammock (www.miyobaby.com).

Benefits:

1. Baby hammocks provide your

child with a cradled

environment, which feels

similar to being in the womb.

The familiar feeling provides a

sense of security for your

baby and promotes a settled

sleep.

2. A baby hammock helps to

evenly distribute your baby’s

weight, causing less stress on

muscles and joints,

minimizing the risk of ‘flat

head’.

3. Baby hammocks naturally

cause baby to sleep with their

head slightly elevated. This is

particularly helpful for babies

with reflux.

4. Properly designed hammocks

keep babies sleeping on their

back – the safest sleeping

position for babies.

5. Baby can be easily settled

back to sleep by a gentle

swinging of the hammock. As

baby grows and begins to

wiggle on their own, the

movement of the hammock

means baby will often settle

themselves back to sleep.

6. Baby hammocks are

completely portable. No

matter where you are staying,

baby gets to sleep in their own

familiar bed. They are

lightweight and take up less

space than a traditional travel

cot.

Moses Basket:

Moses baskets provide a secure,

lightweight and cosy sleeping

environment for your baby. Most

baskets are made from palm or wicker.

Wicker baskets tend to be the most

long-lasting. Moses baskets have

carrying handles so that you can

move them easily from room to room.

The main benefit of a Moses basket is

that it is easily portable so you can

have baby downstairs with you for

naps, whereas if your little one goes

straight into a cot it would most likely

not be in the same room as you for

daytime naps. The Foundation for the

Study of Infant Deaths

(www.fsid.org.uk) is the UK's leading

baby charity aiming to prevent

unexpected deaths in infancy and

promote infant health. The latest

advice from them is that your baby

should have all their sleeps in the

same room as you for the first 6

months. This includes day and night

sleeps. (We like baby hammocks for

the same reason).

Crib/Cradle:

Cribs and cradles are usually

made of wood. They provide a smaller

sleeping environment for a young

baby than a cot and have the

additional feature of a rocking or

gliding action. However, they are not

easily portable.

Options for Baby’s Bed – From 3-6

Months Onwards

Cot:

Your little one will sleep in this until

they are big enough for their very own

bed.

Factors to take into account when

buying a cot:

1. Safety. Cots should carry the

British Standards Institution

(BSI) number BS EN

716:2008, which indicates

that they comply with the

required safety standards.

2. Whether the cot can be

converted into a toddler bed.

Some cots are extendable or

have the handy knack of fully

transforming into a bed when

your tot no longer needs the

protective bars of a cot. These

are a practical buy as they

offer a bed for all stages from

birth to toddler-hood and

beyond, saving you money in

the process. Cot beds are

larger than cots. You'll need to

buy a cot-bed mattress rather

than one designed for a cot

3. Whether the cot has a drop

side.

4. Ease of using heightadjustable

base.

Cot Safety:

¨� The recommended room

temperature for a baby to

sleep in is 16-20ºC, use a room

thermometer to check the

temperature before putting

your baby to bed.

¨� The safest position for your

baby to sleep in a cot is on

their back, not on their front

or side.

¨� Your baby should be

positioned with their feet at

the foot of the cot.

¨� The cot bedding should be

securely tucked in and made

up to come no higher than

your baby's shoulders.

¨� Keep the cot in a room with

you for the first six months.

¨� Keep the cot out of direct

sunlight.

MIYO

Baby Hammock

Mattress, Mattress Protector &

Sheets:

Whichever option you choose for

baby’s bed, you will need a mattress

that fits the bed as well as a mattress

protector. Beds can be bought second

hand but it’s always best to buy a new

mattress. You can buy natural fibre

mattresses from Natural Mat, a lovely

British company who use organic

materials to make their mattresses

(www.naturalmat.co.uk). Buy a set of

sheets that can be fitted to the

mattress - these are simple to put on

and are safer for baby as they'll

prevent any ends from creeping up

and into the bed. The Cot Mattress

Company (www.cotmattress.com) sell

a range of bamboo sheets for different

sized mattresses.

Nappies:

Reusable nappies - We love Tots

Bots reusable nappies

(www.totsbots.com). Their Easyfit

birth-to-potty nappy has an integral

waterproof outer and is as close as

cloth gets to a disposable. Their

website also has some great

instructional videos to help you get to

grips with using cloth nappies.

What you’ll need:

New Baby Buying Guide

¨� Easyfit Birth-to-potty Set (20

x Easyfit white nappies, 4 x

boosters, 200 x flushable

liners)

¨� Accessory kit (bucket, 2 x

laundry mesh, wet nappy bag,

200 x flushable liners, I x 1kg

bag of Potion nappy wash)

Eco-disposable nappies - You'll

need at least one pack to get started.

Eco-disposables contain biodegradable

materials, giving you the

convenience of a disposable without

all those land-polluting chemicals.

They contain less chemicals and so are

much better for baby’s skin too.

Moltex Oko nappies get great reviews,

although you need to buy them online

(available from

www.naturebotts.co.uk). Most of the

major supermarkets sell the Nature

Babycare nappies and Sainsbury’s

now do their own range of ecodisposables.

Remember though that

anything you throw in the bin will

wind up in landfill with lots of other

rubbish and be compacted so tightly

that oxygen may not be present to

allow bacteria to biodegrade the

product. Just because something is

biodegradable, doesn’t mean it will

biodegrade and for eco-disposables to

biodegrade they should be composted.

The materials used to make these eco

nappies are more environmentally

friendly than the materials used for

conventional nappies so still a better

option overall.

Changing Mat & Changing Table:

A changing mat is essential if you

want to avoid getting poo on the

carpet! They are also very useful for

when you’re on the go. Modern options

are relatively inexpensive and you can

buy some great wipe-free fabric

options that fold down to a minuscule

size for trips out. You'll also need a set

of wipes or cotton wool and water to

clean your baby's bottom. Although

not essential there are some lovely

changing tables that double up as a

chest of drawers. John Lewis and

Mamas & Papas have a good selection.

Clothes:

Baby Bodysuits & Babygrows -

these will be your baby's staple

wardrobe for the first few weeks, so

it's worth stocking up before the big

day. You'll need around 6 short sleeve

bodysuits, 6 long sleeves

bodysuits and six sleep suits/

babygrows for them to wear at night

(useful for the day too). Check there

are poppers at the crotch for quick

and easy nappy changes. To prevent

skin rashes or outbreaks of eczema,

stick to organic cotton. See our fab

basics (www.bamboo-baby.com). Our

basics range is made in England from

organic cotton and are made without

labels at the neck so they won't

irritate your babies delicate skin.

Scratch mittens are a good idea too to

prevent them scratching themselves

in the first couple of weeks.

You'll also need 4-6 day outfits and 2-3

cardigans, a jacket and a few pairs of

socks. Check out our gorgeous bamboo

knitted bodysuits, which for day

outfits are a bit more special than your

average cotton bodysuits, and our

cardigans (www.bamboo-baby.com).

And finally, if your baby is arriving in

the winter a warm winter

snowsuit with hat and booties will

keep them warm whilst out and about.

Blankets:

One or two blankets will suffice to

keep your baby warm whether at

home or on the go. Our knitted bamboo

blankets (www.bamboo-baby.com) are

really luxurious and come in lots of

lovely bright colours. Measuring

125cm by 75cm they are great for the

pram or for simply laying baby down

on and your baby will love the super

soft and silky texture.

Swaddling:

Swaddling is the practice of

snugly wrapping a lightweight blanket

around a baby to help calm, soothe

and comfort them and encourage

sleep. It works by mimicking the

conditions in the womb, providing

warmth and a slight resistance to

movement. Swaddling is clinically

proven to help babies remain asleep

safely on their backs, while also

reducing the effect of the Moro reflex,

which is the tendency for newborns to

startle themselves awake by suddenly

moving their arms. It can also help

ease the discomfort of colic in the

early weeks. Swaddling is

recommended by Midwives. Merino

Kids (www.merinokids.co.uk) do a

gorgeous range of swaddle blankets

made from lightweight merino wool

and Aden + Anais

(www.adenandanais.com) have a fab

range of bamboo muslin swaddles.

Never swaddle in anything heavy as

this could lead to your baby

overheating, its best to choose

something specially designed for the

job.

Feeding equipment:

Breastfeeding is best for your

baby and the most cost effective

option. You’ll need:

• Breast pads

• Nipple cream

• If you plan to express then

you’ll also need a breast

pump, a selection of bottles,

and a steriliser.

Baby Sleep Bag:

Popular nowadays are baby sleep

bags/gro-bags (95% of UK parents

choose these over sheets &

blankets). A baby sleep bag is a

“wearable blanket” designed for babies

to be used instead of traditional

bedding. Baby sleep bags have a neck

opening and armholes and are worn

by the baby to help them stay at the

right temperature through the night

without the problem of traditional

blankets and sheets being kicked off or

getting tangled up. The Gro Company

(www.gro.co.uk) produce an organic

cotton baby sleep bag. They were the

first to produce baby sleep bags in the

UK and are the brand recommended

by the FSID. Baby sleep bags come in

different tog ratings to suit the

seasons so always check that you're

buying the correct weight for the time

of year your baby is due to arrive.

Highchairs:

You won't need to consider one

until your baby is ready to be weaned.

We love the classic design of the

Stokke Tripp Trapp chair, which can

be adjusted to the height of the child.

Although not cheap, these chairs are a

great investment as will last your

child through from newborn till

teenage years (www.stokke.com).

There are also some great portable

high chairs on the market.

Sling:

Slings are supposed to help with

bonding, reduce the amount babies

cry, make babies feel more secure and

are also brilliant for those times when

your baby wants to be carried but you

need your hands free. If you are trying

to get your baby into a routine and

don’t want them to sleep all day and

be up all night slings might not be a

good idea as new babies will invariably

go straight to sleep the minute they

are put in the sling. The classic baby

carrier is the Baby Bjorn

(www.babybjorn.co.uk) and for a soft

sling option the Kari Me (www.karime.com),

the Sleepy Wrap

(www.sleepywrap.com) or the Baba

Sling (www.thebabasling.com) all get

good reviews.

Baby monitor:

New Baby Buying Guide

If your baby is going to be sleeping in

your room for the first few months,

monitors really serve no purpose as

you're guaranteed to hear them when

they wake. If you can wait until you're

ready to move them into their own

room, it will give you extra time to

shop around for a good value

model with all the features you

require.

Baby bath:

Baby baths will only last your

baby a few months before they go into

the big bath. Your money is probably

better spent on a much cheaper

support seat that keeps your baby safe

during bath times. John Lewis and

Mothercare stock these bath support

seats.

Cuddledry Towel:

Not absolutely essential but will

make bathing your little one a lot

easier. The Cuddledry Towel

(www.cuddledry.com) is made from

bamboo fibre and since bamboo is 60%

more absorbent than cotton and

gorgeously soft too it makes the

perfect towel!

Baby shampoos and body washes:

For the first few months plain

water is best as your baby’s skin is

very sensitive. Once you are ready to

buy some baby toiletries, opt for an

organic range that does not contain

any parabens or phthalates. We love

the ranges by Organic Babies

(www.organicbabies.com) and Green

Baby (www.greenbaby.com) but there

are lots of brands out there nowadays.

Bouncy chair:

Not essential but many parents

swear by them as most babies tend to

be content whilst sitting in them and

allows you a bit of hands free time!

The Baby Bjorn do classic baby bouncy

chairs (www.babybjorn.co.uk) but

Stokke also do a great product called

the Bounce ‘N’ Sleep which is a flexible

daybed and bouncer combined

(www.stokke.com).

Focus on:

Baby Led

Weaning

Over recent years, there has been much

debate over when exactly a baby should

be weaned onto solid foods. Baby-led

weaning describes the approach of

allowing babies to feed themselves from

the age if six months. The method was

developed by Gill Rapley in conjunction

with research and is thought to reduce

the risk of choking and make the

transition to solid foods easier with the

baby accepting a wide range of foods,

becoming confident and independent

and developing hand eye co- ordination

and chewing. Baby-led weaning also

means there is no need to prepare

special baby purees or foods.

The current recommendations by heath

professionals that babies should only be

introduced to solid foods at six months

of age fits foods at six months of age fits

with baby-led weaning as most babies

will begin to reach for food and try to

feed themselves at around six months of

age.

Babies can just be sat in an upright

position (on your lap to start with) at

the table with the family at meal times.

They can be offered a variety of sugar

and salt free foods in hand sized pieces

to explore and eventually eat. The

babies should also be given water to

drink at meal times in addition to their

milk feeds.

With baby-led weaning parents should

resist the temptation to help or hurry

the baby. As the name suggests baby led

weaning should be at the babies own

pace. They may take a little time to get

anything in their mouth and may make a

mess, but they will get there in the end.

Fruit and vegetables with built in

handles like broccoli and apple slices are

ideal foods to start with but as the baby

progresses they can also try pieces of

meat and eventually foods like

mincemeat once their motor skills have

progressed enough to allow this type of

self- feeding.

Further information on baby-led weaning

can be found at www.rapleyweaning.com

Eczema

Eczema can be an uncomfortable, irritating and debilitating condition that can have a severe

effect on the quality of life for those who suffer from it. Severe eczema can cause sleep loss,

stress and depression. For parents of babies and children with eczema, it can also be

distressing to see their children in pain or discomfort and constantly scratching an itch that

doesn’t stop.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is the name given to the condition where the skin becomes irritated, cracked and

inflamed. People who suffer from eczema may have less fats and oils in their skin than those

who do not. This means that the skin does not retain moisture as well and gaps may open up

between the skin cells as they are not plumped up with water. The gaps allow more water to be

lost from deeper layers of the skin and allow bacteria and irritants to pass into the deeper

layers of the skin. Certain substances are known to aggravate eczema. For example soaps and

detergents which remove the oils and fats from the skin. Healthy skin that has plumped up

skin cells and fats and oils is more able to repel allergens.

What Causes Eczema?

Bamboo is...

sustainable

There are a number of different types of eczema. The most common is atopic eczema which

although not completely understood is thought to be due to a combination of a tendency

passed from generation to generation and environmental factors.


Triggers vary from person to person but some common triggers include soaps and detergents,

dust mites and their droppings, animal fur, hair and saliva, pollen, overheating and rough

clothing.

Eczema in babies and children

Although atopic eczema can affect people of any age it primarily affects children, with between

5 and 15% of children being affected by the age of seven. It is also a problem for many babies

with it beginning in the first year of life for 60% of those children suffering from it.

The condition can also be aggravated in babies and children due to the itch scratch cycle. It

can be very difficult to stop children from scratching as the itch will give them an intense urge

to scratch.

Treatment of Eczema

There is currently no cure for eczema but it can be treated. Doctors and nurses can prescribe

creams to moisturise and reduce inflammation. The avoidance of known triggers can also help

to manage the condition.

How can bamboo and organic cotton help?

As rough clothing, chemicals, infection, being too warm and damp can all be triggers of atopic

eczema, organic cotton and bamboo clothing are both thought to help. Bamboo is very soft

with sweat wicking and thermo regulating properties, helping to reduce a number of the

triggers of eczema. Organic cotton is also cool to wear and allows the skin to ‘breathe’. Both

bamboo and organic cotton clothes are free of chemical residues. The National Eczema Society

provides a fact sheet with details of stockists of organic cotton, silk and bamboo clothing that

may help sufferers of eczema.

Natural Skincare for Eczema

Bamboo baBy loves: Purepotions

Natalie Balmond, founder of Purepotions, formulated the first

of her products when her daughter Lula was suffering from

chronic dry skin. None of the treatments she had tried,

whether they were conventional GP-prescribed creams or

alternative remedies, alleviated the itching and soreness that

was causing Lula a great deal of distress.

With much determination and experimentation, Natalie

developed a natural salve in her own kitchen, using a

combination of herbs and oils which dramatically improved

the condition of her daughter's skin. Very soon she was

inundated with requests for her ointment from people with

similar skin problems. The success of her salve then inspired

her to create a range of natural baby and first aid rescue

products, equally as effective and also without any harmful

chemicals.

Purepotions' products are now sold to thousands of people

both nationally and internationally.

Today, Purepotions receives many testimonies, letters and

emails from people of all ages, attesting to the effectiveness of

its salves and oils.
