This year my oldest daughter suffered from asthma. This is something my family has never had trouble with so It was a learning curve for myself and her. We suffered from it most over the cooler months so I introduced a few different things into our lifestyle including this Protect. A. Bed Tencel Mattress Protector. Her Asthma was worse at night so I decided that it may be something to do with dust mites around us, the protein in dust mites can trigger asthma and they float all around us ready to be inhaled!
When looking into the right protector for Stella I learnt a bit about what happens to a bed that isnt protected and it was astounding. It made me realize how important these are. For example a bed that isnt protected for 5 years is made up of your own bodily fluids, skin cells, bacteria and mould! It's not hard to believe when a third of each day is spent on the exact same mattress, and the average person looses up to 1L of fluid a day, through the skin, pores, and mouth, as well as millions of skin flakes. Sounds a bit gross right!?
After taking Stellas needs into consideration I opted for the Tencel Signature Series Mattress Protector
Its for sensitive skin and people who suffer from Eczema, its also Eco-friendly (LOVE) and made from 100% organic and odourless wood-based fibres, they are free from pesticides and chemicals, which can irritate the skin. When I first opened it I noticed how thin it was and remember commenting on that but it still seems to soak up stains and spills so far. Its SO soft and breathable it honestly feels like silk to lay on!
This particular protector is approved by the National Asthma Council Australia and the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation of New Zealand’s Sensitive Choice Program. They are also SIDS approved and work alongside parents to promote safe sleep environments and also have approval by the Eczema Association as Sensitive Skin Tried and Tested. So thats just another bonus!
Since using the protector we haven't had huge problems with asthma, I can go to sleep rest assured she is comfortable and protected and as a mother of a baby and child that keeps me at ease.
If youve made it this far you now have your chance to win your own Tencel Signature Series Mattress Protector in your choice of size.
