Taking the Stress Out of Getting to Sleep
Choosing the right bedding for your family is a minefield at the best of times: getting the right depth of duvet for the season, the right pillows for types of sleepers and allergy protection for those with respiratory, dust or fabric issues are just a few things to consider. Below are a few top tips to relieve the headache and ensure that your family gets the best night’s sleep money can buy.
Fighting off the allergy
There are a great range of allergy proof products on the market now when it comes to tackling sleep time. Allergy proof pillows & duvets are wrapped in a soft allergen fabric with specially designed hypoallergenic filler. This blocks out dust mites and pet hair, which are both major factors in contributing to a restless night’s sleep.
Where you lay your head
Selecting the right pillow is one of the most important parts of selecting the right bedding. You can create a comfortable sleeping environment with bedding from the Tesco range. Soft pillows are ideal for those who sleep on their stomachs; they minimise the strain on the neck by bending with the shape of the body. Medium pillows gentle cradle the head, perfect for those who sleep on their back. Finally hard pillows are perfect if you sleep on your side, since they support the neck and spine while holding their shape.
Getting the right duvet is paramount if you want your little ones to sleep through the night, giving them and you to the best nights rest possible. Duvets come with their own scale of warmth known as a tog rating. The rating goes off the duvets’ ability to trap the air and create warmth, so the higher the tog rating doesn’t necessarily mean the warmer the duvet. Generally, children shouldn’t sleep under anything over a 10.5, and duvets aren’t usually suitable for those under 12 months old.
