The Shear Comfort Neonatal & Paediatric Overlay provides comfort for babies and toddlers delicate skin.
The Neonatal Overlay is the perfect size for newborns as it is small enough size-wise to place in an incubator, cot or moses basket to protect your babies skin and help them sleep soundly.
For older babies or toddlers, the Paediatric Overlay fits perfectly in a pushchair, cot bed or even on the floor for a cosy patch of Sheep’s wool to rest and play on.
There have been a number of studies conducted that illustrate the benefits for babies sleeping on and underwool. The rate of weight gain in underweight newborns was 61% higher when sleeping on a wool overlay compared with a cotton sheet. Jaundiced newborns sleeping on wool were more settled when sleeping compared with those on cotton. Only around 30% of babies on wool cried compared with 67% on cotton.
Made from XD1900, this is medical sheep’s wool unique to Shear Comfort, with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins – which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties. Providing the ideal microclimate for a good sleep, looking after temperature and perspiration regulation, with the excellent air redistribution properties of a wool product.
Made with natural properties of fabric-backed medical sheepskin wool, unique to Shear Comfort, ensures that comfort and protection are provided. The moisture dissipation qualities of the wool ensure any perspiration is effectively wicked away from the skin.
