We recommend running a HEPA air purifier in your child's bedroom
and covering the bed with allergy bedding as two basic measures to
improve indoor air quality and limit exposure to harmful or reaction causing agents. For children diagnosed with dust mite
allergies or asthma, allergy bedding should be
your first step in limiting children's allergies or asthma. Allergy bedding covers block the dust mites and the dust mite allergen that is found in almost
every single mattress and pillow, and while they are no cure, most people get much needed night time relief by combining the use of dust mite covers with
every day measures like dusting and vacuuming more frequently and washing bedding in hot water. Additionally, recent studies have shown that HEPA
air purifiers can lead to improved cardiovascular health, and
there is a wealth of data supporting them as a way to noticeably reduce levels of indoor air pollution (from dust mites and pollen, to dander and
even chemical vapors) in the home.
Infant Allergy - Baby Allergy
A sick infant is a parent's worst nightmare. Keep your baby away from the harmful and toxic chemicals found in common bedding
by creating a healthy nursery with the Starlight Support Crib Mattress and
an air purifier like the Austin Air Baby's Breath,
available in pink or blue. Moonlight Slumber crib, infant and toddler mattresses provide support and protection against common allergens without
the harmful glues and treatments found in modern textiles and bedding. The Baby's Breath features true HEPA filtration, capturing 99.97% of all particles 0.3
microns or larger. As an added bonus, the white noise from this air purifier may also help your baby sleep.
If you are looking for organic baby bedding, Pure-Rest makes several bedding products that are ideal for a nursery. Additionally, as part of the
bedding that we ourselves make, there are many Allergy Armor brand organic bedding options. From organic cotton allergy covers and blankets to sheets and even allergy pillows
and comforters, a majority of the bedding you'll find on our site, including the organic cotton bedding, is made by us, right here in Atlanta, GA.
Many infants have problems with eczema or dry skin. Children dealing with asthma can often have a dry, persistent cough, particularly during the
winter and fall months, while dry sinuses, chapped lips and dry skin are also common discomforts. A humidifier
should help tremendously by restoring moisture back into your indoor air and creating a more comfortable indoor climate. If your baby has
sensitive skin, try Vanicream skin cream. Recommended by dermatologists, vanicream
products are safe and effective for children as well as adults.
Household chemicals can cause serious damage to a young immune system. Instead of spraying toxic chemicals into your child's
room, clean with safe, all-natural EcoDiscoveries Nursery Cleaner. This
enzyme based cleaner will clean without the chlorine or ammonia. We find that Vital Oxide is a
safe, non-toxic alternative to traditional chemical cleaners. And unlike your ammonia based glass cleaner or chlorine based bathroom or mold cleaner,
Vital Oxide is a tested and EPA registered disinfectant and sanitizer. There is virtually no odor, and a wide variety of uses!
Asthma is the most prevalent chronic condition among children and is the most common cause of
hospitalization for children under 15. Over nine million children in the US alone have been diagnosed with asthma, and they miss nearly
15 million school days a year due to asthma. It is imperative that asthmatic children take their medication as
prescribed and learn about their asthma triggers. You can
help them avoid asthma triggers by preventing the build-up of allergens in the home.
Children need special asthma treatment equipment like the
PARI Vios Pediatric Nebulizer. Some equipment, such as the child masks for the PARI Vortex can make asthma
treatment more bearable for children by reducing the clinical feel that most asthma treatments can have.
Child Food Allergy
Young children cannot understand a life-threatening food allergy, and often cannot communicate that danger to others.
Food Allergy cards let everyone know about the
child's allergy and are handy for cafeterias or when dining out. As with any life-threatening allergy, an auto-injector (EpiPen) is essential to your child's safety. Your child should have
access to an EpiPen at all times. The Ana-Tote and the
Ana-Tote Twin cases make it easy to carry them anywhere. Convenient belts
and snaps allow kids to take them wherever they go, and now both sizes are available as red thermal totes.
Child Sinus Care
Rinsing the nose with saline (salt water) is a popular, effective at-home treatment for sinus problems. Saline washes away
allergens like pollen and mold spores, that can irritate the sinuses and cause allergic reactions like sneezing and congestion. Nasal
flushing also washes away germs, and this natural treatment is safe for children and adults alike. There are a variety of neti pots and rinses that are
simple, easy to mix and easy for children and kids to use. And beginning early, particularly with a child who suffers from
seasonal allergies, will help ensure a more consistent good habit later on.
Your child's favorite toy can house thousands of dust mites. We recommend washable toys. Wash toys in hot water weekly to
kill dust mites. If you already have an old stuffed animal that you absolutely cannot throw out or wash, place it in the freezer
overnight to kill dust mites.
Finding the right combination that works for you and your child can take some time and experimentation, but all of the products you will find on
our site are designed to help you better control your indoor environment and reduce allergens - all in the hope of eliminating (as much as possible)
reactions from eczema, allergies, asthma and other allergic disease.
