By providing a unique, adjustable enclosed sleeve design that will stop baby scratching, breaking the itch, scratch, wake cycle providing relief for both you and your baby.
In a recent study published by the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (2010), it was found that eczema severity and sleep disturbance in children with eczema were found to be associated with reduced quality of life. Sleep disturbance has been rated as the second highest contributing factor to reduced quality of life in children with eczema after itching. While parents of eczema children report that lack of baby sleep is the most stressful aspect of care and describe sleep disturbance as the major impact on family quality of life.

Its unique, enclosed adjust-a-sleeve™ design provides hand covers to prevent scratching all year round and being one size fits 000-2+ will fit throughout their entire first 2+ years when baby eczema is often at its worst and most difficult to manage.
Stop thumb sucking
The Bamboo Bubby Bag’s adjustable, enclosed sleeve design can protect the skin on your baby or toddler’s hands from thumb sucking damage and infection. The highly absorbent and natural antibacterial nature of the 70% bamboo/30% organic cotton fabric makes the Bamboo Bubby Bag™ perfect for lessening irritations around mouths or lips from excessive thumb sucking moisture or wetness.
Allow skin to heal
This bamboo sleeping bag is the ideal product for healing baby eczema and breaking the itch-scratch cycle which is one of the most distressing factors for both you and your baby or child with eczema.
Its enclosed sleeve design and beautifully soft fabric will stop your baby scratching during sleep times (or in the pram or car when it is also difficult to minimise scratching) allowing much needed healing to occur.
The itch-scratch cycle occurs because having eczema means that skin is damaged, moisture evaporates and cells shrink, causing cracks. Allergens and irritants can get in, triggering the skin to release certain chemicals that make the skin itchy. When this itch is scratched, more chemicals are released and the skin feels even itchier and the vicious cycle continues until the skin begins to heal.
Breaking the Itch-Scratch Cycle is the key to Successful Baby Eczema Treatment
Safe for rolling babies
You have probably wrapped or swaddled your eczema baby for as long as possible to stop your baby scratching during sleeptimes and wondered when to stop swaddling them?
Once they have learned to roll it is no longer safe practice to continue wrapping or swaddling them, as they need their hands/arms to roll themselves back over. Add to this, the approximate age of babies learning roll often coincides with the onset of baby eczema, and you are left with few options to relieve your child’s discomfort and minimise the damage and lack of baby sleep caused by scratching.
Adjustable, enclosed sleeves will prevent scratching while still allowing your baby to have free arm movement to roll themselves over or even put their dummies back in their mouths and cuddle soothers or soft toys.
Use in all seasons
Bamboo Bubby Bags™ are made of extra soft 70% bamboo fabric & 30% organic cotton interlock fabric, which along with many other benefits to sensitive skin, consists of fibres that expand when warm to let skin breathe, and contract when cool to trap heat close to the body. It will keep your baby’s body temperature regulated, prevent additional itching from overheating and keep them warm in the colder months.
In sleeping bags, warmth is measured using a TOG rating which is an international standard measurement of blanket or sleeping bag’s thermal effectiveness (or warmth). The higher the number, the better it is for ensuring warmth. The TOG rating for the Bamboo Bubby Bag™ would be 1-1.5 TOG, which is slightly higher than sleeping bags made of cotton sheeting (usually 0.5-1 TOG). This is due to the thermo-regulating nature of the bamboo fabric.This makes it suitable for use all year round to help keep your baby bedding temperature at an ideal level for baby eczema allowing your baby to sleep safely and comfortably.
One size saves money
There are so many expenses when you have a baby, the last thing you need is to have to continually upgrade the sleeping bags as your baby grows – and they grow so quickly! The Bamboo Bubby Bags™ innovative design with adjustable sleeves allowing it to fit your baby throughout their entire first 2+ years. The unique sleeve design works similarly to growsuits that have handcovers which fold over. There is also a snap press in the underarm of the sleeve allowing the armhole to be adjusted to smaller babies and then left unclipped as babies grow bigger.
The length of the Bamboo Bubby Bag has been generously designed to fit the height of an average 2-3 year old. When using the sleeping bag with smaller babies, they can be placed on their back, in the bag with their feet near the bottom of the mattress as recommended by SIDS for Kids to ensure safe sleeping. Excess fabric at the bottom of the bag can be tucked underneath the end of the cot mattress which will also encourage safer sleeping on their back.
Keeps hands warm
The Bamboo sleeping Bag completely enclosed and adjustable sleeve design provides the best of both worlds when your baby is too old for swaddling, but still requires a sense of security and warmth to sleep well and self settle during the night. Its innovative sleeve design and thermo regulating bamboo fabric will stop your baby waking from cold hands and give you both the rest you need.
Research has shown that babies who are swaddled or wrapped will sleep longer and better than those who aren’t due to the warmth and security that swaddling provides. What happens though when your baby begins to roll over and can no longer be safely wrapped and it is time to transition from swaddling to sleeping bag? Night time or early morning waking often increase as temperatures drop during these times causing hands to get cold which is then exacerbated feelings of insecurity from no longer being swaddled.
Easy night time changes
The Bamboo Bubby Bag’s nifty double ended zipper makes night time nappy changes quick and easy. Simply unzip from the bottom, change nappy and pull the zip back down. No need to undress your baby and cause unnecessary disruptions to their precious baby sleep time, meaning you can get back to sleep faster too!
Cot linen alternative
The Bamboo Bubby Bag™ bamboo sleeping bag is a safe cot linen alternative to blankets and sheets and is like wrapping your baby in beautiful, stretchy bamboo fabric sheets. Made of the softest 70% bamboo/30% organic cotton fabric, it will keep your baby at a comfortable temperature all year around due to its thermo-regulating properties. This is especially important during eczema treatment for babies.
SIDS and Kids suggest that baby sleeping bags may assist in reducing the incidence of SUDI (sudden unexpected death in infancy), SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) and fatal sleep accidents. This may be due to the fact that sleeping a baby in a sleeping bag will prevent bedclothes covering the baby’s face and it will also prevent legs from dangling out from between cot rails.
A Bamboo Bubby Bag™ means you can rest assured that they are covered no matter how much they move around and especially for older babies or toddlers when it is time to stop swaddling or wrapping
