As a child, I suffered from severe allergies. I would be up in the middle of the night with allergy attacks so bad that I had to sleep sitting up in a recliner just so I could breathe and keep a cool washcloth on my eyes to alleviate the pain and itching that accompanied these attacks.
Often, my mother would sit up with me while I had these terrible bouts of allergies. Looking back on it now, I see how horrible it must have been for her to watch her child in such pain and suffering and not be able to do a thing about it. I’m sure it’s the same for all parents when their kids are sick or suffering from allergies in a similar way.
That’s why nowadays they’re beginning to make organic crib mattresses and other organic mattresses for kids. The materials in these mattresses are mostly hypoallergenic and have dust mite repelling qualities. Less dust mites means less allergy symptoms! They’re chemical free and contain no synthetic polyurethane, which is a material well-known for being an allergy trigger.
So if you’re up in the night with a child suffering with severe allergies, consider switching to an organic twin mattress to help alleviate some of the symptoms.
