Making Child’s Bedroom Allergy-Free

Making Child’s Bedroom Allergy-Free

Your child’s bedroom is one of the most important rooms to tackle when it comes to a healthy environment. During that long stretch of sleep, your child may be breathing in irritants and allergy triggers. There are a few simple tips that can help you and your child enjoy a relaxing nights sleep, while you create an allergy-free bedroom for your child:

Keep pets away from the bedroom. This may be a hard task for some parents, since many children can’t sleep without their faithful companion being present. Kids just feel more protected and safe having their favorite pet around them at night. But unfortunately, pets can help trigger allergies. Many parents assume that their child is allergic to the pets fur, when in fact they are actually allergic to pet dander (dry skin and hair) or the protein found in the saliva and urine of the animal. But pet hair can cause allergies too because the protein found in the saliva can cling to the hair when the animal licks itself. Hair or fur can also pick up dust mites, pollen and even mold. Keeping pets out of the bedroom and weekly baths can help keep allergies under control.
