This is part of the range of Precious Protechtor products from Scottish company Baby Pink or Blue, with built in anti-bacterial properties, designed to help protect your baby from infections. (Premature and tiny babies are particularly vulnerable to infection.) The products are made from an innovative material, made using so-called 'nano technology', which allows the metal, silver, to be incorporated into the fabric. Silver is a naturally anti-bacterial product, very safe to use, and with no side effects. Silver has the ability to kill off bacteria which can lead to infections such as E Coli and MRSA.
This soft and silky fabric is not only anti-bacterial, but also has a thermo regulation system which moves moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric. The fabric then dries faster than normal materials. So baby's skin stays warm and dry, with no moisture pockets developing around them.
The Vest can be machine washed, using your normal washing powder or liquid. Washing will not affect the anti-bacterial properties of the fabric. It is not necessary to use any softener as the fabric is very soft already, but it is perfectly safe to do so if you wish. The Vest can be air dried, or tumble dried on a 'delicate fabrics' setting.
The Vest is available in white, pink or blue in the following sizes:
Petite 4 lb – 6 lb
Newborn 7 lb – 11 lb
0 – 3 months 12 lb – 15 lb
Perfect for use at the hospital for sick or premature babies, or at home. For playtime or sleeptime.
NOTE : The other items in the Precious Protechtor range include the anti-bacterial Baby Blanket, Dribble Drier, Babygro and Scratch Mitts. These are all available from Olivers Babycare.
