As we’ve discussed in past articles, we all tend to be mindful of what materials we trust in products for our little ones, as we’re always looking out for their well-being. We seek out what options could prove most hypoallergenic and will provide the lowest potential of discomfort or irritation for our children, especially in reference to their bedding.

So what materials and substances are best and which ones should we be looking out for? Let’s talk about that.

Hypoallergenic Options

Some materials and substances wick away potential for allergic irritants better than others. While there is no exact science to creating materials for bedding that will be 100% non-allergenic to all people, we at least have an understanding of what can prove most irritating to the most people.

Some of the materials that are most trusted in the hypoallergenic pool are memory foam and synthetic. Since these products are produced from man-made materials, they have a lower likelihood of causing any sort of allergic issues. If your kiddos are showing signs of allergic sensitivity, these may be good options.

Other Options

Other options for pillow filling are cotton, wool, down, and latex. While these are great materials that will make for a comfortable nights rest that will, for the most part, not bring about any allergic issues, they still stand in as the materials with the highest likelihood for reactions.

With these being produced from animal fur or byproducts, there is a better chance that these may render allergic reactions in time. For any little ones that may have a greater chance of a reaction, these may be options to avoid.


To conclude, different products effect different children or adults differently than others. It is important to understand your own or your children’s tolerance to different materials from an allergic standpoint, and consider all options from there moving forward.
