Guide: Duvets for the little ones in the family

Great sleep is important. Especially, when it comes to children. A great duvet and pillow can make a huge difference for a good night's sleep, for both you, your baby and junior. Type of filling and degree of heat are important parameters when choosing a baby duvet or junior duvet. Here, it is important to individually examine the needs of the children. Does my child get very hot at night? Or does my child need a little bit more weight and "a hug" from the duvet to calm down.

With the Kiddy series from Ringsted Dun, you get a wide selection of hypoallergenic duvets and pillows in both baby and junior sizes. Both sizes are available with two different filling types - musk down and duck down. When junior is too big for the duvet, the duvets and pillows from Ringsted Duns H.C. Andersen series (The Swineherd and Jack the Dullard) offers you fairytale comfort.


Baby duvet or junior duvet – which size to choose?

A child who sleeps safely and calmly. There is absoultely nothing better. Most parents might give a nod in recognition. Soft, lovely surroundings and a great duvet are a perfect starting point. Here are a few great rules of thumb before you buy a baby duvet or junior duvet. Your baby should not disappear completely in a duvet, just as your older junior should not get his feet cold during the night either.

A baby duvet measures 100 cm in length, while a junior duvet measures 140 cm in length. We recommend there is enough room to put the duvet around both small toes and cold shoulders. So measure your child before buying a new duvet. A child typically uses a baby duvet until the age of two, while the change from junior duvet to adult duvet depends on several things, such as your child's height and the time for a bigger bed. A new bed and a new size of duvet often goes hand in hand. 

To do – before you buy a baby duvet or junior duvet 

  • Measure your child's height
  • Measure the length of your child's bed
  • Evaluate your child's night sleep – is your child hot or cold at night? 

Control allergies: Check the marks

Besides length and degree of warmth, it is also important to keep track of the marks when choosing a baby duvet or junior duvet. Only the best is good enough, especially when it comes to your child. We recommend you to particular pay attention to duvets that are made of breathable natural materials, such as down and cotton.

How to maintain your baby and junior duvet

Just like duvets for adults, baby and junior duvets also need a little care after a good night's. You can advantageously give the duvet a little shake in the morning, so filling is evenly distributed again. It is also a great idea waiting to put the bedspread on, so the duvet can breathe and the night sweat can evaporate.

Duvets for the smallest children need to be washed more often - it's completely natural. That is why it s important that you choose a good quality duvet that can withstand being put in the washing machine if any accidents happens. Therefore, we always recommend you to read the wash- and care instructions.
