I’m glad dust mites are too small to see because honestly， they’re nasty looking. Luckily， even with exceptional eye sight， you’re not going see a creature that measures a fraction of a millimeter (and they aren’t going to see you as they have no eyes).pillow cases vintage
As allergies goaccent pillow case baby burlap sofa， reactions to dust mites are common， with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) estimating around 20 million Americans suffer from dust mite allergies. Ironically， for a creature that can jump start breathing and asthma problems in people， the little eight-legged creature itself doesn’t have a respiratory system.
The American College of Allergy， Asthma &； Immunology says high levels of dust mite exposure is a significant factor in the development of asthma in children， so it makes sense to take precautions， particularly for babies who can’t use words to explain what ails them. Because the crib mattress is the most prominent piece of furniture where babies might spend half of their day sleeping and playing， this is the first best place to begin. While there is disagreement among experts on the overall effectiveness of allergy encasements for mattresses， their usage continues to be recommended by the AAFA and other major asthma foundations.
The waterproof surface of Naturepedic crib mattresses already acts as a dust mite barrier that covers the entire mattress. Seamless models mean no access points for mites or contaminants and also mean an easy wipe-clean surface. Experts recommend washing sheets at least weekly for dust mite control， but you’ll be likely doing that anyway with a baby.
Our crib mattresses are waterproofed with food grade polyethylene， meaning they do not have phthalates which are found in dust mite covers made with vinyl. We also offer a 2-sided mattress for older children with one side waterproofed， so it has a dust mite barrier on one side.
Dust mites are a part of nature， so you won’t eliminate them， particularly in humid climates， but you can limit their allergenic effects. Some secondary efforts， according to the AAFA， include avoiding wall-to-wall carpeting in bedrooms and using blinds instead of fabric curtains (or at least washing fabric curtains often).
Additionally， the group recommends avoiding uncovered pillows and down-filled covers， recommendations geared more toward older kids.？For babies， to reduce the risk of SIDS the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends not placing pillows， covers， bumper or stuffed animals in a crib at all.

Saint Valentine's Day or, the Feast of Saint Valentine, now more commonly known as just Valentine's Day, is observed on February 14th each year. Today it is celebrated in many countries and Christian denominations around the world, although mostly in the West. In the UK for example, it is traditional to send cards, flowers, chocolates and other gifts as a mark of affection for a loved one or special person in our lives, or to trigger a new romance.To keep it very simple, it began as a religious celebration of one (or more) early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most likely or popular belief is that Saint Valentine was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers of the Roman Empire who were forbidden to marry. The Roman Emperor Claudius II supposedly forbade soldiers to marry in order to grow his army, believing that married men did not make good soldiers.According to legend (or popular belief), Saint Valentine is said to have cut hearts from parchment and given them to the soldiers as a reminder of God's love and to encourage them to remain faithful Christians. These parchment hearts are possibly the origin of the widespread use of heart symbols and motifs in current Valentine's Day 'correspondence'.During his imprisonment, Valentine is said to have performed a miracle by healing the blind daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend again says that before his execution he wrote her a farewell which read "from your Valentine". This expression was henceforth adopted and is still used today.The day first became associated with 'romantic love' by the legendary English poet Geoffrey Chaucer, during the Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their feelings for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greetings cards (known as "valentines").The words 'Roses are Red' are traceable as far back in literary history as 1590 and the modern clichè Valentine's poem which begins with the same, can be found in a collection of English nursery rhymes dating back to 1784 and would have read as follows:Since the 19th century, handmade valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards and a much more commercial approach to the occasion.Today, Valentine's Day symbols also include doves, winged cupids, cute teddy bears and red roses as well as the traditional heart symbol. It has now become a day where the romantics amongst us mark the occasion in a number of ways. Everything from a simple, anonymous, greeting card, to a cosy, intimate, candle lit dinner or grand gestures like diamond rings, proposals and romantic weekends in Paris!We don't sell greetings cards or teddy bears at Terry's and we can't book you a romantic weekend in Paris or send you a diamond ring, but we can help you create a cosy room setting for a romantic night in with the special person in your life.So as usual, I've put together a few tips and some carefully selected product, to help you to create the look and the ambience you're after in your home, without breaking the banklet's face it, you never know, you might need that extra bit of cash to put towards the diamond ring?!
