We would like to introduce Zeenah from Mother of 7

Zeenah is a mommy blogger from Cape Town and her hands are full as she is a mother to twin boys in heaven, a 17 year old teenager, a 13 year old tween, a 1 year old cutie and has another set of twins on the way!

Kapas is a unique, locally made, 100% cotton baby clothing brand for little people from birth to 24 months, they also stock maternity wear, nappy bags and Thule strollers.

When I was pregnant with Zaeem, I was concerned about him inheriting sensitive skin or eczema from his dad, and of course, this is now my concern with my twins on the way too.
People who suffer from eczema know the annoyance and irritation that comes with the inflammation, itching and embarrassment that comes along with it.  So imagine the thought of having a little baby with eczema.
Did you know that not wearing 100% cotton can elevate an excema flare-up or irriate already inflamed or sensitive skin?
I was so excited when I heard about Kapas 100% cotton baby clothing.  Not only are these clothing items stylish, and protective of your baby's skin, their designs and quality are of an international standard.  Definitely a thumbs-up for me.
Why is cotton better for babies?
Cotton is a natural fiber which makes it less toxic compared with other synthetic fiber. Comfort is an inherent characteristic of clothing made from 100% cotton.  It is weather resistant yet provides breathability between clothes and the skin.  It is an all-weather or all seasons textile as cotton made clothing can resist varying types of temperature. It is ideal to wear for the summer’s heat but can also provide insulation during winter.  This is due to the fact that cotton traps the air in between fibers of the fabric.  In addition, cotton material will not stick onto your baby’s skin; thus, sufficiently insulating your little baby’s body.
Kapas seasonal collections are ever changing, providing trending styles for your little one.  The perfect fabric for our Cape Town babies,  as we sometimes experience 4 seasons in one day ;).
Are cotton clothing hypo-allergenic?
Yes, cotton made clothing are hypo-allergenic.  It is a known fact that cotton textile do not or rarely causes allergic issues or reaction. In fact, most dermatologists recommend wearing this kind of fabric in order to ward off skin allergies. Cotton does not irritate the skin; that is the reason why it is one of the usual major ingredients in medical products like gauze and bandages. KAPAS baby clothing are made of 100% cotton, protecting your baby’s sensitive skin.
How durable is cotton clothing?
Cotton fabric is considered as one of the most durable fabrics.  It doesn’t tear easily and can withstand the strongest washing machine power or even frequent hand washing. There’s no need to wash it for an extended period too, wasting so much time, power, detergent and water of course.   With that said, it is safe to say that purchasing cotton baby clothing from KAPAS is a good investments because of their inherent durability and advantages in protecting your baby’s sensitive skin.
