I purchase these sheepskin rugs for newborns - we originally bought them in Australia for our kids, and have LOVED them ever since! Cool in the summer, warm in winter, easy to lay on the floor for baby to be snuggly clean & safe...for our toddler years ago it became his “blankie”, of which we still have a “piece” left for a keepsake 29 years later! Doctor approved, machine washable...mother natures perfection!
I ordered a baby sheepskin for our daughters baby who is due in April. Both of our children grew up with a 'lambie' to lay on. It was the best thing ever. when we visited friends and the kids got tired we just lay them down on their sheepskin and they went right to sleep. No matter where we traveled if we had their lambies they always had a good night sleep. When our daughter found out she was pregnant one of the first things she asked was would we buy her baby a sheepskin! I have purchased several over the years for friends babies and Sheepskin Town is great to work with. The sheepskin is of the highest quality and they ship quickly!
My beagle has torn his ACL and is doing a lot more laying around than usual, so I wanted something to add warmth and cushion to his bed. He loves laying on this baby sheepskin, though he is a bit disappointed that the leather underside makes it difficult for him to arrange to his satisfaction. I like that it stays in place and provides full coverage for him when he is all stretched out. My chihuahua also likes the feel of this plush bed layer. I ordered a yoga mat too, and the minute I put that on the couch my chihuahua settled in for a nap. I'm sure he likes the fact that it is soft and warm. I am impressed with both products and may have to order more so I have my very own yoga mat.
I just bought my third Baby Sheepskin for my third grandchild. I love these sheepskins after purchasing one for my own daughter. It's really a life long gift and has so many other uses beyond infant care. I used it when I was pregnant for my sore aching hips and back, then passed it on to my daughter when she was born, and now it hangs on the back of an antique chair! This is a timeless gift of great value. The lambskins are very nice and thick compared to the cheap versions in supermarkets. I highly recommend this product for both its quality and longevity. After 20 years it looks as good as it ever did. Note: Washing it changes the texture of the wool a bit, but it functions the same.
This is the second sheepskin that I've purchased from sheepskintown.com. It arrived within days, well packaged in a protective breathable zippered case. The underside of this hide was flawless. I am very happy with my purchase over all. Until you've had one against your skin you won't know what you're missing (very therapeutic)
