Baby Care Sheepskins.

Keep your baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

We would like to let the customers know about the baby sheepskins we sell. We have recieved many questions regarding these and would like to show you the benifits of sheepskins for prem babies, babies and children.

More than a million babies around the world in the last twenty years can thank a young New Zealand mother for her wonderful idea.
She had seen long term hospital patients benefit from lying on sheepskin bed pads, and felt that sheepskin might help relieve the pain of her child who was in hospital with a broken thigh.
It worked. The sheepskin gave her child great comfort and from that was born the idea that resulted in today's Babycare lambskins.

The mother then thought that newborn babies might benefit from the security and comfort of a natural wool sleeper. She explained her idea to Bowron. The Bowron researchers, in co-operation with the Wool Research Organisation, began a four year development programme to find the perfect lambskin for babies.

After an extensive testing program with the New Zealand Parents Centres Inc, the Babycare lambskins went on sale in New Zealand and Australia in 1970 and were an instant success. Today Babycare lambskins are sought after by caring mothers all over the world.

A thoughtful gift

One for the carseat, one for play and one for on the move! The ideal gift! that goes on giving...
Babycare is a great comfort for older children when ill or convalescing in bed.

Calms and Soothes

Soft wool fibres are a delight to touch. Calms and soothes babies. Helps comfort colicky children too.

Perfect all year round

Nature's insulation. Wool keeps baby warm and cosy in cold weather. In warm weather, wool absorbs moisture, which is then released into the air ensuring baby stays drier and comfortable at all times.

Sanitized for lasting hygiene

Babycare Lambskins are sanitized to ensure protection against bacteria through many washes.

In the stroller, car seat, playpen or on the floor, Babycare provides a warm and secure baby comforter 24 hours a day.

Babies love the feel of soft wool fibres. Babies sleep longer and more soundly on Babycare Lambskins, leaving more time for mother.

Comfort all the way

No crinkles or creases. No pressure points that cause discomfort. Journeys in car seats with Babycare means happy baby and parents.

The warm play rug

Baby's favourite lambskin makes a great play rug. Keeps baby and friends off cold floors too.


When used as an item of bedding, it is recommended that children under the age of one are positioned on their backs and lambskin is covered with a sheet.

Thermal control

Bowron Babycare is perfect all year round and can be used in a variety of ways. Wool is nature's insulation keeping baby warm and cosy in cold weather. In hot weather wool absorbs moisture which is then released into the air, leaving baby drier and more comfortable.
However, as wool has superb insulation features, parents can generally use less clothing, less bedding and lower room temperatures to avoid overheating baby while sleeping.


Babycare lambskin require less care than other baby bedding. Just machine wash and dry once a month. Full care instructions are attached to each skin.
A daily airing keeps the lambskin fresh for baby. Small slightly soiled areas can be sponged off.

The most important thing about buying a sheepskin for a baby is to make sure it is suitable for babies as many of the pure white sheepskins available on the market have been bleeched and this is very unhealthy for babies skin, especially thoses babies with skin conditions, asthma or ezema.

Yes the baby care sheepskins are expensive but they last forever if taken care of as guided by the manufacturer.

Our daughter recieved one as a gift when she was a baby and it is still in her bed now nearly 6 years down the line.

Any questions just ask.
