Neonatal & Paediatric Overlay

Comfort for babies' and toddlers' delicate skin

At a size perfect for newborns, the Neonatal Overlay is small enough to place in an incubator, cot, or Moses basket to protect your baby’s skin and help them sleep soundly. 

For older babies or toddlers, the Paediatric Overlay fits perfectly in a pushchair, cot bed, or even on the floor for a cosy patch of Sheepskin to rest and play on.  

Did you know?

There have been a number of studies that illustrate the benefits for babies sleeping on and under wool.*

  • The rate of weight gain in underweight new-borns was 61% higher when sleeping on a wool overlay compared with a cotton sheet.
  • Jaundiced new-borns sleeping on wool were more settled when sleeping compared with those on cotton. Only around 30% of babies on wool cried compared with 67% on cotton

Shear Comfort XD1900 

Fabric-backed medical sheep's wool, unique to Shear Comfort

XD1900 is medical sheep's wool unique to Shear Comfort, with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins - which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties.

This is achieved by weaving natural wool to a fabric backing, and is not to be confused with artificial sheepskins created from synthetic ‘wool.’ We use natural wool, and treat it to ensure it can be repeatedly washed up to 80°C. Plus, because XD1900 has no leather backing, it can be washed with normal household detergent.  

Shear Comfort Natural

Our original medical sheepskin, on the original leather backing

The Shear Comfort Natural skins can be washed with Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo, or another appropriate leather wash at temperatures up to 80° C.

All Shear Comfort products are machine washable, and guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes.

Neonatal Size: 50 x 30 cm

Paediatric Size: 74 x 45 cm
