How to Avoid Baby Bald Spots
Ordinary cotton and bamboo sheets twist and snag hair causing knotting, matting and eventually the dreaded baby bald spot.
So why is Silk the answer?
Silk reduces friction by up to 43%, allowing hair to glide over the mattress or pillow surface, eliminating friction to prevent baby bald spots, frizz and knotting. Silk also benefits pre-existing bald spots, with the reduction in friction allowing for noticeable re growth in 2-3 weeks.
Recommended by dermatologists, asthma and eczema specialists, Pure and natural 100% Mulberry Silk is breathable, hypoallergenic, and non-absorbent, meaning it won’t strip natural oils from baby’s skin or hair.
Created by a mum for mums, Silky Tots Silk Sleep collection is the gentlest choice for baby.
No More Knotty Tots
"We love our Silk Cot Slip, we have been using it for about two weeks now and Vivienne's hair has started to grow back and the bald area has nearly gone. Before we started using the silk slip Vivienne would wake up with a very dry face and I'd have to put moisturiser on her everyday, since using the silk slip her skin has become so soft and it's never dry! Amazing xx"
- Vivienne Z.
My son Harry lost a lot of hair by 5 months old and had tiny little dreadlocks where his hair rubbed on his sheets. After only 4 nights using Silky Tots I noticed a massive difference. His hair was growing back and no tangles! Will never be without our silky tot sheets now
What A Great Product
My poor baby girl had eczema on her scalp and would rock her head from side to side to soothe the itch. This caused her to have a big bald patch on the back of her head. We were able to get her eczema under control but she still rocked her head back and forth as a way to settle herself to sleep causing the bald patch to stay! Since purchasing the Silky Tots Cot Slip within 6 weeks bub's hair has grown back and is continuing to grow. A big relief! Thanks Silky Tots x
Silky Tots are quite simply AMAZING! I started using my Silky Tots when my little one was a newborn and I noticed little hairs on his bassinet sheet after naps. The slip helped immediately, he was the only bubba in mothers group without a bald spot! We now have the gorgeous mist coloured slip in his big boy cot and are still enjoying a bald spot free existence! Thank you Silky Tots! xxx

The Benefits of Silk
Sleep Soundly without Allergens
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic due to its high protein content, which prevents the growth of micro-organisms, mould and bacteria. This incredible quality makes silk in-hospitable for dust mites and allergens - perfect for allergy sufferers or asthmatics.
Silk is also odour and soil resistant making it a much cleaner sleep material than traditional bamboo and cotton.
Silk fibres wick moisture away from the skin keeping it naturally hydrated. Traditional bedding such as cotton is much more porous than silk, so regular pillowcases absorb and hold moisture, while silk leaves that hydration right where it belongs; in the skin and hair. While Silk is moisture wicking, it is still very quick drying and allows skin to breathe.
A Gentle Sleep for All Seasons
Silk is a natural insulator. Depending on the temperature, silk either draws heat away from the body, or traps in the warmth. In cold weather, the large fibres insulate to reduce heat loss from the body. In warm weather, the silk fleece helps shed excess heat and wicks sweat away from the body.
Benefits Aren't Limited to Babies
The Silky soft surface of Silky Tots Silk Pillow Slips are the perfect anti-ageing and hair protective sleep environment for kids and adults alike.
As celebrated Dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross explains, “Persistently pressing our faces into a pillow causes trauma to the skin. Over time, this trauma, aggravated by the friction of a cotton pillowcase, can create permanent creases as our collagen breaks down.”
Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky-smooth surface can reduce that effect in the long run.
Silky Tots innovative Silk bedding allows for the gentlest sleep for your little one. Recommended by dermatologists, asthma & eczema specialists, the benefits of Silk have been known and used to care for skin & hair for hundreds of years, but Silky Tots is the first company (worldwide) to make these benefits accessible and safe for babies and children.
