A lot of homes around the world have pets, in fact about 65% of US households own a pet. Some of us prefer that our pets sleep in our bed, while others choose to crate their furry friends for the night. According to Sleep.org, there are many positives and negatives to allowing your beloved pets to share your bed.
Let’s start with the positives (because who likes bad news). Co sleeping with your favorite household pets’ decreases stress, anxiety and depression, not to mention provides companionship and relaxation.
Some of the downsides however, could include potential sleep disruption, allergies, asthma and an increased risk of illnesses carried by your darling animals.
We understand there are many concerns with letting your pets sleep in your bed, not to mention the hair, dirt and dander that come along with it. At Yogabed, we understand pets are family, and they deserve to be treated as such. This is one of the many great reasons why our products contain a Zip N’ Wash cover.
