Four things you need to know about junior duvets

What you should consider before deciding which junior duvet is best.

If you're already ready to find the best junior duvet, skip the following and scroll down to see selected junior duvets

How big is a junior duvet?

The size of a junior duvet is usually 100 x 140 cm. This means that it is about twice as long as a baby's duvet. These are the standard measurements, but there are some junior duvets that have other measurements. Always check this before buying bedding for the duvet.

Junior duvet - when?

It varies a lot when you switch to a junior duvet. You have to look at how big your child is, and not least whether he or she seems happy with their duvets. Immediately, children should not change to a junior duvet until they are 7-8 months old and can turn around themselves. A junior duvet is obviously bigger than a baby duvet, and can therefore quickly become too heavy for a small child who can't get it off by himself if it gets too hot.

What is an hypoallergenic duvet?

Dust mites do not thrive in an hypoallergenic duvet. Always check if the junior duvet is hypoallergenic before you buy it. The most important thing is that the duvet can be washed at 60 degrees, as all dust mites die at this temperature.

Buying a used junior duvet - is it a good idea?

It is recommended that duvets and mattresses are purchased new. This is because they become less resistant to dust mites over time. Therefore, it is a good idea to buy the duvet from new.

Junior duvet from Cocoon

A really nice duvet from the brand Cocoon. The duvet is filled with the delicious fibers from the Kapok tree. This junior duvet is both hypoallergenic, temperature regulating and organic. In addition, the production is sustainable and thus harms the environment as little as possible. A really nice duvet for children who easily get too hot or cold at night.

Available in the following sizes

  • 100 x 130 cm
  • 100 x 140 cm

What is kapok fibre?

The fibres are taken from a Kapok tree. The seeds look like the picture, from which the natural fibres can be extracted. No chemicals are used in the process, so you get a sustainable and ecological manufacturing process. The Kapok fibres grow on trees, and keep coming without the tree having to be felled or otherwise damaged.

The fibres have unique properties. They are temperature regulating, hypoallergenic and antibacterial, and of course an all-natural material. Duvets with these fibres, e.g. from Cocoon, are a bit more expensive than other duvets, but in return the duvet has unique properties.
