What is the best face mask for kids?
Face masks should ideally be comfortable, breathable, and fit around the face without any gaps. While you can get smaller, disposable surgical face masks, the best option for kids are reusable cloth masks.
A cloth mask for children is generally a similar designed as surgical mask, but since they are cotton they are more comfortable to wear with high breathability. Cloth masks have several great selling points. They are reusable, which means that you can wash them instead of having to keep re-stocking your supply. And we all know how wasteful kids can be, so sometimes the reusable option is just the most sensible option.
The cloth mask should have multiple layers of fabric like our three layer cloth masks, and adjustable earloops which can helpful when trying to get it to fit snugly on your little one’s face.
At what age can children start wearing face masks?
Children can start to wear face masks after 2 years of age. Never try to put a face mask or face covering on a child under 2; it puts them at risk of suffocation, strangulation and choking. Their best protection is to keep them at home, or if you must go out, maintain social distancing, keep the pram roof down and try to minimise time spent in public spaces.
How to get my child to wear a mask
If your child is nervous about wearing a face mask, finding them a fun pattern that they like can go a long way towards making them more comfortable with it. Our kids cloth masks for sale can help with this with our three different pattern choices.
Now you know where to buy kids cloth masks, you can show them the patterns and let them choose. Then your kids can show off their own individual style in their mask with cool colours and patterns! All helping to make wearing masks a lot more fun and a little less scary for kids.
Another thing you should do before you put masks on the kids is have a conversation with them to make sure they understand why they’re wearing the mask.
You need to check that it fits properly and that they don’t feel like it is impacting their breathing. Otherwise, chances are you’ll find that they try to take it off.
It can take a little while for them to get used to wearing the mask, especially if they are young, so be patient. Having something covering your nose and mouth can also be distracting and feel restrictive if you aren’t used to it. Keep an eye on your children to check that they aren’t pulling on, or continually touching their masks.
If you find that wearing a mask makes your kids touch their face more often than when they don’t wear it, it may be a better option to leave the mask off and rely on social distancing and minimising time in public.
