How to stop mosquitoes?

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, you have never spent the night with a mosquito.” – Ugandan Proverb

When we designed the the SleepSpace – BabyHub’s new travel cot – we knew it would help provide a solution to troublesome travel cots; providing a lightweight and stylish option that would fit in modern homes and come into its own when travelling aboard. However, we didn’t expect the favourite feature to be the fitted mosquito net. This allows parents to create a safe space for babies, and toddlers who like to stand, that’s completely free from mosquitoes.

Did you know more deaths are associated with mosquitoes than any other animal on the planet?

This is because of the sheer number of deadly diseases they can carry, including: malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis.

We’ve already received lots of interest from families in regions where diseases caused by mosquitoes are a common problem. To help tackle this, and provide support where we can, for every SleepSpace purchased we will include a fitted mosquito net cover. We are also contacting charities to offer sample SleepSpaces – with the fitted nets – to help fight against malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases.

If you are involved in providing protection for babies against mosquito-transmitted diseases, or are a parent living in or travelling to an area where this is a cause for concern, you can order the SleepSpace here and our inbox is always open to help provide further information and support.
