What Are the Best Face Masks for Kids?
People have used cotton face masks and toddler face masks to protect themselves and their children from infectious respiratory diseases for ages. Despite the debate about their suitability for medical professionals, the CDC has recommended cloth masks for protection against COVID-19 in community settings.
The CDC explains that multilayer fabric masks designed for a snug fit around the face may provide reasonable protection. If worn and used correctly, they will help to prevent the spread of coronavirus in communities.
If you have small children, you may have realized that shopping for a toddler face mask is not always a breeze. They are not very common, and sometimes you don’t get the right size for your child. Fortunately, the CDC’s endorsement of cloth face masks has inspired us to design elegant kids masks with child size face mask dimensions for ages 2 years and older (the CDC advises against children under 2 wearing face masks).
Importance of Toddler Face Masks
There are many sick and asymptomatic COVID-19 patients within our communities. One way to prevent infection is by staying at home and practicing social distancing in public.
However, children may not make the best estimation of six feet. They also like to mingle with their peers. The best way to minimize the risk of your children getting infected is by buying them kids masks.
Besides protecting them, experts say that children can feel more confident when wearing face masks. They can be sure about their safety and pleased that they aren’t spreading germs to others.
What Are the Measurements of a Face Mask?
Child size face mask measurements are critical when shopping for a toddler face mask. Find a comfortable cloth mask that covers the mouth and nose comfortably. If it’s too tight, the child may be uncomfortable. Make it too loose, and there's no point in wearing the face mask.
Our face mask for kids measure about 8 inches across and around 4.5 inches at the widest point. The adult size is approximately 9.5 inches across and about 6 inches at the widest point. It should allow you to knot the ear loops to give your child or yourself the right fit.
Our face masks are made with three layers, 2 layers of a tightly woven cotton are used for a soft lining for the mask and linen/cotton blend. Hand-stretched nylon straps are used instead of elastic and are so much comfortable and easier on the ears. They can be tied if there's need for a tighter fit.
You may order a set of customized adults and kids face masks for sale online for you and your children. When everyone wears one, the small kids will like their pieces and adjust quickly to the coverings.
How Do You Make a Kids Face Mask Safe?
Every child should have at least two kids reusable face masks with multiple layers of breathable fabric. The mask should cover the nose and mouth securely to prevent unwanted exposure to germs.
While a seal against elements is desirable, the mask should not cause discomfort or allergies. Ensure your child wears a clean kids reusable face mask made of natural fabrics like cotton and linen.
The kid should be able to wear and remove the mask without assistance to reduce suffocation risk. Infants below two years age should not wear face coverings. Use a carrier to carry your small baby to the public and cover it.
Preventing young children from messing with their face mask can be challenging. However, they can follow directions if you keep reminding them not to touch their reusable masks. Remind your kids to wash their hands with soap and water soon after removing their masks.
