Cozy Earth Bamboo Comforter Review



It is hard to believe my first born will be four soon! Which means she will be transitioning to a big girl twin bed any day now and growing out of her merino toddler sleep bag. I am very thankful to the generous people at Cozy Earth for sending us the Twin Bamboo Comforter to keep Baby E warm and snug this winter!

If you're a parent, you know what it feels like to hear "Mom, I'm cold!" or "Mom, I'm too hot!" in the middle of the night. Stumbling through the dark you try to remedy whatever your child's blanket fails to do. Good luck trying to fall back asleep now! The Cozy Earth Bamboo Comforter changes all that because it responds to and regulates your body's temperature naturally. It's perfect for both kids and adults, no matter if you're a hot or cold sleeper.


When our comforter arrived and we opened it, the first thing that struck me is how luxurious, soft, and silky it is! Baby E definitely noted that and couldn't stop talking about the softness as she buried her face in it. It may not look like it in my photos with some artificial lighting, but the comforter is snow white. Unlike cotton, it will not 'yellow' or 'grey' over time. It is made of sustainable 100% viscose from bamboo fabric.

Baby E is very sensitive when it comes to things she is in contact with. She develops a rash from polyester and sometimes has odd rashes that I do not know the origins of. That is why I really appreciate the fact that this bamboo comforter is inhospitable to bed bugs, dust mites, and other microbes. It is also naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-mold. Now if only I could rip up the old carpet in her room and replace it with bamboo flooring!


I also have to note that it is obvious when you look at this comforter that it's very well made and high quality. It is beautifully made and I expect it to last a long time. You may also notice in these photos that it has little loops at the corners and also some on the sides - they attach to the Cozy Earth bamboo duvet cover and it keeps the comforter from bunching up and sliding inside, genius! Unfortunately we don't have a duvet cover, it does cost an extra $229.99. The comforter is great even without a duvet cover, especially because it is so easy to keep clean - but I would still recommend one.

The comforter can be machine washed on cold with some mild detergent. Another really unique benefit - you can hang it outside in the sunlight every few months and the bamboo fibers will naturally rejuvenate and refresh. Isn't that cool? It's similar to the properties of wool that we also love.


The Cozy Earth Twin Bamboo Comforter retails for $319.99, definitely not for someone on a budget and I'll be honest I would not be able to buy one. But if you can, it is a worthwhile investment considering how much time our children spend sleeping and the toxic pesticides and chemicals used in traditional fabrics, blankets, and comforters. I would say that creating a safe, non-toxic sleeping environment is almost as important as eating food that is free of pesticides and chemicals. Something to keep in mind regarding green priorities in your household!

Come back tomorrow, Wednesday, to enter to win a Cozy Earth Bamboo Twin Comforter here at Eco-Babyz! We are teaming up with other green bloggers to host this event!

  1. This is a great review i was just thinking to get new comferters for my kiddoes. I like the duck feather comferter we purchased at IKE with the duvet cover and i do agree the price of this one might be worth it, but not everyone can afford it =)

  2. As the mother of an immune compromised daughter with respiratory issues, this is really attractive to me. But, I am unable to afford the cost of one right now. I will be putting it on my long-term wish list though! Thanks for the info!

  3. WOW thanks for the review, you gave such great details about this and as we know its great when a real mom or grandmother actually gets to put something to use.. i really like that its all natural, no chemicals, which is really great, because my grandson has allergies. Although i find the price a bit high , i think in the long run it pays out more times over.. Thanks again for the info..

  5. A comforter that responds and regulates your body's temperature is the perfect thing for me.

  6. Sounds like a great comforter but I agree with Luda, a bit pricey. On the flip side, the toxicity of traditional linens does concern me....

    On another hand, my eldest just turned four last week and oh my, they grow up so fast!

  7. I heard that these comforters are awesome and they don't turn color. What I didn't know is that bed bugs are not attracted to it, thanks for posting that. I never had bugs and I want to make sure I keep it that way.

  15. I really appreciate this review. I love that it won't turn that gross yellow color and the fact that it adjusts to your body's temperature would be perfect for my son who is always complaining about being too hot, but then getting cold in the middle of the night because he kicked off his covers. I would have to say I think I am a believer!

    ReplyDelete
  16. You are very right, you can tell just by looking at the photos how well made it is... The price is a bit prohibitive, but the benefits would make it a little more budget friendly if I could only get an idea about the lifespan of these comforters? We put decent money into bedroom furniture and decorations...this would make sense if I knew it would last until my youngest left for college..lol.. (she's 12 now!)

  24. This looks like such a well-made comforter! I absolutely love the loops to keep it from bunching up in the duvet cover. So smart! I really appreciate when a company goes the extra mile to make a product that will last for a very long time.

  25. The comforter looks so nice and soft! I'm sure it would be very helpful for any child that has asthma or other breathing problem. Thanks for the review! :-)

  26. My daughter is allergic to dust mites! This is just what we will buying when she moves into her big girl bed!

  27. I have a wool comforter and you can't wash or dry it. It suppose to go to the dry cleaners. I love that the bamboo comforter can be washed at home and that it can be hung outside to be rejuvenated and refreshed. I will definitely be saving up to buy a Bamboo Comforter for my bed.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I could hardly believe this comforter is machine washable. For me that is a great consideration, because of dry cleaning costs and gas back and forth. Also kids have a way of getting their covers dirty. Great product great review.

    ReplyDelete
  29. what a beautiful comforter I love that it can be machine washed

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love that they are natural, non-toxic bedding.

  31. Sounds like exactly the type of comforter we need! DS is always too hot until in the morning, when he wakes up because he's too cold. This would be just perfect.

  32. I like that it responds to and regulates one's body's temperature naturally, and it's machine washable.

  35. This is a great review. I love the fact that is regulates your body temperature. I suffer from hot flashes but then get cold, so I'm constantly putting on and pulling on covers.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm in love with bamboo materials, and have started purchasing more and more of the clothing made of bamboo. It is surprisingly cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter and always so soft. Would love to have a comforter to sleep under!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This comforter is definately an investment but I also believe it's a great one. it'd not only last a lifetime, it's a great product. thanks for your great review. I need a comforter and I want a bamboo one so this is perfect! With so many sleepless nights with my newborn this would make any little sleep a quality one

  39. These comforters and sheets look so comfortable. I like that the fibers rejuvenate themselves in the sun. The price point is way too high for me(not in my budget).

    Really sounds great, but I'm afraid I'd have to go with something alot cheaper to fit into our budget. New sheets, pillows and comforters would be an amazing gift for Christmas though - have to show this to the husband.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very nice blankets, and they look really comfortable as well, would like to have one for myself!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love this! It looks so cozy and comfy. I'd have to give this one to my kids though for the twin size and I'd definitely be jealous! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Comforters are the most important thing in our house! I wish I could buy 3 of them for the whole family!

    ReplyDelete
  47. We also have chemically sensitive kids and myself in our household...so many toxins and our bodies can't handle the overload, just takes it's toll on your body as a whole. Disease can find you so easily and with kids, such small little bodies to defend all of this! I am completely smitten with this comforter and wish we could afford to buy for our kids and little grand daughter here. Just thinking of having all of us in bed for a full THIRD of our lives makes me realize even more the importance of keeping our bedding toxic free. I had no idea that bamboo had natural antibacterial properties. Wow, that is awesome! Kids with asthma and so many allergies like ours...well, this just makes sense. I understand the expense, but wish items like this could be more affordable so all of our kids had healthy environment for sleep and items in our homes in general. Inpermiable to bed bugs, mold, etc. So cool!

    Thanks much for the review and again pointing out a great product I'd never otherwise see (on store shelves).

  48. I love Cozy Earth & the quality that comes with their products. I want to wish everyone a blessed holiday season and also thank you for yet another awesome giveaway :D

  49. I have a bamboo sheet set that I love...cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I bet that this comforter would be the same way. I love that it comes from a sustainable source...bamboo grows like CRAZY!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I loved reading this review, I felt like I was able to "feel" the comforter by your description. Unfortunately I do not know if we will be able to afford these for our entire family we have 6 children, but I think this would be amazing for my youngest son who has a hard time going to sleep.

  63. I wish I had known about this when I was younger...we tried putting plastic around my mattress and pillows to cut out allergens because my asthma was so bad. I love that it is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-mold.

  70. I love everything about these products! Not only are they all natural, but they are beautiful, too. My grandaughter has the tendency to develop skin rashes easily,she has breathing problems, also, and this would be perfect for her.I would recommend these to everyone I know, if I win.

  80. My 5 year old daughter will not sleep in her toddler bed and sometimes I wonder if it isn't related to chemicals in the crib mattress used in it. Something more natural might make a difference for her even if she does insist on sleeping on the floor.
