We now live in a generation where parents greatly consider the comfort of the mattresses they are providing for their babies. Lately, there have been reports of SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome cases. This is a condition when the baby suddenly dies for unexplained reasons. There are experts that say mattresses can contribute to this condition. This is why parents have to be more concerned about the mattresses they are providing for their babies.
Finding a good combination of spring count and steel gauge is important in selecting a good Natural Baby mattress. One with a coil count of around 150 with a gauge of 13.5 will provide even and firm support and will be reasonably priced.
Comfort. There’s a reason why pure cotton and linen sheets are considered luxurious. You just can’t deny the fact that good quality natural materials are more comfortable than cheap synthetics, especially when it comes to bedding. Natural fibres in the mattress core allow air to circulate within the mattress, and organic cotton ticking keeps baby cooler while he sleeps.
It is very important that the crib mattress fits snugly in the crib. Make sure there is no gap between the edge of the baby mattress and the sides of the crib. The mattress is too small if you can fit two of your fingers between the crib and mattress. Your baby could possibly slip into this gap and be injured.
Over the last 2 decades we have now become of another nightmare in the baby’s room- SIDS or sudden death infant syndrome. While this puzzling disorder has caught the imagination of the industry, we still do not know what causes it or how best to prevent it. Countless babies have died and everyday, there are new reports on how best to prevent the disorder. In the beginning the disorder was thought to be related to some chemicals in the mattress or the crib. This idea soon died down and now there is belief that perhaps it is the way the babies sleep.
Check for allergens. Some organic crib mattresses can contain materials that will cause an allergic reaction in your baby. The usual culprits are those made with wool, which is a known allergen, and those that are made with natural latex. Coconut fibre is often dipped in latex too, so avoid it if you know your child is prone to allergies.
Crib mattress pads are like a covering for your mattress. They are waterproof. They soak whatever falls on them and make sure it doesn’t get absorbed down to the mattress. Thus, they remain dry and your baby’s sleep is not disturbed. Cleaning mattresses can be a big headache since wetting the bed is common and you’ll have to keep washing it again and again. Crib mattress pads make it extremely easy for you. You don’t need to worry about anything whatsoever when it comes to cleaning crib mattress pads.
The flow of air is considered minutely while designing any mattress. It helps the baby get the right angle when he sits or sleeps on it. The air circulation gives the right kind of bounce for the mattress that a baby at his age can enjoy. Therefore, there is no extra pressure on the hips or the back of the head. Another advantage of an organic crib mattress is that the baby can breathe in the most natural way. What a nice gift these mattresses can be for your new delicate guest.
