Choosing the right mattress for your little one will optimize the chances of you both getting a decent night’s sleep! The most secure place for your little one to sleep is in a crib, cot or cot bed in your room for the initial six months and a safe mattress should fit their bed with no gaps.
Here are a few things to consider when choosing a mattress for your little one …
THE FIT OF THE MATTRESS
Getting the right size and shape of mattress is important so your little one cannot get their little limbs stuck around the sides. There should be no small gap around the edges or sides, wrap your child up easily, with any blankets no higher than around their shoulders.
Many cots are sold alongside mattresses designed specifically to fit the bed size. Your mattress will need to be at least 8 to 10cm deep to support your little one while he sleeps. Babylove Playpen Mattress Fitted Sheet is designed for Babylove’s playpen mattress and other similar size of mattress.
