Handy tips for helping your new born enjoy healthy and nourishing sleep

Why choose a firmer sleeping surface?

Why choose a firmer sleeping surface?

It might be tempting to go for a soft and cushy mattress as it seems comfier.

However, it’s actually really important to look for a firmer mattress for your little one.

That’s because if the sleeping surface is soft and bumpy, your new born may get stuck in a dangerous position – such as on their front – which can affect their breathing.

Also, don’t worry if it doesn’t seem totally comfortable to you. New borns need a firmer surface and will find it perfectly comfortable too.

Size matters

Size matters

When buying a new cot bed mattress pay careful attention to the size of the mattress.

This sounds obvious doesn’t it? But that’s because it’s strongly advised you allow no more than 3cm between the sides and edges of the mattress and the cot.

This is to make sure your baby or toddler don’t trap their legs or arms down the sides in their sleep.

All of our selected Expert’s Choice mattresses measure a standard 70 x 140cm.

Invest in a new mattress

Invest in a new mattress

It’s advised that when you have a new baby you buy a new mattress.

Independent consumer group, Which?, have found older mattresses lose their firmness over-time, which may mean it can’t provide your new born with a safe sleeping environment.

Some research has also linked older mattresses with an increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) – though this is yet to be proven.

Only accept the highest safety standards
