choosing a cot mattress
The Lullaby Trust recommends you buy a new cot mattress, or - if using a second-hand mattress - carefully check that it's clean, dry and free from cracks or tears. Your cot mattress should be firm, with no sagging and fit the cot snugly, with no gaps.
Mattresses tend to come in two sizes, standard and continental and should fit the equivalent sizes of cots commonly available in the UK. My Babiie's cot mattresses come in varying sizes to fit a wider range of cots. Please check that you select there correct size you need before purchasing online.
The mattress needs to be kept as clean and hygienic as possible. My Babiie Cot Mattresses all come with an easy to use zip-off cover that can be removed for easy washing. The cover can also be wipe-cleaned for cleaning small spills or markings. Alternatively, you could use a mattress protector, which covers the mattress to stop it getting wet if the baby dribbles or their nappy leaks.
You should choose a mattress that feels firm rather than soft, your baby needs support while he is sleeping. My Babiie's Cot Mattresses are all passed through very strict UK safety standards and are promised to support your baby whilst they sleep and give them (and you!) a perfect nights sleep.
My Babiie Cot Mattresses all carry the BSI number BS 1877-10:1997.
