You’ve more than likely just spent weeks, or even months deciding upon the perfect pram, moses basket, crib or cot for your baby. Now it’s time for the afterthought – you need to buy a mattress to fit it. You’re probably thinking to yourself “a mattress is a mattress, straightforward, no big deal! It’s just a mattress that’s plonked at the bottom of the carrycot or cot”.


The mattress is actually one of the most important purchases for your baby. Your baby will be spending a lot of time sleeping and playing on the mattress. A newborn baby may sleep for up to 18 hours a day in the beginning. That’s why it is very important that you choose a good quality mattress. 

A good quality mattress that offers firms support and fits perfectly will promote excellent development of your child’s spine and also prevent any risk of entrapment or suffocation.
