Washing instructions & mattress care

Washing instructions:

For pvc coverings we recommend that the mattress be regularly wiped down with a mild solution of warm water & disinfectant or sterilising solution. Antibacterial sprays are also recommended. Always ensure the mattress is completely dry before putting baby back on it.

For fabric coverings we recommend hand wash with a mild non-biological detergent (60 degrees) Rinse thoroughly, pull to shape while damp and leave to dry naturally.

Fabric covers can also be machine washed (maximum 60 degrees) using a non-biological detergent. Slow spin. We recommend that the cover be left to dry naturally but if using a tumble dryer is necessary please only COOL TUMBLE DRY as the zips are plastic and could mishape.

For minor soils, spot clean with a mild solution of warm water & non-biological detergent.

We do not recommend that mattress covers be ironed.

Do not dry clean due to chemical content of dry cleaning solution on a baby's sleeping surface.

Always ensure that mattresses are completely dry before using.

Spare covers are available for sale in store.

Safety first:

Turn the mattress regularly to help maintain its shape & keep it aired.

Buy a new mattress for every new baby. That way, you can be sure your baby is sleeping in the cleanest, most comfortable environment possible.

A safe cot mattress is one that is the right size for the cot, is firm and clean. A soft mattress can increase the risk of SIDS if baby rolls over onto the tummy.

A baby or toddler can get stuck in gaps between a poor fitting mattress and the cot sides. This is especially dangerous if their face is trapped and covered, or their neck is restricted in any way.

Always remove the polythene wrapping from the mattress.

Never put soft bedding under the bottom sheet as this makes the sleeping surface too soft. 

Never place your baby in a cot which is near to  curtains or curtain cords as a baby could become entangled.
