Why You Should Buy a New Mattress for Each Baby

There are many reasons why it's best to buy a new mattress for every new baby - these include:

  • comfort
  • spinal support
  • safety standards for baby mattresses
  • hygiene
  • baby's general health

Recent medical research suggests there may also be an increase risk of cot death if a baby is sleeping on a mattress previously used by a baby from another home.

This seems to be largely down to the bacteria that can be found in used cot mattresses. The research is not saying there is a definite risk from used mattresses but the way of avoiding a potential risk is to use a new mattress for every new baby.

Remember to always follow normal sleep safety advice:

  • sleep your baby on his or her back
  • make sure your baby does not get too warm
