A Good Night's Sleep: Mattress Shopping for Baby

For the first two years of their life, your baby will sleep for around 13 months - that's a whole lot of sleep! But whilst it looks like your little one is snoozing soundly away, their cognitive skills and nervous system are actually working extra hard to grow and develop. So, it goes without saying that getting a good night’s sleep is essential – especially as it gives you a chance to catch up on some much-needed rest, too.

A good night's sleep starts with a good quality cot mattress. So, once your nursery furniture is in place, we’re here to help you find the right one for baby and make mattress shopping a little easier.

We’ve got a range of supportive baby mattresses, all tested to the highest U.K. standards. From our luxury organic mattress that’s chemical and allergen-free, to our comfy premium spring, our cot and cot bed mattresses are packed with features that’ll have your baby sleeping well from day one – so you can grab those forty winks, too.
