Everything you need to know when looking for that perfect night's sleep.
There are plenty of tough decisions to make when planning for your new arrival;
finding the right mattress shouldn’t be one of them. This handy guide cuts through the waffle to help you find the right mattress,
because a good night’s sleep has to start somewhere.
Did you know, that between birth and 2 years old, babies can spend as much as 50% of their life on their cot mattress. Yes, we're incredibly jealous too. But all that sleep needs a strong foundation. And that's the mattress. With lots of different options out there, it’s easy to lose sight of what you need. So let's figure this thing out together.
All our mattresses are designed so they’re just the right size and firmness for your baby. Cotbed mattresses all come with an adjustable built-in waterproof panel for those night-time accidents; and because we understand the importance of long-lasting value, our sprung, pocket sprung and natural mattresses can be flipped and rotated to prolong their life.
The first choice you need to make, though, is selecting the right supportive core for your mattress. Like with pilates a good core means a happier life (we think that's Pilates, we skipped the class after lesson one), and there are several different types of mattress core to choose from.
AirStream™ is a material made from 50% recycled foam-free fibres; scientifically proven to stay cool which is perfect for baby in those warmer months. The individual mini pocket springs contour to your child’s shape, providing the very best support as they grow.
Our anti-allergy covers are treated with Purotex™ - a probiotic that fights bad bacteria to keep baby safe from allergens and germs, great for asthma and eczema sufferers.
The state-of-the-art fabrics on our temperature regulating covers provide constant heat regulation for baby, all night.
All our mattress covers are machine washable; wash Purotex™ treated covers at 40OC and Essential Mattress Covers at 60OC.

Depending on where your little one is sleeping, you may choose a smaller cot or crib over a larger cot bed. You may even want to use a Moses basket. To make sure you find the right mattress for your needs, we've made it even easier to shop your mattress by size.
