What to Look for in a Cot Mattress
Choosing a cot mattress is one of your most important decisions when setting up your baby’s nursery. To help you make the right decision, we’ve created a list of what to look for in a cot mattress to ensure your little one sleeps soundly.
Finding the Right Firmness
Cot mattresses should always fall on the firmer side because an overly soft bed poses a risk of suffocation. To test the firmness, throw a few heavier objects on it and time how long it takes the bed to spring back into shape. It is perfectly safe if it bounces back quickly and doesn’t remain sunken. All the mattresses we stock at Dimples blend firmness and comfort for a secure yet cosy sleep.
Choosing the Right Size Cot Mattress
If you are purchasing your cot and mattress separately, finding a size that will fit tightly into the cot is essential. You don’t want any gaps bigger than 2cm. Gaps can cause your baby to get caught between the mattress and the cot.
Look for Hypoallergenic Materials
Baby’s skin is extremely sensitive when they’re young, so finding a hypoallergenic mattress is a great way to avoid skin irritation while in bed. Hypoallergenic cot mattresses will inhibit mites and bacteria growth while also helping control sweating at night. Give your little one the best sleep possible by getting a hypoallergenic mattress.
