When you're on holiday and away from home, it's important to ensure that your baby's sleeping routine is kept as normal as possible to be sure that everyone gets a good night's sleep. Therefore, Babies Firsts have carefully developed their Deluxe Foam Travel Cot Mattress (size 119 x 59 x 5 cm) to ensure that your baby is as comfortable away from home as when sleeping in a normal cot.
The Lullaby Trust (formally FSID) recommend that you should buy a new mattress for every new baby. Evidence shows that there may be an increased risk of cot death if a baby sleeps on a mattress that has been previously used. Other evidence shows that used mattresses could become compressed and also lose firmness, both of which are important for the development of the baby's spine. Therefore, choosing the right mattress is an important part of ensuring that your baby's health isn't compromised and that you both get a good night's sleep.
The mattress features a quilted, water-resistant cover that is removable for washing at 60°C. At the core of the mattress, a 5 cm dent-resistant nursery foam is firm for a new baby yet comfortable for the older infant. The mattress offers protection against allergies such as asthma and eczema, and is perfectly suitable for placing your baby in the feet to foot position as recommended by the Lullaby Trust. The mattress is fully breathable, reversible, lightweight, and ideal for taking on holiday or for using at home.
Measure the inside of your baby's travel cot. The mattress should fit snugly inside with no more than a 3 cm gap around it. Babies Firsts manufacture two different sizes of travel cot mattress: 95 x 65 x 5 cm and 119 x 59 x 5 cm.
Babies Firsts mattresses have been manufactured in the UK with your baby's safety and comfort in mind, they contain no nasty chemicals (antimony, phosphorus, or arsenic), and they meet all relevant British Standards: BS1877-10:2011+A1:2012 and BS7177:2008+A1:2011.
Babies Firsts supply a full range of mattresses. From a Moses basket, pram, crib, or travel cot mattress to a foam, fibre, spring interior, or pocket spring mattress for cots and cot beds, you should be able to find exactly what you are looking for in the range. All mattresses are professionally manufactured so that you can be confident in the knowledge that you have provided a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for your baby.
