Baby Cot Mattress Buying Guide
Our range of Spinal Support mattress are made locally here in Melbourne. All Spinal Support Innerspring mattresses comply with the Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 8811.1:2013 Sleep surfaces – test for firmness. This standard is a voluntary standard and not all mattresses sold in Australia claim compliance.
Here at Baby Mode we offer a variety of different mattresses and here is our guide to choosing the right one for you and your bub.
One of the most important things to be aware of when choosing a mattress for your baby is what size you will need. If you have already chosen, ordered or purchased your baby’s cot make sure you know the measurements so you know what sized mattress you will need. Generally, whatever size your cot is you’ll want your mattress to be slightly smaller so you’re able to tuck in sheets, quilts or blankets with ease. If you haven’t chosen a cot yet, it is probably best to do that first so you know what sized mattress you will need. All cots sold at Baby Mode have a recommended mattress size printed on the cot packaging by the manufacture that conform to Australian standards.
At Baby Mode we offer three types of Australian Made Hand Crafted Innerspring Mattresses. These come in a variety of sizes and styles, and will suit most budgets.
The first mattress we offer is a traditional Bonell Spring System innerspring mattress and this option is the most cost-effective of all our mattresses and can be purchased in a number of sizes. Innerspring mattresses are the most common found on the market and offer good support for the spine and joints.
An innerspring mattress like our first option however, in this mattress the upholstery is made up of completely organic, hypoallergenic materials. This is an ideal option for children with sensitive skin, allergies, or for parents who prefer a more environmentally friendly option.
This innerspring mattress also includes a layer of latex on both sides of the mattress, which will conform to your child's body. This is the most expensive of our mattresses, however many experts recommend latex for additional support. Other features of latex is that its naturally anti-fungal, anti-bacterial & dustmite resistant. Latex is also Hypo-allergenic & toxic free.
When visiting our store to choose a mattress, don't be afraid to gauge how firm or soft they are but remember each individual is different and just like how some people prefer a really soft mattress while some prefer a hard mattress, it is almost impossible to know what your baby will be more comfortable with. Our mattresses tend to be of a medium to hard firmness, so they're not too hard and not too soft, and this is a great place to start. Remember your baby will only be sleeping on this mattress for the first few years and when you move them to a bed you will be able to better understand what mattress is best for them.
