To ensure that your child sleeps well at night, a cot mattress is a must-have product for you. In general, a newborn baby would sleep about 16 to 18 hours a day and therefore it is important to ensure that he gets a comfortable sleep and that the crib mattress is a safe and cozy solution.
Finding the best type of bed mattress for a good night’s sleep for you and your children can be a daunting task. There are different types of crib mattress to choose from as there are many such types available in the market. The available mattress pads for cribs are:
This type of crib mattress includes PVC coating on top of the foam interior. They are expensive but still at a good price. These are easy to clean and maintain and are also light in weight. However, they can be uncomfortable for infants during the hot seasons due to the PVC coating.
This type of crib mattress is made of a coil spring under the mattress’ non-PVC surface. This type of mattress offers excellent support and is also durable and lasts a long time. This is perfect for accommodating more than one child. Their disadvantage is that they weigh more compared to the foam mattresses which makes it difficult to change them from one place to another. These types are also more expensive than foam mattresses.
Other types of cot mattresses that are available are fiber bed mattresses which are the most expensive types while being the most durable at the same time and the allergy-friendly cot mattress which contains a non-allergenic inner foam which is combined with a surface that is water resistant and also allergy friendly.
Before buying the bed mattress, it is important to mount the bed properly first and then measure the length and width of the bed base on its interior.
There are two basic sizes of bed mattresses, such as the continental size which measures 60x120cm and the regular bed mattress which measures 56x118cm.
The mattress must be firm without it hanging down and must fit in the cot without any doors.
Be sure to buy a mattress that meets all safety regulations and you only need to buy a used mattress if you know its history. Otherwise, it is best to buy a new one.
