Why is it important to choose a quality mattress?

A healthy baby is used to sleeping on average about 18 hours a day. This period is necessary to ensure a normal growth and development of the child. For this reason, it is important to give ourselves enough time when we want to buy a cot for the baby's room, but especially when it comes time to buy a mattress. Considering the fact that the baby will spend a long time in the crib in the first months of life, both to rest and to carry out different activities, it is particularly important to choose a quality product, to invest right now in resources able to ensure the harmonious development of the child and a restful sleep.

What are the criteria we have to take into account when choosing the right mattress size?

One of the most important criteria that we must take into account when purchasing the mattress for the baby's crib is the one related to the size. In order not to present a risk, the mattress must be chosen according to the size of the cot. It is usually recommended to purchase the cot together with the mattress as a package. If this is not possible, it is advisable to know the exact size of the mattress you will need. You can tell if a mattress is the right size, if there is no more than two fingers between the mattress and the walls of the crib.

What do we need to know about the materials from which the mattress is made?

Pay special attention to the materials from which the mattresses are made. Most of the time, mattresses are available in three basic versions - made of foam, with springs or with organic materials. In specialty stores, we can find mattresses that are made from a combination of these materials. If the baby is more sensitive or has certain medical conditions, it is advisable to consider the materials that were used to make these mattresses, in order to orient yourself towards the optimal option. Most of the time, the ideal option is represented by mattresses made of organic materials .

The foam used to make the mattresses must provide optimal orthopedic support, but at the same time an optimal degree of elasticity combined with the characteristic firmness of these products. The mattress for the cot 3D baby combines different materials, able to provide ideal support and protection to the extent of the little one. The core of this mattress is made of coconut fiber, surrounded by flexible foam with open cell. The coconut fiber used gives the advantage of optimal firmness for babies, but also the comfort of adequate ventilation. It is particularly important that the mattress is ventilated in order to last a long time but also to ensure increased comfort for the baby.

The mattress for the 3D coconut baby crib is made by a special technology, which allows the main core of coconut fiber to be encased in a layer of flexible foam, using natural latex as a binder. The quality of this product is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified.

In choosing the most suitable mattress, we must also take into account the textile material used to cover it. It must have anti-perspirant, anti-allergic, anti-suffocation and anti-mite properties. Some products, such as the coco 3D baby mattress, are made of 3D distance textile materials, able to ensure increased comfort for babies during sleep.

If the mattress is made of coconut and buckwheat , it is recommended in the first months of life that the baby sleeps on the face made of coconut. The coconut layer from which this mattress is made is particularly firm, thus ideal for the first 6 months of the little one's life. After the age of 6 months, the buckwheat side of the coconut and buckwheat mattress can be used. This material has the advantage of molding perfectly to the body of the little one, offering at the same time a special support. In addition, you must take into account the fact that buckwheat seeds have bacteriostatic properties, inhibiting the development of mites and at the same time guaranteeing excellent ventilation. After the age of 6 months, it is recommended that the mattress, regardless of its type, be turned from one side to the other at each change of linen.

What details should we look for on the product label?

The product label can provide you with extremely important information regarding the country of origin, product dimensions, but especially regarding the materials used. It is recommended to check whether these products are dermatologically tested, what are the manufacturer's indications regarding maintenance and hygiene, but also details regarding size and thickness. The mattress can be manufactured in Romania, as is the case with the mattress for the Cocos 3D baby crib made in Sibiu, the mattress that can be used for the age group 0 - 4 years. Mattresses manufactured in the EU in accordance with safety and quality requirements are also optimal choices in terms of value for money.
