New babies sleep a lot and once you have your child in a routine, it becomes important to take care of their bedding and mattresses. At Baby Bunting we have a range of mattress protectors and underlays that will keep baby’s cot cleaner for longer.
When choosing an underlay or mattress protector, you should not only look at size but also the materials the product is made with. With the choice of natural bamboo and quilt you are sure to find the perfect mattress protector for you.
Let’s be honest, your baby mattress is going to be put through its paces as your baby grows and changes. Because babies need so much sleep, it is understandable that babies will have toileting accidents in their cots along the way. The best ways to ensure that your baby’s mattress continues to maintain a good condition is to reduce the wear and tear these accidents will cause by using an effective mattress protector.
What can a mattress protector actually do for you? A good mattress underlay will help your baby to regulate body heat more effectively, while also protecting the mattress from:
As an effective first line of defence, the right mattress protector can therefore extend the length and quality of your mattress’s lifespan.
As always, natural fibres are the best, but innovative synthetic fibres can also offer similar results.
Babies don’t regulate heat as effectively as an adult or older child. For this reason, a good mattress underlay which adjusts with the seasons can assist them in keeping warm or staying cool while they sleep. A quality mattress underlay should not just provide extra comfort for your baby but should also increase the breathability of the mattress and provide ventilation. Mattress underlays made from lambswool are ideal as they are highly breathable and will help to keep your baby warmer in cool weather or cooler in hot weather.
A good quality mattress underlay will also add extra softness to your baby’s bed, increasing their comfort. As a bonus, underlays also add an extra protective layer to your baby’s mattress.
Please note mattress underlays are not recommended for babies under 8 months old, as they may increase the risk of asphyxiation and Sudden Infant Death syndrome if the baby rolls onto their tummy during sleep. If you are using a mattress protector or underlay, they need to be perfectly matched and fitted to the mattress.
