Newborn babies spend most of their time sleeping. Until they reach one year old, babies sleep for 13-16 hours per day! Sleep is very essential for the development of a baby’s brain, immune system, and the function of the body in general. That’s why it is so important to choose the right mattress for babies.
Safest Crib Mattresses for Baby
It’s important to know that baby needs to sleep separately from parents – with no other things such as a blanket, pillow, dolls, etc on the crib. Crib mattresses are similar to adult mattress, but with some special considerations such as the right level of size and firmness, safe materials, and waterproof cover.
These traditional mattresses are designed with metal coils to be firm so they don’t conform to the baby’s body. They are usually resilient and sturdy. Above the coils, the mattresses have layers of different cushioning materials, such as polyester, cotton, or foam.
These mattresses are typically made from polyurethane, a foam resin. They are a popular option because of its affordable price and availability – you can easily find these mattresses in every store. However, a foam mattress should only be used for toddlers because they can increase the risk of suffocation if the mattress forms to a baby’s head and body.
Some cribs are dual-sided, meaning they are designed to be firm on one side for infant sleeping, and then can be turned over for a slightly softer surface once the baby is a toddler. This type of mattress is usually more expensive because of the double materials inside them.
None of the mattresses mentioned before are resistant to mold and dust mites. Yet the heat and humidity in most areas in Indonesia can easily encourage mold growth and dust mites. This problem can be solved by latex mattresses as they are naturally resistant to those allergens.
Natural latex is a wonderful, all-natural choice of mattress for your baby! There are no added chemicals, metal, or flame retardants. These mattresses are also naturally firm yet springy, comfortable yet resilient.
