With a background such as mine, having worked at a Children's Hospital in the SIDS division, I have spoken with many grieving parents who have lost their infant to an unknown cause and I have seen the pain in their eyes. This have given me an ongoing desire to seek out information that may be of help to another, and seek out products that can lend itself to the cause of aiding in trying to keep this awful tragedy at bay. While no one knows the many reasons or causes of this tragedy, statistics have clearly shown that since they introduced the "Back to Sleep" campaign, years ago, that the SIDS rate lowered at a noticeable rate. This lends itself to the belief that perhaps rebreathing the same air or not having good circulation for breathing, may be one of the reasons for it. While no product can eliminate SIDS, a product such as this helps in the ability to breathe clean air and greatly reduce the risk of suffocation.
That is why this amazing mattress caught my eye and my interest. This mattress is not made like a standard crib mattress. This mattress is made in two parts. It has the frame and then the sleep surface. There is a layer of air between the two parts, which allows for better circulation and allows for baby to breathe cleaner air should they roll over and find themselves in a face down position.
The sleep surface is very comfortable and gives baby a solid base for sleeping soundly. It also helps in another manner that baby does not care about, but yet it is by far an important aspect, and that is they sleep not only soundly, but safely. When baby sleeps safely, mom will sleep soundly too.
Because this is like a mesh base it aids in adding a little bit of protection for baby against flat head syndrome which is so common. While it will not full remove the possibility of it occurring, it will help it not be as bad.
One thing mothers love about the mattress is that the mesh top is easy to remove when it needs laundered and there is no need for a mattress pad or sheet to be used. Baby sleeps right on the surface of the mattress, and this is what allows it to be effective in offering excellent air flow. When it becomes soiled, you simply lift the bars it is connected to, remove the cover, wash off the recycled plastic underpiece and launder the sleep surface. Please dry on gentle cycle to keep it from shrinking. Then just return it to the frame and it is ready for baby once again.
I suggest having two of the mesh covers, so you can have one to put on while the other is being laundered. We all know that babies make their own schedule, so it is nice to know you have a backup, because without it, you have no mattress to lie them down on. They offer the mesh covers in multiple colors, so you can play with this and add other colors to your baby's decor. Then, when they move to a toddler bed, you can always change to another color, if their room decor changes.
This mattress is proudly made within the USA, which makes it a product you can trust, as you know where it originated.
While we can never choose our fate and we cannot plan for a future we do not know yet, we can do all in our power to ensure we have done our very best to assure a happy future, by making wise choices. Because facts show that 1 in 4 babies who die of SIDS most likely died of some type of suffocation, this mattress can lend to our comfort in knowing that we have eliminated a significant risk factor by this one simple choice. If it can give us better sleep, knowing baby is sleeping soundly and safely, our days will be better because we will be more rested and at peace.
