How to choose a suitable mattress in the stroller
In order for your baby to feel comfortable during a walk, you will need to purchase a mattress in the stroller. The fact is that the child often sleeps in it, so it should be comfortable for him. In addition, the correct product will contribute to the proper development of the skeleton of your baby.
It should be noted that the mattress in the stroller is not so easy to choose. First of all, remember that you should not choose it in advance. There are such models of wheelchairs with which the mattress is also sold. However, if you are unlucky, you will have to buy the product separately. At the same time consider the size of your "vehicle".
During the selection of the presented product it is necessary to be guided by certain criteria. As already mentioned, the first factor is the size of the mattress. It should not be greater than the bottom of the cradle. Otherwise, it will simply start to curl, and the baby will be uncomfortable lying on an uneven surface. The mattress in the stroller must be hard enough so that the spine of the child is properly formed. Naturally, later it will need to be replaced with a softer product, but this can be done after the baby is one year old.
Now pay attention to which filler is used in this product. The most useless is foam rubber, which is considered the most gentle and short-lived, as it is quickly deformed. The mattress in the stroller for the baby should be of high quality and durable, so you should give preference to coconut or buckwheat fiber. Such products are very durable, hypoallergenic, resistant to wear, safe for the child. The main advantage of such a filler is that it has the necessary rigidity for the correct development of the support system of the baby, and can also retain the original shape for a long time.
You can also use products with a filler of latex, wool and flax. Especially since these materials can be combined. Children's mattresses in the stroller may have a different color and pattern. However, all of them should be equipped with covers that can be easily removed and washed. Also try not to neglect your right to view quality certificates. You should know that the product is factory-made and does not contain materials harmful to the health of the child. Do not buy such an accessory on the market, it is better to choose a specialized store.
During the selection also carefully inspect the mattress. If it has visible defects, ask to replace it with another. Recently, mattress liner in the stroller is considered popular. Its advantage is that it is ergonomic, has a small thickness. Thanks to these parameters, it can be easily used in strollers, cradles, carrying. Another advantage of this product are the slots for seat belts. Thanks to this you will be sure that your baby is securely fixed in the stroller and will not fall out of it. It can also be easily washed in an automatic machine.
