Mattress in a cot: an important element of the arrangement of a children's room
Any mother always takes care of her child growing up in love and coziness, getting all the best and not feeling lack of affection. That is why today in the stores you can find a lot of children's products that help make the child's life colorful, bright and very comfortable. Nevertheless, there are basic necessities in caring for the baby, about which parents often forget. For example, a mattress in a baby cot. This thing is extremely important for the healthy physical development of crumbs from the first days of his life.
Choosing a quality baby mattress
So, modern manufacturers offer a wide range of mattresses, but not all of them are suitable for toddlers. A mattress in a baby cot needs to be selected according to the basic parameters:
- Rigidity. Babies of the first year of life should sleep on a flat surface. Therefore, all soft mattress covers and featherbeds need not be purchased. The fact is that up to a year the basic skeleton formation takes place, and too lush and soft surfaces will not do him any good. Of course, it's much more comfortable to sleep on the feather bed, but for the child's health it is necessary to give up at least 5-6 years.
- Fillers. Unfortunately, at the present time many children tend to develop allergic reactions not only to food products, but also to surrounding objects. Therefore, when choosing a mattress in a baby cot, you need to pay attention to the material from which it is made. For children with allergies, the mattress of children's coconut is ideal - coconut fiber does not cause allergic reactions. Combined models are very popular - on the one hand coconut, on the other - a softer and more elastic latex layer. But from mattresses with spring blocks and foam rubber it is worth noting - they are too soft and can adversely affect the formation of the spine.
Parents should remember that the mattress in the baby cot should be selected especially carefully, because on it your child will sleep for more than one year. Therefore, the quality of these products should be paid special attention. For example, mattresses with coconut or latex interlayer can last very long - these materials are quite difficult to deform, so they are suitable even for children who are in the habit of jumping in a crib. The base of the blocks of independent springs is also distinguished by quality and reliability. As for foam rubber, it quickly sags, forming on the surface irregularities, which bring a lot of inconvenience to the crumb.
In order to protect the mattress from the products of children's life, you can buy a special waterproof mattress cover made of latex.
Another important point - if your child does not have health problems, then the seller in the store will tell you how to choose the right mattress. But if, for health reasons, the doctor recommended the baby a special orthopedic mattress, then rely on the advice of sellers and advice of girlfriends is not necessary - it is better to ask the doctor to specify the model and brand of the right product.
