As a weary-eyed new parent, it might not feel like it, but your new baby actually spends most of her time sleeping – up to 18 hours a day in fact! So making sure your baby is safe and comfortable is of utmost importance, not just for her safety, but for your own peace of mind. And a big part of making sure your baby sleeps safely and soundly comes down to choosing the correct mattress.
What to look for in a good baby mattress
When looking for the ideal mattress for your baby, you want to make sure the mattress fits the cot or bassinet correctly, is firm, and complies with the Australian Voluntary Standard (AS/NZS 8811.1:2013) that guarantees it’s been tested. The Numu-roo mattress, as well as meeting the safety standard, is made of a single mesh layer. Yes! Just one single layer of mesh, so the mattress is fully breathable.
Safe and sound: a breathable baby mattress regulates temperature
An important consideration in choosing your baby’s mattress is both baby’s comfort and her health: namely reducing the risk of SIDS. Just as we know to put babies down on their backs to sleep, we know that because babies can’t regulate their own body temperature, preventing overheating is also important. With its single mesh layer, the Numu-roo provides your baby with 100 percent air circulation, providing her with good airflow, no matter which way she turns in her sleep.
Night washing dramas? Not a thing. This mattress is easy to clean and dry
No matter how many times you change your baby’s nappy, there are inevitable leakages, and spending time washing and drying mattresses in the middle of the night can be laborious and time-consuming. But Numu-roo mattresses are super easy to clean and fast to dry. It takes less than minute to clean a Numu-roo! Bonus.
Sensitive to asthma or allergies? Tick!
Because of its single mesh layer, Numu-roo are a Sensitive Choice partner product, selected by the National Asthma Council Australia, so you can be sure there will be no dust mite build-up in baby’s mattress, making Numu-roo a friendly choice for babies prone to allergies and asthma.
