Designed in the simple Scandi look, Mokee’s nursery furniture and accessories offer you stylish solutions for your babies’ nurseries at competitive prices without having to compromise on quality.
When preparing for your newborn’s arrival you can get caught up in the décor of the nursery. But what is probably the most important thing to think about is the safety and comfort of your newborn and this is where some investigations into mattresses is important.
Government guidelines tell parents to use a firm, flat and waterproof mattress in good condition. They also say that you should avoid using soft or bulky bedding, avoid pillows which can increase the risk of sudden infant death syndrome. (SIDS)
For second-hand mattresses, guidelines advise that there is some research that found an increased chance of SIDS when using a second-hand mattress brought in from outside of the family home, although the link is not yet proven.
To help reduce this risk, if you are using a second-hand mattress you should make sure the mattress chosen was previously completely protected by a waterproof cover, with no rips or tears and is in good condition. The mattress should also still be firm and flat to keep your baby sleeping safely.
Mokee provides two types of mattresses to go with the cots of sizes 120x60 or 140x70.
The Natural Mattress guarantees not only comfort but also safety. It is made from 100% chemical-free materials and has a double-sided wool layer to ensure a good night's sleep.
With a coco-latex core made from organically-sourced coconut husk fibres, this resilient mattress is designed to support a baby through the whole night because of a structure that adapts to the baby’s body. A cooling cotton layer helps to regulate body temperature, while hypoallergenic wool padding makes this mattress ideal for babies who suffer from allergies.
Alternatively, you can choose the Aloe vera Mattress. With an aloe vera infused quilted cover and reflex foam filling, this cooling and comfortable mattress soothes babies into a relaxing deep sleep.
Tried and tested by the MoKee team, the breathable foam mattress complies to all standard safety regulations and is ideal for newborns. Machine washable for convenience, the quilted cover has a zip fastening so that it can be removed with ease for cleaning purposes.
Practical, comfort and above all safety are key to mattresses for newborns so you should choose wisely and do your research.
