When it comes to where your baby sleeps, The Lullaby Trust recommends that you use a firm, flat and waterproof mattress which is in good condition.
The Coco Mat is our firmest and most breathable 100% natural nursery mattress, which we strongly recommend for little ones up to the age of one year. The combination of coir fibres and organic, locally-sourced wool in the Coco Mat make for brilliant temperature control, too - which will help them get a long, deep sleep.
When paired with our Organic Cotton Waterproof Mattress Protector, the Coco Mat makes for a perfectly firm, flat and waterproof sleep space.
More Advice from the Lullaby Trust
The safest place for your baby to sleep is on their own sleep surface, in the same room as you, for at least the first six months. A Moses basket or cot is a safe place for a baby to sleep.
You should use a firm and flat cot mattress that is protected by a waterproof cover. This will help keep the mattress clean and dry, as the cover can be wiped down.
Make sure that your baby’s mattress is in good condition, and that it fits their sleep space properly.
Do not use a sheepskin in a Cot or Moses basket or other sleep space. It is important that baby’s sleep space is firm, flat and has a waterproof cover. Adding a sheepskin can reduce firmness and risk overheating.
