Why choose hypoallergenic materials in babies' cot mattresses?

When it comes to providing a safe and healthy sleep environment for your little one, choosing the right cot mattress is crucial. Children spend a significant amount of time sleeping, and their growing bodies deserve the best support and comfort. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in what mattresses are made from. Here are some things to look for when considering a new mattress for your little one:

  1. Reduced ëxposure to chemicals: Some mattresses still contain synthetic materials and chemical additives, such as flame retardants and volatile organic compounds. These chemicals can off-gas and potentially impact your child's respiratory health. Growbright's airnest Cot Mattress is free from nasties; the airnest mattress core is made from food-grade polypropylene, with no chemical-based foams or adhesives meaning no allergens, off-gassing or other nasties. The cover is Oeko-Tex class one, classified safe for babies.

  2. Allergy Relief: Children are prone to allergies, and their mattresses can harbour dust mites, mold, and other allergens. Because Growbright's airnest Cot Mattress is 100% washable (both the cover and core), the mattress is easily rid of any build up of allergens - it also means that you can use for subsequent children, gift to a friend or family member or sell once you're ready to move your little one into a big kid bed.

  3. Breathability and Temperature Regulation: Proper airflow and temperature regulation are essential for a comfortable sleep experience. Opt for natural materials, such as organic cotton, merino or tencel, these are known for their breathability. They allow air to circulate through the mattress, preventing heat buildup and excessive sweating. Growbright's breathable airnest technology reduces the risk of airway obstruction if your baby rolls over during sleep. airnest’s market-leading breathability reduces the risk of overheating by assisting baby’s temperature regulation.

  4. Support and Comfort: Growing bodies need proper support to maintain healthy spine alignment during sleep, plus a mattress that is on the firmer side helps to reduce the risk of SIDs. airnest’s layers have been designed to strike the perfect balance of firmness and softness to create the optimal sleep surface for baby.

  5. Environmentally Friendly Choice: Choosing organic and hypoallergenic mattresses is not only beneficial for your child but also for the environment. Many foam or inner-sprung mattresses cannot be recycled or reused at the end of their life, so unfortunately end up in landfill. Growbright airnest’s core is 100% recyclable meaning no foam or springs go into landfill at the end of its life.
