What kind of mattress is best for a newborn?
A firm, flat and supportive mattress is ideal for newborns as it helps with their backbone and motor development. Safety and comfort is important when choosing the best crib mattress, so ensure that the mattress meets the official safety standards and certifications.
What are some factors in choosing your baby's mattress?
Size: Common mattress sizes for baby cribs include 130 x 70cm (Standard US size), 140 x 70cm and 120 x 60cm. Getting your mattress size right is dependent on your baby crib size. We recommend getting both your crib and mattress at the same baby store to make sure it’s the right fit. Hatchery Cribs carries the 130 x 70cm (Standard US size) mattress.
Firmness: Having a firm, flat and supportive mattress is crucial to developing your newborn’s delicate backbone and motor skills. Getting a firm mattress is the bare minimum, but an extra-firm one would be ideal for babies, especially for newborns. Avoid soft and memory foam mattresses as they do not provide ample support and may even result in suffocation.
