If you are looking for the perfect mattress for your baby's crib, you have come to the right place. In this blog, we will provide you with complete and updated information on what pediatricians recommend when purchasing a crib mattress , and its specifications.

Features of pediatrician-recommended crib mattress:

1. Firmness:

The mattress should be firm enough to provide adequate support for the baby. This is important to avoid the risk of suffocation or the baby sinking into the mattress. Take a look at the anti-suffocation mattress in our store.

2. Suitable size:

The mattress should fit perfectly to the size of the crib, without leaving spaces between the edges. This prevents the baby from getting trapped between the mattress and the sides of the crib, or from hitting their head on the walls of the crib, thus avoiding injuries or deformities. For this, we offer different specialties and sizes in our mattresses, to be able to have a size according to your needs.

According to the AEP (Spanish Association of Pediatrics) , the mattress must be hard, thus preventing the baby from sinking into it, resistant and breathable. Its measurements must be appropriate for the crib, since a small mattress can leave gaps, trapping a baby's leg or arm. It can be made of springs, latex or memory foam. It would be advisable to put the mattress in a zippered cover and a mattress protector.

Remember that each baby is a different world, so it is important to consult with your pediatrician before making a decision about the crib mattress and make sure you choose the one that best suits your baby.
