I remember being a first-time Mom. There’s one thing that I thought about then that I found myself thinking about with baby #3 12 years later. SIDS and my baby sleeping away from me in her own bed.
With my oldest I found myself checking on him multiple times during the night. I wanted to make sure he stayed on his back and swaddled. Now I am a “seasoned” Mom with three kids and baby #3 still gets the Mom check-ins.
I worry a little bit less about my baby girl sleeping on her tummy because we have the Secure Beginnings SafeSleep breathable crib mattress for her.
Secure Beginnings SafeSleep
Kaylee is a stomach sleeper. She has been since she was an infant. We would lay her down on her back and she would flip herself over and tuck her arms underneath her. I was afraid she would not realize she couldn’t breathe well if she laid face down too long so we were intrigued to give the SafeSleep from Secure Beginnings a try for her.
My husband assembled the crib mattress for me as I watched so that when the mattress top needed to be cleaned I would know how to take it apart to wash it.
Is a breathable crib mattress important?
The SafeSleep crib mattress is not only an eco-friendly mattress but it is made with a passive airflow system that allows for baby to breathe more freely even when on their tummies. If you are thinking about inclining a baby mattress, check if is it safe to incline baby mattress.
The “boxspring” base of the SafeSleep mattress is a hardwood open box frame. Not only does the patented airflow design of the Secure Beginnings SafeSleep breathe-through crib mattress lessens the risk of breathing troubles if face down but it also helps lessen overheating. Kaylee has a body temperature like her Dad. She stays super warm all the time. Since switching to our SafeSleep mattress she doesn’t wake up soaked of sweat anymore.
There are no sheets needed for this mattress, with the breathable top you just lay the baby right on it. It zips up around the metal bars and is pushed down into place.
The SafeSleep breathe-through crib mattress is USA-made and can be purchased from Secure Beginnings for $269. The mattresses come with a 60-day money-back guarantee. It is available in different sleep surface colors and wood base colors.
