    Default Cot mattress

    First time mum wanting to know the difference between inner spring and foam mattresses. Which is better? Any opinions? We've looked at a few and I found one but there is about 80 mm difference from the one we found and the mattress that is recommend for our cot. Is that too much for small fingers? Any suggestions greatly appreciated

    I had a breath easy mattress it wasn't inner sprung and within 6 months it was sagging. I now have an inner sprung and it's been great no problems

    Correct me if im wrong but I was told that it isn't really necessary to have a inner spring mattress as babies are so light.

    I have a lovely (expensive) innerspring very firm mattress that has a removable cover that can be machine washed, so have used it for both my kids, BUT it is so firm that I have had problems with both kids developing flat spots on the back of their heads! So if I had my time again, I would probably buy a cheaper foam mattress and replace more frequently if it got worn out. It is really important that the mattress fits the cot properly, I think 80mm sounds like too much gap.
