Hey, I am still trying to work out what mattress to get for bubba due in November.
It is really doing my head and I just can't seem to make a decision I am comfortable with so I thought I would ask for some opinions - each option has pros and cons but I am wondering what none seem to outwiegh the other by any great measure?
So - I have been taking ALL the advice on board and still stumped
- New firm cot (recommended by SIDS, but I am not comfortable with the levels of toxins/gases in a new mattress. SIDS offical response is that there is no prooven link bw gases and SIDS 'at this time')
- Older firm cot (SIDS is kinda nuetral on this but you hear alot about a new mattress fro each bub. I read that it is the mould that coudl be a problem - so they recommend a mattress that is mould free. Plus side of an older cot is that all gases would have leached over 2yrs or so)
- New 100% organic cot (no risk of mould or toxic gasses which I like, however, it is softer then a normal cot and im concerned of the suffication risk? I was told the mattress shoudl not leave an imprint of your hand once you push on it and remove your hand - it should spring right back)
- New firm cot with on the special plastic covers that 'apparently' trap the toxic gasses? (SIDS don't comment on this much)
