    Default Is Mattress wrapping necessary??

    Hi I'm due to have my first child in 11 days and am still to buy a mattress for the cot, I was doing some research on the Internet and came across mattress wrapping, can anyone tell me is this necessary?

    No idea what it is so I'd say not neccessary? On our mattress we have a lambskin, protector and then fitted sheet.

    Bub just needs to be wrapped or swaddled, or in a sleeping bag when bigger.

    Did you do a google search and find a website which talks about mattress wrapping in New Zealand reducing the rates of SIDS? If so, I found that too, but when I looked at the official NZ SIDS site it does not mention it. None of the other official SIDS websites mention it either, so I didn't think it was necessary.

    Thanks for your replies, I found a SIDS website that stated there was no scientific evidence to support it, and they don't recommend it! So we won't be doing it!! Thanks again

    If you are concerned about the chemicals in mattresses causing SIDS, then maybe look into some organic alternatives
