The mattress is an essential part of a baby's bedding. Your baby spends nearly 18 hours a day on his mattress during his first months. We consider that a baby spends as many hours on his mattress in 2 years as an adult spends in 5 to 6 years.
To choose the right mattress for your baby, you must focus on safety, comfort and the quality of the air he breathes. This way your child will be comfortably seated in bed and will be able to enjoy calm nights with fewer night awakenings. He will thus be able to benefit from a quality sleep that helps his physical and psychological development.
Choose a safe mattress for your baby:
Choose a new mattress for each baby.
First of all, it is important to check that your baby's future mattress complies with decree 2000-164 of 23 February 2000, relating to the safety of certain bedding items. Decree guaranteeing the hygiene of the mattress and aimed at protecting people against certain fire risks. All Kadolis baby mattresses comply with this decree.
It is important to choose a baby mattress that perfectly matches the size of the bed. There should be no gap between the mattress and the bars of the bed. It would be dangerous to fill a space with a rolled towel or duvet. Choose a mattress with a thickness suitable for toddlers: a baby mattress should be between 10 and 13 cm thick. A thicker mattress would not provide any additional comfort.
Choose a healthy mattress for your baby:
To offer a quality sleep to your child while taking care of his health, well-being and environment, prefer a mattress made of natural material. Unlike synthetic materials, they do not contain any petroleum derivatives and are softer for the skin. Our mattresses made of natural materials are guaranteed without any chemical treatment or toxic solvents, so there is much less risk of allergic reaction when baby is in contact with the mattress. Some mattresses are coated with aloe vera, a natural material with many regenerative, healing and soothing properties. Mattresses with aloe vera coated covers are particularly suitable for babies with reactive skin or those prone to contact allergies.
Natural materials are more breathable, they ensure good air circulation between the fibres, so moisture is better evacuated and baby perspires much less, which limits the risk of night awakenings.
Our mattresses are made of natural materials such as Tencel®, which is used in the composition of mattress covers, latex and coconut fibre. Natural materials allow excellent moisture wicking, which limits the proliferation of bacteria and mites. A mattress made of natural materials is therefore antibacterial and anti-mite without any chemical treatment.
The most famous of our mattresses is undoubtedly the coco latex mattress, a 100% natural mattress made of coco fibre and natural latex. The combination of these two materials makes the mattress ultra breathable and naturally antibacterial and anti-mite. All Kadolis mattresses are Oekotex Standard 100 certified, so they are guaranteed to be safe for health and the environment.
All Kadolis mattresses are removable very easily thanks to a zip that goes all around the mattress. The cover is machine washable to ensure impeccable hygiene. Regular washing of the mattress cover in the machine is much more effective than chemical anti-mite treatment and much healthier for baby's health.
To protect your baby's mattress, don't forget to protect it with a sheet, so choose a breathable sheet (also called a micro-aerated sheet). Avoid PVC sheets that block air circulation and cause sweating and discomfort for your child. Breathable sheets are a good complement to the natural mattress, the combination of the two allows a good temperature regulation and a good moisture evacuation, so baby perspires less, he sleeps better.
Select a mattress with a density suitable for babies:
Paediatricians recommend that babies sleep on a semi-firm density mattress, i.e. a density of between 20 and 22 kg/m3 for foam mattresses. A mattress with a density below 20 kg/m3 would be too soft and could be dangerous for baby. Mattresses with a density greater than 22 kg/m3 are too firm and uncomfortable for toddlers. Here is a summary of the thicknesses and densities of our baby mattresses:
The different advantages of our mattresses:
The Aloe Vera mattress
It is a baby mattress that offers an excellent quality/price ratio. Its core is made of polyurethane foam of semi-firm density, ideal for babies, and its ticking is made of polyester (which allows to pass the fire protection standard without any chemical treatment). The ticking of this mattress is coated with Aloe Vera, which makes it particularly interesting for babies with fragile and reactive skin. Aloe Vera is a plant with soothing and healing properties that are completely natural.
The Active Clim mattress
It is a mattress that regulates the temperature thanks to its Tencel® cover. Its polyurethane foam core is semi-firm for an ideal bedding and its cover is made of 60% Tencel®, a material made from eucalyptus pulp with natural air conditioning properties. Tencel® offers a feeling of freshness in summer and warmth in winter. In addition, this fibre perfectly wicks away moisture, which naturally limits the proliferation of bacteria and mites, without any chemical treatment.
The Coco Latex mattress
It is a 100% natural mattress and THE breathable mattress par excellence! Its core is made of coconut fibre which ensures perfect air circulation and therefore a totally natural antiallergic and antibacterial effect. A layer of natural latex (86% purity level) provides the flex and rebound that would be missing from a 100% coconut mattress. The mattress cover is made of Tencel® to improve temperature regulation. On this mattress baby hardly sweats, he sleeps better. A baby mattress guaranteed without any chemical treatment.
The Latex mattress
A mattress that will suit 100% latex lovers. It offers unique comfort and support with its perforated natural latex heart. The combination of a soft welcome and firm support for a better sleep. The very structure of the latex makes this mattress antibacterial and anti-mite, without any chemical treatment. The mattress cover is made of Tencel® which provides the air conditioning to limit the sweating so common in babies and reduce the number of night awakenings.
