The mattress is an essential part of a baby's bedding. Your baby spends almost 18 hours a day on his mattress during his first months. It is considered 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, it is important to focus on safety, comfort and the quality of the air he or she breathes. This way your child will be comfortably installed in his bed and will be able to enjoy calm nights with fewer night-time awakenings. He will thus be able to benefit from a quality sleep that helps his physical and psychological development.
Choosing 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 aiming to protect people against certain fire risks. AllKadolis baby mattresses comply with this decree.
It is important to choose a baby mattress that perfectly matches the dimensions of the bed. There must be no space between the mattress and the bars of the cot. It would be dangerous to fill a gap with a towel or rolled duvet. Choose a mattress with a thickness suitable for toddlers: a baby mattress should be between 10 and 13 cm thick. A thicker mattress will not provide any extra comfort.
Choose a healthy mattress for your baby :
To provide quality sleep for your child while taking care of his health, well-being and environment, prefer a mattress made of natural materials. Unlike synthetic materials, they do not contain 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 an 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 who are prone to contact allergies.
The natural materials are more breathable, they ensure good air circulation between the fibres, so moisture is better evacuated and baby sweats much less, limiting the risk of night-time awakenings.
Our mattresses are made of natural materials such as TENCEL™, which is used in the composition of mattress covers, latex and coconut fibre. The natural materials provide excellent moisture wicking, which limits the proliferation of bacteria and dust mites. A mattress made of natural materials is therefore antibacterial and anti-dust mite without any chemical treatment.
The most famous of our mattresses is undoubtedly the cocolatex mattress, a 100% natural mattress made of coconut fibre and natural latex. The combination of these two materials makes the mattress ultra breathable and naturally antibacterial and anti-dust mite. All Kadolis mattresses are certified Oekotex Standard 100, so they are guaranteed to be safe for health and the environment.
All Kadolis mattresses are easy to remove thanks to a zip that goes all around the mattress. The cover is machine washable to guarantee impeccable hygiene. Regular washing of the mattress ticking in the machine is much more effective than a chemical anti-dust mite treatment and much healthier for baby's health.
To protect your baby's mattress, don't forget to protect it with a mattress protector. To do so, choose a breathable mattress protector(also known as a micro-ventilated mattress protector). Avoid PVC pads that block air circulation and cause perspiration and discomfort for your child. Breathable pads are a good complement to the natural mattress, the combination of the two allows a good temperature regulation and a good evacuation of moisture, so baby perspires less, he sleeps better.
Select a mattress of density adapted to the babies:
Paediatricians recommend that babies sleep on a mattress with a semi-firm density, i.e. a density of between 20 and 22 kg/m3 for foam mattresses. A mattress with a density below 20kg/m3 would be too soft and could be dangerous for baby. Mattresses with a density above 22kg/m3 are too firm and uncomfortable for toddlers. All Kadolis baby mattresses have the density that meets the needs and safety of babies.
|Type of baby mattress||Thickness||Density|
|Aloe Vera||11 cm||21 kg/m³|
|Evolution Air||12 cm||21kg/m3 + Latex: 90kg/m3(*)|
|Coco Latex||12 cm||Latex: 65 kg/m³ - Coconut: 48kg/m³ which |
equals a density of 23 kg/m³ (*)
(*) The density of latex is calculated differently from the density of polyurethane foam.
The different advantages of our mattresses:
It is a baby mattress that offers an excellent quality/price ratio. Its core is composed of semi-firm density polyurethane foam, ideal for babies, and its ticking is composed of polyester (which allows it to pass the fire-retardant 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 totally natural soothing and healing properties.
It is a mattress that offers comfort that adapts to baby's evolution. It is composed of a layer of 3 cm of 100% natural latex (density 90Kg/m3) positioned on a layer of 8 cm of high quality foam (density 21kg/m3). The latex layer and the foam layer are perforated to ensure excellent air circulation and to ensure the mattress is breathable. The temperature is thus better regulated, your baby perspires less and sleeps better. This mattress is therefore used on the firmer side from 0 to 6 months and on the softer side from 6 months. The cover of this mattress is made of TENCEL™, a material derived from eucalyptus pulp with natural air-conditioning properties. TENCEL™ gives a feeling of coolness in summer and warmth in winter. In addition, this fibre wicks moisture away perfectly, which naturally limits the proliferation of bacteria and dust mites, without any added chemical treatment.
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 anti-allergic and antibacterial side. A layer of natural latex (86% purity rate) brings the flex and the rebound which would be missing in a 100% coconut mattress. The mattress cover is made of TENCEL™ to improve temperature regulation. On this mattress baby hardly perspires, he sleeps better. A baby mattress guaranteed without any chemical treatment.
