Creating a safe, cosy, and comfortable sleeping environment is one of the essential things parents can provide for their little ones. Baby mattresses are pivotal to this, offering a soft yet sturdy base where your little dreamer can rest and get the sleep they need to grow big and strong. The right mattress not only contributes to your baby's comfort but also their safety and growth. Here at Mothercare Malaysia, our array of quality nursery mattresses is designed to offer just the right amount of support to your bub during their precious journey into the land of sweet dreams.
Choosing the Right Baby Mattress for your Nursery
Choosing the right baby mattress involves careful consideration. Here are a few factors to bear in mind:
- Size: The mattress should fit snugly within the crib or cot with no spaces where your baby could potentially get stuck. Additionally, there should be nothing on top of the mattress (such as a blanket or stuffed animal) when your baby is sleeping, as this could pose a suffocation risk.
- Firmness: Babies need a firmer mattress than adults. A firm mattress ensures they get the support they need to develop properly, especially when their bones and muscles are still fragile. Conversely, a soft mattress may mould to the shape of your baby’s head or face, increasing the risk of suffocation or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
- Material: Aim to select a mattress made from non-toxic and hypoallergenic materials. This consideration protects your baby’s sensitive skin and respiratory system from any potential allergens or irritants.
- Ventilation: A good baby mattress should be breathable and facilitate air circulation to prevent overheating, skin irritation, or heat rash. This is especially important in Malaysia, where you might experience warm and humid temperatures even at night.
- Waterproof: Consider a mattress with a waterproof or water-resistant cover, as this can be handy for dealing with inevitable spills and accidents. The cover should fit snugly over the mattress with no gaps or loose spaces that could pose a suffocation risk.

Frequently Asked Questions About Baby Mattresses
Do newborns need a special baby mattress?
Yes, newborn babies need a mattress that's firm, flat, and in good condition. This is because a firm mattress provides newborns with the right level of neck support, which in turn reduces the risk of SIDS or suffocation. As they grow and their weight increases, you can switch to a softer mattress if needed or as and when suitable. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines on the appropriate weight and age for each mattress.
Is a foam or spring mattress better for babies?
Both types have their pros and cons. Foam mattresses are usually lighter and easier to clean, while spring mattresses are durable and provide good support. The most important thing is to choose a mattress of the right size and firmness that fits snugly in your baby's crib.

What should you avoid in a baby mattress?
Avoid mattresses that are too soft as they can pose a suffocation risk for a young baby. It's also advisable to avoid second-hand mattresses due to potential hygiene issues and lack of information about their history (e.g. any damage that may have compromised the internal support structure). Mattresses made of materials that might cause allergies or skin irritation should also be avoided.
