Red Nose Education

Red Nose recommends that a cot mattress is firm, well-fitting & flat & that a mattress protector is strong & a tight fit.
A soft mattress or sleeping surface can increase the risk of sudden unexpected infant death if baby rolls over onto the tummy.
A woollen underlay would not be suitable if it reduced the firmness of the mattress or was not a tight fit.
This is particularly important when baby is rolling.
