This is a follow up from my diaper free post. I think maybe after the twins were 1 year old, we have re-decorated the bedroom with new beds and guardrail. We have chosen the mattress from Ikea for the kids' bed http://www.ikea.com/my/en/catalog/products/50213259/.
The key features for the mattress as listed is as follows:-
Two different comfort surfaces. The eggbox-shaped surface relieves pressure and has better air circulation than the flat side.
- The cover can be machine washed which helps keep a hygienic sleeping environment for your child.
- Both sides can be slept on - it lasts longer, and keeps fresh for longer.
- Breathable jersey cover that is soft and nice to your child's skin.
The mattress is definitely the best find with the washable feature as it has a zipped along cover. Imagine the sick nights with the children pukes and their pee pee 'accident'.
Just thought I should share this. I have seen some household with children and has occasionally bringing the kids mattress for a 'sun bathing' but that do not really get rid of the bacteria and maybe part of the smell away but with the above mattress, you can always wash and hygiene will not be a major concern.
